First patterns on the P-40

Post  RknRusty on Fri Sep 08, 2017 12:06 am

I just lost a half hour of typing somehow. CRAP!!!!

We flew and trimmed a little and both of us flew patterns... that ain't quite as entertaining as my post was intended to be. 4:15 am is coming too soon to rewrite it, so screw it, here's a movie.
It should go live before most of you see it.

Definitely a clean engine run. What was the wind like there? Seemed to do just fine, yet once in a while you can see a slight problem with line tension.

I am always wary of a trim tab. Nothing I fly has one, and I have a few contest planes that are fully trimmed. I've only seen them on warped wings. Surely it wasn't warped out of the box? Perhaps you are compensating for a tip weight or leadout issues?

Like I said never messed with trim tab, so only speculating.

Well, at least you got some good flight time.

I hate it when I lose my typed paragraph or responses! I always reminded of this joke that ends with........Jesus Saves!
