Icom IC-A6 / IC-A24A Radio Mount (3D Printed)

3-D Printed Handheld Radio Mount


Although originally designed for the a Piper J-3 Cub, hence the color.  This mount can be used on any aircraft including the EMG-6. The radio mount is designed with a split clamp system which allows the installation and positioning on to a 7/8" diameter tube. We can design other size clamps that are interchangeable with different sized tubing if anyone has a specific request. The mounting system requires (4) (3/16" Dia) Cap Head Screws. (4) (3/16") Washers under the head of the cap screw. additionally there is a hex cut out in the clamp that will automatically hold a 3/16" nylon nut. (4) required. Mount can be mounted either horizontal or vertical relationship to the tube.

You can download the STL files if you wish to print your own radio mount. the files are located under 02-90-10-10 ICOM Radio Mount in the builders database.

"Stronger 3-D Printed Parts (Part 1)" Sport Aviation / Experimenter "Technically Speaking" Article July 2016

Stronger 3-D Printed Parts (Part 1)


With the extensive proliferation of LPD (Layered Plastic Deposition) 3-D printers, their use in experimental aircraft has begun to grow exponentially. One of the most commonly asked questions, is whether or not we can reliably produce structural components using a 3D printer. The answer is an emphatic yes. Just as with any other process or material, it has its limitations as well as its strengths. Learning to utilize the 3-D printer’s strengths and work within its limitations is the key to its successful utilization.

Because the LPD printers are laying down one layer of plastic at a time the resulting component has a “grain” to it.  And much like wood and other materials the direction of the grain can significantly change the structural characteristics. If you have ever tried to karate chop a board, you know the trick is to strike the board along or parallel with the grain. The amount of force required to break the board across the grain can be 10 times greater than breaking the board with the grain.

Sterna Propeller

3 Bladed Sterna Propeller



July 19, 2016   We Receive The 3 Bladed Sterna Propeller

We received one of the propellers that we will be testing on the R and D motor. We have had extensive consultation with Sterna propellers about the propeller that would work the best on the EMG-6 with the 20 hp electric motor. We have selected a propeller blade section that will optimize the performance at a very specific profile. Mainly the ability to operate in a cruise configuration at 45 mph.  We currently have 2 other propellers that are designed for the same motor that we will be testing as well. as we develop data once we begin the flight test program will use this page to accumulate information about this propeller. If the propeller works as expected we plan to offer this as one of the primary propellers for use on the EMG-6. We also plan to become an OEM dealer for the propeller and have them in stock or customers of the EMG-6. We are also working with Sterna for a propeller to be used on the Polini 250 motor as well.

I was first introduced to the Sterna propeller 2 years ago at Air Venture 2014. Sterna propellers are manufactured in China. Their footprint into the US is still somewhat small compared to other manufacturers but they are beginning to gain popularity. If you are at Air Venture, Sterna will have a booth set up and you can talk to them and see some of their other products in one of the big hangers.

July 19, 2016 Display Boards

Before every show we have to work on the advertising, brochures, and display boards to demonstrate some of the different capabilities and construction methods that we use. This year we have added to the display boards a 3-D printed parts board that shows some of the different components that are used both to manufacture the EMG-6 as well as components that are used directly on the aircraft. In addition after the show is over we have to stay a few days extra and do the "Homebuilder Hints" videos for EAA. This year They have requested that we do some videos on both the 3-D printing process as well is the Solid Works software.

The 3D Printing Revolution Sport Aviation / Experimenter "Technically Speaking" Article June 2016

The 3D Printing Revolution


We are on the cusp of a new era in experimental aviation like we have never seen before. We often hear doom and gloom from those who have been in the general aviation market and who have seen the downturn in the number of active pilots and airplanes coming off the factory floor. The overused cliché “it’s always darkest just before the dawn” is really apropos in this circumstance. We are here to tell you that the future of aviation looks very bright. There are several paradigm shifting technologies that are changing the world of aviation equivalent to that the Wright brothers first flight, the dawn of the jet age, and Burt Rutan’s contributions to composite aircraft. Some of the most exciting of these new technologies which we have embraced, include, electric propulsion, 3-D solid modeling software, and 3-D printing. Over the next couple of months, we will be writing articles exploring, in-depth, some of these new technologies which are rapidly becoming tangible for the average aircraft builder. In this article, we’re going to take a closer look at the possibilities of using 3-D printing in experimental aircraft.


