I think electric motors come in many ft lbs less than we used to have on the T-props.

The Brasilia I used to fly would really make your feet dance on the rudder pedals every time you adjusted the power even a little.

Turboprops are notorious for their propellor torque.
@ Jetlink « Sun 11:05:20 pm »
Would probably have marginally more torque trying to turn the plane left, but not as much as a turbo prop.

Would be very similar to a recipricating powerplant turning a propellor.

wonder what the piloting experience is with an electric motor, just the instant response time of adding more force. Propeller still has the "slippage" as it's not like it's grabbing pavement like a car tire.

It’s probably safer to ride your bike on the runway than it is a highway not that I would recommend either.
@ Jetlink « Sun 8:28:17 am »
Might be a little tough to outrun though.
@ Jetlink « Sun 8:28:07 am »
Easy to avoid and out manuever on the surface.

Jets really aren’t that manueverable. The whole 120’ wingspan and gas turbine engines response time thing.

I was cycling through the departures from the Cleveland airport I must’ve missed the earlier flight. I added the flight aware site to my phone

Correct

Short flight to Chicago. Long drive home.

Ahh makes sense

I suspected as much. That was back before I paid much attention to trains and when I was living out of state.

I wasn’t familar with the other person’s name, assumed it was "Talk"
@ Andy24 « Fri 10:22:37 pm »
probably
@ ~Z~ « Fri 10:17:14 pm »
i can only guess the attendance sucked even worse than expected because he rescheduled the meeting twice, and changed the link to access it.
@ ~Z~ « Fri 10:16:40 pm »
did "talk" not talk to speak with you and landon?
@ Andy24 « Fri 10:05:31 pm »
The other person may have be "Talk"
@ Andy24 « Fri 10:05:05 pm »
Landon did do the Google Meet with the newly updated link, it was myself, Landon and one other person
@ ~Z~ « Fri 9:39:15 pm »
so did the stream actually end up happening Andy? If so, who showed up?
@ Andy24 « Fri 9:01:13 pm »
I joined and found the new link
@ ~Z~ « Fri 8:47:45 pm »
i think he changed the link again. I give up

8:30 and still no railfan landon livestream...
@ Andy24 « Fri 7:11:22 pm »
did Landon delay his livestream again?

For the next few hours until 4pm EST, can rewind to 4:01am to watch it go by Elkart IN: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2VLzhHPl6wU

happy bday to Osomething, getting chinese food tonight.
@ ~Z~ « Fri 9:59:26 am »
the CP holiday train is due to pass through Lake Odessa tonight, so Landon will need to delay the live stream until 12/3.
@ Jetlink « Fri 9:37:28 am »
I believe in years passed it may have traveled through lake O? Can anyone confirm that ?
@ Jetlink « Fri 9:36:52 am »
One of these years I will actually make the effort to go see the lit up Holiday train.

i would say people that take vacation days to chase trains, who don’t use all of their vacation time riding bikes earlier in the year.
@ J T « Fri 8:27:17 am »
Who are all these people out in the middle of the night chasing this train? Don’t they have jobs? :lol:
@ ~Z~ « Fri 6:33:06 am »
