Nothing much happening trike-wise right now. We’re both very busy with other things so the trike has stayed locked away in its garage.
So in the meantime, here are a few more pics taken by its former owner. Sorry about the rather low quality 😉
They give some idea of the excellent condition the wing is in. As it’s been stored away in its bag, even for several years, deterioration should be minimal. The danger for any wing comes from exposure to UV, and that just hasn’t happened with this one.
As you can see, instrumentation is pretty basic – just an airspeed indicator, altimeter, compass and clock, plus cylinder head and exhaust gas temps. It has both pull and electric start – reassuring to know, I’d have thought, if the engine should happen to stop mid-flight. Nice to know that if it should happen, on top of everything else, you wouldn’t have to be frantically yanking on the rope to get the fires alight again!
