How does flying open without doors effect cruising speed and fuel consumption?


Photo window - Flying open ?

Greetings from Scandinavia - I fly a Czhech built bird with curved side windows. I'd like to do some photography and have marked for a little photo window, I have to cut out. Only, I'm not quite sure how the double curved polycarbonate window will react tothis.

Tak for din mail Claus... Jeg må flyve til Tåsinge en dag vejret er til det. Vil gerne se din løsning. Har også tænkt på at konstruerer halvdører i alu. Tror egentligt det er lættere end vinduet.

Der er fri indflyvning i begge ender. Banen er øst vest orienteret. El ledninger 100 m nord for og langs med banen.

Hej Claus.. Jeg har en Stol 701 produceret af Roland i Tyskland. Jeg har længe tænkt over, hvordan jeg kunne lave et foto vindue. Jeg vil gerne se hvordan du har lavet dit.

Jeg har 140 m landing strip her hvor jeg bor. Mellem Langå og Ulstrup ved Randers. Du er velkommen til at kigge forbi, hvis du er ude at flyve.

HI.... so, when would you like to come out to Ghana to set up a wind turbine....??? We have often wondered if it would be worthwhile.... we already have two 1.2KVA inverters (24v) but currently charge from gensets.... solar is very unpredictable in the tropics (cloud cover and dust). wind is a little more reliable... but what is the threshold wind speed?
