Thread: Rotor Blade C.of.G posn.
22/11/2019 19:47:17

Hi Richard,

Many thanks indeed for your comments. My blades are also 60mm width as per the plan and as my c.g. position is similar i can now proceed with them. (What a relief)

Kind Regards

Tony

Hi Richard,

I am about to venture into my first Autogiro build. (Cruiser). Having purchased the control head from Coolwind I thought i would start on the blades as i find these a bit daunting. I have made 4 blanks ready for shaping. However after final shaping of the 1st blade I found the c.of.g position to be approx. 22mm from the L.E. whereas from the picture in the magazine article it would appear to be about 12mm ? Is my wood too heavy. (I purchased med/hard balsa.) If this is critical do i trim say 5mm off the T.E.to move posn. neare to L.E. and how would this affect flight. I think that i am in for an interesting learning curve here.

Any assistance would be appreciated

Regards

Tony
