I don't disagree with you.

The flaps taper to nothing at the tips but I would think that decreasing the flap movement would help. As I said above, the Mark II was behind the developments being made at the time. It would still be an interesting project. I hope that someone will build one.

If you are looking for a 3 blade prop for a pattern look at the Master Airscrew three blades. They have a nice shape but are a little heavy in the larger diameters, but for a pattern that you can thin out then do up in carbon, its a good place to start.

If you want to look at some information on molding props here is Wayne Trivin's old web site with lots of information. Wayne and I flew together for several years, he showed me how to mold props. I introduced him to Windy and he showed Windy how to mold tanks and other parts.

Best,    DennisT

Titanium has lower modulus of elasticity so for sufficient stiffness it would have to be a lot thicker than a steel shaft. so there goes the weight gain. Also, bigger dia also increases weight and friction losses of bearings.
And as a sliding pair, you can expect several issues with Ti surfaces.
Beryllium shaft would be nice Smiley

Hi Lauri,Thanx for the info.I stopped by the shop and the titanium was mentioned.I will talk to him about the Beryllium.We want to make it from the best materials even tho some may cost more.Is Beryllium hard to machine or not readily available?Trax

That being said, the pictures on the Mark II box sure makes it an appealing project! The canopy appears to be larger and still has the feel of the stitched canopy and not like a rounded bubble, which would not look as good, and in my opinion looks horrible on the original Barnstormer. The paint scheme is also sharp. Add wheel pants and it is a real looker.

Since it is possibly legal for OTS and certainly for Classic, I hope that we will see the Mark II in contests.  With what he has shown us flying a Ringmaster, Dave Fitzgerald would be unbeatable with this airplane!

   I wonder if it flew any better than the original?  With more flap than elevator travel, and no additional tail volume, it may not fly any better, and possibly worse.

That is a nice looking airplane. Looks like the battery tucks into the inboard side of the fuselage?

I can see what looks like the corner of a bandage under the band of his hat as he turns around but very hard to tell. What was the strap around his head? Is that what you're referring to? Is it some sort of medical device perhaps?

Yes - there is a thin leather strap around his head. Only the front half of Manfred's head appears to be bandaged, so I guess the strap was there to hold the bandage in place and stop it sliding off.

Use 3 M fine line and a good quality masking paper tape.

"The Good, the Ugly and the "Bad.""


Robert is right on the money. As always BTW.  Bow

I use all 3M or this other brand for the dark blue plastic tape.

Dark blue for corners and the 3M green for straight lines and large corners.

1/8" and 1/4" are always my friend. Yellow high stick for masking where needed.

Gotta make sure yout paint sticks.

I do little masking for graphics because I sell vinyl graphics. I don't enter contests, but you can place at the NATS with graphics provided by CFC Graphics. A proven fact!

The ARGO. All those black stripes are vinyl. Don't tell anyone.
