I think this is the best method to add stiffness to resist twisting?
With one layer on I still think my fuselage is not quite stiff enough in the twisting direction, but the flex up and down and left and right feels like it is just about good enough. Hopefully I can test it out today.
I "WAS" going to say No , until i read the part about it's the Twisting moment
that needs More strength !
I believe your attacking the problem correctly with that (+ - 45 braid) ; only
way to do it better would be to use a uni-carbon in the same fiber orientation ---
but that would be a Pain without a mold. WITH a mold it's Easy to use stitched.
The stitched + - 45 carbon is Stronger than your braided weave of the same weight & tow-count
because the tows are already Straight ; about almost 30% stronger in tensile and
This one ?
Eppler E836 hydrofoil
Max thickness 12.6% at 42.8% chord.
And i "LIKE" it
Hoping Ya don't mind that i just Stole it from Ya ??
I'm putting That airfoil , on Mine !!!
*** I Just re-did my order to that Super-Cool Eppler airfoil ; mine is staying
at 12.6% thick, with a cord of 127mm, (5"), and the mold length will be 111cm.
That gives me a 16mm thick profile , (should be plenty) ! Time to go do something
else, till my cut-foam comes in .
