Re-finishing brushed-on AFS/Stewart? by CB
I'm looking seriously at a project that was covered in Ceconite and finished with the AFS /Stewart system. The topcoat was brushed on, with less-than-lovely results. (I feel compelled to name the plane "The Brush Stroke") It was signed off as airworthy, but I'm wondering whether re-finishing (as...

Airborne DF by ccwillwerth
Hi All, I am fitting my homebuilt with instruments and radios, and wanted to add a Direction Finder. I wanted a doppler type, but with small antennas in a 4 point aray with a small dimension or distance between the antennas. Am I really far out of reason, or is this an achievable goal? Charlie

12 to 24v up-converter by ccwillwerth
I am trying to build the Jim Weir/Kitplanes June-06 "Quick and Dirty 12 - 24 Up-Converter." 1. Can D101 and Q101share the same heat sink electrically or must they be isolated? 2. I can not locate a "resistor form." Can R101 be wound around a dowel or other object and installed like a...

Volt / Ammeter by ccwillwerth
How is a shunt determined for a digital volt meter to determine amp? Can a voltmeter that is using the measured voltage for its own power be set up on a shunt to measure amps? Charlie

Volt/Ammeter by ccwillwerth
In Kitplanes January 2002 issue, Jim Weir wrote on how to build a volt/ammeter from a Radio Shack 910-4919 digital voltmeter. The Radio Shack people advised me that they no longer carry the voltmeter. Does anyone know if there is a substitute? Can one of these cheap multimeters from throw-away...

Aircraft antennas by ccwillwerth
Hi, I am about ready to cover my Cub type airframe, but need a place to attach a com antenna. I was considering brazing a plate to the airframe so that it would be just under the fabric. The antenna is the type that has a ceramic insulator on the bottom of the antenna that insulates the...

Electronic design considerations by CD
Hello, I'm curious about avionics circuits in high altitude conditions (60,000ft+). What kind of design considerations are taken into account? I've heard about radiation effects on certain devices especially computers / microcontrollers, but I'm also curious about other factors.

Newbie Question, really: That first flight by Cecil Chapman
A question I've always wanted to ask homebuilders is based on how I can see one could go through the process of building through lots of hard work and dedication - but how do you get yourself to do that first flight? I would think a thousand questions would fill one's mind (ex: did I tighten...

Old Plans, New Part Numbers by [email protected]
I am working with 40 year old plans that call out AN365-6 Nuts. Since they are used in conjunction with AN6 Bolts (24 of them) to attach the main spars together, I am assuming they are locknuts. Is the AN363-624 Metal Lock Nut a good match or good substitution? Gotta have something to hold 49 feet...

Racing Airplane Questions..... by Cessna140lb
I've got two questions some RAH folks might be able to answer. I've done some googling with no luck... What does/did(?) the Parker JP-350 look like? It seems it was a homebuilt unlimited racer with a big engine. Are there any pics out there? The American Air Racing site didn't seem to have any...

BLAIR was a VISIONARY by Charles Douglas Wehner
No - not Tony Blair. I am talking about Eric Arthur Blair, who wrote under the name of George Orwell. He was a "Redcap" - a military policeman - in India. He was apalled at the maltreatment of the Indian people. Clearly, he had noticed that there were "Brothers" amongst the British "authorities"...
