Quincy Memorial day rally mini bike "putt around"

Decided to put my helmet cam on and PUTT around the field to give
a sense of what and who was there.

Check out who was chasing Rick!

PostSubject: brakes!   Wed Jun 02, 2010 11:04 am

Mike this is an awesome video.

can't get the instructor out of my blood.

video shows pilot carrying at least half brakes the entire flight. that is like flying a cessna around at half flaps.

increases lift..., drag, and in this case turbulence

remedy is to release all pressure on brakes (steering bars) during most of the flight and letting it fly you.

with long legs might need some "stirrups" to overcome tendency

Thanks Doug...I do have long legs and have been looking for tiger bars for this bird for some time
cant find any that fit the six Chuter
I also still have a right turn tendency even after adjustments (links and CG),so I always have
to keep pressure on the left bar to counter act...Maybe another link needs to be used...
any other ideas Doug?

Thanks

Mike

three things
1. we are close to having a new set of our own extension bars available so will keep you tuned in
2. we can also use back stops to set your steering bars out there where your feet are naturally
3. next time we are together...lets work on trim. I have never failed to trip a machine and canopy near perfect for cruise.

what is the measurement currently on you left c.g. and your right? maybe I can do some diagnosis via internet

PostSubject: Tiger bars   Fri Jun 04, 2010 9:09 pm

Thanks Doug...I appreciate that and I will do some measurements
I just found and purchased a used set of tiger bars on the net from a fellow PPC pilot
that should solve the leg reach problem for now...but I am still interested in
what Six Chuter has come up with......

Thanks again Doug for your help on this
