catchrow Posted October 19, 2009 Share Posted October 19, 2009 Hi Forum, I am doing my homework (strange i know!!) before the long anticipated build begins in the near future, by doing a w&b estimate as there will be a few mods based around mainly, O-360, elect nose/speed brake, longer nose, me in the front (wide we go!- calcs already done for wing bending moment etc). To this end I have the following data for a check w&b pre build: O360: add 80lbs typical @ fs140 (over a 0-235) Battery (original): 20lbs @ fs19 New Battery 22lbs @ wherever it ends up (0-15" mine will have a long nose) Fuel xxxlbs@ fs104.5 Oil 8lbs @fs140 Pilot , pax etc i I have, question: how do these numbers above look please? Also does anyone have an estimate on : Propeller (40lbs? at what fs?) say a typical 3 blade job. Prop extension: weight and locn? Spinner weight A typical avionics weight (equip at inst panel) Baggage pods: empty weight and full weight , locn I will be adding a Willheimson Electric nose lift. what do they weigh? Also Could a couple of people please give an indication of a typical empty airframe weight (sans fuel, oil etc notewhat toys are in it) and more importantly, fs location for the empty aircraft? This will give me a better idea of a bare weight to use as a baseline for my spreadsheet. It would be great if we has a spreadsheet of members planes with this sort of data for everyone to access :-) Thanks in advance, Rowan Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
