    First Hand account of Control Stick fail w/Bailout

    I ran across this and thought of all my old buddies. A VERY interesting read. Happened a couple weeks ago. Enjoy. Gary Acro sport pilot bails out - The Biplane Forum

    Microlift Glider

    Very interesting thread. Great idea Gordo to fill the gap between HG and XC gliders. I was somewhat surprised how quickly you seemed turn turn from the good Dr. Jeckyll (sp?) to the fire breathing Mr. Hyde at the first sign of disagreement with your postulations. Maybe you should lay off that...

    Synergy Aircraft

    So if the Kickstarter funding goal is not met by June 4th, none of the funds go to Synergy? Is it an all or nothing proposition?

    The Razorback construction thread

    Aircraft manufacturers have not done so. I wonder why. None more so than plane builders. Highspeed, I got something entirely different out of AirCar's post. To me, he's telling Duncan that, A) Duncan's product is more a variation on a theme rather than TRUE innovation. He then cautions Duncan...

    MEDIATOR INTERJECTION HERE: Hi John, long time no talkie. Autoreply is not over reacting here. Your use of the "feel threatened" phrase is incendiary and belittling. So (just my $0.02), you asked for it. (Not the $0.02, the flame from AR). Gary

    Man, I'm loving this....

    Steve, +1 on the Czech women:ban: (and the Pilsen Urquel ain't bad). It is purposely left open for costs/weight savings, the "freedom" (opposite of claustrophobic) feeling, and you can order the fuselage steel in 20 colors. Also, they have an optional winter cabin enclosure. It reminds me of...

    Man, I'm loving this....

    I'll tell you, these Czechs know what they're doing. (In the interests of full disclosure I am of Czech heritage but don't know what I'm doing).

    Anyone seen or heard from Tom Parker recently?

    Tony, The tornado I was speaking of, the one that whisked his safe into the netherworld, occurred in Alabama about 6 months ago. Maybe he's a tornado magnet? I'll bet there weren't I-Pads and I-Phones when you would have had to go to the library to communicate digitally. Gary

    Anyone seen or heard from Tom Parker recently?

    He was the only member to "friend" me:dis:. You know, it wouldn't have come to this if that killer tornado had not ripped his safe off the floor of his shop, and away, never to be found. He told me there was over $30K in that safe. I wonder....

    The Razorback construction thread

    Harsh, SANE, bitter, fatherly advice, not given lightly I'm certain. George, you were (would have been) a great, straight shooting dad I'll bet. They hated you when they were young, could not possibly love you more now they've grown up. My hat's off to you. Gary

    So, what's the deal with a vacuum reservoir? And, about that pump oil.

    Thanks Orion. Continuous duty pumps. What a concept! And how cool not to have to worry about overworking the machine. There's no truer maxim than, "You get what you pay for". I'm hoping to score a dry pump in the near future and I'll have a tank on it as well. Thanks for the info. Gary

    So, what's the deal with a vacuum reservoir? And, about that pump oil.

    OK Billski, The light is beginning to shine. The pressure switch, in line, senses over-pressure and shuts down pump, OR, senses you need more suck and starts the pump. Did you have any trouble adapting the switch to motor contacts. I'm assuming the switch draws power from the host motor, yes? I...

    So, what's the deal with a vacuum reservoir? And, about that pump oil.

    Billski, Thanks to your generous offer, I'm back with more questions. Thanks to the West Systems (Gorgeon Bros.) website I am all over the PVC stuff. I am hazy on two items. Your reservoir, being an old propane bottle, would have only one outlet. Did you drill and tap to make an in and out? I...

    So, what's the deal with a vacuum reservoir? And, about that pump oil.

    Billski mentioned that he had a vacuum cannister of some sort in line in his bagging setup. Anything that stabilizes or insures a more successful outcome in a vacuum layup is something I am very interested in. Billski, if you're out there, or anyone who uses this reservoir, please explain: 1) I...
