After enjoying the fruits of your labors, we all need a place to chill. This is that place. Totally senseless irrelevant banter encouraged.

I don't care if you don't like Engineering. I don't care if you don't like Aviation.

There is no denying this guy has a tremendous Thought Process Machine!

Mike Patey ~ It's physics, math and engineering. Machine it, draft it, build it, test it, break it. Every time something new gets built, the entire world advances.

Solar Panel Wings on Custom Search and Rescue Bush Plane | Scrappy #59



Besides all that, check this out. The Propeller on Scrappy came from one of these!



:crazy: :smoke:

That second video also explains how me took a factory Carbon Cub and modified it to his design needs!

Solar Panel Wings on Custom Search and Rescue Bush Plane. He's going to be able to not only rescue pilots and passengers of damaged aircraft, he'll be able to fix any structural breakage that's preventing a takeoff of that downed damaged aircraft.

He'll be able to search for downed aircraft for extended periods. I can go down and run equipment not normally available in the Back Country.

He's going to sling TWO Electric Motorcycles off the wings for camping excursions. Or reach downed aircraft away from a landing spot.

He's going to be able to watch a Projector TV while camping!

Watching a movie in isolated land on a LARGE projector screens at 12,000+ feet! :crazy: :roflmao:

And, MORE.

Scrappy going be a Aviation Touchstone!

PURE fucking GENIUS!

It's ALIVE!!!

Scrappy makes surprise appearance at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2021!!!



More here. Copied from about 15 minutes in...



It's just a Static Display BUT, she flew in! Check out the Ghosted Supporters Names on the Empennage!

Now that she's there, I expect a demonstration flight of her this Oshkosh! But, I didn't expect her to be there this year, so don't count on what I do or don't expect to become reality or not! :roflmao:

This is going to be an historic Fat Tire, Bush Plane, Back Country, STOL Aircraft!!! On that, you can mark my words and this date on the calendar!

:woohoo:

Mike Patey Early Flight Envelope/Parameters Discussion/Explanation Scrappy EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2021!!!

Mike Patey discusses Scrappy's Early Flight Envelope/Parameters Experience (kts and burn rates...etc.) now & potential & certain changes ahead - EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2021!!!

IF you're familiar with the vernacular you'll understand every word he utters. Amazing discussion!



Have to update descriptors! :tup: :winky:

Scrappy the historic Fat Tire, Back Country, STOL, Search & Rescue, Bush Plane, Off Road Glamper (including Solar Powered - Electric Dirt BikeS (2), refueling other aircraft capable and BIG Screen TV) Aircraft!!!

One thing I noticed that looks out of place in my minds eye: Mike Patey did not design in Winglets a proven engineering enhancement. :dunno: I'm thinking he must not have had the time to build or install them and went with these Flat Side wingtips. Interesting!

AWESOME! :edge:

Check Out Yellow Bird 44's STOL landing!!!

Post by WhiteHotAfterburner »

For those uninitiated and those initiated :winky:

Check out Yellow Bird 44's landing! He dropped in 'short' but - DAMN! :tup:

Twilight STOL Demo - Group 1/Round 1 - EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2021



They might be doing STOL Drags (they typically would - relatively recent development).

STOL Drags are these STOL aircraft drag racing each on a marked course - full stops and starts, there and back!

They're pretty amazing to watch, even from this distance! :winky:

This might be a very unusual occurrence...

I don't believe I've ever heard of a Super Storm hitting Oshkosh during Oshkosh 2021.

As of a couple of hours ago, the area was/is under a PDS. A PDS is a Particularly Dangerous Situation which is issued for areas that include higher populations. Storms will have hail roughly 1 to 2 inches. And a strong chance of a Tornado.

Check out how these folks are 'attempting' to protect their aircraft.

Check out Scrappy. Ol' Mikey didn't think this one through! :facepalm: :roflmao:

I tried to post the video at the 2:58 point but couldn't. That's where Scrappy appears.



Scrappy is covered in carpets and rugs. I am pretty sure I saw some mattresses tied down to the tops of wings. Bubble Wrapped and Stretch Wrapped.

IF this place gets hit hard it 'may be' the most expensive public event in history. I don't recall this ever occurring ON an airshow.

I wonder if Mike Patey is puzzling over some "PTP" for Scappy in his overripe melon! PTP = Protect The Part!

Should be an interesting evening...

A Oshkosh 2021 Storm live just popped up...

Oshkosh 2021 Dodged A Hail Bullet!

Post by WhiteHotAfterburner »

Cory Robin, Flying Cowboy...went around checking aircraft after the worst of the storm had passed.



They got lucky! I saw the radar. The strongest of the storm went right through the area.

Wish it were raining here. I'm melting! :winky: :roflmao:

Beautiful, In An Odd Way....Opener BlackFly...

Post by WhiteHotAfterburner »

Opener BlackFly Oshkosh 2021 - previewing upcoming sales event.



Man, that thing is beautiful in an flying egg-shaped kind of way. :winky:

I don't like it's fly attitude, but that's just me. I prefer to see out ahead, not up at the stars, for take-off or landing.

However, IF it maintains its Ultra-Light classification ANYONE will be able to own and fly one without a General Aviation Pilot's License which I find intriguing.

Into The Wild Blue Yonder! :smoke:
