    Electric Demoichelle....



    nothing quite as refreshing as exploding battery packs blown into your face :)

    I predict one day the whole fuselage boom tube is going to be your battery...

    Some interesting stuff here. Could suit backlash free controls systems and hinges to help prevent flutter.

    This is how I want my landing gear... seems like if you had to put down in a field of whatever, it'd just kind of slice through it and slide to a halt, as long as whatever was not too tall...

    Watching a lot of Apollo Guidance Computer Videos; came across this from a IBM 9020 used by FAA as ATC computer:

    That brings back memories. I purchased the last available new core memory module for a Univac machine circa 1972. Needed it to keep the powerplant monitoring machine capable of running (in background) backwater curves for what became Lake Oconee / Wallace Dam. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lake_Oconee

    It was a replacement for a module that had become contaminated with coal dust due to the ignorance of an incompetent manager. IIRC, and some of you probably know more about this than I do, so please correct or add to this, it contained 8k of octal words, each with two parity bits. Cost was $27,000, which, adjusted for inflation, would be about $164,000 today.

    I'm always on the lookout for a bargain basement elusive cheap camera with super good gimbal / image stabilization only found on crazy $$$ high end action cameras... to record super vibration prone in flight videos with someday...

    And then I came across this...

    Listen for Kate, a voice readout of telemetry GPS altitude data sent from rocket. I need this on my airplane reporting stats back to my peeps at the airport when I make a circuit high up out of sight.

    I posted that on April Fools Day, but if it worked, and I could minimize the chicken poop collateral damage to the airport and back, I'd totally use a pet chicken outboard on my plane... maybe a place where the strut meets under the wing in a little cage/harness?

    Not a whole lot of control over what the chicken switches up and decides to look at, but that may be part of the fun. Rear action chicken cam facing backwards at the tail might be a really excellent place and keep the wind out of the chicken's eyes.... and I think my plane has spots for two rear facing chickens behind the seat and to the sides of the gas tank. Rearward shots are truly mesmerizing and an onboard chicken controlling and stabilizing them would be effing awesome..... as long as a chicken didn't escape their harness and jump into the prop and I have a chicken incident.
