Good video about propellers
« on: January 09, 2020, 03:56:22 AM »
Check this out.  Found it really interesting apart from my lack of mental capacity to take in all the tech stuff.  If you can't sit through it, come in at about 18 minutes where it explains a little about the torque effect on an aircraft from a rotating prop which we modelers often need to deal with.

Wow, Oldenginerod!  Thoroughly enjoyed it!  Quite apart from the education re the propeller the vintage  motion pictures of much of the history of powered flight were outstanding and reminders of the skills and thought invested in the development of not only the propeller but the historical development of the ever more capable aircraft that demanded those skills and mental creativity.

Thank you.

Narrated by our friend BYU, to boot.  VD~ Steve
"The United States has become a place where professional athletes and entertainers are mistaken for people of importance." - Robert Heinlein

In 1944 18-20 year old's stormed beaches, and parachuted behind enemy lines to almost certain death.  In 2015 18-20 year old's need safe zones so people don't hurt their feelings.
