Well folks, I have now completed 8 flights on the UL with the Evojet 180vx. This engine is just awesome for power. I am on 40-50% on almost all phases of fight. Only straight vertical is where 100% comes into play. Otherwise, with simple power management most manouvers are with around 50-60% throttle at most.
The only thing I am yet to figure out is the occurance of bounce on landings. I always approach with a steady sink rate, with no attitude changes, down to a flair. On the final I'm on idle.
But out of the 8 flights so far, I have had two messy bouncy landings. I can't figure out why. Is my speed too low/fast, sink rate too high.
The thing is, it all looks nice and steady until touch down, and then the dreaded bounce sets in, and then its just hoping for the best outcome.
Though when it does happen right, it greases in. I'm using stock CARF UL gear setup. I broke a spring on my last bouncy landing.
I glad that the airframe is this strong. We fly of a tarmac runway on an airforce base. So there is no forgiveness from the ground!!
And help would be fantastic.
Are the prolink struts any better at reducing bounce?
