Anyone know much about the Odyssey dry cell batteries? by Sliker
I'm thinking of using their biggest one, rated at 925 amps to crank my IO-540 300hp engine. I'm wondering if they are the same type of construction as the old dry cell flashlight batteries? The type that had that black carbon inside, which are still sold as "heavy duty" D cells, ect. The only...

Tube Fuse Oil Holes by John[_17_]
Does anybody still do the old technique of drilling holes before tacking tubes together to interconnect them for oiling the fuse when it's finished? I've been told that's not done any more, because of the realization that as long as the welds are air tight, the oxygen trapped in the tube is...

Fie and phooey on RVG!!! Yea FAA!!! by Bret Ludwig
http://www.vansairforce.net/rvator/1-2008-RVator.pdf On reading this it's obviously a shot across the bow of the yuppie- popular fast build kit industry. All I can say is, It's About Time and You Damn Skippy this is needed and right. RVG/Van's is essentially promoting, marketing and...

homemade external/internal antenna for handheld. by gorgon
The subject sort of tells most of what I'm looking for. I have an Aeronca and would like to increase the trans/recep of my handheld. There was an article by Weir a couple of years ago in Kitplane, I think, on how to make one. Help? Thanks Mark in third world Wyoming.

Tube wing spars by [email protected]
Actually I'm interested also to know if any other designs besides BD aircraft utilize wing spars that are made of aluminum tube. So if you know of any I'd like to know what they are.

700lbs? by wesleymarceaux[_2_]
I know this will not do much for unbelievers, But I have no problem believing that an 1835 engine with a belt reduction system would fly an airplane with a takeoff weight of 1050lb's.. The performance didn't look to be that bad either. I think a good 1835 vw engine with reduction can do...

CriCri / Cricket Kit by [email protected]
(cross-posted from marketplace) I have a complete CriCri / Cricket kit with original plans, build manual, engines and props available. This is a great kit! My reason for selling is that I bought a nearly complete CriCri recently, so this kit has become redundant to my needs. The CriCri is a...

This link lets you send a note directly to the Senate. http://capwiz.com/military/issues/alert/?alertid=11007971 They have been generous in voting themselves raises. Isn't it about time we insisted that they care for veterans as well? Senator Daniel K. Akaka (D-HI), Chairman of the Veterans'...

Lawrance 5 Cyl. Mini-Radial Engines by Victor Bravo
I have a couple of Lawrance 5 cylinder mini radials. They were used as the APU electrical generator engine for the B-29 bomber, and perhaps for other ground power applications. They're about 24-30 inches in diameter, and weigh 60 or 80 pounds approx. They are cute as hell, and look like half size...

A Cirrus? You gotta be kidding me. I know, this is a quarterly topic for discussion, but I swear, EAA is becoming AOPA. I guess it pays better or something. When was the last warbird article in Sport Aviation? OK, how 'bout the last restoration of an antique by the owner (not by someone who...
