    I see you have the roll trim installed on the black beast Larry. It would be a Godsend on a long trip like you guys are on now.

    "Bill Pilgrim" commented on Paul Hamilton's Blog "912s simple cooling enhancements".
    Paul, the following is a cut and paste of what you wrote : The problem with running higher concentrations of water, less than 50/50 is that the boiling point goes up. That IS wrong, water boils at a lower temperature than any good radiator coolant, ...

    Yes Abid, I understand your motive, and while the rest of your advice is worth bottling, the part about the view is b.s and therefore the pilots you are trying to get through to may devalue the good parts of your advice because of it

    Abid, it's not about the view, it's about the sensation of speed that you don't get a little higher up. The safety factor, is how well you know the area you fly over. Personally, I only have two areas where I enjoy fast and low, one is, any beach ( ...

    Yes but for the detectives amongst us, it is an easy step to check out Evolution trikes Facebook page, where you can find the vid and watch it on your i device

    Looks like you should have recommended a larger wing for this guy, it would keep him drier ;-)

    "Bill Pilgrim" commented on Rizwan Bukhari's Blog "Non fatal trike crash".
    Firstly it is great to hear the pilot is ok. Secondly, what a breath of fresh air, to have such a detailed explanation straight from the pilot so soon after the accident. So often we are all left wondering what went wrong and how we can avoid a ...

    On an awesomeness scale of one to ten with one being hardly awesome and ten being super awesome, I would give that black beast a twelve . Imagine how high it could go with the i.s sport upgrade ;-)

    "Bill Pilgrim" commented on Bryan Tuffnell's Blog "Thoughts on Spiral Dives".
    Larry, I'm sure not knowing the correct input is the problem sometimes, but I believe that more often it is the fact that the right input is opposite to our normal inputs (ie push out to slow down/slow decent) and while we may KNOW what to do, when ...

    Bryan, you say " In practise, roll may be aided by pulling in. " . I guess you mean roll control, i.e getting out of a tightening spiral may be aided by pulling the bar in ?

    I currently use an iPad in a knee dock with no glare problems, so I imagine the above setup would work well under a tinted windscreen, especially with the latest update making it easier to adjust brightness for battery conservation

About

I am a dairy farmer in eastern Victoria Australia
I have a Pegasus Quantum 15 with a grey top 582 Rotax and Q2 wing, it has 365hrs on it of which I have done about 30 and lovin it.
I fly out of my farm at Bruthen and I'm hoping you people will start paying enough for your dairy products so that I can afford to move up to a four stroke soon ;-)

    Recent engine outs that everyone needs to know about cause Fuel priming Bulb. Engine out One 50ft above the
    ground on take off 5 sec to put it back on the strip Engine Out two 500ft above the ground on a short strip. A little bit of grit sand in The exit valve of bulb But The Engine Outs were two weeks apart so it was intermittent and A hard to find Problem and as you fly a Peg Fuel Priming bulbs do Fail . So i,m Putting a Y before The Bulb and after so Fuel gets through . Regards ray

    Bill,
    I can do that but I may need some help once I drive onto my custom trailer. The problem is the angle of the trailer remains angled with the angle of the ramp. Now once I drive up onto the trailer, and cut the engine, the trike tends to roll backward and in the process, the cantilevered front landing gear can catch the edge of the wheel aligner on the trailer. This can cause the front landing gear to lift up forward as the trike moves backward. The fuselage would quickly drop hitting the bottom against the metal trailer. NOT GOOD. I may come to that once I figure out how to stop myself from rolling backward. Easiest way is for a second pair of hands. My brakes are not too effective since the mechanism in the wheels kept rusting and freezing up. I externalized the brake system by having the same system pull 2 rods against the tires on their surface. Result a brake system not powerful enough. I keep the trike on the trailer at all times since it makes I can move it wherever I want at anytime by linking it up to my truck. I will probably work on perfecting a system allowing me to drive up the ramp this summer. Any suggestions are welcome..

    Hi Tom,
    Wombats are not quite a meter long and half a meter high and built like a giant house brick. Here is a pic http://www.thomasschwenke.de/wp-content/uploads/wombat_front.jpg

    Hi Bill
    It was great to meet with you and Susan on the Queens birthday week end, I picked up a comment from Ray Sparks and saw that you were a friend.
    I have just come back today from West Sale Doing a bit of flying with Alf, Was a bit Hairy yesterday but we got a few hours in. I was thinking of you today with the view that when we get some good weather for an extended trip Alf and I should visit you guys.
    Cheers Mark

    Hi
    Does that mean the runway has been levelled. What size hanger are you building?
