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 .
