    The last line says it all Paul. Agree with everything you say

    "Lean forward to flare" that's the one that took me a while to remember. I can still feel my instructor pushing my shoulders forward and shouting at me. I think the physical act of moving your butt back a bit and sitting up straight also wakes you ...

    This is a really interesting project and I can't wait to see the finished article. If you want to test the a-frame (downtubes) try putting weight in the cockpit and jacking the whole lot from the bottom corners of the a-frame. Provided the centre of ...

    Don't forget Joe that most of these downtubes nowadays are connected at the hangblock and need to be able to move at the control bar junction. If this is one of those wings then there doesn't need to be any control inputs through the training bars ...

    Yes that repairman surely needs to up his game, any yob would know that you should see 1.5 screw threads showing through the nut! Tut tut. Look on the bright side Dave, at least it's shiny.

    could that security cable be causing the bar to go forward???? looks pretty tight and if the trike swings tru after takeoff then it will tighten further. how easy is it to pull the bar in to your chest during flight?

    looking at the washout rod Gilles, do you think there may be a bit too much twist in the wing tip? im not familiar with this wing so maybe im wrong. Any more pics of the wing from the side monty?

    Hey Monty, why not pat a few pics of the wing and hang block so we can have a look. Get a model to pose with it and we might even reply with ideas! If you had a video of a flight it might be even better to make a call on it

    "wexford air" commented on Rizwan Bukhari's Blog "Active Hang Block".
    Think about it a little Rizwan, stand in front of the wing when it's level and look at the angle the a-frame makes with the wing. Now tilt the wing all the way to one side and look at the angle again (for each a-frame upright) then think about what ...

    I've looked at another pic on Kathryns report and it shows pretty well the leading edge tube broken in bending and sticking out through the sail material. Looks like impact damage from the left wing hitting the water. From what I can see as well it ...

    Andy, starting from the top pics 2 and 4. You mean the front of the keel? Then yes you are correct but if you follow the wing leading edge out to where the side wires connect you will see what I'm talking about. It is difficult to be certain though ...

    The raven is the name on the actual wing part.
    The trike is called the Hybred "R", but mine got a cool respray and Quantum pants and a set of hydraulic brakes. Best climb I have got is 800ft/min sustained! It could go over 1000ft/min for brief bursts. Best sink rate at idle is 300ft/min and it cruises between 50 and 60 mph, its nice at 55mph but could do 80 mph if needed. it has a vne of 100mph, is really light in pitch and light in roll at higher airspeeds.

    I checked out the Medway Raven site. I didn't see the 'Raven' model but what I did saw impressed me. What's you rate of climb and airspeed? That 503 is a sturdy and reliable little Rotax with an incredible power to weight ratio. Joe

    Pardon me Sir!...leave it to a Texan to confuse the issue...I'm Irish too! How long have you been flying Trikes? Your pictures of the Irish countryside from 800 AGL are really fascinating. It sure is pretty country you fly over. I visited there in Southern Ireland for 5 weeks in 1980 and have fond memories of my stay...except for the weather. Nobody told me that January and February is not the best time to visit Ireland. I guess I should have checked my travel guide first. Joe

    Hi Wexford. The pylon has a a simple but sturdy pin that unscrews and it folds down just like a Pegasus Quantum. The Astra is built here in the USA in Bloomfield Indiana by and Irishman named Allistair Wilson who is also a very accomplished trike flyer. He used to work for Pegasus as their representative until Pegasus pulled the plug on the American market in 2001. He took the original Pegasus design and reworked it for the USA market by adding 2 inches in width and 2 inches in length and made the aircraft heavier by 20 lbs beefing up the parts he deemed that needed it. I'm a big man and I appreciate the extra room. It flies wonderfully and I am just thrilled to have her.
    I posted a reply to your picture with the fields that you identified yesterday but it seems to gone the way of the cyber-fairy. Anyway, I asked about where fly in the UK and what kind of trike your have. All The Best, Joe
