I notice the Rival S specs are up on the Revo website. It also has a patent pending on a new trim system, Its great to see such vibrant competition in the manufacturing side of our sport, forcing innovation. It will be interesting to see how this one wo

    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 ;-)

    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

    Glade, just a small correction to your post, anhedral means wings angled down from the lateral axis. Dihedral is up

    Doug, do you find any differences in the handling of the Bionix with more or less billow in the trailing edge?

    Loved the shadow on the snow, there wouldn't be too many places in the world you could produce that effect. Awesome

    So Larry, could you tell us about your new trim system. Your website talks about variable anhedral, I remember in my training theory I learned how dihedral contributes to aircraft stability because as one wing drops it starts to fly more efficiently ...

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?
