    What type of flying machines is this ?

    That's great, there are also lots of people in remote US and Canada that would pay as well.... unfortunately there are not enough of them to financially support Starlink. As for Africa and Central Asia, those people live off about $50-100/mnth (or less) ... how are they going to afford $50/mnth...

    What type of flying machines is this ?

    Starlink: another Muskovian delusion destined for failure. The launch cost alone to put 10's of thousands of satellites alone in orbit makes it economically unfeasible. The whole idea is to bring internet to anywhere on the planet, but the only places on the planet that can afford and pay the...

    Air Cam / CH-750 love child ....

    Of course the Russians have already made one.... wish I could read what the sign says. Looks cool. Thick STOL wing, side by side seating, close mounted twins so no VMC, and a trailing link front nose gear.... stole all my ideas...

    Air Cam / CH-750 love child ....

    This is what I was mainly worried about. I figured there was a reason both the Air Cam and Breezy had the pilot sitting 4+' out in front of the wing... but at the same time there are plenty of amphib pushers with side by side seating too. Icon, SeaRey, et al.... how do they make it work ? I'll...

    Air Cam / CH-750 love child ....

    I would be all over the DoubleEnder for this want, but unfortunately it seems to have stalled at the prototype stage.

    Air Cam / CH-750 love child ....

    The older I get the less inclined I am to flying around at 50-100' over trees and boulders on 1 engine.... The breezy with a cabin is close to what I'm dreaming of, but not the STOL wing I want. Dreaming of something that can haul 2 full sized guys, sitting side by side, plus 100-200 lbs of...

    Air Cam / CH-750 love child ....

    Thats just it, a set of wings and tail sub-kits could be ordered easy and relatively cheap from Zenith. Why go through all the headaches of custom fabing ribs and spars when Zenith has already done it. With simple pop-rivet construction and matched drilled holes to boot. If the whole thing...

    Air Cam / CH-750 love child ....

    Dreaming of a plane I think I might be able to someday pursue depending on yalls feedback. 1. Love the Air Cam - perfect slow flight twin ... but not thrilled with the flying canoe cockpit 2. Love the CH 750- simple, all metal, ugly but dang if it doesnt just flat out work. The Dream. Take the...

    The big video topic

    I've been lucky enough to ride in one of TonyP.'s Howard 500's. Very cool experience. He's got the last 2 flying examples and flies them all over the world. www.tpaero.com for some great vids

    Three Surface vs Canard (Two Surface) Discussion

    I remember reading the Avanti "front wing" was purposely given negative dihederal to keep it's wake from affecting the laminar flow of the main wing Between the front wing and lifting body shape of the fuselage they were able to reduce the main wing by 20% The tail is also reported to produce...

    Yamaha with Sky Trax PSRU

    Edge Performance is busy developing a kit up to 300hp from a 200lbs engine.... https://www.facebook.com/pg/EdgePerformanceEPeX/posts/ Dyno proving now. Test flying with famed Steve "no power take off" Harvey in his Highlander for about a year now. Very promising

    Three Surface vs Canard (Two Surface) Discussion

    Not to mention the rocket powered seat ready to shoot you out of the plane it comes equipped with too.... That's interesting info on the 3 lifting surface design. That has always been my dream experimental plane to design/build ....2 seat, 3 lifting surface, pusher twin with a pair of Rotax...

    Three Surface vs Canard (Two Surface) Discussion

    I'm pretty sure the Avanti has some kind of syncronized flap system on both the main wing and it's front lifting surface.

    Aircraft *designs* available for sale?

    I would love to see someone bring back Martin Hollman's Super Stallion. I wonder what his wife does want for the prototype, plans and molds ? https://www.aircraftdesigns.com/design/stallion/

    Raptor Composite Aircraft

    On the slotted elevator topic and how the more knowledgeable have commented it might work with main wing flaps if done right .... This was Peter's original plan to add flaps to main wing later as the design progressed. Then he figured out his track system wouldnt work.

    Raptor Composite Aircraft

    There have been mountains of clinical human psychology experiments on this. Professional training coaches love to give speeches on the conscious competence scale. Just had to sit through one 2 weeks ago. 1. You are unconsciously incompetent - You dont know what you dont know - Peter's current...

    Well at least the ailerons aren't flopping around like a wet noodle now that he has at least attempted to balance them.

    And now you understand why Cirrus sells a new 4 seat single engine fixed gear unpressurized airplane for $875,000 And why Peter's initial cost predictions were/are complete utter nonsense
