    Yes I see what happened ... now I failed to scan properly before assuming the sky was clear .. Easy to be myopic as new posts is usually the entry to the pattern here. The bottom fitting is worse than the top one . But proves that the mechanically ...

    So if this is the other end of the down tube item ? ...then why not show them both?? I think Monty read this right ...now we wait patiently for the next wind up... Motives are now highly questionable and i reverse any thanks I offered .. My ...

    Yae but that is about spreading load and having things bend rather than break in a different place. If our leading edges did not bend ,our crossbars and our down tubes would fail much sooner.

    This one was picked up and posted ,thanks Paul ,now perhaps a few people will not drill holes in load bearing structures but I feel its just a hint of what is out there . Ultralights can be safe and cheap to use and trikes look simple . Its no ...

    This is priceless..... the process of installing bars is so that control can be dual ...so this was all about giving a passenger control....Of a compromised machine ....no wonder there so much red tape ...yet here it is Manslaughter ? Darwin award ...

    Looks ..pretty stupid ...but it would depend on what sleeving is inside the airfoil down tube. its easy enough to make a profile clamp from stainless steel and have better support than the flimsy ally there ....and if its no flimsy then is is ...

    this sounds like all the issues of adapting a hangie to a light trike .. bar back (lower wires) 100 mm or move seat forward and re angle dangle.(can be complicated) watch out for anhederal change when/if you do the control wire change which can be ...

    Roger..you voice exactly what real training should entail (in the ideal world we are heading for)as is the case with GA (where i was "trained " after many hours in trikes ) If there were any questions i had there was always some instructor who was ...

    I had a look at some historical investigations and this one stands out as the most complete ...but lacks a real conclusion,but clearly there was a problem that to my knowledge has not been specified . did steaks have a design flaw? or was training ...

    Paul raises some points which have bothered me some . And some reminders about age if the guy in the back is strong can the guy in front overpower him? reverse pilot input from a young panicked guy may be overwhelming .

    Yes, on that note there is a video that i cant find where a guy takes off and maintains bank and stall then side-slips in . does anybody know the video I'm referring to ? I agree that this crash was likely to be pilot error and agree with what ...
