    Wesley, I do not put any safety chord onto any video camera (unless perhaps it could go into the prop) because if the camera fell off than it would be flapping and possibly destroy part of the wing and create a bigger problem. I would rather loos a ...

    Wesley Frey Oh. I read the rest of the posts and the string is for tie downs. Maybe it could be tucked inside.

    Good editing and sound and great view. I enjoyed the whole thing with my greatgrandson. I want to fly those mountains one day. Looking forward to our 8th cross country to OSH this year. Our 7th in a Revo. Just wondering what the flapping chord ...

    I have about 6 hours in the back seat in this new Airborne M2-Sport with new XRS wing with the owner Warren at the stage of landings. Have been through all the maneuvers including spirals, stalls and now landings. The stall is not quite as abrupt as ...

    Wexford, Not sure what string you are talking about, but if it is the one hanging out where the lower strut goes into the wing this is the tie down hookup. I keep these out since in high winds it is easy to get to and tie down the wing. It is ...

    Douglas  Lee
    Douglas Lee Looking for information on where to buy a foot throttle assembly that will be easily adaptable to the Tukan square tube nose wheel design. Or a simple home made foot throttle. The design in the Kemmeries Tukan plans requires quite a bit of cutting and welding which I would like to avoid if there is something off the shelf I can purchase and bolt on or a simple fab and bolt solution. Any advice appreciated.

    One question, what's the string for? Is it to show the side-slip?

    Great video Paul, Thanks for taking us on the flight with you. That cover shot is excellent and could be a magazine cover. Best I've seen in a long time

    Frank, I would define high winds for me to be anywhere from 10MPH for cross wind bumpy on the ground in large wing/light wing loading/ultralight to 50 MPH winds aloft smooth at altitude in a small wing/high wing loading trike such as the Revo. Two ...

    Wowzer!! Tom, there is some heavy reading and math in there. I've put the page on favourite and think I'll have to re-visit rather a few times.

    Thanks guys for the great comments. It was fantastic taking Oisin up for a spin. Even better again that he loved it. After the two boys basically grounding me for the past 7 years it is good to know that I will have a passenger now. Can't wait to ...

    Paul, how do you define high winds? What do you think the limits are for the average trike (not 103's)?

    Lovely video. This is a part of my training I have yet to undergo to better understand the interaction of winds and thermals in mountainous terrains. I understand some of the theory of the sun on one side warming causing up currents whilst the ...

    Tom, I fly allot in the mountains in high winds. In this case, time of year (winter), time of day (morning) there was not that much convection (thermals) so the sunny side of shady side did not effect the air that much. Additionally it was generally ...

    Nice, Paul. I was expected to see a few jolts as you crossed the peaks but looked like you had smooth air. What happens on a sunny side slope with winds coming in from the sunny side? I would imagine you get some pretty strong updrafts then ...
