Does anyone have, or can they point me ti information and pictures of the Fiat CS15 aircraft and its AS8 V16 engine?
Skybolt said:And the first is the CS-38, a project of a fighter with the A-38 drawn by Manlio Stavelli, the chief designr of CMASA, and designer of the CS-15 record airplane.
The relationship ot the A-38 with the AS.8 is debatable. The design was very different, expecially in the definitive inverted V configuration. And, more importantly, the design of the A.38 was started before (in 1938) that the AS.8.

Interesting layout of the landing gear. Looks, as if the halves folded downwards before
retracting backwards ?
Jemiba said:An alternative could be to rotate the axle parallel to the fuselage and retract it in that attitude.
Would decrease mechanicla complexity, but increase the needed volume in the fuselage, I think.

Oops. I see. I'm not a frequent flyer in this site... until now.
Anyway, for all the people interested, this is the facebook page devoted to my works, CS15 included:
Hope I'll be ok this time.

of Manlio Stiavelli ).
