..get evil; model say a Gossamer Condor or whatever these pedal powered Channel crossing planes were called, _truthfully_, including the pedal power to power the sim computer at 300 - 450W or whatever it was. ;-)
that sounds certainly like a lot of fun - I remember an expo some time ago where you were allowed to (try to) power a bulb, fan, radio or even TV by using merely pedal power ...
Nobody managed to get the TV working, though :-)
YES, it would propably be very interesting to meet a confused pigeon at FL350 :-)
lol. :) I consider the confused pigeon to be the logo for the software.. ;)
..make it sweaty. ;-)
...at that altitude that sounds a bit nasty, or does it have anti-icing equipment onboard ? ;-)
...of course Erik's penguin could possibly be able to deal with the icing part, on the other hand how do get it up to FL350 - probably only by dropping it from something like FL1000 ? :-)
At least we wouldn't have to care for the (lack of) lift anymore, I think a penguin's body would probably make for a good illustration of the lifted wing body concept ;-)
