    Hey Larry thanks for the invite to the pre sun and fun event but I am not leaving Michigan until the 24th. Last I spoke to Jeff I was going to bring a REVO or two down.

    Thanks for the prompt reply.
    I had a ST3 prior to the SST and only had it (dutch roll) on me once in over 400 hrs and that took quite a lot of effort to make it do that compared to the current wing.
    I have a more healthy respect now for this wing than previously, I like the wing more than the ST3 for it's rigity and turbulence handling qualitys and overall effort in getting more speed out of it.
    Hopefully i will get back to the states one day (been there 4 times since 2003) and catch up with you guys there and test out the revo and the 11 wing, problem is i am betting i will love it and want one.
    Would just be interesting to see the differences between them.
    Unfortunatley i cant see myself getting there soon as my contract finishes here offshore in a couple of months and i will join the ranks of the unemployed.
    Once again thanks for the reply and the explanation.

    Hi Alf,thanks for the compliments. yes read my post carefully, I mention tracking and rolling right as you ask about. When I fly a wing like this I know I need to pus the bar out to coordinate the turn. By you turning left and then switching to right you are doing a "dutch roll" there are plenty of wings that can be dutch rolled out of normal operating limitations. There are also many wings that track like they are on rails. Rolling one way and then the other really isn't something you want to do with the SST with out first pushing forward, "setting the turn" then cranking it back the other way. With that in mind you may find the wing to be much, much better. If you want a wing that you don't have to worry about that with, get a Streak III or the cruise.

    Hi Larry,

    I think you did a fair and honest evaluation considering you are in competition with these two manufacturers.
    Frankly after seeing your videos and reading all the info on the Revo you are well and truly leading the market stakes for the best trike out there, it has very high standards of build quality from what i can see and it impresses sure me so well done to yourself, Abid and the rest of your team.

    On a different tangent

    Did you at all have the SST side slip on you when doing a quick change of direction as in 60 deg turn to the left then straight into a right hand turn.
    I had an instance when doing some S turns I found it side slipping quite easily and found it a very uncomfortable situation with the attitude it took sliding one direction while pointing in another and the airspeed indicator reading zero for a short time as the airflow passed across the pitot instead of down it.
    Be interested to hear some thoughts on it from you.

    Hey Larry it looks like Air creation, or whoever owns that Tanarg on the front page of trike pilot today liked your lighting configuration idea with the Revo!!

    Larry, Pretty awesome aerobatic show. I bet then its a HAZZARD wing built by Walter Mauri. Heard the name enough to know.
    That pilot definitely go SKILLLLLLS.
    I got your message and spoke with Abid. Thanks. I guess my logbook has disappeared. I've posted a new video-amphibious triking in florida.

    Victor Agadzi Said Wednesday 27th January 2010 05:05am:..Yep, Cruising at 55 all the time and easily exceeding vne. We changed the thrust line and and implemented the offset on the engine, as well as placed the Apollo vertical stabilizers all after getting rid of the HAZARD 15. The MP2 was tested with the changes and flew perfectly. Who knows, I believe the HAZZARD would have flown very well if we had made these changes and then flown the HAZZARD. I anticipate no need for changing the thrust line by going with the smaller MP wing. This wing will pretty much do it all for me with regards to average stall and average VNE with a slightly longer take off roll which currently is not a problem since the trike planes extremely well at high speed. I will go easy on my test flights initially hopping, then skipping then leaping ...
    then enjoying
