    A few more thoughts and responses to recent posts. I agree with Paul when he says "The sad reality is that in most cases it is pilot error in one form or another." In fact I have been quoted as saying that pilot error is responsible for 99.99% of ...

    Jeff, can you tell me the name of the song? The music really enhanced an already spectacular video!

    Lindsay, I have to say I really liked your ideas about insurance not being about dollars or paperwork but self-responsibility. While I don't believe in eliminating risk - which would mean staying on the ground; understanding risk and selecting a ...

    Well said Paul, you know that in one perspective, not that any death is acceptable but he was doing what he loved and most likely accepted all the risk involved. It is not such tragedy for and older gentleman as opposed to a younger one . I would ...

    I dont' trailer mine around anymore, but it was a total pain putting the wing on the roof for sure. 10 ft tounge on that trailer has to put it WAY back there in your mirror. heh.

    Hi John, actually the trailer weight is about 255lbs. I should have been more clearer, Harbor Freight sells 2 trailers, a 1195lb capacity trailer and a 1720lb capacity trailer which is a little more expensive. The one I have always used is the ...

    Craig Dingwall Guys, Interested to hear where you Stateside guys get your Trike covers from both HD travel type or more importantly lightweight hanger/cross country types including wing covers (for cross country trips) if anyone uses them? Are you guys buying local made covers?

    I surely hope that commercial interests/legal entities/and backside covering don't distort what could be important information regarding the tragedy of Reb's incident . On another possibly unrelated tangent ,I am always aware of our control ...

    I use a swimstep on my rowboat to haul my wagon. It weighs less than 1720lb; more than 1600lb less. It cost me under $100US. I have hauled my trike to tropical México with this arrangement many times and once to Guatemala. No complaints!

    One other thing, I would NOT install those silver brackets around the trailer used for wood side rails and instead put in Eyelet Bolts so you can have nice places for tie down straps.

    Hello Robert, yes I used to carry the wing on my car for many years. But now I welded a 10 foot piece of 2 inch square steel to extend the tongue of my trailer and I can lay the wing on the trailer. It's a long trailer now but I like it. One day I ...

    A student wanted a trailer for their trike and we put this together. I've used the same 1720lb Harbor Freight trailer for over 12 years to tow my trike along with various of other student trikes many thousands of miles and it's still going strong. ...

    jeff trike commented on jeff trike's Video.
    Thanks Larry. I always try to milk the glide for as long as possible before setting down. Frank, I had to get a special mount for the case. I'll show you at Angel Fire. Roger, I fly between 50 and 60 mph. Usually 60 when it is kinda tricky near ...

    Larry; thanks to your training all my landings are completely no power. I've had some sketchy approaches where earlier I would have powered out but with your technique I've followed through and always nail the landing. That said, I'm always ready ...

    I have seen it both ways. For sure if your 912 is idling at 2000 rpm it is actually still Producing thrust at 60 MPH. But on something like a REVOLT with a 6 blade prop idling at 1300 the prop is dragging. So it can work both ways. Practicing ...

    I'm with you Tom. I've heard many comments pro turning the engine off and I have been told that engine off gives a better glide as there is less drag. Seems counterintuitive to me, but, I've never tried. I remember seeing our club president with a ...

    I did some engine out practice last night and my glide is taking me much further than expected. How much is the glide affected by engine at idle vs. shut down? Although I've done a number of idle glides to see how far I can effectively go from ...

    The power/pitch relationship can be approached from many directions. If you're wanting a sustained, level, coordinated turn you could say that additional thrust (not power, to be precise) is needed to maintain speed, or bank angle, or lift, or drag, ...

    Some GPS have a glide ratio function. Practicing with this and determining best glide ratio speed for your trike and wing and knowing that speed is very important. Not sure if the Manufactures provide that speed in a P.O.H. like a normal GA ...
