    World's first 'sky-worthy' car

    NY Auto Show: World's first 'sky-worthy' car The vehicle has retractable wings allowing it to fit in a suburban garage. Thought this was rather interesting, even if it so darn slow. Its maximum speed is about 100 knots (185 km/h), cruises at 93 (172 km/h) and drives on the highway at about...

    A Special Visit

    Today in my aviation club at school, we had a man come talk to us. That man, who introduced himself as Mr. Pelingro, was on the ignition panel of Apollo 9 and 11. He worked on the cooling of the fuels in the Saturn 1b and V. You can see some of what he worked on here: The duct work on the...

    No more patch requests

    Well, bad news. The site I use to compile (and partly create) the patches I make, has been hacked and has been rendered useless. I'm not going to post a link in fear of spreading any viruses (if any) to the site but here is what it looks like at the moment. So, I really cannot make any...

    Favorite Shuttle Patch?

    Since there's a lot of shuttle mania going on not just here, but on the media and what not, I decided we should have a thread asking for people's favorite shuttle patch. My personal preference is STS-129's patch. I have no specific reason for liking it other than the fact that I really like...

    Request More Arrow Freighter Textures?

    I'm sure this has already been addressed, but not in any threads I could find. But honestly, the Arrow Freighter, AR-18 or whatever you want to call it needs some serious re-paints. It's a solid ship, and I think it wouldn't be doing it justice to not have more than two re-paints for it. Thanks...

    General Question How to attach Building Blocks 4.0 to a spacecraft?

    Just another stupid question from yours truly. Well I've had these (Space Station Building Blocks 4.0) downloaded for a while but i really haven't done anything with them yet, and I have no Earthly idea on how to attach a module to a space craft (I'm planning on using a space shuttle(default...

    Orbiter in your life

    Just an off topic thread here. Do you show it off to others or keep to yourself? I've kept it mostly to myself as I just moved well 400 miles from my home. I don't really come across to others as a person who might like this stuff. At least thats what some of my friends have said. Ive told some...

    Problem Shuttle Lua MFD Problems

    Hey all I've been playing around with the shuttle for a while but nothing more serious than launching into orbit and releasing payloads and ending the scenario. And I've always just used the Lua MFD for launching. Then a couple days ago, it started to weird stuff to me. Well just one thing...

    Hey all, I'm sure you all are very familiar with the DG-IV-II by DanSteph. And the Arrow Frigate included in his UCGO package. On the Arrow Freighter there is a convenient little thing that automatically lands you and the flight computer on the delta glider makes a lot of different maneuvers...

    MFD Automatic Orbit MFD

    OK, i wouldn't know any of the mathematics behind this, but it'd be great if you're using R-Warp 1.5 when that simply puts you on a collision course with a planet/ship/station. It'd be great for lunar missions and simple orbit and de-orbit missions.
