    No, it is the same for any aircraft. The washout ensures that the inboard portion of the wing looses lift before the outboard portion. This makes for a softer stall and helps maintain control at...

    I know for a fact that those aircraft were used as aerial photo platforms at that time, so I would say it is the most probable answer. As far as being IFR, the end users could have gotten it rated...

    It was the Katana, I met a guy that flew one of those A/C for games. It may very well have been the same plane and pilot. It was '96 in Tulsa, Ok.

    The problem is that this is true of everything, but the general public doesn't care as long as it's loss doesn't affect them. You can't take away motorcycles because it affects too many people, even...

    The problem in the case of FPV is that models for recreation are, as of the proposed new rules, going to be held to a stricter standard than full scale aircraft. According to the proposed rules the...

    When taking off with minimal airspeed and full power you will need right rudder to avoid the left wing drop. Call it torque, P-factor, or tip stall, the results and the remedy are the same. Rudder...

    First off I don't have FPV issues, I don't ever plan on doing it. Second this is more about overstepping their authority. They are denying a legitimate work around to allow limited FPV while having a...

    Yes beyond line of sight (BLOS) is not a good idea, however the decision that the operator of the controls has to have unassisted LOS is absurd. Full scale has a similar situation and a legal means...

    There is no reason that, aside from the LOS rule, that model flying should be any more restrictive than ultralights. They carry no passengers and are well below the size and weight of an ultralight....

    The key to any of this, wind or not, is learn why airplanes react the way they do to both our inputs and mother natures. Once you understand that the rest becomes just a matter of determining what...
