    M02J... forgive me if this has been posted before.

    BTW... This thread has become very slow to load. Is that just me, or is anyone else getting the same result?

    Didn't find a good recent thread to post this in, so I'm doing it here. This YouTube link is a good one for scaring any pilot into a healthy respect for flutter.

    Here is a little jewel. A -really- small double row radial model engine.



    It seems to work with compressed air only as this supercharged naval 8 in line.

    Several reasons I can think of...

    1. To minimize movement and shaking/jarring of the pilot because they are unsure of the extent of his injuries.
    2. To avoid the risk of collapsing the nose cone around the pilot's legs.
    3. The all-glass ships can be extremely heavy and trying to manhandle the long tail and wings as you flip it can be almost impossible.

    This video is a good example of why you should carry a canopy axe with you... what if this had been in the middle of nowhere with no rescue crews to help extract you?
