Could I trouble you to add the optimal center of mass and CG to the drawing you recently posted. I am working on a design to convert an Airbike to a gyro. I have a set of plans and a n airframe to play with. So far, I have determined that the CG for the aircraft appears to be close to the center of the pilot. I don't know if repeating that matters but if you could point out the results I should get doing a double hang test, I would appreciate the help.
Bonjour Jean Claude.
I always read your messages in this forum because I like going to bed knowing a little more and you are a source of very good information.
But this morning I have realize that you are the same person that designed and built the Pelican, a plane extremely interesting to me. I cannot refrain from expressing my admiration to such a person like you.
Hi from the UK
there are a few , very few single seat pilots left in the UK, we would like to become a deregulated category which will enable us to inovate and bring our machines up to modern standards. to help ius in this do you have any accident statistics from France which is much more deregulated than the UK. single seat vs factory built accidents, accidents due to improper experimentation, design or build quality. the officials think we will build unsafe machines and want examples from other deregulated countries. it's hard to get statistics for deregulated flying machines ... as they are unregulated with no reporting !
if you have anythin, anything it will help us a lot thanks Peter
Im an aeronautical engineer with fixed wing design experience, im currently designing an gyro and have lot of problems and confusion over the aerodynamic calculations. I read your posts regarding your design. Please suggest or provide me some design study material or programed spreadsheets etc, which can help me a lot.
