I hate wind tunnels Can't Post

They cost too much and are too far away from home.

Wind tunnels are ruining me.

I love and hate them. Unimpressed

I second that Unimpressed

Had my first tunnel trip last week (yes, we have to go to another country to get to a wind tunnel!) I'm completely addicted. With the sucky exchange rate of R15 to the pound, I might have to start robbing banks in order to sustain my habit UnimpressedPirate

Worse: They cost too much and are not far from home at all, which makes it MUCH too easy to give into the addiction. Unsure LET'S FLY!! Wink

I'm planning to go tonight. 36 hours . . . that's a long time. Is there a patch for this??? (Not that I would want it; I'm just wondering! Wink)

Good thing; I need someone to fly with in there, and I would prefer it to be someone who understands the "problem!" Smile You and I at least live close to our tunnels, though. I can't imagine being far away from one. That would be nasty--cold sweats and such, I'm sure.

Ah yes, a kindred spirit who know the plight of living with the addiction. Knowing the trials of never being able to stray too far from the DZ.

Now, THAT, right there, that's a beautiful Valentine's Day sentiment. Cards like that would sell in a heartbeat.

I don't know. I think a patch that allowed to to fly your body in various attitudes without a requirement for a tunnel or aircraft would be extremely cool.

I'll get started on it right away. Tongue

That's okay, so am I! Smile This is sort of in a different league, though. It's almost more of a sympathy-card kind of thing. . . .

EXCELLENT! I'm glad someone on here is making good use of their time. Do you have a wind tunnel problem, too?

Oh, man--how long has it been??! Cold turkey, I just can't imagine. I think the guys from my tunnel would probably send the authorities to my home to check on me if I didn't show up for a week or two.

Ummm, isn't all that efficiency working against your better interests? 80 minutes. That's a rich fantasy in the making, right there.

You must go by "hooknswoop" or "skycat" here in the U.S. I've DEFINITELY heard this before. (And it works.)
