Wheel tests.

Thought I’d post this up for the mechanic nerds. - I didn’t understand half it - and I’m waiting for Blakey to put it into basic language for me. -but it’s interesting (though I guess unsuprising) to see how badly Aerospokes rate…

well, there’s your first problem…

i don’t quiet understand why they state that to accelerate a wheel, 40% of requirements are for rotational energy, and 60% for translational. won’t it depend on the particular wheel’s ‘I’ ?

Rose aerospoke is not the arrospok we all know and love
