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

DSC_0006.JPG Here is a picture of my very first water detector prototype that I made 59 years ago. So simple and can be made as sophisticated as desired. And most plane owners do not know how much more safely they can make their plane by making and installing one on their plane. The FAA is big on t...

OPINIONS - Just keep in mind that all things that I may say are just my opinions and shall not be construed as tips or advice. Remember...I don't know nothing for sure. But I have fun doing. And if one doesn't do, they will know less.

Re: SOME THOUGHTS ON ACCURACY & OTHERS

This looks like less than 20 feet to me...but one can get the idea that the more power one is using, the slower they can land. https://www.wideopenspaces.com/alaskan- ... way-video/

Re: SOME THOUGHTS ON ACCURACY & OTHERS

I saw one where the landing was just over 10 feet https://www.mostwatchedtoday.com/alaska-bush-pilots-short-takeoff-and-landing-competition/ I don’t know but I would guess that it may be lowered to 8 feet with a couple hundred more horse power – maybe take more. It looks like the Take-Off distance f...

Re: SOME THOUGHTS ON ACCURACY & OTHERS

A very strange thing happens among plane owners. They will buy planes, they will buy airplane kits, based on fuel consumption and fuel efficiencies, usually in GPH, Gallons Per Hour, without realizing that in most cases where someone just does the typical occasional flying, the fuel costs are the le...

Re: RIFLE BORE PHOTO GUIDE

Boy oh boy - some of thse barrels sure look neglected and abused...but in some cases, maybe most, they can be smoothed up...just the outer most surfaces and rifling edges. The rifling edges don't have to be sharp - the bullet won't care, so long as the bullet will engage. The fact that rifling edges...

Well 72 usmc, let me throw my 2 cent in to this. I say the biggest mistake that most people make is agreeing with your first posting...Sun Dec. 30 7:08 pm, in the 4th paragraph down, “The real accuracy test...” As far as I am concerned this does not have one iota to do with the potential accuracy of...

Re: SOME THOUGHTS ON ACCURACY & OTHERS

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ERCO_Ercoupe This was a plane with only two controls, the yoke and throttle, no rudder peddles. Sears and Roebuck sold them. I saw in the article about it being landed with the pilot holding his hands in the air. I am wondering just when he took his hands off...and put ...

http://www.inforevz.us/ProFlightSim/ I have three of these but they are all old – 20 to 30 years. I have the Joy Sticks and Foot Peddles. This particular one is not a real training program, but they are available as well. I have seen them for up to 200 $ and more of course. They are a lot cheaper th...

This is the kind of plane that I use to have. Aeronca Champ 7-AC, fully aerobatic. https://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=aeronca+champ+7-ac+acrobatic+video&qpvt=aeronca+champ+7-ac+acrobatic+video&view=detail&mid=A9E60B9B17AC8D7B9BE7A9E60B9B17AC8D7B9BE7&rvsmid=B78FD65AB91C776EEC09B78FD65AB91C776EEC09&...

Nothing but fun....If one really wants to have some fun, really, really have some fun....just learn to fly in one of these. https://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=flying+the+pt-17&qpvt=flying+the+PT-17&FORM=VDRE Actually most do not realize that one can learn to fly in 10 or 15 minutes.

Re: SOME THOUGHTS ON ACCURACY & OTHERS

Everyone has to believe in something....like this barrel life thing. Some will believe that a barrel is only good for maybe 150 rounds, therefore don’t use any break-in rounds to subtract from this. And then some may read about this 14,000 round test. There is a lot of difference between these and I...

Re: SOME THOUGHTS ON ACCURACY & OTHERS

Road kill rules here in Colorado – I did this only once, 20 years ago. Then there was a five dollar fee. I did it just for the big set of antlers to make knife handles. Just like this article says, the meat can be a mess. A large part of the highway between here and Durango is on one side of a river...
