Where, on saturday morning?

Too easy Doc...Ambo Station ...Near Muttaburra....did I hear you under-shooting?........what happened to FTDK sops....stabilized approaches?, etc... why didn't you use the cross strip, and fly around the cattle crate on final?.........would have saved you all that taxiing!!!!!!!!!

Ripper Jaba - I'll expect a vist (and a fly!) in the near future

Here is a dark-night, black-hole remote area arrival on a bush strip lit with kero flares.....



Those first lights are not the strip - they are car headlights.

Thanks folks.......... And yes the pitot cover was on, we were cleaning/bedding brakes and making sure it behaved in a open space.

Yes it was RUT and the Critters input was invaluable! WE DID BUILD this one, unlike a number who just never will and need him to make it happen. There is nobody better around to keep your project professional if you are building an RV.

Sorry XXX............ been so busy this last week!

Aww c'mon Doc, you just a little jealous that it goes quicker than yours...

J3
, that is yet to be tested - and NOT likely!

Dr
Doc,
I know three RV-10 owners and all of them will easily do at least 175kts at 75% power. One has an 0540 the other two IO540's and all make 260HP or maybe a bit more

Jabba, be interested to know the figures when you get the spats on...

Cheers
CB

Nice "standard" overhead rejoining procedures there Dr F! I always find it comforting that the ponies respond when low on FNA!!

Food for thought

There are not too many things in aviation more dangerous than this combination:

an aeroplane
an audience
and a video camera

Not according to the Critter, but what would he know!

Dr

PS: The FTDK is in the shop as we speak, being tuned and rigged to perfection in preparation for the inevitable showdown with the Retard Vehicle!

I find that rather amusing Doctor.

Didn't you realise that everyone is an RV expert, even those that have never set foot in one.

FTDK,
Don't know the Critter and I will bow to his experience, I haven't built any! I have flown in two RV-10's whilst I have been here in the States and both TAS'd at over 175 but the owners both said they plan on 175. The third (that I am only taking the owners word for) TAS's at over 180 and I am inclined to believe him as it only had a basic VFR panel and is very light.

I have also spoken with the owner of this one:


and he said he also plans on 175. He has a very nice full glass IFR panel (sorry don't have any photos of the panel in this one.)

Anyway I guess we will see what Jabas does Out of curiosity what do you plan on in the FTDK?

Cheers
CB

Bwahahahahaha,
I reckon the Doc is reading knots when he should be reading MPH! A V35 that does 180kts should be in the Guinness Book of World Records!

And Jab, it was my pleasure to have my butt kicked by a 180kt FTDK! Bwahahahahaha

Cheers

WannabeQF, I don't know if you value your life, but if you do I suggest that you don't run around calling a beloved member of someone's family "ugly". Especially not the Doc's beloved.

My experience with the v tail Bonanza's is one of a safe, solid, overbuilt, comfortable, clean and fast aircraft. I would not discount the claims being made here about their performance. I have flown both the models below and have a high regard for them.

Reference V35B Owners Manual incl supplements 1972:

8,000ft, 2700 RPM 206 MPH or 178Kts.

Reference V35TC Owners manual incl supplements 1972:

10,000ft, 2500 RPM (75% power), 208 MPH or 180.54 Kts.

Just for interest;

V35TC, 24,000ft 2500 RPM 230 MPH or 199.64 Kts.

The above is at full gross weight, so if "racing trim" excludes excess weight, and the aircraft is not tired, I would expect better performance than this. I have both books at hand if anyone needs more figures.
