Ack. Thinking about climbing into a Cessna again next month as well. Just a taste.
Just heard on the news that a Curtiss Helldiver has been found off the coast of Florida.
Anyone able to add some info?
Anyone in the game know any inside details about the latest from Honda?
Has anybody posted the Stratolaunch system yet?
Wow, thats cool! My Grandma built those in WWII. She was a welder and did a lot of welding on the aluminum fuel tanks and lots of other bits from the sound of it.
Some very good news, indeed.......................
I was bored this morning, and was poking around RCUniverse.com, when I came across this:
Great Planes/Harold Wagner Piper J-3 twin Cub (RTF)
I was like
So, I fired up my Google Fu, and ran across this:
A tad more at the bottom of the page, along with some other aviation oddities...
There's been some interesting stuff attempted in the evolution of avation, to say the least...
Wow! I do learn something new every day...The twin Tri-Pacer is something else too!
Somebody requested a snowy, full moon night flying video. My sack isn't big enough to shoot that, but I did get a new camera for Christmas and put this together. There's snow at least... This is my first attempt and I have quite a bit of jelly effect in it, but thought I would post it anyway.

Well, there you have it... video evidence, that you officially suck....
What are you flying?
Whadga, stick the camera on the wing?
The jelly effect is caused by vibration, one way to get rid of it would be to decrease the iris and extend the exposure (other than just isolating it from vibration).
Nice airport, weird rwy config.
Van's RV-8a that I finished 12/08.
This was a 5 minute mounting job. I attached the helmet mount to the left wingtip such that it was angled down about 10°. I definitely need to firm this up, but wanted to play with the new toy and I new this would work since I'm not he first RV guy to do it.
One of my favorite planes.
Very nice! Have any pics, or build thread on it anywhere on the interwebs?
We're proud owners of an RV-8,
hey, gotta start somewhere, right?
Any photos of your 8?
