Any cool new amphibs at OSH? by GuppyPilot[_2_]
Missed OSH this year due to work. Shearwater aircraft claims to be there with a mockup or prototype. Anybody seen it/taken any pics? I'm also interested in the AeroCat, if they came back this year. Thanks! Brooks RV-7

Filament wound airfoils. (again) by [email protected]
Howdy, I was channel surfing the other day, and caught a glimpse of how they make rotor blades for the Hind MI-8 helicopter on RT. (Russian News) Very Interesting.

Fiber alignment and twist. by [email protected]
Howdy, If I have a long recatangular box like a spar, and want to reduce twisting in the long axis, is it better to lay out the fiberglass mat with the fibers aligned at a 45 to the length, or parallel to the length? For the sake of argument, presume that all I'm concerned about is twist.
