The patchwork cultivation photo of Jabas above has in the window, a reflection of a 'Dynon Avionics' manual.
I now know why he posts these photos asking us to guess where he is.
The 'Glass' has died and he is embarassingly lost, and when you correctly guess where he was today, he knows where he needs to flight plan from tomorrow.
Sneaky Bastard.
Not quite...........but it is a reflection from the label on the EFIS or EMS.
Like this one during a climb.....



And this one in the cruise



Hope that snake went and bought a lotto ticket - luckiest snake alive - Jaba doesn't typically spend that much time on the center line.
Ouch

Re post 9379

Do these people actually know anything about the 'principles of flight', or is it just a 'wing and a prayer' type of flight?

Thanks for setting me straight there Jaba.
I think it may have been a reflection of the PFD/ND in the 'climbing' photo.
The one where your altitude is 11,575ft an impressive ROC of 750fpm and a QNH setting of 1014.
Can we look forward to some overseas piccies of the RV in the near future.

That's just Jaba's zoom climb that he does for his photos of the Dynon......

Trent, I wondered how long that would take to be spotted, chocky frog/Coopers Pale Ale to you too.

The rate of climb was that impressive it wound the BARRO setting round a notch

I have to admit I was taking that photo just after getting the OK for climb from F110 to 130, and in doing so I had incrimented the QNH , I took the pic so I could dump the camera/phone and I then set it back again, as you can see in a later one.

There was a few pot holes in the road I was climbing on top of, and I even gave up on adjusting the heading bug all the time, which I know is a bit slack

Prolly more bugs there somewhere..... Will run out of frogs and beer

I don't doubt you play with a straight bat, but I'll still take the chocky frog anyway. (Really like them chocky frogs, eh). That RV sure is a goer.
As for that Coopers stuff, if it was any good they'd put some more preservatives in it. Crowny Gold's a good drop, but why would anyone drink anything other than Bundy anyway???? Puts a bit of fight back into an old dog.

morno = show off

Trent....yeah....straight bat...I make boo boos and even though I captured it in a pic, no point hiding a boo boo. I am always impressed to see how quick folk pick stuff up. Mind you I am guilty of looking at pics and picking the oops's too

Put preservatives in Coopers........ Chocky frogs confiscated!!!

Bundy ... makes Willy Wag Tails want to fight Emu's

Now here is a mighty fine drop


I would even fly around Oz again just to get some more!

Now we know who is in the cruise at the higher end.....who is going to post their pics at the other end of the tape

Warbo and 185skywagon should win that contest.

Pack those carefully if you are taking them to OshKosh Jabba. We don't want a repeat of you and Beechie's performance where you smashed a good bottle of Bundy in your luggage en-route USA. We could smell your bag from the other end of the motel.

Jaba, Deny me the Chocky Frog will you?
In that case I'll also point out that it won't fly left wing low if you set the rudder trim appropriately. Even with all that good gear the Sammy Davis Junior (or in your case the 'Michael Jackson') is crying out for a little bit of love and devotion. (Ignore if your rudder trim is a little bendy bit hanging off the rrrrrs end)
Your elevator trim is either extremely sensitive or your pax were running up and down the aisle, because in both photos it is out of trim. AND
With the AP engaged to an ARINC GPS it is still a bit right of track. Didn't you glue the Fin on straight?

Ooooh you are good I guess that earns ya a frog back. But no preservative free Coopers

True Even with all that good gear the Sammy Davis Junior (or in your case the 'Michael Jackson') is crying out for a little bit of love and devotion. (Ignore if your rudder trim is a little bendy bit hanging off the rrrrrs end) Not quite, it is adjustable in flight, but it is manual and involves reaching over.....and I usually just rest a boot on to take up the little bit not dialled out. Yes...call me Lazy...guilty as charged. besides it goes pretty well even not perfectly trimmed
Your elevator trim is either extremely sensitive or your pax were running up and down the aisle, because in both photos it is out of trim. Yep, in a bit of light chop and it could have been just a momentary thing. In the climb it was just the AP complaining andbeing lazy....I was just being lazy and not complaining AND
With the AP engaged to an ARINC GPS it is still a bit right of track. Didn't you glue the Fin on straight? Now that one earns you a chocky frog back I had not seen that earlier, the pic in the climb was bang on, but later just a smidgeon off, I did dodge around a couple of tops, so maybe that explains it, might have been settling back on track when I took the pic, I do not recall. They are usually pixel for pixel in line.

No glueing the fin....its American not French

You really did get me there

That Super Phantom Kite with a Shoe Box thing looks very close to a 'bite' to me. Very high pitch, slow speed and very close to the ground with power on. Not a long future there. Another dent in a perfectly flat field coming.

Steve, .... Cricket! ....please.
Cricket is a sport for all those school kids and Unco's who didn't get picked to play Rugby at school. People only play cricket because they're no good at fishing.
Rugby League, (not the Rugby that is 'Played in Heaven', because it's played by a bunch of fairies), are the great and Godlike sportsmen and they drink Bundy, lots of it. Puts hair on your chest and balls. ***League players make the best pilots, because they've got an interesting topic to talk about on long sectors*** (Aviation content)

Other minor sports like soccer and hockey are played by under 17's and people who haven't yet worked out they're gay.
Golf is a sport for people who other people don't want to play with.
Sailing, each and every sailor is a Bundy drinker, the Rugby League players kindred spirit.
Tennis is a noble sport, there might be a few Bundy drinkers amongst them.
That just leaves Road Cyclists, the sport for people dedicated to Organ Donation.
God bless Road Cyclists. I hope they don't drink the Bundy, because we may need their organs one day. No offence to organ donators, they are truly magnificent.
