Do I take it that you are not going to provide us with a list of your professional aircraft engineering qualifications and a few engineering analyses of stability, control, strength, performance, etc. of your Air Command deathtraps to support your statements?
I was sure that you welcome the opportunity to demolish with unimpeachable science-based arguments and data the published, peer-reviewed conclusions regarding your deathtraps made by all those stupid graduate aerospace engineering students and Ph.D.s at Glasgow University.
You won't get any of that asking mean, nice or otherwise.
I was not there at the time (Classic Commander HTLs were designed) but since he won't talk engineering, physics or science here (or on any of the Mini 500 threads that give him alot more $hT then we do) we can assume it was a looks upgrade to the Bensen with no slide ruler involved what so ever.
Sort of like a hot-rod kit for a 60's car. Just bolt on a bigger engine, prop, some looks improvement, scooch things around so they fit and "TA DA" salesmen 'engineered' new gyro design, "Built to Sell!"
If there was some engineering involved we would have heard it boasted about long long ago.
One thing positive though is that Air Command did sell a horizontal stab and he sold it to people that have really done a great job of cleaning up the Air Command safety record and even help clean up the old flawed designs sold under the previous engineer.
I find great stress in his attitude and great loss in that he even now could be such a great positive force for the gyroplane community but everything has been said or ignored enough that I don't think anything more will come of this thread except a BEWARE for sharp nebees.
Thom has the best post in the thread. Lets go fly. lane:
Hey ACE, I don't see any credentials in your BIO.
Do you have any...ACE?!
Do you suspect he has been selling aircraft and calling himself an aerospace engineer?
