    Department of Defense Flying Car?

    I may be wrong, but what I gathered was that they were going for more like a "Fifth Element" type setup. Something that didn't need special training to operate.

    Department of Defense Flying Car?

    I just saw this article about the DOD making a flying car. It is said to be used in hostile terrain and in in places where mines are high risk. Can't wait to save up $55 million so I can get one. http://www.digitaltrends.com/lifestyle/darpa-looks-to-make-a-flying-car/

    Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University

    Grasshopper - maybe elaborate a little on that? What should I do with my time? Not being sarcastic but are you saying join school clubs and do a lot of extra-curricular activities? Or come up with a new idea from what I learn that could lead to something great? Thanks, Tim

    Virgin Galactic. They are really doing big things. They just launched their ship on it's maiden voyage a few days ago. I actually had them in mind for a job when I graduate.

    Tube amplifier

    I do a lot with professional audio. Fender makes a small tube amp that has a very clean tone. Pignose also has a small tube amp. They are belt style for street corner playing and they are pretty cheap. Look at Guitar Center's website. Search for tube amp and sort by price lowest to highest. Or...

    Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University

    I would love to work for NASA. Wouldn't we all. I really want to design and build spacecraft. I'm still really trying to decide what part of the engineering I want to do. My top choices are propulsion and design. I feel like it won't be long before deep space travel is necessary. If NASA doesn't...

    I have a 1980 model and it has oil injection. It was used and may have been modified. I'm not sure about that, but I know it can be done on a 1980 model, as Dennis said though, it may have to be modified. Tim
