Re: 2016 One Item A Day For BM List....

How's this for holes? Not too happy with the wood fiber swamp cooler fabric. Ordered some plastic kind. Glad I got a 600 gpm bilge pump, had to increase the power to 50% to get it to lift water 3 feet. My 12 volt timer came in, not sure if I need to use it. Canceled the 1-1/4" conduit canopy fitting...

Re: cooling your tent or van

Swamp Cooler Success! Got my 80 watt 10" fan in today and had purchased a bildge pump earlier. And I got a dimmer switch for reducing the pump flow. Everything working great. Started test at 9 pm at 50% pump power. Reduced it to 25% of it's 3.5 amps capacity. The fan will need to be full power. It a...

Hi Fellow Burners, Slowly making progress since my wing design needed to be revised. Here is the last set of three views until I need to take her apart and work on bolting the fuselage, cutting the fabric, sewing the seat webbing and making the wing shaft work more smoothly. http://cdn2.hubspot.net/...

Hey Elliot, I might need help with my DaVinci Flying Machine if it gets a flat tire. Take off speed is predicted to be 88 mph!

Re: Da Vinci Flying Machine

Version 2 is coming along. It's going to be about half scale so kids or small adults can fly it. It has a copper propeller shaft. The fuslage and wing fabric is from a 12' patio umbrella. The wings and tail are bamboo. About 20 foot wingspan. http://cdn2.hubspot.net/hubfs/216938/Da_Vinci_Flying_Mach...

Da Vinci Flying Machine

Here's my Da Vinci Flying Machine for Burning Man. Da Vinci was wrong, there is enough human power to fly with modern materials and designs. I figure about 20 minutes of flight time.
