Does anyone know him? Trying to find his number. He made his own Seven. . . . completely. It is blue and Alu. Pretty cool car. I think he worked at that aeronautic place that made the plane that circumnavagated the earth solar powered(?).

Hey Rob!
I hadn't looked at this forum for quite a while.
One of the guys at the cruise night said you were looking for me.
Did you sell the HPC?
Give me a call 805-527-6089

DaveG: Welcome to our dirty little website!! Tell us about your car: motor, trans, built from a plan (Locost?), how long to build, how long on the road, SB100, etc??

Do you like performance events? Three guys from this site attended a Corvair Club autocross @ Camarillo airport on sunday.

We also join the Shelby Club for their trackdays @ Streets of Willow in Sept. Please join us for a Maliblat or track time. 7s are even more fun with other 7s!! 8)

Hi Dave,
This isn't 7's related, but do you know Paul Trist or Mike Reagan from Aerovironment? I use to fly full scale and model sailplanes with them a few years ago. I have not flown much lately, but I see Mike occassionally at the sailport in Techachapi. Just curious!

Yes, I know both Paul and Mike.
Paul is in charge of training the Army guys on our Small UAV's.
Mike owns his own composites business and still makes parts for us.

I didn't know that you were into model airplanes. I used to fly a ton of planes before I moved here. Still have all my equipment including a monster aerobatic machine with a Saito 4 stroke 25cc engine.

I even dabbed in UAV's making cruise controls (with pitot tubes and an onboard computer) and navigational systems... Quite fun. I should pick it up again some day.

Hi Magnus,

Take a look at these pics - one of our model tow planes we use to get our scale sailplanes airborne (has a 215cc, 5 cylinder motor!):

Here's a nice 1/3 scale Dimona:

Here's a bunch more models up to 1/2 scale(scroll down to see the photos):

Nice planes.

The five cylinder looks like the OS-engine. Their Pegasus engine (if it is still sold) is a flat four that sounds suspiciously like an old beetle.

Back in Sweden, where everything is smaller, we usually gave up at quarter scale. Half scale is BIG.
