    I'd fly with you anytime, Vance. I'd pay for the flight too. You're my kind of nut about safety.

    The poor front-end suspension geometry alone will kill you. Kiwi road regs might be a joke.

  • Good topic, and info. Very valid questions and answers. Someone around here has to know, I'm sure of that.

    Maybe low-cost private aviation will be the fatallity then.

    We don't really need batteries. Fuel cells are very scalable, below 10kw right now. Need a really good fresh water supply? Fuel cells can be run in both directions. Is it really going to be all about what lobby wins in D.C.? Is it only about 'lack-of-current-information' ? What're we going to...

    Relatively inexpensive hi-output Direct Current model airplane motors from Japan can do the work. All that was needed were the "motorized Kite designs" and the digital controls with software to guide them autonomously. There is enough continuous wind at/or above 1500 feet to run these t...

    So now I submit, if we can utilize airborne wind electrical generation to make pure H2, we can have sufficient power for transportation, communication, heat and light, for everyone. You see we've already done the developement needed to kit-make our own generators. Mikani has done it for 30kw power...

    I applaud Elon Musk, and the State of California, for their hi-risk energy shift to low-polluting, renewable energy sources. That shift practically bankrupted the state at the time, because they also had to build a whole new distribution network( grid ). And I doubt that Elon has seen the first penny...

    An interesting side light is that Ford has been supplying those specialty trucks that run in the big passenger airports for over 20 years. I've been told that they put slightly modified internal combustion engines in them, so they can use pure Hydrogen as fuel. It turns out that stellite valves and...

  • Maybe this forum would be a good place to "grow" a list the links(as in a file) various experienced pilots use to find statistics and instances of sport aviation accidents....

    Thanks to Steve_UK for the first one.

    "HHHhhhhhhhmmmmmm" wonder where they stole that design? IBM, CRAY, NCR? BTW, supercomputer is a generic term. Super for what? The IBM 3090 is still the best overall business computer, because it has 256 independent I/O channels, so more users, more disk access, it isn't only about the...

    Hi, Chris:

    Here's the state of the business update having to do with fuel cells, where, in Michigan they've been under development for over 20 years:

    O.K. here we go. For all you acronym using enthusiats:
    I totally agree, except that the weight factor must also include...

    Thanks for posting that link, Boots. It was solid information, confirming what Vance spoke to the other day. He hit the nail on the head, with his definitive comments about how accidents happen due to improper trains of thought starting before one ever enters the aircraft. It happens with cars and...

  • Sorry if I "read too much into this", Vance. Yet I believe I've gotten valuable info from the forum, because I voiced my concern. I have copy-pasted all the responses received so far into a text document. Its great having this in one spot, that I can refer to quickly. I believe I did a forum...

    Yeah, sure. Do you have the metallurigcal reports on those "Copies"? Pot metal can be cast to "look" exactly like high carbon steel. Then, when it expands unevenly under heating, it seizes, and you die....

    Not sure the Red Chinese actually "reverse engineered" anything about that engine. That is to say, did they actually do a chemical analysis of the crankshaft, camshaft, valves, cylinders, heads, valve seats, valve springs, timing gears, and the assorted bolts, connecting rods, piston rings(each)...

    Guess I reassigned the term: "Reds" to the Chinese, perhaps mistakenly. I do remember when it was a term applied mostly to the Russians. My view of the Red Chinese military and political structure is that they are a bloody-minded people, not caring who they offend or kill, even of their...

  • Thanks to all three of you for bringing up this (possibly sensitive) subject. The answers covered more areas than I had thought about, and leads me to consider trailering alternatives to hangers, and brings "folding masts" into the picture for the first time. Also, you covered the range...

  • less ROC?????????????

    CD also lowered??????? Love these guessing games.............

    But I get it now. If the more experienced pilots really gave a shit about gaining and keeping new members, they'd spell out these acronyms.

    Its really all about the status of...
