Tim sent the Webinar report from yesterday. We want to thank everyone for giving us such a high rating. And even though we only had 173 attendees we feel pretty good about the total attendance. Especially considering we were up against the 3rd presidential debate. Maybe that's why we did have such good attendance. Everyone looking for an escape. We will post the link to the webinar When it becomes available.
We are getting ready for doing our new VLOG (Video blog). It will be called the "Hangar 7 Video blog" We will be doing a weekly Video update with everything that is happening not only on the EMG-6 but with the going's on at Rainbow Aviation as well.
October 19, 2016One of the suggestions that came out of the recent webinar was to check out this German company, Geiger Engineering. I spent the afternoon kind of perusing their products and checking out what they been doing. Google translate wasn't able to help with a lot of the webpages but we were able to get the gist of what they were working with. They have both a 12, 16, and 25 kW continuous operation motors all of which look like they are very viable for the EMG-6.
We will make contact with them and gather some more information about pricing and find out whether or not they're interested in providing (lending) us with a motor/system for testing on the EMG-6.
In the interim you may be interested in checking out their website yourself. Click here.
