    Cut two mooneys in half...

    And its a big reason why I think I might try and make it to oshkosh this year https://www.eaa.org/en/airventure/eaa-airventure-news-and-multimedia/eaa-airventure-news/eaa-airventure-oshkosh/05-23-2018-rare-legendary-xp-82-twin-mustang-aims-to-make-debut-appearance-at-airventure-2018 Now that I think about it, it must be really strange flying from that far off the center, with the Yak.

  3. I thought you guys might find this cool. I fly r/c discus launch gliders. My friend Spencer is an avid aerospace engineer and r/c enthusiast, and he recently broke the record for fastest R/C aircraft with his glider! He clocked 545mph in the mountains above Tehachapi at around 6000ft, where the winds were 60-80mph. He achieved this speed by using the soaring principle called Dynamic Soaring. Here is a video of him making the record flight. To put it simply, dynamic soaring is where you fly in a diagonal circular path on the leeward side of a windy hill, and use the changing gradients of high wind, and no wind(blocked by the hill) to propel the model faster and faster. Unlike my discus launch gliders, these things need a lot of weight to keep momentum and stability, so they weigh almost 30lbs.He built the glider himself and has been developing new airfoils and structures for his gliders, pushing the boundaries for whats possible. At mach .8, this is well within the transonic region, which is a difficult region to get past, with the increased drag and all. They had previously put G meteres inside. He said they recorded a max of 125g+ which is the highest the sensors could go.

    I am not using shared hosting, I did pay extra for my own, and I'm using a service, Mailgun, to send emails through the website, to get a better inbox hit rate until the credibility of the site's IP is established. Seems to be working as I haven't had a non deliverable email in a week now!

    I'm trying to justify going to Oshkosh to give out a bunch of free t shirts and promote/meet people. But I need peoples opinion. I figure it'll cost me roughly $1k to get airline tickets/airventure tickets, t shirts, etc..to make the trip. OR I could spend that money on an emailer from AOPA pilot magazine where it will be read by approx 20k pilots, where they could simply click right to my site. Is there another reason why I should come to oshkosh instead of spending it on online marketing I'm not thinking of that would benefit WingSwap more? Ideally I'd like to do both, but budget and all that. I will be in an email from Flying mag in a few days, so I will see how that works out, and that will play into my decision. What do you think?

    Anyone from MooneySpace?

    Aside from WingSwap HQ? Hmmm. It's its a 10 minute drive/uber to the coast at point mugu, and there's the largest outdoor shopping mall a 2 minute drive from the airport. Other than that, Camarillo doesn't have that much in the way of things to do off airport nearby. As most know though, the Waypoint Cafe on the airport is the best diner in the country. The downside is everyone knows that, and so the wait is usually an hour.

    That's kind of sad haha. Do not many transient visitors come by your airport?

    I'm worried adding mandatory bits of info like that will take away from a lot of the appeal that makes the website so easy to use, both for the browser, and the seller. I could make it like controller, where you have this gigantic page detailing every aspect of the thing youre trying to sell, but to me at least, that dissuades me from making the listing. Leaving a big description area leaves room for the seller to include what they want, which is who I am trying to attract the most. What I can do is include a placeholder text in the description box that reminds the seller to include the useful load, before they start typing.

    Okay, sorry for the delay, the "year" is now optional, for items that might not need a year in front of it. Also the phone number is now optional, however my dev informs me that like Barnstormers, the exposed phone number is a fairly low risk of being picked up by phone scammer lists. Lots of new posts up!

    The phone number is optional, you don't have to fill that out. Let me talk to my dev and get back to you!
