    The Raven Tailwheel arrived last week and by now I have 5 landings in the books with it.All
    worked out as expected...landing rollout is noticably easier. The airplane rolls more stable
    and the locked ...

    I need to go see Skip's plane; too bad it has to be painted.Last time I spoke to him the plan
    was to keep the carbon look..just to paint the red and silver of his scheme.But I'm not sure
    how this work...

    I'm not at all sure I want to use full forward trim as the unlock position for the tailwheel
    because you will often want to leave it there for moving the airplane around on the ground --
    easy to overl...

    The S-1-11 plans show the lock actuated with full forward stick. There's an arm added to the
    lower end of the aft elevator idler for this purpose.This means..if you use full forward
    elevator during fl...

    Just curious Patric - why do you want to switch to a locking TW at this point?Experienced a
    heavy tailwheel shimmy on a gusty 15kts X-wind landing, lost control on the final rollout and
    had a ground l...

    Hi,we are planning on getting a locking tailwheel on our S-1, just ordered one from Raven.So
    far, changing from the actual one to a locking one on the rear seems simple and easy. But I've
    never seen a...

    Thank you guys...yeah, the Pitts is a lot of fun, even with the O-320..and in a country where
    the Avgas prize reached >9$/gallon its pretty good to have fun with a 4 cylinder engine :)I
    really love th...

    To dig up an old thread....Anyone have more input on the 320 vs 360 in an S1 debate? I have
    flown a 320 powered S1C, a 175hp S1S with a hopped up 320, and a 215hp S1D. The S1D was
    obviously a rocket s...

  • Posted in thread: 'REVO' Acro Monoplane on 04-11-2017 at 05:14 AM
    A little confused on how he will be adapting the 912 for Akro. 912's have specific limitations
    on unusual attitudes. Not just oil considerations but coolant too. But hey Lycomings weren't
    designed to ...
