Rather a prop on a fast landing than risking a tip stall dont know

She was well behaved. Showed no signs of getting upset. Even on the final turn for the landing - the worst possible place for a tip wing. Steady as a rock.

Maiden today. Flat calm. After the usual checks and double checks ( yes...trying to put it off). Took it out, opened the throttle and she gently lifted off.

Only one click of down elevator was needed. Low rate ailerons and high rate elevators used.

The CG that was worrying me ? A complete non event, it seems ok slightly further forward than book. And I’m going to keep it there. Very little down elevator on inverted. Roll rate good- nice and axial. Right thrust just right.

Landing was a little wind and my worrying about tip stall. This resulted in a broken wooden prop and the loss of one tailwheel spring. That’s it.

There is no wing rock at all at low speed. She’s a beauty heart.

P.S. Bert, the new UC worked a treat. Needs the idle setting a little lower for a slower approach.

It could have been a lot worse. £9 I can live with that. Bmfa as the police, fine. They know more about this than any faceless Whitehall Minion.

Free online test every 3 years.....hardly an onerous task.

No minimum age for pilot....won’t deter young upcoming talent

At least Mr Shapps seems to have got the message and the lobbying. He had to be seen to do something with pressure from airlines and airports.

Depends on the weight, I use a 33cc petrol. My Stampe comes in about 8kg. There is a lot - and I mean a lot of information on the Stampe thread, if you can plough through it cool

Build moves on. Mick- the pilot approves of his cockpit, although , I haven’t the heart to tell him he will soon lose his legs below the knees



Thread: Infinity 90 Build
20/10/2019 18:19:20

Flew the infinity today. No aileron or rudder retrim needed. Only 8-9 clicks of up trim. This was dialled out by 3 turns of the clevises each side on the elevator push rods.

I’m not a war film fan either, but The Great Escape was an old favourite that I looked forward to every Christmas, and also anything with Donald Sutherland in it - there was one particular one where he drove a tank but I can’t remember the name.....

Was it the Dirty Dozen?

Thread: Precedent Stampe 1/4 Scale

For hub covers I used a couple of tins of beerbeerbeer

  1. By the cheapest beer you can find, it will be of very thin aluminium. It might also taste awful
  2. Cut the bottom of the tin away. The dome inside will face outward and the flange can be screwed into the plastic wheel hub.
  3. Recover from hangover.

Do these pilots have the one routine and do it at every show ? Or would they fly whatever they felt? Great video...
