    Mikael, Test power settings and Throttle settings separate. To verify it’s not the engine, simply pull he power back and trim to high speed and see if the turn is there or not. A trim tab on the wheel spat WORKS WONDERS!!! For high speed turns.

    @ Mikael, It's tight isn't it? By the time you try to adjust the offset AND keep the engine as far forward as you can, there's not a lot of room left for the main engine mount to reach for the engine's hard mounting points. I studied the issue ...

    I sorted my problems with Aeros2/ProfiTL by angling the engine 7 degrees forward and 1.8 degree clockwise (seen from above). Before it was totally scaring to give full throttle at take-off. With these changes I notice no problem at all. 1) On ...

    ...as a winter project, I finally will work on setting the prop centerline sideways on my Aeros/BMW combo. As lateral movement (by using washers) is a much more easier way to manage, I will try it that way... Any experiences e.g. how much offset is ...

    Andy Hughes I have a Pegasus Quantum 912 and my oil temp won't go above 165 deg F even on climb out. I fly in 45 deg weather and below fall and winter. I have taped off the oil cooler but I think I need an external thermostat. Anyone use one or have a make and and part number?

      wexford air drop p&m an email Andy, they got them for the newer models and would be an easy enough retrofit. They changed something recently as far as I know to increase the operating temperature of the thermostat as well. best to give them a shout before you look around

      Neil Scoble P&M use Thermostasis. Try there website. http://oilthermostats.com/aircraft/ P&M put out a SB to replace the element but when I spoke to the guys at Thermostsis they advised against changing it.

      Andy Hughes I am going to try blocking off some of the coolant rad. No point in a thermostat because the oil cooler fins are already covered so it doesn't do anything to remove heat.

    monty stone I wish I could goad Ole into' serial izing one of his trike adventures in Mexico on this and/or the light side, many newer trike pilots would enjoy them, as well as we that got his 'trilogy'. Ole, consider yourself 'goaded'. I know you used to do it on trike r us, and it was enjoyable reading.

      Therry PRADINES Sure I will wait for warmer conditions. OK for the trade anyway. If you come along on my island this winter you are welcome for a ride on my FIB ,on back seat to start with (except Xmass and begining january,when I will be in France). Please note : maximum weight for passenger is 90 kg .

      Tom Currier Did you post them under "Float Flyers"? In response to that I purchased a Cygnet with Pontoons rather than a FIB for a few reasons. First, stability in waves. The Cygnet does handle waves much better and at all angles. Second, the FIB can flip much easier in a cross wind if you're not careful. The Cygnet is much more forgiving. The FIB is more agile in the air as it's more streamilined which is a tradeoff from a pontoon trike but too me, the takeoff, landing, and water taxi characteristics of the Cygnet were more important. Some FIBS have a wheel setup making them amphibs but the Cygnet excels in this area too.

      Therry PRADINES Txs for your answer,Tom ; yes I posted on the float group ( unless I made a mistake ??) Anyhow, ,browsing and contributing in trikepilot social needs serious study to understand who it works !!! For exemple, can you tell me where I should click to find the message to which you answered ????? For your comments regarding the Gygnet , I would be interested to fly one some day to make my own judgment. For the FIB, you are right: stability is not its best quality in case of cross wind ....mine is equipped wth wheels but I stopped to use its amphibian capacities because hadling of wheels ( up / down / block/unblock) is a source of mistakes .....I use the wheels to go into/ou water,from the beach where I rig/unrig the wing comfortably .

      Tom Currier Sounds like a good bartering opportunity. Come up to NH and take a ride in my Cygnet and trade that for a ride in your FIB down in Martinique. It's cold as all get out here in NH with snow on the way tonight so you might want to hold off until spring, summer or fall.

    Yeah Larry, its been up several times since the last failed attempt! The trike, I mean! My failed attempt was only due to failure to monitor what my rear end was doing while my front end was focused on 'getting it up',

    You know you are getting old when you can’t always get it up. Of course I am referring to Monty’s roll over video on takeoff. Nope he didn’t get it up that time. Luckily after he repaired his trike he was able to get it up on the next ...
