Re: 1st 2021 flight today.
I flew the TriQ 200 yesterday! Nice 55 degree day! I worked on arresting the descent on final after setting up the speed (100 st mph) with the elevator. Seems when I try to pull on the stick at the last minute to arrest descent it always slows me down (with the help of the MT electric prop) it gets slow and the nose gets to high and then it pays off with the nose gear getting punished by bouncing on the runway. So the moral to the story for my Q is something I heard years ago “power is altitude and elevator is airspeed”. Once close to the runway pull out the power. I did that and the landing was fantastic!

So that was my 1st flight of 2021!
Changing the oil in ‘er next week getting ready for “Spring Fling”! Of course there is a condition inspection due in May so hopefully SF can be early this year.
