    Down-Home Vibrometer

    I was thinking of doing something very similar to detect flutter. embed one in a control surface, using an arduino with a lcd display, calculate and show the frequency of the vibration. This Arduino can send a signal to my Annunciator Arduino, which plays a warning mp3 on the intercom.

    Air Adventurer 333

    Hollman was the engineer. The mods are pretty minor. Don't use the wing tanks and the flutter problem goes away at the speeds this plane flys. There were updates to the manual for balancing control surfaces. The hardest mod is replacing the bowden cables for control surface movement with...
