Re: Spitfire expert wanted for a request from over the pond

There's this magic website called 'Google'.

If you type 'Spitfire Brunhilde' in and select 'Images', there's some.

It must work in America too??

Re: It's our money!!!

If there's that much money in it, set yourself up in business, win the contract for the bargain price of £50k per Pico Z and see how much money you're left with at the end of the contract...

Yes, there is money to be made, but the costs of just tendering for the contract will be huge.

Re: Onboard Charging

John, anything's possible it just might not be easy! What kind of batteries would you want to charge? Lithium's would be a bit tricky to manage, but NiMh or lead acid would be easier to make work. Although, unless you were thinking of going for an Atlantic crossing, it'd be easier to use a charger b...

Re: What are your goals for 2013

I think if I can manage to mostly stay awake & do any flying at all I'll declare the year a success!

Re: ** New - Personal Accident Insurance **

Brian, we can probably put up with you for a couple more years...no guarantees after that!

As a reminder though, there is NO age limit on the model flying insurance, it's only the new Personal Accident cover that has a limit imposed by the insurance company.

** New - Personal Accident Insurance **

I’m pleased to announce that as of now, all LMA members have Personal Accident insurance in addition to the Civil Liability cover currently included in the membership. This extra insurance is provided at no extra cost to members, and gives an extra benefit of LMA membership. A full summary of the co...

Re: Bradford seminar

Would be interesting to see a map showing the location of Lma members and then working out a central point just for interests sake. E verywhere is miles from Lincolnshire anyway :mrgreen: Interesting indeed.... For the main chunk of members, it seems the center is about Coventry....and the M62 is a...

Re: How do you measure G?

No wonder that didn't work- if you're sitting on the wing there's a concentrated load going into the structure, not representative of flight loads at all. If you're going to test the repaired wing using yourselves as ballast, you need to lie on it. If you lie face down, nose at the wing tip, arms ba...

Re: How do you measure G?

Ok, so how would you support the wing and add 270lbs to it to see if the wing could take that weight? Ken Click the link on my earlier post & scroll down to 'Onex Wing Static Load Tests' Load Case 19. Basically, put the wing upside down on a workmate or similar & ballast up with sandbags. I...

Re: How do you measure G?

In pictures, the 'Load Case 19' at the bottom of the page below gives a fairly good indication of the load testing process. http://www.sonexaircraft.com/research/updates/onex/onex_update_121010.html As a rough estimate, the load distribution on the wing will be very similar to the layout of sandbags...

Re: LMA/BFMA Insurance

Ron,

Negotiations are ongoing with the BMFA, but the wheels of power within the BMFA, although like those of a bus in that they go round and round, go round quite slowly!

We are hoping to have further updates shortly.
