    Crashes in the News - Thread

    Carmarthen in Wales has a large flood plain directly adjacent to the town. Cattle graze it in summer. It reliably floods every single winter. Yet, property developers apply to build on it every year.

    What might cause low EGT?

    For the egt to be that far out, you'd have noticed the engine not running smoothly. Sensor is likely shorted close to exhaust. Try swapping them and see if the bad cylinder moves.

    Not-so-solid massive core wings: Lightening the core foam

    Hmmm. The problem with glider training is I'd need to join a club first. That's over $1000.

    Where to Put the Static Port?

    There will be neutral spots. The fun is finding one that doesn't move with AOA and/or speed. That is likely why velocity species 3 holes each side. They average out 3 moving points to get a better one than can be found for a single spot.

    Vaporware

    As an alien, there are additional legal hoops to jump through before I can take a PPL lesson. I lack enough pieces of paper from the US government for them. I don't even currently have a US driving license. But that is nothing to do with the TSA.

    Crashes in the News - Thread

    The U.S. Attorney noted in the press release that Hernandez was taken into custody during National Drone Safety Awareness Week. Only a year? I expect that will be increased along with the number of eejits doing stuff like this. It's not legal to fly a drone inside my city without jumping...
