A conclusion is simply the place where someone got tired of thinking.

That's your conclusion.

Or, did you ever stop to think and forget to start again, I seem to have that problem from time to time, I think...

What do you think, a tagger? A lurker busting at the seams to admonish? Somebody running around wanting to be interesting and intriguing? Somebody with a special message just for you? They clearly don't know about posting in appropriate sections.

Perhaps he means the finished aircraft is where the builder gets tired of finishing. As in, the machine still looks like a hail-damaged Volvo but one's elbows look like old men's adam's apples...

Default Photon torpedoes...full spread!

I think "Hochong" is a "flinger" (someone who throws verbage around a forum slightly based on the topic, just to see what happens, like a drive-by egg chucking )

An aphorism is a simple statement of some truth or other, like "Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely" I say: "Absolute power will raise my electric bill....absolutely!"

Speaking of electricity:
I have finally had enough spare time to put the finishing touches on my own hybrid retract main gear design. The tricky fail safe down and locked part had me stumped as well as the non-hydraulic non-electric actuator part that got me thinking about my own gear in the first place. That and the design of the shape of the strut. I use a new CAD program (Alibre) that does some easy 3D modelling. I will try to get it together in a DWG file.
Now, back to topic....
I almost bought a Beechcraft and came close to bailing on the build! I could sure use an airplane right now! But, reason returned. I will rent if I have to. The metal on the old tin cans (especially the Beech-nut variety) is pretty pricey and the one I was considering needed a few, well A LOT of newer stuff...

One more thing..
Did anyone see the guy on Marc's list begging for help to finish his Mark IV?
I think he is even willing to farm stuff out! He's from Florida I think. Maybe he has cash or maybe something else....

Anyway, I am on a mission now. I GOTTA GET THIS THING FINISHED!!!


has anybody seen my MGS epoxy around here? I had a whole bunch of it. It was in the back of my pick up when I went to Michigan?????

Go Clutch Go! Wanna see your retractedible gear stuff. Dont stop your plane. Old spam cans are a hole lot of money.
Ho chong is absent. Doesnt want to step into the light. He's like Insp. Clouseau, from the pink panther movie, with only his toe tips sticking out from under the curtain. Is probably building an Ibis or a biplane-eze or some other clandestine double canard, 'I dont wanna go public' project. Faget him- kill this thread.

I banned the user who started this thread and deleted another spam thread. This is starting to get annoying. Don't these people have anything better to do.... like maybe build an airplane of their own design and go fly it....
