  1. Excellent idea. It does greatly increase the focus. So now I will point to & reread this message to ensure it is good-quite a few correspondents on many sites would do well to check their post for clarity before posting.
  2. I inadvertently put my above questions on the Microlight area. 'Ducky' answered there so I will post it here also:-- "G'day everyone, Since my last post I have now got 13 engine hours up and 8 hours flying time. I have explored the stall and flap use and all is good. At almost all up weight the clean stall came in at 44 kts, 10 degres flap 43 kts, 20 degrees flap 42 kts. The stall is very gentle and tends to want to "unstall itself" as soon as it occurs. The ailerons are very very responsive, so until you get used to it you are all over the place, I'm used to it now. My oil temp is still sitting at the top side of the green band, so a bit more tweaking of the cowl openings req'd and the cht is in the green band at 325 degrees F. So far I have done about a dozen landings and at the moment I need to really fly it on and pin it with forward stick as soon it touches. The landing gear shock absorbsion works well.
  3. Thank You, Blueadventures, I have now put the thread on Aero pup. Russty.
  4. Hi, Can anyone tell me the approx. lift off speed of a supa pup, say with 80kg pilot, 20kg fuel, 4cyl 4 stroke KFM motor, on a 10 degree still winters morning, say altitude 1000ft ASL. Assuming tail lifted & elevators level. I intend doing some ground runs soon & this is good info to have. I believe that stall speed is around 38 knots?? Is it a hard stall in this plane?

  6. Is he still up there?? Or did he land uphill version 2?? Would love to know.
  7. Hi Steve, Congrats on your certificate. If you are still in the Gympie area you may wish to call me on 5447 7716 & see my aircraft.
  8. Hi Folks, Newbie here, but I did fly a Stolaero a bit in the early eighties. Anyone out there who came to the fly-ins at Widgee, near Gympie? I am attaching a pic but have no idea whether it will come up as my 'motif' on left of screen. Cheers, Russell.
