V-twin
A V-twin engine, also called a V2 engine, is a two-cylinder internal combustion engine where the cylinders are arranged in a V configuration. Although widely associated with motorcycles, V-twin engines are also produced for the power equipment industry and are often found in riding lawnmowers, small tractors and electric generators.Contents1 History 2 Configurations2.1 Crankshaft

Number (ISBN) is a unique[a][b] numeric commercial book identifier. Publishers purchase ISBNs from an affiliate of the International ISBN Agency.[1] An ISBN is assigned to each edition and variation (except reprintings) of a book. For example, an e-book, a paperback and a hardcover edition of the same book would each have a different ISBN. The ISBN is 13 digits long if assigned on or after 1 January 2007, and 10 digits long if assigned before 2007

Flying Wing
A flying wing is a tailless fixed-wing aircraft that has no definite fuselage. The crew, payload, fuel, and equipment are typically housed inside the main wing structure, although a flying wing may have various small protuberances such as pods, nacelles, blisters, booms, or vertical stabilizers.[1] Similar aircraft designs that are not – strictly speaking – flying wings, are sometimes referred to as such

Brake Specific Fuel Consumption
Brake specific fuel consumption
Brake specific fuel consumption
(BSFC) is a measure of the fuel efficiency of any prime mover that burns fuel and produces rotational, or shaft, power. It is typically used for comparing the efficiency of internal combustion engines with a shaft output. It is the rate of fuel consumption divided by the power produced. It may also be thought of as power-specific fuel consumption, for this reason

They were not successful.Contents1 Development 2 Specifications (H.P.22) 3 References3.1 Notes 3.2 BibliographyDevelopment[edit] With prizes worth a total of £2,150, the Lympne light aircraft competition of October 1923 attracted 28 entries including the Avro 558, de Havilland Humming Bird and Gloster Gannet. Handley Page provided three contestants,[1] at that time without a company type letter but bearing the competition numbers 23, 25 and 26. These were designed by W.H Sayers, technical editor of The Aeroplane and owed much to a glider that he, along with Frank Courtney and Maurice Wright had designed and built for the glider competition held at Itford Hill the previous year.

Short Cockle
The Short S.1 Cockle was a single-seat sport monoplane flying boat, with a novel monocoque duralumin hull. It was underpowered and so did not leave the water easily, but it proved that watertight and corrosion-resistant hulls could be built from metal.Contents1 Development 2 Specifications (Cherub) 3 See also 4 References4.1 Notes 4.2 BibliographyDevelopment[edit] From about 1921, Oswald Short had been thinking about the construction of seaplane floats and flying boat hulls made from metal, specifically duralumin, rather than the traditional wood. The latter always suffered from water retention and did not last well in the tropics. He assembled a team, including C. P. T. Liscomb who had extensive experience with that alloy to look into the hydrodynamics and corrosion characteristics of such hulls, and by 1924 was looking out for an opportunity to apply their results

BICh-3
The BICh-3 (Russian: БИЧ-3) was a tail-less research aircraft designed and built in the USSR
USSR
from 1926.Contents1 Development 2 Specifications (BICh-3) 3 See also 4 References 5 External linksDevelopment[edit] After the relative success of Cheranovsky's first tail-less gliders, the BICh-1 and BICh-2, he continued the tail-less theme with the BICh-3. The BICh-3 was built of wood with a parabolic wing having a straight trailing edge. A central nacelle, containing cockpit and engine, was faired into a large and powerful fin and rudder. The undercarriage consisted of a trousered central mono-wheel with wing-tip skids. The BICh-3 was flown in Moscow in 1926. Tests found it to be unstable, so consequently the handling was improved, after minor modifications, enough for the aircraft to be re-assessed as safe to fly.

Gloster Gannet
The Gloster Gannet was a single-seat single-engined light aircraft built by the Gloucestershire Aircraft Company Limited of Cheltenham, United Kingdom, to compete in the 1923 Lympne Trials. Engine development problems prevented it from taking part.Contents1 Development 2 Specifications (Blackburne powered) 3 Notes 4 ReferencesDevelopment[edit] In 1923 the Royal Aero Club (RAeC) organised what became known as the Lympne light aircraft trials after the airfield where they were based, though the RAeC referred to the competing aircraft as motor-gliders. The intention was to develop economical private aviation, so the engine size was limited to 750 cc with immediate consequences for aircraft size and weight. Various sponsors provided attractive prizes, particularly the total of £1500 jointly from the Duke of Sutherland and the Daily Mail. The event took place from 8–13 October 1923. The Gannet was Gloster's intended entry
