    Can aeroplanes be like ships?

    the air in the envelope of a hot air balloon is still air, but because of heat it becomes so less dense that it floats upon the cool more dense air that surrounds it.

    Don't be like me!

    This,,, ^^^^^ right there,, your own words tell us all that this 25 minute waste of our time was indeed Click Bait!! Titled very specifically just to get us to watch your stupid video! Oh and by the way,,, the punch line, the whole point, of the funny video, was a giant fail, because of your deceit... IF,,, You had just edited the video down to the single minute that actually counted,,, Nobody including me, would be bitching you out...

    Don't be like me!

    It Is a click bait. I believed it would be an important safety video. But after a totally mundane flight, I am astounded to find that the trouble you were in was, forgetting to call your MOM! I will be sure to ignore your videos in the future,,, OH and I want 25 minutes of my wasted life returned!

    Today's flight for 2018

    I enjoyed your write up, as I have enjoyed all your stories. like I said before,, you must have a really good typewriter.... But this is different. You tried to make a flyin some time back, but it didnt take off,,, -1,,, OK. This time you tried again,,, you were the germ, you planted a seed, and it was good. Some help came to help tend that germ, that seed, that Idea,,, and it grew! I have known you for a long time through this forum, and think we are friends. I am proud of what you have done. Your germ/seed has produced what is probably the biggest gathering of Mooney's ANYWHERE,,,EVER!!! thanks for the write up and the pics...

    A bad day for my prop

    since the prop needs repair or replacement due to impact,,, would this trigger a prop strike engine tear down/inspection requirement? not sure how the requirements are worded,,, but i think this meets them!

    Flying from the right

    sooo,,, nobody has asked what must be a dumb question, why on earth will he be expected to take a check ride in the co-pilot seat?? I have never heard of such a Wrong thing to do!
  14. this may be the stripped hulk i saw in an add, on the wing and wheels, in the same area 2 years ago,,, i doesnt look any more viable now than it did then... price then,,,3500$ dont know what this guy paid for this,,, a guy would likely need to get this scrap hulk for free in order to make a flying mooney for a reasonable amount of money...
  15. hey op... do your senders have the wrong diameter cork floats on them?? too big, will float to full to the top, until the gas has gone way down,,, too big, will float too high with a partial tank of gas, and if they are too big in diameter,, when the have no gas to float on,,, they will still show gas in the tank, even though there is No gas for them to float on...
