Pivot point

Yeah, its all math....That spot vs center of lift, vs static balance, vs hydraulic force available, vs loads at various speeds, vs stick pressure on a boosted system...and many other things I am probably forgetting...I defer to the engineering types!!! I just R and R the parts and do what the AMM says!!

I did some math on my own, regarding the shape of the fuselage, which we have all agreed you "nailed".... Of course, each will have their own opinion and their own results..but I think I'm close!!

To each his (or her) own!!

Halownr,
Why, why the Krapdashian pic? Out of all the beautiful boddies that you could have picked and compared to Jessica and the t-38 you picked her. LOL

Great job on the T-38, can't wait to see her fly.

Kim is beautiful. Now how she became a celebrity while doing nothing to deserve it is beyond me. Not gonna hijack this thread, so if you wanna talk about america's fascination with people who's only contribution to the world is being looked at, send me a PM.

Agree with CN, if shes ready to roll she's ready to fly

Kardashian pic

As I said, to each his (or her) own. I admire her curves...nothing more. She comes on the tube and I just turn the sound off....

The question mark is for you to mentally agree or not. With the age of some of the fellas online here should I have posted a pic of Mae West? Lucille Ball? Betty Grable? Maybe the decision to use Kim is just showing my age...I dunno...

Bottom line, I was paying tribute to the curves of the '38, and the fact that they have been translated so well in 144" of foam splendor.

Still drooling.... Looking forward to seeing the fan units installed and the ducting you come up with.... Schwing!

HA HA HA!!! Just saw the Krap-dashian type-o!!! Love it.

I don’t understand this comparison to women. I’m going to sound like a total nerd for this, but women were not optimized for supersonic flight. If they were they would start getting skinny in the chest area, to account for the, ummmm, "inlets".

Get those fans in yet??? I wanna see pics of the install.

Of course you mean rocket engines right? No matter how many air breathing engines you throw on something they suffer from horrible conditions at transonic speeds that require an inlet to fix. Unless you were implying that the inlet comes with the engine. I'm nuking this....sorry. It’s been a slow Saturday. Where are those power plant install pics?
