Just a fledgeling
Is there a formula or spreadsheet on tower/teeter bolt height for the Dragon Wings?
Thanks XXavier, but that just adds more questions.XXavier;n1139510 said:More...
Thanks David. Would it matter if mine is a single place? Your Dominator is tandem right? Or would it just be about the weight?Gyro28866;n1139521 said:Hello Bobby:
I have a set of 27' Dragonwings on my Dominator.
I will get by the airfield and get some measurements and post them here for you.
I hope you may solve the problem soon, but (it seems to me) it may be a problem of thrust available, and not of rotor size. Perhaps a different propeller (or a different pitch, if adjustable) could be of help... Good luck...AirCommandPilot;n1139524 said:Thanks XXavier, but that just adds more questions.
My issue is I have a single place Air Command with a heavy Subaru EA82. With my 200 lbs of weight added to the 635 lbs of machine, and 25' SkyWheels I'm not getting the climb performance I would like (during the summer). Last winter the thing would rise in the air like an elevator. I'm getting around 435 lbs of thrust in the heat, and was getting 455 lbs during the winter.
My guess is I need a 27' rotor to make up for the weight. I might have access to borrow a set of 27' Dragon Wings from a two place dominator to test out my 'guess', but I would have to use taller tower plates on my head. I'm just trying to figure out where my teeter bolt needs to be if I get to test the 27' rotor.
I don't know the specifics of the Dragon wing e.g. the blade CG and Blade weight. This info should already be out here. I just haven't been able to find it.
