"WE" remember being appalled at the specter of "1984".
Then 1984 came and went and we forgot about it.

But "THEY" figured out how to entice us all to WANT to be Spied on, codified and pigeon holed..

And so the simple modest Cell phone has augmented the PC and become our nemesis.
Anyone off that "grid" can be accounted for and tracked with Satellites.

We've adopted and accepted SKY NET world wide and we can not escape.

They see us when we are sleeping, they know when we are awake,
they know if we've been bad or good,
so be good for goodness sake.

I'm pretty sure that in this instance they have used, not my search history, but my 'links-clicked on' history.
It's obvious, now I think about it, but it did seem like a really clever trick at the time.

That's OK, as long as THEY don't feel the need to probe.

Found this "Similar" design

So if Slowly isn't SLOW ENOUGH then that thing might do the trick.

Speaking of SLOW ...
Did any of you see my SymSimSam elliptical offering

It's a symmetrical 3Dflier and my BIG one flys so slow that
even I can think fast enough to do 3D flying - well ,errr, ummm most of the time.

I think I even have a vid of it ...
(0 min 0 sec)

This evolved to a larger motor for spectacular Sow verticals
and I reinforced it with lots of Kevlar THREAD to elimante some
floppyness due to the Light weight materials used.

The SymSimSam is a hoot, and that was a very impressive maiden flight.
Very entertaining.

The Old Fogy ish has a huge bundle of down-thrust and a fair bit of 'right.'
How does this compare with what I should give the Slowly?
I've been contemplating giving it a reasonable dollop of 'down' but not that much.

Looking at the Wing incidence of the OldF I gotta wonder what they were thinking.

I saw the motor angle and was flabbergasted !

The Slowly has a lower incidence so I used "NORMAL" downthrust 2-3 deg .
There is so much Polyhedral that the Right Thrust needed might actually NOT be needed.

I've never built one of those.

IT has no LG and other weight penalty's either.

Your guess is as good or better than mine !

OK. I'll use the good old TLAR.
That usually works quite well.

If you are asking about mine, the answer is that things go slowly here at the Whiskers Aircraft Factory.
Little real progress has been made. The planning staff do a lot of thinking but the production staff are not converting these thoughts into action.
To make things worse, management have now shifted priority to rebuilding the aerobatic plane Bluey.
The directive from management was that both these jobs can be done in parallel. This is fine in theory, but getting the production staff to implement the plan is proving difficult.
Eventually both planes will fly.

Sounds like you have a STAFF infection.

Best to get that cleared up 1st !

Old'un Staff infection. Resistant to everything. Logic, reason, threats, nothing works.

Valerie is going down to Melbourne for a week soon. Maybe I'll get some more production happening then.

Or not...
