    Way outside the box

    Health Wealth & Happiness

    Hopefully this will be a thread where stuff that works for one might also work for others. CR recently commented how important vitamin C was for the immune system and I wish to expound on that fact by relaying some history of mine from the mid 70"s. I met a friend of a friend who told me how...

    Float springs a leak...

    I was watching the live feed from Lake Hood seaplane base a couple of days ago for about an hour where the camera was zoomed in on a docked 170/180 listing about 45*. I don't know how they saved it but today it was like nothing happened and was sitting proud by it's own little dock. I would...

    contemplating a joined tandem wing

    Lately I've been drawn to variations of this particular theme mainly due to pilot visibility during take off and landing. I thought I'd invite some input before committing to RC. The lower wing would have flaperons, and the upper would be elevons. A full scale amphibian would probably...

    Folding or Feathering Helicopter/Tilt-Rotor Blades

    Moderator Note, from Topaz: I've moved this material to its own thread, as it's drifting well off-topic from the subject of "Folding or Feathering Propellers" from whence it came. ------------------------ I like this idea even better. Might be nice to have a folding blade on a tilt rotor to...
