No, no, Who Kelvin, not Kelvin Who.

Lord Kelvin, he was an Englishman who invented heat back in the days of yore. Remember those pictures they showed you back in school (well, maybe charcoal drawings on a rock but....) about the 'ice age'? Well it was Lord Kelvin and heat that cured us of that. Of course now his 'heat' is a bit much and it has gone a little too far but such is the nature of things. I am not worried though, I expect Lord Freeze the Balls off of a Brass Monkey to come along any day now and spiff this whole thing up.

Kelvin who?

Ducted fans can be cool but the really slick set-up is a full- blown, axial gas turbine (read: jet engine) in model plane size. They start around 4 lbs. thrust and work their way up. They start and run exactly like the full sized versions; I would have said 'real' jet engines but these ARE real jet engines. They start on compressed air, then begin burning kerosene. They even smell like a jet engine. Usually used in model airplanes with nacelles so the engine is not visible, and they can be very, very fast: 200+ MPH, which is fast for something 3' long that you cannot see for very long in the sky.

An example of one running in a test bed:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KPtsLPMTVnY

I read his questions clearly & 100% understood he was asking about Horizons, When he asked " How hard is it, and how did you remove/replace the factory grips and retain heating?" You can understand he would not be asking about the grips if he was talking about risers !. Don't be so fast on the old trigger there cowboy  :banana

Helibars has been making lots of products long before they introduced the Horizons... Sometimes it isn't clear.  And for sure, if the actual product name isn't listed at some point, nobody will ever find threads relating to it with search.  There is a method to my madness.... per perhaps I am just crazy  :o   Or both!

Have you ever stayed at a hotel with the heater/ac below the window and when it comes on it blows the curtains out and all the hot/cold air goes behind the curtains and not much comes into the room? I've got to put my brief case in the window to hold the curtains back from blocking the airflow.   I'd like to choke the you know what out of the idiot that came up with that design scheme.

Yes, Gary, I know.....First World Problems indeed.
