That might be a worthy addition to DV ;).

Happy Holidays, Joel and everyone!

I think I work more during the Holidays. I concentrate on other ideas to move the company forward.

I have been thinking about the diffuser for a while and implementation into the THM400 and the current Noble configuration.

You can see the size of this diffuser, even though we haven't finished modeling the center fins.

I hope you're all having a happy Christmas. The diffuser is the area that we have to work on. We've started with a simple upsloped trailing edge, but we should try a proper diffuser. I didn't know exactly how much rise angle to use, so the initial design was really conservative. Since our diffuser remains at a set ride height and orientation, we should be able to get a relatively optimal design in terms of rise angle - assuming we can do enough testing.
