    Wesley, I do not put any safety chord onto any video camera (unless perhaps it could go into the prop) because if the camera fell off than it would be flapping and possibly destroy part of the wing and create a bigger problem. I would rather loos a ...

    Good editing and sound and great view. I enjoyed the whole thing with my greatgrandson. I want to fly those mountains one day. Looking forward to our 8th cross country to OSH this year. Our 7th in a Revo. Just wondering what the flapping chord ...

    I have about 6 hours in the back seat in this new Airborne M2-Sport with new XRS wing with the owner Warren at the stage of landings. Have been through all the maneuvers including spirals, stalls and now landings. The stall is not quite as abrupt as ...

    Wexford, Not sure what string you are talking about, but if it is the one hanging out where the lower strut goes into the wing this is the tie down hookup. I keep these out since in high winds it is easy to get to and tie down the wing. It is ...

    One question, what's the string for? Is it to show the side-slip?

    Great video Paul, Thanks for taking us on the flight with you. That cover shot is excellent and could be a magazine cover. Best I've seen in a long time

    Frank, I would define high winds for me to be anywhere from 10MPH for cross wind bumpy on the ground in large wing/light wing loading/ultralight to 50 MPH winds aloft smooth at altitude in a small wing/high wing loading trike such as the Revo. Two ...

    Wowzer!! Tom, there is some heavy reading and math in there. I've put the page on favourite and think I'll have to re-visit rather a few times.

    Paul, how do you define high winds? What do you think the limits are for the average trike (not 103's)?

    Lovely video. This is a part of my training I have yet to undergo to better understand the interaction of winds and thermals in mountainous terrains. I understand some of the theory of the sun on one side warming causing up currents whilst the ...

    Paul Hamilton commented on Paul Hamilton's Video.
    Tom, I fly allot in the mountains in high winds. In this case, time of year (winter), time of day (morning) there was not that much convection (thermals) so the sunny side of shady side did not effect the air that much. Additionally it was generally ...

    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.
