  1. There was a news clip this morning that it due to an inflight breakup...... Any further news??
  2. I didn't have anything to do with the Bleriot. The mechanic who changed the engines received this one for his work and he left it for me to sell for him. JG

  11. Try it, you might like it. It's a delightful feeling just floating along with just the swish of the air going by. It's almost addictive..... Focus on the airspeed for best glide and the plane will fly just fine.
  12. What sort of aircraft is that with a 22:1 glide ratio?? That's darn near a glider..... Nothing like most of the recreational aircraft we fly, with GR around 10:1.....
  13. I must emphasize that this only tested glide at idle power vs prop stopped, no other option with a Rotax engine. It says nothing about glide with a windmilling prop. Someone with an aircraft/engine combo that does leave the prop windmilling at best glide speed needs to do the tests to settle that argument that goes on and on. It's easy to do, and only needs a stopwatch besides the altimeter you already have, and a phone does that. Early morning before thermal activity, climb to 3200ft, set up a glide at your best glide speed, time the descent from 3000 to 2000ft. Repeat se
  14. There’s been a bit of discussion (argument) recently regarding the difference between glide ratios at idle power vs with prop stopped. I’ve long known from experience that the glide ratio with prop stopped is less than at idle, but decided to do real measurement tests to settle the argument. With a Rotax engine there’s no option to keep the prop spinning; it’ll stop and stay stopped very quickly after switching off at glide speed. In an 80kt dive the prop will creep slowly from one compression stroke to the next, but no way spin. In this test, the idle speed static on the ground was 167
