Pretty cool, but out of my budget. It's all I can do to scrape up enough to fly a 150 and 172 lol.
A few ideas for composites here.
This technique can be used for one offs using a male plug.
Are your pilot skillz this good, or do you just follow the rules, fly in a straight line, talk a bunch of gibberish on the radio, and look at your instruments?
Pilot skills? There’s a world of difference between driving a self-stabilizing drone and flying a real plane with your butt on the line. I fly both, but mostly the real stuff. I only fly drones when called upon by the local Sheriff.
That's cool and everything but, just like, way back when, the R/C airplane craze became popular, I wasn't interested. I guess it's kinda because, like hang gliding never interested me because I was already a PP. Anything less than flying an aircraft, seening what you see, feeling all the bumps and wind gust, hearing the different sounds of the engine and wind, anything less just didn't intrest me. Soring for instants, not a fan, I don't want to have to depend on air currents to stay aloft, and if I want to buzz my friends house at the river, well, I simply head that way. I'm not knocking the drone thing, i'm just saying that for me, it has no appeal. Yet! And yes, that was a great display of skill !
I thought it was an advertisement and I was waiting for the actual video.
Zero comparison to actual aviating.
I guess if you do not understand it that is probably a good way to describe it.......People asked my why do I fly....and I say "because it is so beautiful"
Since this topic comes up occasionally here on HBA.com...
Thunderbirds are go !
Here is my version of the metric to inch conversion. I have a sheet printed out and propped up against my computer while I work on converting a set of metric plans to AN hardware. Use it with a metric rule and you will be close enough for anything we can build with hand tools.
No eye piece needed!
Unfortunately I can't find the original Excel sheet that I built to pull this sorted list from right now.
And I'm too overfed and lazy from yesterdays turkey feed to spend the 3 minutes it would take to regenerate it.
I fly weaponized drones against the local sheriff. See you on the battlefield.
=not BIG, but many,many...!
My solution is a tape measure I have that created a lot of errors when I tried to build some shelves with it. I would measure and then do the math (subtraction) to figure out what I should have left. Everything came out crooked and uneven until I figured out that the tape measure had ten inches to the foot and ten divisions to the inch.
I have no idea where I got that tape measure, but is sure caused some building issues. Measure twice and cut once was definitely not working that day.
Have to admit I'd never heard of these. Now I need to order a couple.
The tape is ten divisions of a foot, or a tenth of a foot (not inches). Used by land surveyors, called a "chain". Usually a 100 feet or 200 feet long steel tape.
So a distance might be say 56.45 feet or whatever, for example.
There are those who can, and those who can not, fold a chain.
It's kind of like folding a bandsaw blade.
I have a 200 foot chain on a reel now.
Well lets see, I went flying this morning in a 172, 5 take off and landings. I think I've got it now, move the yoke forward, we go faster, move the yoke back, we slow down. Give it more throttle, we go higher, less throttle, we loose altitude. Ok, I think I got this, I'm ready for sign off !
All bark, no flight.
They just put our latest project update on line.