With today’s proliferation of 3-D solid modeling software available to the average experimental aircraft builder, we are now starting to see the leveraging of this technology into the average builder’s toolbox. We have been using 3-D modeling software for the past 30 years, and “Solidworks” extensively for the last 15 years. We have become so dependent upon it, that we feel it is one of the most valuable tools that we use on a daily basis. With the ability to 3-D model components virtually on your desktop, the cost of design has plummeted dramatically.  It allows us to import the 3-D models into other software and export g-code (computer numerical control (CNC) programming language) for manufacturing of components on different CNC machinery. Seeing this potential, we purchased our first CNC machine some 15 years ago. Since then, we have continued to exploit the advantages of this technology and we now operate 6 different CNC machines. The latest of these “machines” if you can call it that, is a 3-D printer.

Tube Marking Tools

Tube Marking Tools

For the builders that are building the EMG-6 from plans and the basic kits, There are a lot of holes that need to be drilled in the tubing throughout the build process. As a result we have developed a series of tube marking tools to assist us in the shop for ensuring accuracy during the marking and drilling process. And although we have many of the parts being manufactured with CNC machinery, there are still a significant number of tubes that need to be marked and drilled during the manufacturing and especially assembly process.

We have found these tools to be so useful in the shop that we have decided to make them available to the builders of the EMG-6. This series of tube marking tools that can significantly improve the ease and accuracy of marking round tubing.
 
These tube marking tools have a multitude of features which can only be created practically through the use of  3-D printing technology.

The tube marking tools are manufactured from 3-D printed ABS plastic, and are color-coded to easily identify each size. From 1/2" up to 2" in 1/8" increments. These are the standard tubing sizes used in the aviation industry.

Features

1.  Color-Coded for Easy Identification
2.  Radial marking guide in 15° increments
3.  "V" marking slots for super precision.
4.   Alignment pin holes for   1/16, 1/8,  3/16, 1/4
5.  Non-marring 1/4-20 nylon thumbscrew for secure positioning.
6.  Center punch holding fixture.
7.  Lanyard attachment hole.
8.  Size markings embossed on housing.
9.  Perimeter marking guide on base.

R&D Motor

 This page is dedicated to  any updates and information regarding the R&D Motor.


 June 9, 2016   Motor Update

 

 Today we had a meeting with Ed Donovan owner of R&D cable. Ed and his team are developing an electric motor that will be used on the EMG-6 electric motor glider. The design parameters are basically to design a 20 hp continuous operating motor turning at 2500 RPM and producing approximately 65 foot-pounds of torque. We will be spinning a 48 inch diameter propeller. this motor is simply a dummy motor that does not have the winding's and magnets inside but was delivered so that we can use it for the development of the motor mounting system on the EMG 6 as both as a pusher and as a tractor on the to the wing pylon locations. The bolt pattern is the standard two-stroke Rotax engine bolt pattern. the bearing is the same as the front bearing on the Rotax E gearbox. The total motor weight will be in the neighborhood of 25 pounds when completed. There are 6 mounting locations on the rear of the motor housing. During testing at full power  the outer housing gets slightly warm but the winding's and the magnets remain cool even at full power operation. They are still undergoing some operational tests on the motor and perfecting the final design before going into the  mass production phase and developing the tooling for the stamping dies for the winding core. The expectations are that the efficiency of the motor will exceed 95%.. And reliability and durability are  key components in the development of the motor. I would expect that this motor will have a TBO in excess of 10,000 hours. And overhaul cost will be the replacement of 2 bearings. We have been told that we should expect to have a operational motor available for installation before we depart for the Oshkosh airshow.

Low-Budget Hydro-forming


We are often looking for methods for creating parts on our experimental aircraft that replicate the professionalism of factory built aircraft. The biggest stumbling block is usually the cost of set up for fancy tooling and machinery. Yet, you might be surprised by what you can accomplish in your own small workshop. In fact, many of the greatest ideas in aviation originated from small workshops like yours.

"Spark Plugs and The Rotax Engine: Part 3" Sport Aviation / Experimenter "Technically Speaking" Article April 2016

Spark plugs and the Rotax Engine Part 3



In part 1, we discussed the theoretical aspects of the spark plugs. In part 2, we talked about the more practical aspects of installation and maintenance of the spark plugs installed in the Rotax engine. In this, part 3, we are going to take a look at using the spark plug as a troubleshooting tool.



