Are you referring to tail heavy past neutral? I find a plane that's nose heavy a pain in the butt. The fly way to hot. Don't slow down for landing. That Just my opinion though.

To form an opinion like that Bradley. It indicates to me that you "Do" fly, possibly a lot.
Good for you. As opposed to many that don't get to fly enough.

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

How about a new topic today?

Longevity.

As an example. The oldest of the three Zenoha's I have owned is starting to show wear.
Last time out I thought this carb is starting to get sloppy in the butterfly bore. Interesting that a moving part of this nature is the one that shows wear the most.


Any other stories, of just a great engine. That has performed as advertised, for a log-long time?

Let's hear about them.

Trevor you have to put that 190 in a plane. This can't be another bastard child that no one wants to fly. A MVVS 58 switched hands 4 times and still haven't been fired.
Where is it now?

We have one here inthe East, perhaps it needs a Brother!

This past summer? I can count on one hand how many times I was out

But I have felt the difference between nose heavy and neutral balance and nose heavy is not fun at all.

On a real plane the CG is always set-up to be in favour of slightly nose heavy from neutral because in the event of a stall the planes natural tendency will be to go nose down which is easier to recover from than a flat spin

Ed, the G30 makes no sense (?). Would you mean a G38, possibly. If so a very good set-up leave it alone. Or if you mean, a DLE 30. If it works well leave it alone. If this (g30) is giving you trouble, by all means. As a G26 is still powering many 20yr old Cubs out there, actually G23's.

Better yet, build/assemble something new yet this season. Until you hit eleventeen, you don't have to many.

Hope this helps,

-Dale-
