  1. Remember the LSA rule limits to 120 knots cas at sea level and maximum continuous power. That could allow 141 true at 10,000 feet. WF
  2. Here is an old rule of thumb that works pretty well. Take IAS and add 2% for each 1,000 feet of altitude. WF
  3. A former mechanic glued on a stall strip, like from a wing stoll kit, on the bottom backside of my wheel pant to help control the shaking in cruise. He aimed them a bit off center but not sure how he figured out how to aim them. WF
  4. I have been on since about 2007, Duane, starting when the forum was called CFlyer and run by a different crew. You might be chronologically older than me, however! WF
  5. Ed, sorry to hear of your mishap! Most pilots know that a quartering tailwind is challenging, but I have seen little discussion of the proper technique if you have to land in a quartering tail wind. We don't want the wind to "get under" the tail. My guess is to use lots of flap and make sure the stick is in your lap on touchdown. Slower than normal would help with the visual sensation of higher speed. Does anyone teach students about this? WF

    WingX Bulletin

    My Wing X pro started saying that the sectional, charts and Aopa data bases are "unavailable" when I try to update, although my subscription is good to August 2020. Called Hilton Software tech support, and I was told that my ipad mini is "too old" to be supported. It has IOS 9.3.6, and the tech guy said I have to buy a new ipad with IOS 11. or newer. The ipad otherwise works like new, so this is pretty frustrating. Any suggestions? WF
  7. A practical feel for CG can be developed by pushing down on the tail and noting how much force is takes to lift the nosewheel. If it takes something, likely you are good on CG .WF
  8. One trick is to check on final how much rudder you have left. I think I run out of rudder with flaps 15 when the crosswind is 25 knots. Anything less than that is pretty easy. WF
  9. Also want the glider tape in that area to be in good shape. WF
  10. Wayne is coming in N207WF, but not until Thursday. Phone is (310) 374-5030. See 'yall soon! WF
  11. hope the new guppy mouth helps it run cooler. WF
  12. Where do you order a rocket? Mine is coming up too. WF

    Port Clinton 2019

    Sounds fun. I often go to Traverse city after OSH. What is the time frame? WF
  14. This will depend a lot on how your prop is pitched. Go up and open the throttle at a normal cruise altitude and see what you get. I assume if Roger set you up its about 5600 rpm. WF
