the real problem.
One General Manager, without knowing about all this, to maximize
profits, had his chief engineer doing the maintenance on the
machines, told me he didn’t want any new prop designs, because
his job was to make maximum profit, use what they had. He was
furious at the thought of making perfect props, rocking the boat.
The smart executive, is smarter, knows there is more new business,
with new better designs, that he’s losing, that he’ll get
overwhelmed if he’s the last guy to catch on. Those
who don’t catch on, Wrong Tip and Blade Shape,
will be easily
seen by their Customers,
who know better, know the right SHAPE, and LOADING, will fall Behind,
Lose Out. Progress marches on, those who don’t learn, don’t
Rust at Whirlwind caught on instantly, just got that 74 constant
speed batch order, serious money! Formula 1 #50, Gary Davis, Stephen
Pearse, his Doctorate in Math partner, designed their prop with
Andy’s program, proved skinny tip props are best in takeoff and
climb, when prop designers always mistakenly thought
a wide tip was needed
for a combination prop, takeoff, and climb. That
is disproved on computer analysis,
was also disproved by a kid in1946, 48, you’ll see, and

have a copy, without thinking about it. That works, people snatch
them up. They sell like popcorn! That’s just fine because we
did it all so we could all finally understand – about a Half
Century Late. It’s really our “Give Back”, for
the Great Fun of a Life at the Leading Edge! Understand, the World
can be, and was our “Sandbox”, to play, create. Burt
Rutan was the other Model Plane winner, who kept on growing. I did
mine in the all up Aerospace Industry, made that my “Sandbox”,
to create in. It’s been great fun, life at the leading edge,
going to be a benchmark, maybe a Historic Book, the
last fundamental hole in our Grasp of Flight and Aerodynamics,
that took from1865, to the 2007 publication. It’s Historic for
multiple reasons, 83 Years work by 7 real Historic Giants.
Historic, an Exact BGT Solution in 1948. Historic, the Greatest
Failure to Understand oversight in Flight and Aerodynamics, 1948 to
2003, the Wright’s 100th
Anniversary, when we had it, 55 years. The 7 Historic Technical
Giants will all finally get the credit they deserved, posthumously.

on the final cross checked computer analysis. Incredible, but exact
and true. I won’t tell you how close the fuel came out in that
computer analysis, or you’d think this was all “baloney”.
It was incredible, and in that case Incredible Luck to be as close
as it came out. We could be lucky, because we had it nailed. I did

and vise versa, you pick that monster up, lean it over a tad, catch
it, fly it out of the gantry. I laugh, people think technical guys

the Chief Engineer what we had to do, then went and did it, and a lot
