    Saw this interesting demonstration of drag force at the end of an advertisement.
    (We RV types buy from Alan and this thread IS NOT about his company or products)

    The interesting part starts at 6:21


    Enjoy!

    [Maybe someday @SixPapaCharlie can teach me how to cut down a YT to just the relevant bits :))

    1. Go to video on Youtube.
    2. Run the video to the point where the interesting stuff happens.
    3. Right-click on video
    4. Select, "Copy video URL at Current time"

    Doesn't PoA strip off the start time offset when embedding?

    Thanks for that - I had no idea the effect was so pronounced.

    I tried to do a link to the correct time but the Board software outsmarted me. Here I have added a space to make it not a valid link for illustrative purposes.

    Should looks like htt ps://youtu.be/mX74jP3bKw0?t=381
    But it doesn't work.

    You can post it as a link instead of directly pasting the URL, but that makes you go to youtube to watch and you don't get the picture. Snot a big deal

    Very useful interesting. I saw a similar video in A&P school demonstrating how drag goes as the square of the air speed. A lot of my classmates weren’t impressed because the video didn’t have modern production values.
