Re: New drone rules for Canada...

This next comment isn't professional, it's just hobby-related. You guys are a bunch of prats. These new rules are bullshit. There's nowhere I can go that's not within 9km of some kind of aerodrome. I wasn't bothering anyone with my little models. None of them fly higher than 100 feet. I used to enjo...

Re: New drone rules for Canada...

Leftoftrack I never said I was going to "fight the man" I just said I wasn't going to do it. I'll have to stop flying my little models, because I live in a forested part of the country and other than the sports fields in town there isn't anywhere to go. That's why I've been building small, light an...

Re: Finally wages are coming up

This IS nice to see. With a salary of $82000/year, maybe this could entice some lads and lasses to think about this type of flying as a career. It's not top-drawer pay if you compare it to the big airlines, but it's a nice middle-class income, enough to make living in Whitehorse and having adventuro...

Re: New drone rules for Canada...

I wonder how they define a "drone". I have a couple of radio-controlled planes that I sometimes fly at the football or baseball field when there's no games going on. They are just balsa and tissue, but I bet they weigh a little more than 250 grams. I'm not about to go get a f##in' license or paint r...

Re: Can you scale the thrust to weight ratio of a turboprop?

If you're talking about just putting a PC-12 into an imaginary "growing machine", I imagine for metallurgical and fluid-dynamic reasons you'd have trouble getting the fuel control unit to function properly, in particular the pneumatic components with their tiny orifices and bellows and "calibrated l...

Re: CF 100 Restoration.

I will be donating to this. I had a layover in Calgary in the summer and visited this excellent museum. I poked around the CF100 and noted a great deal of corrosion on the wing in the spar area. The metal appears to be bulging and separating into large flakes. It looks like the top skins and spars a...

Re: Alcohol Free Beer

Now the beers that are "0.05 percent" or whatever- that's different. Even if there is one molecule of alcohol in the ingredients: you're in violation of the CARS right there. It doesn't specify how much. ... Also the "one molecule of alcohol" statement is absolute and total nonsense. Regular bread ...

Re: Is it really turning to ice

I don't know if it's turning to ice or not, but it definitely looks nice when it's really cold outside and the water is very hot. Something interesting is happening there. We can debate exactly what but it's still fun.
