That terrifying sound before the silence. Migrating my F27 guts to a new fuselage.

It took hundreds of flights and 4 months, but I critted out. With
brief lapse in situational awareness, I corkscrewed my stryker into th
ground. Knowing the law of entropy, I picked up a replacement fuselag a few weeks ago. :rolleyes:
Are there any tips I should know about building out the new fuselage? I'm interested in setting the powerplant angle of attack. Is there a limit to how much torque to put on the screws so not to damage the foa or affect the angle of attack for the prop? Are there any critica tolerances or settings to remember

But how much weight did you add to the aircraft ? I would think all the extra weight would really ruin the flying characteristics.

Anyone knowing and understanding entropy should have no problem with mundane subjects such as mounting an engine. :>)

CTD,
Thanks, great info.
In that post, Glacier Girl stated: -Before you fly check the side to side and front to back angles on you motor. From the rear, motor should be dead straight in line with th fuselage center line. If it isn't your bird will want to keep turnin in one direction. Front to back alignment is critical to proper flight Remove one tail fin, take a straight edge(a yard stick works well), lin it up with the motor shaft back to front, if you follow that line i should exit at the center of the nose cone,from the side view. Of angles on this will cause the bird to want to climb badly o acceleration,the rear of the mount is too high vs the front. Or it wil dive if the opposite exists. Your bird should fly level no matter wha the throttle setting is.- This is the kind info I'm looking for. Other planes I have require a offset relation to the prop rotation. I wasn't sure this craft was th same. GG seems to have a wealth of knowledge and experience with th f27.

Who said "NOSE CONE"???? Nose cones go on rockets....spinners go onpropellors.... nose cone? Yechhhhhh....unless of course, it is a pusher with a rounded nose...then I suppose you could call it a nose cone...but I still think it is incorrect.

... and in fact, it is!
(And if you have e big enough motor and battery, it's very rocket-esque :)

Incorrect or not, it's a popular term. Especially with the glider guys, where there's often literally a nose that fits over the nose of the plane. (Instead of a canopy or something similar.)

Woohoo! Where's the party?

Frank,
I understood perfectly, but probably from my old occupation. Searc the web for LGM30F and you'll understand.
Doug, Thanks for having my back
