No problem at all Brian, glad to help. You did well for a maiden, we didn't have to help you much at all. Great job!

Hey congrats Brian!!

Good to see you had some luck with the maiden. I am sure there was a lot of skill involved as well.

Always nice to see another jet in the area, and your Hunter looks great!

Re: Wingham today - Congrats Brian

Went out with Mike to Wingham today.
Spent some time today flying and fine tuning the DG800.
Shut down the engine every time to practice gliding and landings.
I got a tip from a friend glider pilot to use the throttle as an air brake/flap control.
I had the air brakes/flaps set on a slider since my thinking was to land with power.
So now I have a switch to activate the throttle to become the air brakes/flaps control which allows for better control to land.

Full throttle is air brakes down/flaps up, as you reduce throttle, air brakes proportionally come up and flaps proportionally come down.
Was very pleased with my controlled landings.

Here is a video showing some extracts of the flights. Did not show much powered flights, wanted to show how well it glides and lands after fine tuning the mixes and travels.

Re: Wingham today - Congrats Brian

Very nice, Liked the last landing w/o speed brakes!! I wanted to come but had a appointment that got cancelled at the last minute. Too late to head to Wingham, bummer. Painted the Hunter to-day and the repaired gear is in the mail. Hope to fly it again again by July 6 or earlier..

Money generates lift.
