Re: Legends dropping like flies

Re: Let's design a body for a Rhoades Car

We discussed types of pedalling, really got away from the rhoadescar. Which was the best part.

OP wasn't so serious, so we were free to roam. Obvoiusly some of us WANT to. . . .

Can you do 200a? I have a dozen 80100 and half that in 8085 that the price was better than the potential uses. Reverse might be nice.

Re: MadAss donor bike result

Is that the Sym or whatever knockoff of the MadAss? Looks like a solid platform. Missed your chance at a factory electric. But that's just 800w anyway. I could imagine what hub you've have thrown on this. https://gas2.org/wp-content/uploads/2016/04/madass-1-800x445.jpg https://i0.wp.com/paultan.org/...

Re: MUSIC thread

Now that sounds like the theme for a TV detective. These days he drives a Tesla. Or maybe we give Captain Hook from 'Once Upon a Time' his own starship for a new 'Star Trek' series. He could play the TV detective, too.

I could double my range and still be within the 100 lb Texas limit. I guess you got a point about what that could really mean. That sh...

I think the reaction to a Kardasian is exaggerated, except I'm sure they're just using the excuse. The excitement over 'Bird Box' is overblown, but it's okay.

Re: another e plane upstart

The broader engine pattern might be to circumvent the pfactor of the pusher motor. Trimotors have a problem, especially when the lone opposing spin motor stops. A broader wingspan is like a long handled wrench, it gives greater power to control surfaces. So I might theorize two low power motors oppo...

You've got the idea. The only issue with the built in batteries is I need to swap them out. Maybe an external USB battery will work. This is for work: Television, still photography.

So I have these flashlights that would take 3 AAA batteries in a clip, but I can use an 18650 instead. I'm curious about using rechargeables instead of other size batteries. I remember voltages didn't used to match up.
