<There's a letter in the latest Windsock about the Lloyd C.V woodgrain
question. I must point out that by changing the word 'he' (Hugh Beyts)
'I' (me), this letter now refers to the alternate reality where I met
Platner, whereas in this reality it was Hugh. Sorry about that. I
got the original email and can't remember if I slipped up or it's an
mistake. I also need to clarify that when I described the discussion as
bootless I was merely referring to it's inconclusiveness.
Oo er, and I wasn't demeaning Mr Pearson either, although my comment
maybe that way out of context.
End of public butt-covering service announcement.
Long may your butt be covered!
Slighly breathless that my model is still causing doubt as I thought we
had concluded once we put our boots back on that the grain ran spanwise.
Go on, finish the model!
Look forward to seeing both it and Peter's article.
I still maintain that chordwise would give a torsionally stiffer wing
but that is just a feeling, not evidence that the grain ran that way,
more a sour grapes attitude plus my own experience from balsa days and
the old Kiel Kraft range of rubber powered 'scale' flying models.
