    DIY Electronic Nerd Project Ideas for Aviation

    More mechanical than electrical, but a little robot that crawls along the underside cleaning up oil streaks unattended while airplane sits in hangar. Like a roomba, except would have to have sucker feet or some way to hold on.

    Apple blows chunks

    runup area. WWYD?

    The snarky part of me wants to ask if it is a Cirrus flight school? Seriously, maybe a friendly visit to the flight school(s) to leverage the whole primacy of learning thing. Then when others see people taking advantage of the runup space they will have an ah-ha moment and follow suite.

    Grumman AA-1x Pre Buy Houston Tx
