Yes my history here is short (41 posts) compared to over 2000 of yours, or Ross, but does that imply that you are right or more entitled to discuss issues then me?Ironically it was very fortunate that others did not think like the Wrights, and that the Wrights blocked others from following their methodology turned out to be a good thing forcing individuals to discover far superior solutions. Don't try using history as a weapon unless it's properly loaded.
I have "pushed the boundaries" many a time and my aviation based patents/applications are all about "new possibilities". I spend time and money researching stuff like the possibilities of diesels and in fact, a product of mine being currently developed is advantageous in it's market place through it being diesel powered (modern 2.0 turbo common rail), so overtones of me having anti-diesel bias or ignorance in anyway is nonsense, but it's just not a fit for HBA typical light aircraft. It always comes back to the math and 2+2 needs to equal 4.
Cheapracer, I am glad that you have pushed boundaries, which is a natural thing for someone who is in product development, hence my surprise at your constant reluctance to discuss new possibilities! In fact I can attest to the fact that you have actually raised some questions on this forum that revolve around new ideas , but you insist on denying facts, even in the face of evidence of the links I posted that fit precisely in the specs you say are correct to discuss on HBA! So I will post them again ! And let others judge for themselves ;
Gaz'aile 2 : caractéristiques et performances
You have an unfortunate short history here of not liking other people actually having experience in matters overriding your veritable delusions, but anyway, no problem as I don't actually answer for you, there's many others reading here as well and I'm sure they enjoying reading and learning, especially from Ross's posts which are book worthy.
To be clear, this is not a pissing contest on who is right or wrong, all on here I'm sure, have knowledge to share, or are open to learn and sharing depending on their background and capabilities! There might be some initial head butting on some issues, but civilised men , will find ways to communicate in a civil way( and in this case technical a way) and exchange views and ideas in a respectful manner, and on this thread Ross and I have been communicating better , and while I don't question his competence and knowledge , some of his opinions are based on engines he is familiar with, but there are others that he is not.
So its frustrating to be criticised for daring to raise questions , and have them dismissed even in the face of proven evidence, something my friend that is not pleasant or even rational!
Now on a lighter note.........can you elaborate more on the mentioned product you developed involving a 2,0 CR Diesel ? Just curious? unless you cant divulge more info, or consider Im not worthy......
