      Nice country, Ken. North America has such an amazing variety of scenery to fly over.

      Thanks Tussock. I'm trying my best to fly over most of the West side.

    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...

    The guy was a guide at the airport and told me, he newer flew trike. We returned after sunset, but a short test flight we did. He was happy and maybe we will have a new student.

      Yes Ken. He shouted of joy immediately when i gave full throttle. We just climbed up to short downwind when he asked me: who can learn me how to fly trike? He repeated "i want it!" maybe 100 times until we landed.

    Ken, that’s what I noticed too and about the liters or gallons, not sure. Wexfordair is right, the pic is a screenshot I took from a competition. https://youtu.be/gbsShMpxXQA

    There's a number on the trike,  maybe it is used for fuel limited events in competition.  perhaps jozinko knows these guys?

    Looking close up it looks like there may be a dark line running down the bag from top to bottom. Perhaps the vent? Do you know if that is Liters of volume marked out? or gallons?

  • Trike Ops commented on the photo Mast Long Range Fuel tank
    That is my concern too, I remember that accident report. I'm just curious about the design of this mast tank, wonder if the vent is internal (long pipe from the bottom up). I see 3 fuel lines at the bottom of the tank, one of them might be the vent...

    Looks neat, but I'm concerned with the positioning of this above the motor. Reminds me of one of the accidents caused by improper fuel tank venting and in flight fire that occurred in Hawaii a few years back.

  • Trike Ops commented on a video Out of gas!
    One of the things I like about trikes is the exceptional visibility, specially when picking up a field to put it down. I'm also a fixed wing pilot, but prefer flying trikes or anything open cockpit. Too much metal around you (blind spots) when...

    Congratulations! Well done. 
  • Ken commented on a video Out of gas!
    Brilliant work Dave. Really fantastic landing and cool head under pressure. I had a flight where I came very close to running out fo fuel myself. I did a trip 2 up from the dry lake south of Boulder City NV up to Valley of Fire near the north end of...
