Default bob's new D/F with vectored thrust

from Troy Built:

Fan is a 2 stage unit for maximum intake and high veloxcity output.

With 190 degree thrustvectoring, direction control, is very simple to operate. Rack and pinion, me thinks, on vectoring with a manual azmuith control.

A 5.5 horsepower 4-stroke powerplant is very effective, also the exaust is a great hand warmer too!
Easy pull start but the optional electric start was included.

Easy to use hand contols for winter operation.
Pusher design with 7 forward and 2 reverse speeds.

C4F:

You must be in that part of the US that is going through the Al Gore "Global Warming" that is causing the next ice age. It snowed here once that I recall, around ninteen hundred and fifty. Must be a lot of fun to fly off snow ski's? Have you tried turning on the backyard sprinker at night and going ice skateing in the morning? ENJOY

We got a foot of snow to start the new year!

I used to fly off snow with skis some guys used floats they worked too.
Some years snow was so thin still could fly wheels.

One new years day fly-in is was 32 degrees foggy 330 yards viz max.
That morning I iced the wings and prop of my Scat Cat not once but TWICE.
Yep after a de-ice, dry off, refuel, hot choch and a bowl of chili, I went out in the fog once again to ice up my plane!

You guys in "Sunny California" don't know what you're missing!
Why today, we have 10 degrees, (woo hoo! ) and 15-20 m.p.h. winds that puts the wind chill factor below zero...
That's why we call it "building season"...

What is it you guys say about snow, "here this morning, gone this afternoon" ???

As for the troy built duct fan unit, do you use an airplane or a car transmitter??
I can just see you sitting in the easy chair and operate it by looking out the living room windscreen. LOL now that would be cool.
