Hi there,

They are not as nice to fly in my opinion, the controls (particularly the rudder) seem less sensitive and somehow you feel less part of the aircraft. After all, it's basically the...

Hi Mate, yes, I'm no longer in the T cart, it's still at Eastbach though. I bought the others out in the Cub so I'm the sole owner of that frankly tatty relic now. How's the Auster? - you will be...

I make a point of setting the idle speed on my aircraft as low as possible as I need to fly into some extremely short strips sometimes. I find that if the engine will just about run during the...

Been with them for several years - never had to claim, but prices and service seem very good. I'm just about to renew my Cub insurance - it will be interesting to see how much extra the increased...

Chaps,

WR is right, once stopped the prop on my Cub won't spin from a VNE dive (which is only 100mph). If I had stuck the nose down in the first place, rather than pulling back to convert energy...

BarShaker,

A 65 in both aircraft - obviously different actual engines, but the same type, and both in good heath (comps in the 70's). We are talking about a small engine with a 5.4-1 compression...

BS,

I've got to say I'm with L'n'S. The difference in inertia is really marked on small motors like the A65 especially with 6ft props. My Cub prop will stop pretty much straight away in the air,...

Crikey,

The whole episode sounds like a carbon copy of my little incident in the FRED last year, right down to the VW partial, then full loss of power and the hoards of keystone cops arriving.

DT,

Yes that's it. It was also treated to a rather unfair flight test in Pilot a few months ago also. Nick Bloom the reviewer was at great pains to 'big up' the poor brakes and squirrily ground...

Hi There,

It's the forerunner of the 0300 commonly found in older C172s. The displacement is 270in, it puts out 125hp at (I think) 2550rpm. It was fitted to some models of Globe Swift. Also in the...
