Well, I finally got around to my first
flight of 2022 this afternoon. It was a beautiful day to
fly, and I decided to try mounting a video camera to the
lower wingtip of my canard, so you can all see for
yourselves if you wish.
I have left some superfluous taxing in
the video, so that you taildragger folks can see why the
standard gear would not be a good idea a my home field. I
also have left in my runup, take off and landing, so you
can get a feel for my homefield in all phases of flight.
Mack Mesa 10CO, is like Goldilocks:
Land too short, it is no good. Land too long, it is no
good. Land just right (as in the video), it is…well…just
right 😊. The scenic part
starts around the middle of the video and obviously the
take off is near the start and the landing is near the
end. Wear your headphones or have good speakers so you
can hear the silky, throaty, rumble of my six banger!
I am still learning how to use the
camera, so my videos should improve in the future.
Cheers and happy flying in the new
Jay Scheevel Tri-Q2 N8WQ 200 hours.
