    Crosswind and turbulence. Heňo is no longer a student of Rogallo Team. Today he successfully passed the final examination and he became the trike PILOT.

      Great job Dave.  Thanks for sharing. Makes us all do a double triple check.

      You did a great job Dave.  Yes, it could have happened at a worse time in your flight.  Over the years I have had quite a few engine outs and almost all fuel related but all of them were in true ultralight trikes where total mass and sink rate is lower so usually a bit more time to search for a suitable LZ and landing speed is lower as well.  Hope I never have to deal with an out of fuel engine out in my Scout.  I do periodically practice engine off landings but none of them have been off field.  When I first got my current trike I did as Ken described, adding one gallon at a time with sharpie marks.  I highly recommend doing that for any one that has a translucent tank.  Dave this kind of experience helps to build confidence that you can handle a real engine out, but we should never get so confident that we become complacent with fuel level checks.

      Wow...good job Dave. Just seeing this for the first time. Very fortunate you had some landing options.

    I think the plugin requires Flash - typically not on most phones.

    Here's a little take from the Joseph 2019 fly-in.  Thought we'd do a little trolling for fish!

    We flew at Hušky on annual goulash party. Husky is like a small recreational area where my friend lives and he has his trike there. There is no runway, no airport... a field only

    Thanks! Our country is beautiful with a rich history. The trike he made himself with R912 80HP and he uses TL Apollo wing.

    Amazing castles. Looks like a comfortable trike. Thanks for sharing!

    Well the 2019 NW Trike Fly-in is behind us.  Things went very smoothly (except for our La Grande folks)  and the week was exceptional.  Great company and decent flying!  Actually, I enjoyed the cooler weather and the cloud flying...

I have an active student now and I want finish his training with the old wing because he knows it well. For the other side, we (my colleague from our trike flying school and me) bought used trike in a goood condition. We will use it as a training trike. Wing Quasar CZ15,4, trike Cross 5 Sport (the same type as mine is), R912 80HP.
