At last a flying shot from a very nice session last last night:

and coming in for landing

Mounting a 6 mm wedge between undercarriage and fuselage did the trick. It brings the axle about 30mm forward. Now she is not nosing over any more and tracking better on the ground too.

Regards, Lucas

After ending 2nd in a landingcompetion (power off in downwind, fly base and final and land on the line) I wanted to give a little present to "Gentle Curves". A customized wooden prop and a propeller nut from justengines:

Gentle Curves is very easy to side slip, which makes landings that much more controlled.

Cheers, Lucas
