    My thinking also, it HAS to help. Can't hurt anyway....and other than any "speed increase" (I spend a lot of my time in the 70's, because I like it there) and drag reduction will help climb,...

    I found some neutral colored foam weather stripping that perfectly seals the gap between my horizontal stab and my elevator on the RANS, and gained 3 MPH top speed and knocked off 2 MPH off the...

    I would have made it except for a very late in the day Friday crane job, and a very early Monday job, looked like great weather. I am buying another 30 acres below my current 40 acres to prolong my...

    He will be getting billed for "loss of power production" from the agency who owns the lines, on top of everything else. I know this from my crane business. Or so I've heard... Lucky SOB all in all.

    Yes indeed, what is called a "wind event" I believe, not just the usual wind. Says the guy with a wind electric turbine that self furls to protect itself in over 28 mph winds, which its been doing...

    Regen for braking sure is nice, reminds me of the Jakebrake in my crane, original brakes at 99K miles, in mountain country. The few tenths of a mile in free range every time I hit a red light is...

    Hybrid plugin makes more sense, like my plug in Prius, love that car. 74 mpg last tank, don't care if it's girly! I have a 1 ton flatbed and a crane truck to keep me manly.

    The best thing I can can say about the RANS S-7's I've flown for the last 20+ years: they fly a lot like my old T-Craft, high praise indeed. All my 118 hrs was 4500' ASL based, but the one time I had...

    My BC-12D ended up in Bozeman, I ferried it up there about 13 years ago. Hickory brown and Daytona white, a fine example of the line.
