      I think the wind over the next few day will blow the offending tree down

          Thanks both the forward vis is better than most,loads of rudder required compared with anything I've had a go in,and as I was told on other post very late round out ,which is how I like to fly,did two hrs at Kemble thurs and 14 landings,Tarmac and grass,can't wait to get her back here.

            I flew an AX2000 HKS with rob grimwood as my (then) young co pilot in a world championship ( 2000 ish) we managed third place! Good old tub. climb is shall we say leisurely, but fuel consumption seems no more than 8 litres an hour or so apparently almost regardless of throttle setting! Glide is rather breeze block like ( the HKS seems to mess up the airflow over wing centre section and tail when throttle closed) but that is rather amusing in itself - a very steep approach can be flown and with a sideslip thrown in can seem near vertical!

            We ran a 582 version on our school accumulating over 5000 hours. Airframe wore well - just watch for corroding battens and fabric fretting through the aluminium on the wing trailing edges ( taping the tubes stops that).

            I admit for a fondness for the old 'cabbage crate' as it was affectionally called. We even did a round Britain rally in our school one - did burn rather a bit of fuel though with throttle opened up!

            Unbeaten for legal payload capacity - the 582 version weighed in at little over 200Kg and had 450kg MTOW!

              Thanks for that Paul ,it is being permitted at the moment so will pay attention to the point you noted,I've flown her 3 hrs one type conv and agree about the brick ,it would concern a new pilot but after info on here accept how steep you come in,pointing it at the deck like you have too when you are normaly rounding out took a few goes at,thanks again Dave.
