    Twin Prop Gyro Info

    Yes, jeffgerritsen1956 one would want counter-rotation, especially if one were an aero and mechanical genius like Dick DeGraw. If memory serves, Dick said that he also built in independent power control of each prop; so it isn't only the blade inertia dampening the torque roll. Also, his...

    Iconel and other special materials hardware

    Hi, Wayne, I looked up Inconel doing just a basic Wikipedia search. You should probably do an extensive search on: steels and their alloys, of which Inconel makes up a family of 20 or so. The basic metalurgy was first developed in 1940 during WW II. They're generally comprised of Austentitic...

    Wisconsin - Sport Copter Vortex - Fatal - N634SC

    I have a question. I hope its not inappropriate here. It is for my education specifically about the 582 Vortex: is that a gas-oil mixed 2-stroke engine on that aircraft?

    Here is a test for carburetor wizards.

    Good grief, most makers of carburetors make them with several sizes of venturis, based on the engine displacement involved. Couldn't this guy at least provide a picture with an attached engine, or at least more info on what it was fitted to? What kind of machine was it attached to, heh heh...

    TEST: Does this new post appear on main page?

    Mark, there is an expression used for people who keep doing the same thing, yet expect a different response. We've heard your complaint, ad nauseum, and wonder why you continue to use the same browser. Continued repetition of your complaint isn't productive. Its just whining. You asked for...

    TEST: Does this new post appear on main page?

    Also, Mark, certificates are the lowest order of authentication there is. They are the same as having no authentication at all. Modern internet communications models(like the OSI standard) include 5 or 6 isolated layers of programming. Certificates are at the top layer. Todays good...

    TEST: Does this new post appear on main page?

    After hearing some distressing info about Google practices and processes 2 years ago, I haven't used Chrome since. Been using Opera for over a year now, and have found it solid. Yes, security is always an issue in the internet world, but really, browsers are the 2nd most hacked pieces of...

    Ignition damping box

    I am assuming that the older cars' capacitors provided the same dampening as the boxes on the Rotax engines. Today's cars incorporate solid-state circuitry, with no moving parts, that provide the same service. Don't know what Rotax does.
