F4F-3 Grumman Wildcat 'peanut' scale My first complete balsa model from a rough plan by Roger Aime, French peanut scale genius: peanut.scale.free.fr Plans courtesy of: peanut.scale.free.fr Colour scheme is high visibility, as used on USS Ranger (North Atlantic 1941). The 1/72 scale hobbyboss kit was an exceptionally useful reference. Video of rather poor flight testing to follow.

Compact Fairey Gannet Contraprop Ground Mobility dynmicpara First, the British Gannett's twin Mamba turboprop engine spinning contraprops is far SAFER than an engine on each wing, offers no torque problems and takes up less space for operations off aircraft carriers and catapult-equipped cruisers/battleships/submarines. A common-sense civilian would think the US Navy would want contra-rotating props to get two planes in the space of every 1 twin-with-engine-on-each-wing, but RACKETEERS NEED AN EXCUSE FOR BIGGER CARRIERS. So safety and efficiency was rejected on purpose and men have died needlessly ever since. Furthermore, the USN's R3Y Tradewind seaplane transport that could carry a pair of M113 Gavins or AmphiGavins today if we had them to do air-mech-strike from the sea....needed the British Mamba engines to drive its contraprops--but this would be bad for American aerospace ego since our engines failed (only the Brits and Russians figured out so far how to do contraprop engines) and the "tail hook" aircraft carrier "mafia" wanted to prevent their patrol plane rivals from being top-dogs running the place by killing ALL SEAPLANES: batreform2.com Next, this video shows how folding-wing, compact military STOL aircraft need to be GROUND-MOBILE like German V-2s or Iraqi SCUD surface-to-surface missiles as LTG Gavin made happen with our own SSMs ...so they can operate away from obvious and vulnerable air bases and runways and not be destroyed by commando or ...

Miniature 3 cyl. steam engine with contra-rotating propeller This tiny three cylinder engine is a bit of a mystery to me. First of all there is no exhaust, steam appears to be vented from beneath the cylinders, perhaps the bottom of the piston valves? As such is runs very wet, and condensate is also forced out of the end of the hollow prop shaft. The engine is beautifully machined, and so the lack of a proper exhaust is very strange. there is a large hex nut on a short length of horizontal thread between the end of the engine block and the contra-rotating gearing. The nut can be turned a few times but appears to do nothing.

General Gavin's XC-120 Pod-Equipped Plane dynmicpara Thanks to BomberGuy we have the first available footage of the Fairchild XC-120 "Pack Plane" plane inspired by General Gavin's 1947 KIWI pods concept described in his book, "Airborne Warfare": then brought to life: Not only has BomberGuy found motion footage he's found some pictures of pods we haven't seen yet. Having the entire US Army KIWI pod-equipped would force it to be loaded and ready-to-fight on a moment's notice as well as give it hard shelters on the scene that can be made into fortified "BATTLEBOXes" So why didn't the USAF buy the XC-120s? ...which could have been drastically improved by turboprop engines and then British Mamba contraprop engines like what the Navy's R3Y Tradewind needed: batreform2.com The answer is CORRUPTION. The USAF run by Douhet strategic bombing and fighter jock MIG-ace egotists WANT TO WIN WARS ALL BY THEMSELVES USING FIREPOWER not help the US Army get there and win wars by MANEUVER. This rotten condition continues to the present day. The 1947 National Security Act creating the separate-service USAF and USMC have been disasters for American military effectiveness as its created two new racketeering bureaucracies, one intellectual but selfish, the other imbecilic and selfish, USAF needing to be limited to operations above 10, 000 feet (USAF) with the Army given tactical transport and CAS aircraft missions reforming an Army Air Force dedicated to supporting their ground ...

Convair XFY-1 Pogo Amazingly, Aerofly took an experimental aircraft (that was scrapped) and made it for the Aerofly Pro Deluxe RC simulator, so we could find out how hard the plane was to fly in real life! That's commendable. The plane program was scrapped because no one could land it reliably. On April 29, 1954, James F. "Skeets" Coleman, a Lieutenant Colonel in the Marine Reserve and a Convair engineering test pilot, made the first tethered flight in the Pogo. Mr. Coleman was one of the few real pilots. Some irate viewer scolded and insulted me by saying there was another pilot, Chuck Meyers, and told me I was out of line with my video, cause I left his name out!! I meant not to dis-credit anybody, but merely point out Coleman's technique for landing this plane for the video. My info came from the following website. It is the Smithsonian Institute's Museum's Website! www.nasm.si.edu This is a credible site, and they also have a Pogo there. Another is in San Diego Aerospace Museum, which I have many pictures of. I never saw Meyer's name on the site, so how would I know who else flew it? Why would I even care because the names of other pilots mean nothing for this video anyway. Here is how Lt. Col.Coleman he did it. He approached the field low with the engine set at flight-idle. At mid-field, he popped the control stick back into his stomach and pitched the airplane's nose straight up. The speed fell sharply but just as he reached the peak of his climb, The pilots applied power and stopped ...
