Re: Wright Stuff C

Klast, If you cut the blade shape at about a 30 degree angle from a standard “party plastic cup”, which is about 4.5” tall with a diameter at the rim of about 3 7/8”, you should have usable pitch distribution. As the rules this year will produce an airplane that will need to fly relatively fast (hi...

Re: Wright Stuff C

Klast, By “curvewise” are you referring to the airfoil shape across the width of the blade (referred to as the chord of the blade)? Or, are referring to the twist of the blade along its span, which effectively adjusts the blade angle at the particular blade radius relative to the free stream of air...

Good job. If you have questions as you read the material in the links from Jeff Anderson’s post and construct propellers definitely go ahead and ask them here.

so how exactly would you make it so that the blades are exactly the same curve wise?

Re: Wright Stuff C

Klast, See Jeff Anderson’s post of helpful links on the previous page. Especially the propeller info for the My Way penny plane on page 87 of the middle link. For a more efficient propeller forming method see the INAV120 F1L propeller article or the Hobby Shopper EZB article, also both linked in Je...

Re: Wright Stuff C

How do you all transport your planes? I have been using cardboard chip boxes (30 pack lays) with supports for the past few years of helicopter, but I'm not sure that they are appropriate for wright stuff. I have seen the f1d style travel boxes, but I do not have the tools to make something with tha...

that's alright, give it a spin. i have extremely shaky hands but i am a builder and only a builder. do what you love and what you're passionate about. it'll lead to some real good stuff in the future.

Re: Wright Stuff C

hello,
so recently, our team has been considering homemade props and we have been having issues with making sure that the curves are the same on both blades, any advice on how to make this an easier process?
