    Tractor configuration may better in terms of efficiency but they are hopeless when in comes to forward visibility. Never going back to tractors again, Pushers all the way!

    Another hypnotic video by Henry. I would want to keep on flying and forget to return back!

    I have long been using Rocol Belt Dressing spray on both sides. Reduces slip, prevents cracking, protects from UV, etc. Use sparingly or it will be messy.

    Thanks Larry! Having an EO at 150 feet is a frightening thought for someone like me who fly from a short field. So far has been lucky. In the near future I need to replace Rotax 377 and a 447. Polini Thor 250 DUAL SPARK and Hirth F23 are in my ...

    Hirth say that their engines can not be compared to old two stroke engines. Huge range from 17hp to 110 hp Fuel injection. "Factory recommended TBO is rated at 1000 hours at 75 % power". and 1200 hours on their engines below 6,000 max rpm Here is ...

      Bryan Tuffnell My feelings on this are well known - I don't like to see the nosewheel contact the ground before the wing stops flying. If the wheels are in contact with the ground while the aircraft is still 'flying', you're vulnerable to a catalogue of problems. A common issue is a crosswind gust which causes the trike to yaw while the wheels are on the ground, resisting that yaw. You can't roll a trike up if it's on mains only. It should either be an aircraft, flying, or a land vehicle controlled by the wheels, rolling - allowing both at the same time provides the opportunity for conflict in a top heavy, narrow wheelbase machine, which always ends in a less tidy landing than letting the energy bleed away before the nosewheel touches and sometimes and in some circumstances ends in tears. The only argument for letting the wheels down while the wing is flying is that you're out of space in front of you.
