So awesome HAS ANY ONE ELES DONE ANY OTHER CAN NOT DO MODS !!!!! I WOULD LOVE TO KNOW ABOUT !!!! TNKS TO ALL OF U ON THIS GROUP ps some one told me there was a wing mode.cut 45deg
So, if I put an 800 HP turboprop engine on the front of my RV-9A and it results in a way out of spec C.G. position and breaks all kinds of standard engineering practices, but I successfully fly it without hurting my self or anyone else..... does that mean it is a good idea?
Experimenting is good. But if you are going to experiment you should get educated on all of the engineering disciplines that could come into play with what you are designing / experimenting with.
A significant one has been pointed out in this thread. No comments provided whether it was considered or whether testing is being done to verify it is an issue.....
If that is the case, that is not the type of experimenting this peer group should be encouraging IMHO.