The engine will continuously communicate her condition to you through a multitude of sources. One of the most powerful sources of information about an engine’s internal condition comes from what the spark plugs have to tell you. We call this “reading” the spark plug. (Figure: 1) One advantage of reading the spark plugs is that they don’t often lie. Engine instrumentation can give us a lot of clues about what’s going on inside the combustion chamber, but they are limited, both in the scope and in their accuracy. We see aircraft owners pulling their hair out, modifying the engine, trying to make it operate in a configuration so that the instruments read “normal”, only to find out months later that their instrumentation has been indicating incorrectly all along. By this time, they have modified the engine so far from the stock configuration that the road back to proper operation if often frustrating and expensive.
When we talk about reading the spark plug, we are primarily talking about reading the color of the ceramic insulator that surrounds the center electrode. The automotive industry, and in particular the racing industry, has carried this reading of the spark plugs  to a very fine, nuanced science. And although engine to engine readings vary substantially, we can take away from some general principles that you should be able to apply to your particular engine. It is common that we can get information about all segments of the engine operation from idle to full throttle by looking at selected segments of the spark plug.  Idle operation  can be revealed by looking at the face  of the threaded spark plug body. Midrange, the place where you spend most of your operating time on the engine, shows itself primarily towards the end of the ceramic insulator where the center electrode protrudes. And full throttle operation is more indicative of a ceramic insulator deep inside the area where the ceramic makes contact with the spark plug body. Now I caution you, these principles need to be associated with  a significant understanding of the operating characteristics of your particular engine. Even the visual appearance of a Rotax 582 two-stroke engine versus a Rotax  912 four-stroke engine under normal operating conditions  will have a substantially different appearance.

In part 1 of this article, we discussed the theoretical aspects of the spark plugs installed in the Rotax engines. In this article, we will take a more in-depth look at the practical aspects and the “how to” of the spark plug in the Rotax engine.


Spark Plug Removal. When removing the spark plugs, during an annual inspection or any time for that matter, keep in mind that there is a lot of information to be had by “reading the spark plugs.” A spark plug rack is a useful way to keep track of the cylinder position of the spark plugs as you remove them. The spark plug rack should be labeled with both the cylinder number as well as top or bottom position. (Figure 1)

53-50 Wings to Fuselage Fairing

Builder Guide

53 Fuselage

53-50 Wing to Fuselage Fairing



This is a one-off prototype wing to fuselage fairing that were making. We will update this once we get to the production aircraft.  This will be the premise for the design for the production fairing that utilizes the BRS ballistic parachute system.

Before we begin the prototyping process for this fairing it's important that you have a visual picture in your head of what it's going to look like.

With that in mind we get started with building the center box that we will use to build the fairing from.  Were making this box from 1/4 inch plywood  and the skins from 1/8 inch mahogany door skin.  Both of these pieces of plywood are relatively cheap $12-$15 for a 4 x 8 sheet.

We create bulkheads for the sides of the center box that will carry the profile from the fuselage boom up over the ballistic parachute and transition down to the forward keel. We will need the transition to occur slightly above the keel so that we can use the keel overhead to assist in climbing in and out of the aircraft.

Spark Plugs and The Rotax Engine:  Part 1



We continue to see problems surrounding the use of spark plugs in Rotax engines. Many of the rules which we have used in the past for typical aviation type spark plugs, used on air cooled engines, no longer apply to the automotive type spark plugs used in a Rotax engine. As with most technical subjects, an underlying understanding of the theory and physics involved is essential to our ability to make good judgments about the use and operation of spark plugs. So let’s start with the basics.


The spark plugs used in the Rotax engines are specific to each type of engine. Figure: 1. The most prolific of the Rotax engines is the 912S 100 hp and it uses the DCPR8E. Figure: 2. Using this plug let’s look at the part number designation and what each one of the numbers and letters indicate for the design of the spark plug.

 

Spark Plug Size: The (DC) in the part number is the thread diameter and pitch. Looking at the NGK part numbering chart, it indicates that this is a 12 mm diameter spark plug with a 1.25 mm pitch on the threads and uses a 16mm wrench on the hex portion of the spark plug.
Reach: The Last Letter in the part number (E) indicates that this plug has a 19 mm thread reach. This is measured from the base of the plug, above the gasket, to the last thread.
Shape: The (P) in the part number indicates this plug has a projected center electrode insulator. The projected center electrode insulator is what you would normally recognize as a typical spark plug and is of course the most common type.
Construction: And the (R) in the part number indicates this is a resistor type spark plug. When a spark jumps the gap on a spark plug, it creates a high frequency burst of energy. This creates radio frequency interference or (RFI) which can generate significant interference with your radios and other electronic equipment. Placing a resistor within the spark plug significantly reduces this RFI. Figure: 3.

Heat Range: The (8) in the part number is an indicator of the heat range. The heat range of the spark plug is designated by the ability of the spark plug to dissipate heat that is absorbed from the combustion chamber. The heat within the insulator nose is transferred into the body of the spark plug and out into the cylinder head which is cooled by air or by water/antifreeze.

Carol Carpenter Fly's the EMG-6

By Carol Carpenter

The thing about life with Brian is that everything happens "suddenly." There was no discussion leading up to Brian setting up the EMG for me to fly this evening . . .so I did not have time anticipated the event. He just asked me to sit in the plane and started adjusting the seat. The next thing I know, I am in the pilot seat and, to be honest, somewhat apprehensive.
I am buckled in, with a helmet on, and thinking. . . I don't know about this.
