Citabria with gyros by Bob Esser
After long consideration, I have decided on the type of plane to purchase: A Citabria 7ECA. What led me to this decision was the following desire. I want to be a part time instructor and I think the perfect niche for me is roving tailwheel and spin trainer for the flight schools in my area. I...

What video cameras are people using? by Dave
I'm considering setting-up a video system for aerobatic lessons to record the stude and the aircraft's attitude - ideally 2 or 3 tracks concurrently. What experiences have people had with video cameras during g loading? is any camera regarded as better or worse under aerobatic conditions? Has...

Beating Nausea by S Culver
Does anyone have recommendations on how to permanently beat nausea while flying aerobatics? I know of all the commonly reported ways to *temporarily* beat it: ginger snaps, the electronic wristband, etc. I've been taking lessons in a 152 Aerobat for about 6 months now, and almost every time we...

Dumb question maybe re Stall Turn by Surreyrider
Need someone to settle an argument. I do not fly, so your answers need to be in laymans terms and hopefully put simply. I've occasionally watched aerobatic displays and seen a maneouver called a stall turn. Now, I more or less understand how this works, but there comes a point, just before the...

Aerobatic engine IO-360 AEIO-360 comparison by Jay Moreland
I need to have someone explain to me the advantages of two different Aerobatic engines: IO-360 with Christen Inverted Oil system VS an AEIO-360. Are there any inherent benefits of one over the other when doing acro with negative G maneuvers? Or are they essentially the same? Can you take any...

Information about a TL3424 RAS instrument by Someone
Dear All, I am looking for information on the TL3424 RAS acceleration logger (http://www2.tl-elektronic.com/index.php? page=lsa&p_id=7&PHPSESSID=fee5ff74bb944f141d491dcb1af990f6). As I undestand it, this logger can log speed and G-acceleration during a period of time (not just when an exceeded...

Christen Fuel Pump troubleshooting by ShawnD2112
Hello, folks. I'm fishing to see if anyone else here's had the same problem I'm having. I've got a Pitts S-1D with a Christen wobble fuel pump. The action on it has gotten so stiff when priming that I fear it's close to locking up. It still primes fine and the fuel pressure's good when the...

Tailwheel question by Steve B
I have a Starduster SA100 with a Scotts tailwheel. The tailwheel is not tight on the springs it is loose and the wheel can be moved a few inches each direction before the springs make contact. I would think that there should be no play in the springs... my thought is that it could cause shimmy and...

Compression Tests by Doug
Does anyone do an "automotive" type compression test on their aircraft engine? I think this kind of "dynamic" test might show problems (such as valves not opening all the way), that a leakdown test would not (and vice-versa). Anyway my annual is coming up and I want to do it. I imagine something...

These should be in the FAQ: (1) Can a PPL do aerobatics? If another certification is required what are the hourly flight minimums in an aero aircraft? (2) What is the difference between the wing-on-top aerobats like the Decathlon and the low-wing types like Extra 300 and Cap-232? (3) Where can I...

Blunt Trailing Edges by ......... :-\)\)
Hi All, Many modern aerobatic aircraft have blunt trailing edges on the wing and ailerons. Can someone tell me: 1. Why it this done - what are the benefits and side effects. There is a lot of contradictory information on the web and I simply cannot get to the bottom of it. 2. What is theory...

Too tall for a Pitts? by Glenn
(I tried posting this last night via a different NNTP server, with photos, but I never saw the posting show up anywhere, so I'll post again) I am looking at purchasing a homebuilt S1D but am concerned that I might be too tall. Headroom is probably OK, but I'm not sure about legroom. The second...
