Putting a prop in front of a turbine just seems wrong.

Re: Aermacchi 346 Winter project assembly

Trying to post a vid of the airbrake.

https://youtu.be/umKLMYaylZk

Some pics of how I installed the actuonix L12 Actuator. I used 1/4 by 1/2 Bass wood for the mount and braced it at the back to take up some of the load when the air brake is deployed. By lowering the mount below the hatch allows the actuator to keep the door down and snug against the skin. I used a modified Hangar 9 nylon horn and clevis system to mount the door. The horn is screwed on and hysol was used below and above to secure it. Works Great!

To each, their own.
One of the great things about this hobby is the variety.
For now, I prefer to keep turbines as a pure jet.

Re: Aermacchi 346 Winter project assembly

Thanks to Hans I have a Jet Cat FOD screen installed. Turbine had to come out so I could sand the front former radius to fit the Screen.
