Cheetah - a satisfied owner

Recommended Posts

The GPS got my attention. What is it?

The one in post #7 photo 2 is my original Mio.

The one in post #7 photo 5 is my new Mio.

Read all about it here.

Highly recommended. A number of people have bought them as a result of that post - and hopefully will be as happy as I am.

Slarti,

Please excuse my lack of knowledge but you mentioned trim with bungies?

How does that work

 

Here you go BLA82 and Doug.

Snapped a few of the bungie trim arrangement. You've made me notice how dirty my floor is. Time for a vacuum.

With everything in place. Turn the wheel for elevator trim.

Just lift the velcro and slide the bungie left or right for aileron trim.

You can see the spool.

The arc and detentes were for the original lever. The holes were too far apart.

Deskpilot, as an aside can I ask what sport you were engaged in to get the scars, and are they really bad?

I may be thick, but what am I missing here? Sarcasm for asking questions is the only thing that comes to mind. As Pauline would say............Please explain.

Ozzie, I'm happy for, but I still don't get it.

Yenn, you go down in my esteem as I'm here to learn and not be made fun off. You may know everything, but some of us are relative beginners and have a lot to learn. This is particularly true of me in my present endeavors.

Thanks Slarti. My sincere apologies Yenn, I just didn't make the connection. Very droll but. You're back up there again.

BTW, does the chest zipper count?

Still don't see how the bungies work without changing the mid point of control and extra work load when going against it. Maybe the 'mad cow' disease is taking effect already.(Boston Legal fans will know what I mean)

I can see I'll have to do that drawing after all. There is extra workload, but the controls are so light you don't have to move far anyway.

Plus the Cheetah doesn't need trimming for different phases of flight, although I'm still not sure how that works. Once the all-flying tail is set at an attitude, it wants to stay there. It's more a trim for weight changes (pax, luggage, etc.).

Deskpilot. Havn't looked at this post for a while and going through it I thought I had offended you. That made me feel bad but further on I see you got it. Lucky for me as I meant no offence, just being a smartarse as usual.

From another thread - Don asked this question.

 

He's probably not the only one wondering, so I thought I'd reply here.

 

I still love my Cheetah. There are many things it does right, and it certainly satisfies all the major criteria on my list.

Informationally,

Ross

 

 

Thanks Ross, useful information. I know this is an old thread, about a slightly older model, but I'm looking at the Sierra 100 as a 'contender' for a future build.

Thank you for posting your experiences.
