    stansdds replied to a thread NASCAR Aero in Racer's Paddock
    Yep, the goal is to create aero packages that allow cars to pass rather than getting stuck behind another car. It also decreases the aero advantage of being the lead car. We've seen instances where a slower car inherits the lead due to cautions and pit stops, but better cars cannot catch the leader because they must contend with the aero forces created by surrounding cars.

    stansdds replied to a thread Kyle wins ,cool in Racer's Paddock
    Due to his injury at Daytona at the beginning of the season, he missed too many races. NASCAR granted him an exemption, but stipulated that he had to have one win and be in the top 30 in the points. That's a monumental task, nearly everyone said he could not meet the top 30 part, but with 4 wins he is only 23 points from being in the top 30. Kyle has talent and right now he is very focused. A focused Kyle Bush is a winning Kyle Bush. Never before have I been a fan of either of the Bush boys, but I will admit that I am rooting for Kyle to not only get into the Chase, but to win the championship just to prove all the "experts" wrong.

    I did not see that particular caution, but NASCAR does seem to have a habit of throwing a caution for mystery debris, especially when there seems to be little excitement in the race. Then too, drivers seem to routinely throw their water bottles onto the track to bring out the caution so they can pit and not lose position. NASCAR needs to put a stop to that mess.

    WOW! Polished metal and those long, pointy prop spinners make it look like it's ready for racing at Reno. :applause:

    Mid-30's for certain, perhaps early 30's.

    Red, rotating beacon use started in the early 1950's, flashing navigation lights were often used as anti-collision lights at night, then strobes came into being in the late 60's.

    It is still in beta testing, I don't have it, but it does have a VC, but not everything in the VC currently works.

    I grew up with the Apollo program. I wanted to be an astronaut and go to the moon, but those dreams ended with the cancellation of the program. It's hard to believe that man first set foot on the moon 46 years ago and last set foot on the moon almost 43 years ago.

    AvGas is more expensive than JetA in the U.S. At my local airport (KFCI) AvGas is currently $5.75/gal., Jet A is $4.79/gal.

    The modern panel would also be at home in a modern, restored Tigercat. By the way, instead of using the FS9 GPS-500, you could save panel space with the GPS-295 and there are also freeware GNS-430 and 530 gauges available.

    stansdds replied to a thread Kyle Busch in Racer's Paddock
    Brad needed an additional 10 laps or a caution at the 5 to go point. Another win for Kyle and he might not make the chase, but if he continues with his current trend he might win the championship. I've never been a Kyle Bush fan, but I must confess that I am rooting for him this year. On a side note, I'm really tired of cautions being caused by water bottles and anything else the driver can find to throw onto the track. Brian France likes making rules, how about some rules about drivers littering the track?

    stansdds replied to a thread Air Force One in The NewsHawks
    Glad to hear that it will be moved indoors! Such a restoration takes a lot of time and keeping the paint and aluminum polished is a huge challenge. Putting her indoors will definitely help to preserve such a beautiful work of art.

    Ultimately, I expect R/C drones to be banned from private use. They will be licensed for commercial use and the government will be able to use them, but I do expect a ban in the future. All because of a few who misuse them. Peeping on their neighbors and flying them in restricted or prohibited airspace, and flying them in a manner which endangers others. It takes only a few bad apples to spoil the entire barrel of apples.
