skeptic36 Posted February 14, 2009 Share Posted February 14, 2009 Hi all, Something I have been vaguely interested in for a while is the difference in flying a trike compared to a 3 axis aircraft. I have 23 hrs in a trike and zip in 3 axis, I enjoy the trike, it is simple to fly, in good conditions you can take your hands off to take a pic or just relax and the thing just flys itself. It can be a little uncomfortable in rough air, but as I do it for fun I mostly leave it in the hangar when it is too bad. The perception I have of three axis (based on discussion here as that is the only experience I have) is that you have to be driving a 3 axis all the time, knowing the aircrafts position compared to the horizon, making sure the angle is right for landing so the weight is distributed on the undercarriage correctly etc. (I could be barking up the wrong tree, I'm sure some of you will let me know:big_grin:) There are the performance capabilities of the inclosed cockpit types which would be good if you want to be somewhere else, but I kinda like being out there with the birds and while the kids are still home :thumb_up:there isn't much opportunity for 2 people to be going too far away Regards Bill Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
