    Mercury Sable RC steering help

    hey, i need some help with a project i am working on. what i am trying to do is take a full size car and turn it into a RC car. however, inorder to keep the car street legal, i need to keep all the controls operable by a person. i am using only off the shelf parts and servos that you can...

    Two stroke engines

    ever seen a bucket of oil burn? i would sugest a fin system simmilar to that used to cool engines with out raidiators. your 2-stroke probably has this on the cylender head. or if you do want to use the above idea, use a nonflamable substance such as water. one more thing. the people who...

    Theoretical Max of an IC Engine

    " If you put a tiny amount of high-energy fuel (like gasoline) in a small, enclosed space and ignite it, an incredible amount of energy is released in the form of expanding gas. "-http://auto.howstuffworks.com/engine3.htm" ^ well according to this| site i am right...

    Theoretical Max of an IC Engine

    not entirely true, because if as you say the pistion creates a vaccum, then there would be nothing to push the pistion on downward stroke, thus no running engine. the way it works is this, the Gas/air mixture is ignited. im no expert in chemisty but what i understand is that when you turn a...

    What type of fan generally yiels the fastest output velocity?

    im just curious, because some of your reasearch might help me in a model Ufo i am building, that is and has been grounded untill i get more money to by 4 extra ducted fans to supply the rest of the needed lift

    What type of fan generally yiels the fastest output velocity?

    but why do you need such high rates? what would they be be used for.

    Theoretical Max of an IC Engine

    assuming the engine in quiestion is a four stroke it seems to me that the only limit on the max RPM of an IC engine would be at the point where the time it takes a piston to depress, and return to it's origional position (i will call that C in my mathmatical equation) is equal to the time it...

    Making a tiny hovercraft

    I found found this image in another fourm on this site, http://www.cincinnatifan.com/PlugFan.html" [Broken] if you spin the fan assembely in the right direction, it will "scoop" air into the center of the fan, and create a high pressure area there. if a housing can be built that will...

    What type of fan generally yiels the fastest output velocity?

    just out of curiosity, what are you trying to acomplish with building this device? also the transition from the larger tube to the smaller tube would eithere have to be gradual, and semi-smooth, or it would have to be very very smooth, and then could be more abrupt otherwise the air flow...

    IC engines

    I, in my 12 years of owning many large diesel powered boats/ yachts, I have never in my life encountered a marine diesel started by compressed air, from 15' boats all the way up to a 52' twin turbo diesel powered yacht, have ever heard of a boat started by compressed air, or even have a air...

    IC engines

    i just did a little reasearch and this is what i came up with http://www.greencarcongress.com/2006/01/startup_introdu.html

    IC engines

    here's an idea, devise a system to capture the heat generated by the electric drive moter and then channel that heat (with a liquid that holds heat well) to the diesel engine to keep it warm. Just a thought

    IC engines

    i would have to say that the most advanced IC engine would have to be one that has been converted to run on bio diesel or on keroscene. just out of curiosity, has anyone seen or heard of a desile engin that incorpeates the technology that disables 1 or 2 pistions so that they are not firing...

    Thrust dihedral

    here is the chart, for real this time

    Thrust dihedral

    all it contains is a chart that i created in excel, i will just create a pdf file like you suggested. zac ps on an unrelated idea, is there anyway to use a gyro to hold altitude pitch, yaw and roll, without any lifting surfaces. eg. wings
