    Lucian Bartosik commented on Wesley Frey's Video.
    Larry, I did not mention pylon racing because that is a race and its obvious that the faster wing, best prop and biggest engine is going to win, with the assumption that the top pilots are all going to be very close in skill level, so that is mute ...

    Well I wish it were that way Doug but all too often pilots entering competitions think they are better than they really are and sometimes make poor decisions and drop in too hard or make a turn to sharp too close to the ground etc. which can result ...

    This is a fun competition and when I saw this for the first time a number of years ago, I borrowed someone's trike to enter, with a streak wing and 2 stroke engine and on my first ever attempt I smashed the fastest time of the day and their previous ...

    Brian, Larry and others: I don't often comment on what I read here but when I do, I do it because I see wrong or misleading information being handed out for others to read. I comment on what has been written by the person, not what they may have ...

    Hi Paul, the correct terminology for that part is in fact a compression strut because it has all to do with what it does in landing, not in the air. I believe in all other English speaking countries that have a trike industry, it is called the ...

    Lucian Bartosik commented on Jared Grosvenor's Video.
    Jared, you did a great job of getting yourself on the ground safely, especially there during those last few seconds. However, as has already been stated, what about all those big fields that were below you? Too many times a pilot will fixate on a ...

    Lucian Bartosik commented on Frank Dempsey's picture.
    yes it does. So add the weight of the wing and the trike and engine then what is left over is what you can carry in the trike. So that means clothing you wear, equipment you are carrying and of course the weight of your fuel.

    Lucian Bartosik commented on Jim Davidson's Video.
    As for drifting to the side of the runway centre line, I have taught that way back into the late nineties, if you are flying out of a filed that has no where else to land in an engine out on take off. That is, if there are no open spaces to put it ...

    Lucian Bartosik commented on Jim Davidson's Video.
    The pilot made several mistakes here, resulting in damage and possible injury. Of course number one was not back taxiing to use all the available runway. Number two was not landing straight ahead into that nice field in front of him the moment he ...

    Dear Lucian,

    I would love to buy two books.

    I live in Switzerland.

    Please let me know the cost and how to pay for them.

    Thanks a lot for bringing to wisdom to the land of the trikers.

    It will help a lot!

    May I ask that you sign both books?

    One is for me, Juan Amestoy and the other is for a good friend of mine who will soon start his career in trikes, Daniele Cereghetti.

    Thanks in advance!

    Juan
