Rad Cam engine by Neal Fulco
Does anyone have any new information on Mark Bierle's ( of Earthstar Aircraft) Rad Cam engine? All the web searches mention that the engine was at Sun-n-Fun 2003 and Airventure 2003. Was he at either of those fly-ins this year? Thanks Neal

Nice static port for RVs and other homebuilts by Bug Dout
I'm building an RV-9A and finally installed the static ports today. Vans provides a pair, one for each fuselage side, made from a couple of pull rivits: Remove the stem and voila, instant static port. They seem to work well but nobody likes the look. SafeAir provides a nice kit with CNC machined...

Narco Com IIA Wiring connections? by Rod
I picked up an old Narco Com IIA radio. I'd like to wire it up at home in the garage so I can listen to the traffic and approach control flying overhead. I've searched the internet high and low looking for documentation that would identify the connections on the back. I can't find any, not...

Experiences with vendors by Bug Dout
Van's Air Force (VAF) is probably the largest homebuilding site on the Web. But it's devoted to Vans Aircraft homebuilts (the RV series). Worse--for the purpose of this post--it actively deletes negative posts about vendors. So you get all the praises of good vendors, but negative comments are...

Group Activity by Wayne Paul
I have been off this group for over a year. Previously this was a very active group; however, there has been very few messages since I returned. It may be due to my service provider, or maybe with the passing of a few key members the overall activity has significantly diminished. The main...

Filament wound airfoils. (again) by [email protected]
Howdy, I was channel surfing the other day, and caught a glimpse of how they make rotor blades for the Hind MI-8 helicopter on RT. (Russian News) Very Interesting. They use small sections of metal (aluminum?) honeycomb cut to the shape of the airfoil, align it them with the spar on the leading and...

Thoughts on GDI in aircraft engines. by [email protected]
Howdy, Gasoline Direct Injection (GDI) has been integrated into quite a few automotive engines over the past few years. After reading an article about it, and googling for the availability of GDI fuel injectors I started thinking this might be a cool direction to go in for those persons...

Fiber alignment and twist. by [email protected]
Howdy, If I have a long recatangular box like a spar, and want to reduce twisting in the long axis, is it better to lay out the fiberglass mat with the fibers aligned at a 45 to the length, or parallel to the length? For the sake of argument, presume that all I'm concerned about is twist.
