    I can give you my opinion or yo can ask a general question on the forum. You might have noticed I like a plane to have fairly neutral stability. I've flown Jets that have adverse dutch roll characteristics due mainly having wings designed for high M Crit Figures. Nev

    I was wondering under which circumstances one wing design would be better. Also, have you yourself ever released controls while flying? If so were there any noticeable changes in flight. Adam

    I had an uncle or 2 who instructed at Broadmeadows, one of them, Roy, later, in the mid to late 70s, went to Rutherford to help fix up the tiger moths. I suspect you wouldn't have known my father who instructed at RNAC from 46 to 47 before going to Tamworth to join East-West. I worked for a couple of years in the early 70s and was saddened to see Broadmeadows turned into a football stadium. Keep well

    Col I only saw this yesterday. so I apologise profusely. RNAc had been given many extensions at District Park and it was definitely too small particularly with the amount of TV arials sp? around the perimeter. I was able to go into the workshops there about 1955 and flew there about 4 yeares later with Leu Plumdtead the chief flying instructor, and Stan Hone my instructor, mainly. Regards Nev

    FH, you seem to have a lot of 2stroke time, are you instructing at all, I've been asked if I want to do some tug work for hang gliders using a dragon fly, I have a few hours TW but have never done the 2stroke training, if you don't instruct can you recommend someone in Vic,
    Cheers Mat 0411733393
