Extra landings / Predictable

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!

The GP Extra 300 , discussed previously ( re: Balance ), has now made many flights.

This is a 40 size with a 61 ST.

As it turns out the airplane is very predicable at landing approach.

I like the way it sinks when I slow the engine.

Today the airplane behaved very nicely, each landing was perfectly on the runway, none were hot, each landing was nose high.

I tried the flaperons , at 50% , It didn't seem to do much, maybe a little longer float.

One thing I do like is the fact that aft end sinks nicely, giving a nose high attitude without any struggle.

Of all my planes, I think this one might be the most predictable airplane to setup for a landing.

Perhaps this success is a result of a good center of gravity, a good balance.

So far I am really enjoying the Extra.

Re: Extra landings / Predictable

Good to hear you got it all sorted out . I'm currently sorting out similar issues on a Funtana 90 , and think i have it all worked out now . Tomorrow's flights should have it set up perfectly .
The engine is the heart of an airplane , but the pilot is it's soul .
