    A little late for the optimum location (yellow is the closest) but here's the S-1S
    drawing;24063Plans call for 3/16" cable for the S-1. I don't know about the much heavier
    Skybolt.

    I think you just need to kick the habit....... Life is better (cheaper, cleaner, healthier --
    except for the CO) when you go smokeless. :)

  • Posted in thread: Aviat style flying wire tensiometer calibration services on 02-23-2017 at 01:24 AM
    I'm planning on setting up a calibration fixture for mine and one other unit but then I'll be
    done. The idea is to create new scales for each unit. Mine may get a modification to expand the
    useful ran...

    The flutes he uses to straighten the ribs are a nice quick way to add 'shrink' to the flange.
    Seeing as I'd be doing just one rib I would be very tempted to bow my form blocks such that the
    rib comes ...

    Yes, and that's yet another option to consider. I think I might be able to do better
    weight-wise with an aluminum rib approach, won't know until I explore this in SWx.

    I'm not sure about the weight, I have not looked at it yet. If I make a profiled rib from .025"
    4130 it will not be light but will it be lighter than a 3/8" x .035" tube with some tabs on it
    to attach...

    Osvaldo,You are using SWx to create beautiful images, you have no need to make drawings from
    your models which, in a way, I envy. Drawings are pretty boring by comparison to what you do
    but they are n...

    I think I have been covering these for about 7 weekends and many evenings :mad:.........I seem
    to remember issuing a warning to you about the effort involved in covering the ailerons a
    couple of years...

    Osvaldo is working in the reverse of my description. He he using 2D drawings to create a 3D
    model of an airplane already designed. I am doing something similar where I use an existing
    design as a basi...

    Kris,Before plans can be drawn you have to create a design and do some engineering. If you
    don't have 3D CAD about the only way to know whether or not all the parts and pieces play well
    together is to...
