Back from Oshkosh. Fun trip watching Larry and Wes Fly their trikes and a few others of course. The landings most the time were with the wind or with Direct Crosswinds. Made for faster landing speeds and longer take off runs but still it was amazingly

    Carb Ice. This may not apply to the way the Rotax is set up but in other forms of aircraft there is a point where carb heat actually can cause carb ice. I know that sounds strange but if you look at the charts when carb ice is most dangerous it ...

    I was watching this in person on the ground, i can say that video does not give the steep turns justice. Fun day in Rochelle, IL.

Made for faster landing speeds and longer take off runs but still it was amazingly short take off runs. That 6 blade prop on Larry's Revolt is sure nice sounding and smooth.

    Some GPS have a glide ratio function. Practicing with this and determining best glide ratio speed for your trike and wing and knowing that speed is very important. Not sure if the Manufactures provide that speed in a P.O.H. like a normal GA ...

    Great area to fly. What actual speed ranges are you capable of with that wing. What speeds do you like to fly at for the major part of your flights?

    That is very sad news to hear about Reb and his student. I do hope we can learn what happened. Accidents happen for different reasons. I flew 7 hours with Reb and he was very safety conscious. He knew his equipment well and its limitations. ...

    Excellent job on your trike and flying. Any idea what the length you needed to take off in?

    Putting an excessively large screen in front of the pilot is a good way needing big wheel pants. I know one model of trike that places the passenger in a howling gale, and in a one country a not uncommon mod has been to increase the screen size. The ...

    Its very simple. The wheel pant fins act as pseudo vertical stabs. They are needed when one has significant side area in front of center of pressure. Revolt or other nacked trikes hardly have any. It is also needed more when one goes faster. Revolt ...

    The short answer is the carriage is not supposed to help the wing track straight. The wing, if designed properly will do that all on its own. The carriage is either yaw stabile or it's not. To find this out in layman's terms take a side profile ...

    I too think the Revolt would fly just fine without any finned wheel pants. The benefits finned wheel pants provide (tracking stability, and reduced yaw twitchiness in particular) is proportional to the amount of vertical surface area on the chariot ...

    I'm guessing that the Revolt flies fine without finned wheel fairings. I have a trike with no pod and no finned wheel fairings. My wing is an Aeros Profi TL. My top speed is 65mph, maybe 70 if I pull way in. The wing will go faster, but my 60hp HKS ...
