    Thanks Leo and Abid! I think so Leo. Let me look at that area closer on my next trip to the hanger and I'll look the space over better. Without a BRS canister (currently no BRS is installed) under the rear seat, you have a boatload of room for ...

    Great Video Gary! I really like the fit and finish, very well done. Can the area behind the passengers head and left and right of the mast be used for storage?

    As I have said, if you can't keep the trike skimming on the ground and you are getting "launched" then its my opinion you shouldn't be flying in that much wind and you are getting behind the plane. No gust should make you climb higher than 12-16" ...

    Gary, Do not feel bad. Most of the pilots and instructors land faster in bumpy air. This is typical. I have commended on one of my blogs that describes this well established technique "how to land a trike". In fact, here is a story about why I teach ...

    My landings look and feel just like Gary's and have except the one on a single surface 103 I was test flying for someone when I got caught out in a gust front.

    Ted if you landed and then took off again just forget it ever touched in the first place and keep flaring. If you are 30 feet in the air after touch down you must have either been on the throttle or touching down at cruise speed. Just keep flying ...

    watched the clip again didn't see the rear wheel lift? with the nose of the wing down there is pretty good pressure pressing the wing to the ground. agree with you on the flying in those conditions but who hasn't played race the gust front and ...

    Hi ayes, for sure it's a REVO thing. The Revo is absolutely not designed to touch down bar neutral which will be around 85 MPH. I think I saw a back wheel come off the ground during this landing. Keep doing these in Xwinds and off field and sooner ...

    So trikes have a not safe to land speed limit? Larry? Is this a Revo thing? I have had to plant a trike at 60+ a few times 75 being the fastest three pointer, never felt any lack of control over the trike. Just glad to be safe on the ground.

    Interesting point about the trike getting hit by gusts. Wonder if the pulseR is more susceptible to this than other trikes. Gary is in a great position to be able to see this with the Quik trike and same wing, have you ever noticed this Gary?

    Hi Henry,
    There's two prefered routes to fly from Apalachicola Municipal Airport over to St. Georges Island. The best way is to follow the bridges over to East Point first then along the next bridge over to St. Georges Island. While not perfect, you'll at least have someplace to land in the event of an engine-out.

    I took a chance and flew over the 2 mile span of open bay water from Apalachicola Municipal to St. Vincent Island and then over a shot inlet to St. Georges Island. Once I followed the bridges over the first time it became my route to the islands.

    Love you videos. Keep em' comming!

    Hi Mark,
    I'm using a Canon EOS 5D MK II DSLR camera with a 14mm f2.8 lens. Details in the end credits.
    Take care,

    Hi Everyone,

    I've posted a couple photos of the camera mount. The design is simple. I used a 6" piece of hang glider leading edge tubing to make a compression sleeve that chips around the trike leading edge. I then pop rivited a 3/4" piece of custom angle iron (steel) to the sleeve. I padded the connection with two layers of innertube rubber (pond liner). That assembly is then hose clamped (gentley) to the leading edge. There's a little flext to it which as it turns out, helps to absorb shock on grass strips. Once in the air it is very smooth. Look in my photos for a couple photos. I'll take better photos of the mount when I take it off next.

    I started with the Design Collection CS using my Photoshop/Illustrator upgrade path because I had a separate upgrade path with Premiere and PremierPro. However, when I purchased CS3, I went with the Production Bundle. I've only been caving twice, once when I was a boy scout on the way the Philmont when I was twelve (Carlsbad Caverns), and the other at Inner Space when I was living down in Austin. I did some cave diving when getting my Master Divers certification but I don't think that counts. ;-) I've played a guitar since I was eight and played in some regionally known bands during my teens down in my hometown of Baton Rouge, but ended up on the other side of the mic when I worked for Showco. I now only play for my own enjoyment having gotten rid of all my axes except my shaded top 1975 D-28. Maybe we'll get to trade licks sometime down the road (sky). Thanks for the invite, I'll definitely try to make it up to KY once I get my own trike!

    Hi Michael, I missed the rest of you posting. Man, we have a lot in common. I upgraded to the Adobe CS4 Master Collection last year. Love it! So much to learn however. My wife and I are the managing partners in our tourist attraction in KY, Diamond Caverns (www.diamondcaverns.com). I also have a one-man-band small graphic design & photography company to keep me busy in the off season and evenings (Graphix Berdeaux, Inc.). Be sure to look me up if you're in KY any time soon. I'll glady take you up in my trike to play my favorite game... sping the plannet! Gary

    Gary,
    You're welcome. I too am a retired production geek (did you run a Chyron?). I started out as an electronics engineer in Dallas, designing, building, and running a remote 24 track facility (Showco), then worked my way up to an A1 on live broadcast events - mainly sports. That's where I learned to run cameras, tape ops, and switchers. When the road got too much, I "retired" in 1993 to an in-house corporate facility (Colo Spgs, of all places :-o) using a computer-controlled Matrox system. Eventually I transferred to Adobe's first Premiere product and have been using it, Photoshop and Illustrator every since. I'm currently on CS3 because I don't see the value proposition for CS4 yet. Interestingly enough, I passed on CS2 as well... seems I like to skip generations. ;-) I recently sent an email to Chuck Goodrum up in Calhoun to see what is involved in getting trained, since he is closest to me. While I haven't flown in a trike yet, I realized a while back that my dream of flying was much closer to a biplane than a 172. ;-) I think I'm going to fall in love with trikes. Eventually, I would like to travel to different locale's, pulling the trike behind my motorhome (kind of like John Olson)... we'll see.

    Have a great trip to KY... wish I could join you! :-D
