If you plan to e-mail tips or general information to me, I really prefer that
register with the site and post
your tips here instead. I receive far more tips in my e-mail than are
posted on the site. Why not share with everyone?
If you're a beginner and your question is, "Hi, I want to design my own first
airplane. Can you please tell me everything I need to know?" then my answer will
be, 'No I can't. Buy a good trainer kit.'
I have much less available time than I used to and I still get a lot of
e-mail. I can't even claim that I try to answer it all because I simply
can't. If you e-mail and don't hear back from me please don't take it
I can broadly advise in these areas:
What I can't help with:
Electric powered models or
electronics. I keep trying to talk my buddy Mike into writing a few
articles about electrics but without success so far.
Gasoline engines and turbine
A thesis or R/C aircraft design for your
Doctorate in Aerospace Engineering. On the other hand, if you are
prepared to compensate me with a percentage of your lifetime earnings
after I passed your course for you then that's a different situation.
Questions that require a book to answer
properly such as, "How do I
design a model airplane?"
Google Images is a good place to start.
