I always thought 1.2L engines in the USA were just used as starter motors.
I would rather strap a turbine jet engine to my car roof
Jet engines (Allison) are also used for gas compression. Being near a jet engine running at 10,000+ RPM that is moving very large amounts of compressed natural gas at very close to critical pressure / critical temperature is an interesting experience. Pondering all the possible failures boggles the mind.
Any modern airliner use it's gas turbine APU to start to start the main engines.Allan
I just received a purchase of a Mini 2560 board, as well as a portable programmer from @CrossRoads. I am very pleased with the quality of the boards! they were packaged very nicely, and arrived very quickly. I very much look forward to using them! I would post pictures, but they are right on Robert's website. though once they are in use, i may take some pictures of my project.~Travis
I just got a cheap 3D printer kitThey are cheap enough now that I have almost had my money's worth of fun just building it.The next trick is to get a RAMPS board and see if my own simple software works as well as Repetier (The RAMPS board is so I don't screw up the software that came with the printer)....R
