Hey all in trike land. Any input on this combination? A 12.5 mt. Bautek Pico S on a clean 582 trike 50% two up time flying from 2000 asl. Any comments?

    The first Aeros Still 17's that same in here all had the down tube mounted to the hang block. I didn't think anything different because all the Wizards that were here were the same way. All hard to get the hang bolt in when mounting the wing to the ...

    Airborne has mounted the down tubes like this for years... and others. Nothing new here.

    Hey...I have a video of myself during a tip stall situation. I was doing a test flight/proof of flight video for a customer and I just happened to capture all the goodness! If someone can walk me through how to post on this site I will try.

      Larry Mednick I have flown and owned that combination. It will carry weight like a 16 m wing. Very very good climb from the pico S on the 582

      Abid Farooqui Pico S is a good wing. The only thing I saw with them was when slowing down to land, it had slight tip stall like thing happening when wingtips were on but we probably did not have the washout set/adjusted completely right on it

    I have to agree with A.F. Those Q2 wings want to go only straight and you would have to be real stupid to spiral that wing at ANY time!

    A lot of low water flyers at the PNW fly-in this year. I had the sense to fly high over unfamiliar rough terrain when I went in.

    Bradley Waters Hey, I like this Trike Pilot site. It even gets all the way up here to Canada. Lot of members on this list and lots are newbies and/or students. Some are even up here in Canada! These students look at this site and get their heads full of flying recommendations where they should be going to their instructors. Maybe this is why the industry is having problems? I know personally diffusing some bad info.

    Bradley Waters Hi all. There was a talk about hang brackets here a few days ago. How can I read all of that? There was a Sabre trike up here in Canada that had the mast come apart inflight about 15 years ago. The wing was found farther down the line with very little damage. Dont know if it was the hangbracket or top of mast that came apart

    Bradley Waters Hey just want to say that Larry at REVO trikes down there in the sunny south is a good guy! He sent me some shims for this odd ball Orca wing at no charge...not even postage! Now all I have to do is figure out where to put them...

About

You know, the 3 or 4 days that I had known Cory Summach, I thought I was getting to be his friend. In the days after the incident, I met his Aunt and Uncle and they told me that Cory talked highly of me. I met his wife also and she seemed genuine and sincere. I could not tell her what really happened to Cory as the truth would not bring him back.

Cory was always on his phone and this should have been an indicator to me that his attention was not on his training. I know now that he was always talking to his wife, his employer and others and not concentrating on what he was supposed to be doing and that was learning to fly. I blame myself for not realizing this condition and thus either putting a stop to it or changing my syllabus to allow for it.

The last phone call he received was from his employer and this call was only minuets before Cory Summach tried to solo his aircraft without the proper training, the required documents, or the required equipment on board.

I thought I was pretty smart and had all my bases covered. Sorry that I let you down Cory.
