Hi, I also fly ate 600 mt above sea level. My landing flap is about 65-70 and I use about 5 mm crow with elevator mix (about 2 mm up elevator) only for landing flap. I have a Jet Central Cheetah 160. For landing, on upwind I lower the gear, when it is down I go to take off flap ,and once in downwind go to landing flaps between 1/4 and half throttle depending on wind. On final I keep the throttle at about 1/4 managing altitude with throttle so that it touches down a little past me. When I know I have reached the runway I go to Idle, usually at about 2 mt altitude. Some time we have a lot of wind and to bring it in throttle on final has to be more, it slows almost to a crawl with no bad habits.

Regards
Eduardo

If you have 2mm UP mixed with flap you are running nose heavy.
The Viper’s huge tail hides this situation well, it’s why people have been flying this aeroplane nose heavy since it was designed.

Hi Guys,

Very helpful tread, thanks for that! Just a quick question, what size pilot will fit this plane?

Thanks,

I have 1/4 scale pilot from warbirdpilots.com The pilot is 15" tall and fits just fine in my Viper.
