  1. Clear as mud! Take it to extreme with rear cg you could be at position to have full forward stick and still not be able to prevent stall. Obviously this would be outside cg limits.
  2. Stall stick position would change would it not with a different cg? If I load passengers in rear seat it would mean I need less rearward stick movement to stalling AofA
  3. I did have an aircraft with vibrations which seemed to be carb related turned out to be gearbox. Vibrations caused carb flooding.
  4. Seems like carbs are going out of balance, I don't believe it is electrical but carb related
  5. You have now presented more things wrong than a simple ground speed lower than planned which was stated in the question. Are you sure you aren't now employed by CASA?
  6. Understaffed? They have more staff per aircraft than many other countries
  7. If it was carb ice there would be a reduction in revs. GS is outside of aircraft systems.
  8. How to determine xwind from windsock? Not an accurate science. Next time your at a field ask around what pilots think the wind speed is from reading the windsock? Could be quite educational.
  9. My concern with the Chinese rotax copy is parts supply, no not for the Zongshen but the genuine rotax if fake parts start filtering through that could cause your rotax to become less than it should be.
  10. Price is ‘rigged’ by manufacturer of course.
  11. My 914 j400 does not need lead in the tail w&b is spot on
  12. Yes the j400 is the same as a j430 but with the shorter wings. Empty wt 345kg useful load 355kg good for my family at the moment. Good aircraft. Lifts more than a c172, cruises faster, climbs much much better, all on half the fuel.
