RE: 2 gliders in same thermal one is circling normally

The thermal is putting out a fixed amount of energy at any given point in time so the amount of vertical climb is going to the sailplane that utilizes the rising air most efficiently.

RE: Hughes chargers

Sorry to see them leave the market place. Like so many things, the market for the best is a lot smaller than the market for stuff that gets the job done even though it might have to be replaced.

Hughes chargers

Have the Hughes chargers disappeared from the scene? I have three of them and they have always worked great.
I can't seem to locate their site any longer so I thought that I would check here.

RE: von richtenhoven

It is real. His official portrait shows it in better detail and worn higher on his neck.

Wikipedia shows his official portrait and lists the dates and descriptions of his awards and honors.

RE: Can you build my Hydro-Atmospheric Assisted Machine 4 £20k

This has been an interesting thread.

RE: Jack's Spad VII 5/20/12

Doesn't look like many people here identify with true scratch built airplanes.

I think that it will be a close run this year between the giant Spads for best WWI at Bomber field.

RE: Where is this hobby going

We flew rear rotor 60s that cranked 15,000 rpm on the down lines translating to about 135 mph. Hardly park flyer speeds. Speeds were already above 200 mph on specialty planes. I know that I have...

RE: Where is this hobby going

I read all of the posts to date and agree with the three or four posters that the model airplane will continue to evolve and carry on regardless of the doom sayers. I have been involved with modeling...

RE: Sad day

Always a sad situation when people are lost in the line of duty. The public has a very limited understanding as to what these people do and how valuable they are to the fire fighting community.

RE: OS 160 Twin

I ran both the 120 and 160 twins from 1990 to 2003 with great success. The 160s are much better performers than the 120 Gemini IIs were. The bulk of my flying was in a Great Planes SuperSportster...

RE: Robart hinges for 20cc and larger

The real issue is that they are "Robart type" not real Robart hinges. I have seen some very good Robart copies while others are molded either from substandard plastic or the molding procedure is not...
