I forgot to mention that Tesla is building a Supercharger station directly across from the main gate at MCAS Yuma. It appears to be nearly complete. I think these guys are getting it right and would be my choice for an EV.


Interesting, Jeff. Did you think to grab a photo? There's already a Tesla Supercharger in Yuma at the Hilton Garden Inn, south of the highway; I used it, twice, driving to and from El Centro in February. I wonder why Tesla thought another one so close by was needed, given that much of the country is not as yet served by even one Supercharger. My guess is that they've got a fleet deal with a buyer somewhere nearby; they did something similar in Las Vegas when the CEO of Zappos ordered 100 Model S cars.

Jo, have you found any airflow/prop efficiency problems using the guards?

Jim, now you're getting technical ;-)
How would I even determine those?

I did not get a photo Steve, but it is located on the back/east side of an existing Chevron Gas Station & Convenience Store at 3919 South Avenue 3 E. Here is a GoogleMap link:

Why, you just need to do your own test piloting, Jo: remove the prop guards and take copious notes on your kneeboard while flying the thing without 'em...

Way at the back, behind the strip mall? Or just along the back wall of the Chevron?

Well I guess if you haven't noticed anything weird, then the guards aren't causing a problem. JR did get me the deluxe case so , as Zim pointed out, that would be useless if I put them on.. I'm thinking the hand launch/recovery technique will be the route I go. Having gourmet south of the border cuisine at Taco Bueno, then heading to HQ to dig in.

Mine is just a Pelican case I bought and custom fit to the Phantom, so it's only semi-deluxe.

I ran into a guy at the Rockies game last night (they beat the Rangers, 12-1, BTW) who owns a small chain of restaurants down your way, Hacienda Ranch I think he said. Heard of them?

Along the back wall of the Chevron. In a weird way, it made sense to me that they co-located it with a traditional gas station/convenience store.

In 2011, on a grey, rainy day in Everett, WA, Boeing handed over the first operational 787 Dreamliner to All Nippon Airways. I think the look on this young lady's face pretty much summed up the "hopes and dreams" for the 787 program at that time.

We get so wrapped up in the sound and fury of the aircraft themselves, that we often forget that there are real blood, sweat and tears involved in the industry as well...

UK airline Easyjet are developing their own drones to allow engineers to carry out engineering inspections of difficult to reach areas of aircraft.

What a great portrait Jay!

BTW, I meant to, but haven't, commented on Jan Arie's foray into portraiture…….loved them! Hands down favorite is the little guy headed out the door. The composition, lighting, DOF, the whole package just warms my heart!

Yeah; what Jim said!
They climb fast and fall slower.... They come down faster if you put some sideways motion in there. I find myself having to do a falling-leaf type manouver if I want it to come down quickly, and in the same general bit of sky.
