Brian commented on Trent at MyGeekShow's blog post Split Elevon Air Brake Testing on Flying Wing
"Cool mod, had a stryker about 4 years ago that had a similar setup.  Got the idea from a video online, which I can no longer find.  It was cool, but used for airbrakes.  Would do from 80mph to 0 in perfect control very quickly."

"Wait a moment, we're supposed to get emails when blogs are pending? I've never got one, I get notices when I've participated in discussion, and groups but not for blogs. No wonder I'm always too late!

@TC is there something you can check? I'll…"

"@Chris - I think you missed my point. The structure may be the same, but the items posted in forum are not the same as posts in the blog. One hunts down technical Q&A's into the forum, but the informative and new and entertaining stuff is in the…"

"All this "news worthy" talk stems from regulating what gets on the main page. Isn't there a way to publish a "blog" that skips all the whoop-la of the front page? Wouldn't that negate a lot confusion?
