Re: KR> In-flight Fire

Well that is scary!  Lucky he didn't get to pattern altitude and then  
break out in flames.  Looks like the only thing salvageable would be the  
engine.  Thank goodness the guy will survive!

Was  planning for some air-to-air photos of N6242 this Spring.  An EAA  
Chapter member said he could fly the photo ship using his Tri-Pacer.   On 
January 28, 2017, while attempting to return from a lunch fly-out at  GED, 
Georgetown, DE, he had an in-flight fire seconds after leaving the  runway. 
He set it back down on the same runway and jumped out of the  Tri-Pacer 
while 
it was still rolling on the runway going about 30 miles  per hour.  He hit 
the pavement on his feet, but slammed into the  pavement face down.  He 
sustained a broken nose, broken bone on an  eye socket, throat and lung 
damage from inhaling smoke and flames, 1st and  2nd degree burns on his 
face 
and scalp. Appears he will recover from those  injuries; long term damage 
is 
unknown.  The Tri-pacer coasted to a  stop in the grass next to the runway 
fully engulfed in flames.  About  2 acres of dry grass also burned before 
the 
fire department put it  out.  The white stuff is foam from putting out the 
fire.  I  don't know any further info as to the cause.
Looks like the air-to-air  photo shoot will need to wait a bit  longer.

Re: KR> Video of cylinder w/transparent head

2017-01-28 Thread Tinyauto--- via KRnet
If you like this, check out what else this kid has built.  I like the  one 
where he took 4 single cylinder Briggs engines and put them all together to  
form one 4 cylinder engine.  A bit crude, but still neat!

Forgot  to put a subject in the subject line with the earlier post . .  .
sorry.  

This is a video of a Briggs & Stratton cylinder  with a transparent head
being run with various fuels.   Mesmerizing.

I don't think he said retracts.  He said it had tricycle gear.   Normally 
these are tail draggers.

Re: KR> KR 1 project

Well I must say Dennis is building very different from what is normally  
seen.  The photos bring up a lot of questions.  You may have mentioned  it 
before, but is the sides of this fuselage fiberglass instead of  plywood?  Also 
are the rib to spar shelf brackets temporary?  Neat  canopy.  I am thinking 
this guy has built things other than airplanes  before.  Great that he is 
building in a basement just like me!!   Probably shouldn't have invited him 
to this group as it may corrupt him.  I  like that he has done so much 
without feedback, that he is building trike gear,  and that he is building the 
best KR.  A KR1.

The  folding wing is a one man process: remove the pins, pull the wing 
panel  outboard (it is spring loaded) and rotate it to the rear.

It will fly  with a 2si 70 hp two cycle water cooled engine.  The 
builder is this  far along in just 13 months and hopes to be flying by 
midsummer.  I'm  pushing him to make Lee Summitt but that will be a 
stretch so to those  attending, this will be your last chance for any 
trophies.

I  encouraged Dennis to join the net so you may be able to e-mail him 
direct  in the near future.  Just don't slow down his building.
