    Riz, Always run my lights because I feel it is overall safer for visibility. Everything counts. I run the MGL V6 Audio out jack directly to the GoPro audio in. I use a splitter with 2 cameras so I get the audio on both gopros to sync.

    Interesting question, Rizwan. I notice in certificated airplane POHs they tell you to turn the lights on before starting the engine. Clearly it is a signal for those on the ground to beware of the spinning knives. In the air, during the day, they ...

    Paul, Nice video, I have two questions for you. 1) I am curious why do you have your position lights on? I have seen other trike pilots with the position lights on during a day flight....and I am wondering what is the benefit to you as the ...

    Lucian, Thanks for your perspective on the front tube terminology. More details at http://www.trikepilot.com/members/profile/273/blog-view/blog_980.html And yes Lucian's book is another great resource every pilot should read. It was one of many ...

    Our standard in the USA is Front Tube but many still call it a compression strut. Old habits die hard....

    "Paul Hamilton" commented on Paul Hamilton's Blog "Trike Terminology Myths, Legends and Development of Terms and Definitions".
    Lucian, We do have a standard actually here in the USA. The compression strut is discussed above. It turns out the first serious trike manual from USUA (USA organization) Mark Philips from 1997 called it a front tube making the most sense. Your ...

    Lucian yes it is amazing how many are not trained properly. Since you mentioned it, we generally do not call the front tube a "compression strut" here in the states because it is in tension in flight. It could actually be called the "tension tube" ...

    As much as we like to find fault for these tragic events in the equipment, manufacturers, sales, high performance the list goes on....... This is usually not the case. The sad reality is that in most cases it is pilot error in one form or another. ...

    This is a great discussion thanks Bryan. It amazes me that pilots are being thought wrong. As Larry said, it is the horizon that counts. It is clearly said throughout the FAA Weight-Shift Control Aircraft Flying Handbook starting on page 6-5. Why ...

    Paul would you happen to know if anyone is selling thous battery operated bar mitts? I ordered the ones from north wing but unfortunatly there supplier has disapeared. I have electric leather gloves but they dont work that well. I have severe raynaulds in my hands from chain saw carving for 20 years and i would like to fly more in the winter. Cant find battery heated bar mits anywhere?

    Andy,
    I use a whole bunch of stuff but the workhorse basic camera is a Nikon D40x. Any camera will do. Nikon Cannon etc... but the lens is a Sigma 10-20mm which costs way more than the basic camera and lens.

    Wow Paul...Getting a good work out there huh? 7 hours a day? Are you beat up or is the air pretty good there? Have you flown the topless/strutted Airborne yet? Was good seeing and visiting with you again at SNF.
