Thanks for the info, I had visions of a wobble and slapping one of the pods on the runway on landing and having it get shredded and throwing parts everywhere. Rock (not too much on landings) On! Dag.

Thanks for the offer. I'll try to find the needed images but it may not be easy. The plane turned out to be a one-off when no orders came in for it in spite of United and American Airlines getting lots of demonstrations, especially when the original order from Trans-Canada Airlines (now Air Canada, or Air Clumsy......) was cancelled.

I've got the book and a contact out in Calgary that may be able to get me some informatin, plus I'll try the National Aviation Museum who somehow "managed" to get the nose section when the plane was broken up.

Speaking of wobble and slapping a pod on the runway, I know a 1:1 B-52 wing tip has a 5foot wing flex differential between at rest and in flight, hence the need for the sponsons. Have you determined how much wing tip flex there will be?

The full-scale B-36 had less than 3 degrees from the outboard nacelles out to the tip. In the testing of my wing 1.0 with 105 pounds(my son setting on it) I feel I will have very little (1-3 degrees). The wing has such a thick airfoil (not for strength on the full-scale but as to have room for fuel) that it is extremely strong.

We shall see though, I would be lying to say I am not think about deflection every time I hold a 32 ounce jet pod in my hand and see that huge moment they will be hanging on....

Thanks, DAG

Sooooooo do you think the 36 will be ready for SEFF 2012? Jack and I can save you a spot next to ours to set up like you did before. Come to think of it, you'll probably need both of our generators and all our chargers to get all those batteries topped off .

I do not want to Jinks myself, but that is a target I have in mind, but I have to get her thru all the testing I want to do, then I have to find a new AMA inspector to sign her off....... My past inspector got tired of some politics and quit.......

Thanks, DAG

Damon, I happen to know the IMAA over weight inspector, his name is Charlie Spencer. pm me if you want his contact info. he lives in Oklahoma city. I am sure he would love to do the inspection for the 36.

For 55-75 pounds the builder can inspect it, then needs to do 3 proving flights for a AMA over 55 pounds inspector.

Over 75, but under 125 the AMA inspector inspects my plane, design, controls, control surfaces, CG, weight, there is a list of stuff. Then I do 3 proving flights and I am set for a year.....

Thanks, DAG

I may take you up on it, if you get a chance you might ask him to browse thru this thread so he knows and understands my design and build techniques...

Thanks a ton....

If you want to see everything that is required, check out AMA's Doc# 520 A, B and C at this link.

I think getting an N-number assigned takes just as much work

Thanks, DAG[/QUOTE] What happens after a year? they set up the hoops and you get to jump through them again? Or is that just because normal wear and tear on model aircraft (bad landings, transportation, hangar rash)?
