    912 oil temp

    I'm not 100% certain about this, but I believe with the oil temp below 50 degrees c you should keep the revs below about 2200rpm or there is the danger of oil bypassing the filter.

    how old are flexwing flyers...

    And fair play to anyone in their 60's flying a flex. I'm 42 and sometimes I feel like my arms are about to drop off when I'm trying to land the thing. Maybe I'm just weak and pathetic!
