Guest Juliette Lima Posted July 10, 2008 Share Posted July 10, 2008 Hi readers of Drifter vrs Thruster thread, Elsewhere in the Thruster thread , the question of Attitude flying in a Drifter has been posed. For what it is worth, I rarely look at the ASI other than to occasionly confirm airspeeds determined by attitude. I use an aerial mounted on the pod and have determined (coupled with appropriate power settings)climb at 48 kts, cruise at 63 kts, (912 engine), slow cruise at 50 kts., descent on base/final 48 kts., best glide engine out, and three point stall on for landing. Airpeeds are nailed instantly and trimmed even before the ASI catches up....particularly useful in power off short finals. Incidently, nothing beats the magnificent views from the front of a DRIFTER.
