Re: Fun level going up :)

Many thanks Jim, the camera is attached with a gopro stickermount, but it has a safety wire connected to the tie-down fitting in case the mount fails (i have lost a camera in the past :(

Fuel cap replacement

Dear All
Any recommendations for finding a replacement fuel cap for a standard Tipsy Tank - preferably non-venting.
Assistance would be appreciated.

Regards

Re: Parachute

Ouch, but i think that is more due to pilot error rather than the aircraft. I am not aware of any inherent handling problems of the Tipsy? Obviously cof is important, especially in spin recovery?

Re: Parachute

I stop around 1000 to 1200 feet agl and climb back up to start afresh. I appreciate the danger of low level and feel no compunction to go there. Once or twice ended up at 600 agl and was glad for the buffer. It is very easy to make mistakes.

Re: Fun level going up :)

Hi Jim

Thanks for the comments, you should get into the air with your Nipper

The mount is inflexible so it must be the propwash - i will check the wing camera to see if the "tramping" is something in the airframe - thanks for noticing,

regards

Re: Parachute

Dear Jim
thank you for the reply, i am thinking of getting as chute that fits into the "turtle deck" above the seat and behind my shoulders and neck.
I have seen some glider pilots using that in gliders they are too tall to fit in otherwise.

Re: Spinning

Dear Neil, Thank you for the response. I shall try it gently and report back. I am slowly developing the negative g side - with "straight" rolls and then i will try more extended inverted flight. So far no splutter or other trouble from the motor. What is the nature of the work you did to ...
