Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

Re: SOME THOUGHTS ON ACCURACY & OTHERS

RAMBLING # 5---I might have some more ink left in the computer and some may not be aware of the things that happened in the 737 Max crashes. I learned to fly when I was 19 and bought a plane in 58 and as I have said been involved in aircraft avionics for 45 years. When they went to 20 hours minimum ...

RAMBLING # 4 ---LYING FBI--- They must lie just because they can. I have had a secret clearance most of the time since I was 18 until I retired in 1995 – had the FBI lie detector tests for clearances beyond. A while back I asked them for a copy of my FBI record because of the ‘Freedom of information...

RAMBLING #3--CURRENT NEWS -- Have you seen on the current news about the picture of a Black Hole 100 million light years away which were here-to-for just theoretical.

RAMBLE Hi – Well yes, I thought maybe I should take a break – there seemed to be not too much interest in what I have been rambling about. But I am appreciable for the kind words. And then just a month and a half ago I made a stupid mistake and slipped and fell and broke my back. All broken backs ar...

Re: SOME THOUGHTS ON ACCURACY & OTHERS

Just some more of the 'Others'. I like to keep in mind that no matter how much one may think that they know about something, it is so very little. As in, “No one knows but a small almost insignificant amount about anything.” When one may think that they are a master of something, they are only fooli...

Re: SOME THOUGHTS ON ACCURACY & OTHERS

Okay, can you see what I am talking about in short-field landings and using Full-Power. In FAA pilot training they cover what is called ‘Slow-Flight’. This is as close to emergency short-field landings as they will get. But this is done at altitude, a safe enough altitude to recover from a spin. Thi...

Holy Mackerel --- I just saw where these International Scouts have an asking price in the 30K + range with one of an asking price of 139K. I suddenly have one for sale. I wonder just how many coats of wax is required to ask that 139K.

Water injection - At first glace one may wonder just how water can be injected into a jet engine and increase it’s trust. It was just a cheap way to increase thrust when needed most as in take-offs and a low thrust engine could suffice for normal cruise. https://mdao.grc.nasa.gov/publications/SAE_H2...

Lyman Bore Scope - Okay – I can see a need and use for one of these at a gun show. Just someone to set up one with a ‘Look at a bore before you buy’ with a price to be appropriate.

I don’t know just how they are making it conductive and still plastic coated but they have had versions of these since I don’t know when. I remember as a kid my dad always having these. A first line water filter for refueling one’s plane should be to use one of these, but I have never seen one bothe...
