There's a distinct lack of security in your avatar as well - may it live long and prosper.

Slope / SIRIUS 3.05m REICHARD
« Last post by paulinfrance on Yesterday at 19:46:14 »
Hi,
      After a lousy day at the slope with my rubbish Cmpro Discus Cs ( Cs = crappy sh*t ? ) 
2.65m, 1.4k all up  ( battery 3S 2200 mah included ) wing surface 32 dm2 and a 35 x 36 brushless and 11 x 6 prop, I was looking at three gliders for field and slope flying, for a bit of aerobatics as well, I was looking at three gliders in my price range, Fibre glass fuselages and foam wings are a must for me,
N 1 choice, the SIRIUS 3.05m 2nd Proxima and 3rd Svist from REICHARD, is it possible and worth fitting slotted air brakes, or are the butterfly flaps enough, I ask this as I ripped out one of the commands of an aileron and the elevator on the last landing with my Discus, our slope runway (that's what the locals call it  :ev ) is bushes of Broom,,
that's where the slotted air brakes come in.

 thanks Paul.

It's just because we don't use https.
We wouldn't be secure enough to engage in transactions with credit cards etc.

Cars & motorsport / Re: Could this be the answer to charging electric cars?

It could be that the liquid is recharged on site.

A few years ago I read about a similar storage scheme on a remote island in the pacific, basically had two tanks, during the day the spent liquid was passed through a "recharging station" from a "spent" tank to a "full" tank using solar electric for the power, then at night it was transferred the other way releasing the charge. 

Did anybody also read the article where they have made concrete that acts like a battery (using phosphorus ions), low charge density, but your whole house would be able to store electricity.

The pace of technological development is quickening.

I'm more interested in the whole cycle costs, money and pollution.

How much energy spent in getting the metal oxide constructed and in the correct state?  Transportation?  Disposal arrangements (imagine every car on our roads doing this)?

We get all these wonder products waved at us but usually little or nothing about any assessment of the REAL costs.
Must say there is no comment on all that in the article.

Are we going to get electric model flyers filling tanks using hand pumps just like glow and petrol?  ^-^
