    Coriolis...is it a force, or an effect?

    In the discussion of forces, real and imaginary, in the thread On the flapping and lead-lag blade oscillations (in German) Coriolis is mentioned. Is Coriolis a real force, or is it an effect that depends on frame of reference. I have always understood it to be an effect, but the more I think I...

    Possible workaround for the New Topics button

    Currently, the New Topics button is not working correctly. The search criteria is not restrictive enough, but I may have a temporary solution. This should return a list of threads with the latest unread posts, just like the previous version of the Forum. *** Open the Forum in a second window...

    Phoenix Rotorcraft at Mentone?

    Did Phoenix Rotorcraft make it to Mentone? Didn't they get a tractor trailer to haul their gear and make the fly-ins? I tried to pull up their website to see if any progress had been made on the UFO, or any other model, but the site won't come up.

    Thank You Greg Gremminger

    Greg Gremminger posted this statement in the "Magazine" thread and I thought it was getting lost in all the furor, so I thought I would repost it here. This is good news and I just wanted to recognize him for his efforts. Thank You Greg!

    Bensen Days 2010

    I just wanted to post a quick note to say thanks to Sunstate for putting on such a great event. I hadn't been to Bensen days since 2007 and didn't realize how much I missed it until I got there last Monday. It was good to see old friends, meet new friends, and put faces to Forum names. As...

    Deleted threads.

    Some of you may have noticed some of the more controversial threads have been deleted. They were getting out of hand with the politics, religion, and name calling. Todd has already posted that he would rather not see it on the Forum. But it tends to creep into a lot of threads and it gets ugly...

All had the same email domain, so they were easy to find. I also reset the registration to be approved by an Admin, specifically me. There's...

    One man's trash...

    ...is another man's treasure. I found this at the dump today while dropping off some garbage. It uses a 9 X 3.50-4 tire and still holds air. Tire looks good too. The sprocket is worn but not a big deal for a gyro. :) Doesn't someone have one of these for a nosewheel on their gyro? Anyway...
