    Pilot with no arms

    I remember seeing her at Oshkosh this year. She drew a pretty large crowd at Aeroshell Square when they where talking about her achievements and interviewing her.

    homebuilt information??

    The number of seats, cruise speed, price. After those three, then what you already listed as well as fuel burn at a certian cruise speed, as well as rough field capabilities.

    Need to find lightweight hydraulic cylinders for retracts

    I think www.infinityaerospace.com does custom hydraulic parts. Maybe some of their existing stuff would work. Maybe the "low riders" use equipment that might work?

    Direct Drive

    Nice biplane. Are you going to completely take your current ultralight apart, or just remove the engine and prop?

    Boeing 787 - Metal Thinking in Composites

    www.compositesworld.com featured a buisness airplane built the same way. At the time I thought it was the dumbest idea ever, but I guess Orion makes some good points. I think there are some pictures of the barrel sections of the new Boeing birds on their website some where. If you do not...

    RV 4 Lite

    I think configuring the engine to have some kind of speed limiter would be better than adding drag. What about setting it up for running LOP (better fuel economy and a bit less power) with electronic spark advance with a built in rev limiter that would activate at higher air speeds? That would...

    How do I learn more about 2 strokes?

    I know there are books and videos about rebuilding rotax motors, as well as many other books and videos about other two strokes. My favorite reference for two strokes is the www.snowest.com forums.

    Trying to find a one off airplane again

    I think it was a two place. I am not sure about large or not. If I recall there was a web site that had a list of many airplanes and the web link was on that list. I have checked every website with lists that I could find, but I have not found it yet.

    Trying to find a one off airplane again

    It wasn't that. It was conventional not a canard. If I recall it looked almost like a high end sail plane as far as build quality and over all shape went, but maybe my memory is getting fuzzy. It was not a kit, and the website had some information on it that I think may be useful. The guy...

    Trying to find a one off airplane again

    I remember reading a website that had a very good history of two homebuilt one off airplanes, and some other good information. The first airplane was a pusher with a tail under the prop configuration. The second was a twin boom pusher that I believe was built by the same guy. Those two airplanes...

    What are your thoughts on Nidacore?

    Orion: Why does the price go up so much for S-glass or graphite? Their price increases seem to be out of line with the base material price difference.

    Inverted landing gear question

    Did someone hack your account or post at your computer when you left for a minute? :D If it really is you, maybe you could mount a monowheel to your roll bar?
