I'll give you another challenge to try: The Thunder Gull J--one of the best ultralights out there, and perhaps one of the easier aircraft to design. Here's a link showing the Thunder Gull.... Now if only my life insurance covered ultralight aircraft :)http://www.fix.net/~mbert/j.htm

Hey Greg! Nice looking plane you have selected. Though I would like to correct one little detail. That plane in the picture is actually Giles G-202/CAP-222. Giles G-300 is single seater...

I myself could never fly something I built. I am the type of person who would pick up a rudder and say--"oops, I forgot this". Then I would say, "Heck, don't need it now". We have a color laser at my office...it is hard to replace the toner and fuser and imaging drum--I swear it requires 15 fingers to do it. Somewhere in the process a year or two ago, I pulled an old imaging drum out, heard a sound like a guitar string breaking, and out came this 8 inch long roller. I discretely put it aside, put in the new drum, and the printer has kept on churning for the past year.I hate those extra parts :)

Hey MIkko! what sound should I use the Giles 202 sound or create its own sound?

I think default Extra 200 sounds would do just fine at the beginning... :)

Hi Mikko,I was asking around in the bush forum about 3-views for a Lake Renegade. Someone thought you had been working on one. Do you know if a 3-view can be found?Thanks,John Woodward

Hi John!Send me an e-mail so I can get your e-mail address. I have pretty nice 3-Views for a 270T...BTW, what program are you using to design it? I have pretty nice FSDS-start for the 270T and I was wondering if it would help you if I gave it to you. Anyway, talk about it more via e-mail...

Greg,If you go over to Simviation and then look under design and then resources (I think that is the order but you will see when you get there), there is a list of several 3-view sources. However, I didn't have any luck finding a Luscombe there, so hope you do better.John Woodward

>Hey Mikko, I thought you were gonna send me the lake !!! >:-lol >>No prob, John is welcome to it :-) >>Brian HEHEHEHE, I thought I already sent it to you :(Well, I'm gonna upload it sometime in January when I get back to Joensuu. I'll then pass the URL to both of you. Brian can make the FSDS2 version of it and John can use it as reference if it helps him...ps. I'll send the 3-views to John later today via e-mail now that I got his address. Well, this is of course if I can remember ;-)

Boy, are you going to have fun writing the Performance file for that.Just make sure it doesn't exceed VNE in the climb...

That is what I am afraid of it will exede the VNE in a climb so for that I will make the VNE high over 400MPH

In that case you should fit it with speed brakes to slow it down. You should also make the gear retract to stop it getting ripped off at those speeds.

>In that case you should fit it with speed brakes to slow it >down. You should also make the gear retract to stop it >getting ripped off at those speeds. I don't think so. Ever heard of Turbo Raven? It was based on Giles G200 and it had 700HP PT-6 on the nose and still no speed brakes or retractible gears ;)http://www.waynehandley.com
