  1. One of the tricks I learned eventually to judge my round out height was to envision my hangar door at the runway threshold and to envision me flying through it before I began to lift the nose. There are often hangers nearby that I could glance at to see the height so I could envision it correctly.
  2. Half Dome is known the world round. Clarence King is a Sierra Gem that is not so famous but a pretty face as well.
  3. slipping is too much bank for the radius and skidding is too little bank. I think we are talking about skidding here either left or right not skid vs slip.
  4. I have always struggled to move flaperon trim and far less on pitch but it can be too stiff at times. Rudder always moves easily. I don't really know why. I just accepted it and lived with it.
  5. The best flight ever happens when that 50kt wind aloft is on your tail and the sheer is smooth. The worst flight ever happens when that 50kt tail wind sucks you into the Owens Valley and you cruise for over an hour in moderate turbulence.
  6. I heard about your presence as well. Hit me up some day and we'll fly in the Sierra.
  7. ten minutes flight time to this location, my back yard
  8. The light was very good for 15 minutes, got a few.
  9. I'm very light and can still exceed 500fpm, I think.
  10. Bill, I do these flights without referencing my altimeter, We are looking over top of Mt Ritter at 13,135'. I'll say 13,350' but I'm guessing
  11. Sunrise view of the Ritter Range with Mammoth Mountain visible. On the left is Lake Catherine at North Glaicer Pass and to its right are the seldom seen Ritter Lakes
  12. True but variable. If you change RPM to throttle setting then it applies no matter how you are pitched.
