ordered the RW-22 Tiger Moth Plans


January. 12, 2005:

check cashed


Febuary 11, 2005:

Lo and Behold the plans are here!!! They came at 2:30 PM yesterday and by 3:AM I went to bed. Up at 5AM. Thanks Roger.

I must say the Plans are much better that what I was expecting.

Febuary 18, 2005

After going over the plans a million time and watching the two video 4 times and after consulting Roger Mann,

I will be changing the 1/4 x 1/4 ribs to 5/16T x 3/8W.

Then I did up a full size drawing of the wing bow.

I am working on changing the fuselage to use a lower wing that is swept back 6 degrees to match the top wing.

The lower wing ailerons will be shorten by three bays so I can curve the root of the trailing edge.

I started doing a new wood list that will give me the length of wood and what part to make from that piece.

What I found

Plans

Fig 10 Correction


Febuary 22, 2005:

I have gone through all the plans and put most of the plane (full size) on Autocad to get the right Length of each piece. Now I have to see how many piece I can get to ad up to no more than 6 Feet with the least amount of waste.

The topice on the Ragwing RW-22 Tiger Moth Rudder and Vertical Stabilizer Changers FIG 20-21


March 12, 2005:

The Material list on Fig 2, for the ribs, is wrong. Fig 2 states 1/4 X1/4 X 36 135 each. Should read 148 each, from the best I can figure out. It seems that the 135 is for the wing Roger shows in the video. One bay short, 3 length (36"each) x 4 = 12 + 135 =148. Did any one come up with something different?


March 17, 2005:

I did the Dimension for the wing bows. Where as all wing will have six degees of swep back the wing tips are all the same. FIG 9 WING BOWS


April 14, 2005:

Went to Sun-N-Fun and found a REAL DH 82A TIGER MOTH Pictures *A Must See* Also I got T-88.


April 25, 2005:

Ordered wood to make the ribs. It will take two week to get here. After Sun-N-Fun I decided to us the 1/4 Square for the ribs.


MAY 16, 2005:

Ordered wood Here.
