    Edward Neff commented on the group Revo Trikers's wall:
    what happens when you loosen up the Velcro straps inside the wing some or what happens when you tighten them for some reason it wants to turn right

      Abid Farooqui You die. Well you can. Loosening up velcro straps on your wing will allow a higher cruise speed but very low pitch stability with bar stuck into your gut and tons of bar pressure to push it out

      Edward Neff Thank you for the reply One more question Maybe Why would I have right turn

      Abid Farooqui Because your right wing is most likely producing less lift than your left wing. Take the batten cords at the trailing edge and tighten them on the right wing and loosen the tension a bit in the left wing. You can try this mid-span on the wing (battens 3, 4, 5, 6 on top surface) and do a test flight. Be ready to change it back if it does not work.

      Abid Farooqui No problem. Technically speaking I am assuming no one has messed with those internal webbing velcro straps. If they have then that could indeed cause a turn. Basically in your wing, a looser velcro strap allows the airfoil lower surface to blow down which is like having a dual cambered airfoil moving its Center of Pressure (CP) so that that side of the wing speeds up or worse causes a pitching moment (common in airplane wings but not cool in trike wings). The velcro straps should be completely engaged to each other (top with down one). In fact in your wing they are supposed to be about 1/4" over engaged or 1/4" should be beyond beyond the engaged portion on each one on either side. Basically these things control your airfoil specially at lower angles of attack and keep Center of Pressure location in check. End users should not mess with it unless they learn what this ca do in an airfoil

    some or what happens when you tighten them

    Hi all. I've got an XT 912 that's not been pampered, and after 1056 hours the sail has finally failed a bettsometer test. I'm casting around for a modern replacement wing, and the Sport 12.5 looks appealing. I'm curious about others' perspectives on this wing - handling, longevity of the sail, and how it performs on an 80 hp base. I'm not interested in a manufacturers' flame war, but reasoned comparisons of the wing and how it compares with other manufacturers' offerings on an 80 hp base would be much, much appreciated, especially if anyone has tried an XT/Reflex combination. Cheers!

    Anyone know of a company that makes fitted travel or light weight body and engine covers for the Revo?
  • Lee Schmitt

    page 22 of the reflex series wing manual states
    "8. Flight Limitations
    Operations and limitation for the Reflex series wing on the Light Sport Aircraft such as the Revo
    is available in the POH manual. The wing performance placard bearing test flight information
    and operating limits is located on the wing’s left cross tubes. Special care should be taken to
    note the operating limitations, which are clearly stated on the flight operation placard"
    does anyone have this placard on their Revo? can you take a picture of it? my wing does not have it.

    Larry/Abid,
    Over the years I have had numerous engine outs. Mainly bad fuel in Africa. With slower wings, always found a place to land. No I know engine reliability has improved dramatically but slow flight performance and short landings always a safety factor when flying. So much focus on speed nowadays whic has its uses but how do Revos perform on short landings

    Safety Directive (SD-1007) released. Please check

    Mark my words each one of you, one day, I will have a "Revo"...I don't know when that might be, but it will happen. I have seen many pictures and videos of this trike and all I gotta say "me like" LOL.

    Rotax has released a mandatory bulletin for 912 and 914 series engines:
    SB-912-058-UL

    Due to a deviation in the hardening process, certain washers may have excessive hardness. This deviation could cause the washer to crack and could cause loosening of the flywheel, ignition failure or engine damage. Note that washers part number 944072 delivered as spare parts are not affected.
    The bulletin covers specific inspection and replacement instructions for full compliance.
