Flight test update - endpoints and elbows by nauga
A few more hours in the past few days. I took the Bud Dake news as a wakeup call and pulled the airplane apart and inspected everything on Monday. Nothing scared me, so it went back together. Oil is still dark, so I figured I'm getting blowby somewhere (more on that in a sec). More than one...

Trim tab location by Jay
I've noticed that a lot of aircraft put trim tabs on the trailing edges of the normal movable control surfaces. Wouldn't this just deflect the control surface to neutralize the forces and not affect much change except drag? It seems like you'd want to put the trim tab on the fixed part of the...

Space slingshot was: Space Elevator by Keith Goodwin
Hi everyone. This is an extremely interesting thread, and I have been reading avidly. As a glider pilot, based in the U.K (not that my location makes the blindest bit of difference), I am reasonably familiar with the process of using a cable to get airborne, whether behind another aircraft (the...

Leading edge protection search by Tim Hickey
I have a question, and I suspect that someone in this group can help me. I fly a Zenith CH-300 that has a wood prop. Actually, I think that it may be the last prop ever made by the Great American Propeller Co. This prop does not have any leading edge protection. Years ago I found a product sold by...

Windsheild cleaning by OSKI 3
I don't know how many folks I have talked to, do NOT know about. Bounty paper towels (MICROWAVE/COOKING). I have used these for 15 years and have not had to replace a windshield yet. These towels are specifically for Microwave use and have No metal recycled crap in them. A lot better than trying...

Quirky LCD's on Ancient Trimble Flightmate Pro by jls
What's causing the letters and characters to be incomplete, like for instance, a "T" without the horizontal part or a "P" without its vertical line? It clears up and does great sometimes and I noticed it will sometimes clear up after it has rested in a hot airplane for a while? Yeah, it's an...

Prop balancing and assorted observations - long by Dave Hyde
I've had a kind of unnerving vibration in my RV-4 since first flight. I looked into harmonic dampers, but they're pretty expensive, so I decided to give dynamic balancing a shot first. $200 and 1 hour later, my engine runs *much* smoother. It measured 0.3+ ips on the first run, so the guy weighed...

Ride from Milwaukee to OshKosh? by News1
I'm in Dallas, considering flying (commercial) to Milwaukee for OshKosh. I'd prefer not to rent a car myself. Could anyone give me a lift? I'd be glad to buy gas for your car or airplane, and dinner or lunch if you'd like it. I'd like to leave Milwaukee either later on Wednesday or early...

Plasma Reduces Jet Noise (Turbines?) by sanman
Here's an article: http://www.newscientist.com/news/news.jsp?id=ns99996073 So if plasma reduces jet noise, then can it reduce turbine noise? There are gyroplanes like the one made by Groen Bros, and also the old Fairy, which used ramjets on the rotortips to boost rpm and lift during takeoff, but...

Engine update, good and bad news by nauga
The bad news: There was a welded repair on the #2 cylinder, right next to the intake valve. Looks like the stress around the repair warped either the valve stem or the valve guide. There was no scoring on the cylinder walls and the rings were intact, and it was apparent that oil was coming in...
