velocityxlrg300 Good news)

since back of lakeland the bottoms winglets as been installed plus the
1/16"dia rudder cable as been also replaced by the 3/32"dia cable on wing
parts only and also an aditional spring installed to increase the rudder
tention for higher cable resistence on the nylaflow tubing.both timble been
shorteen of 3/8" for the maximum rudder horn travel. for the attachement
between the rudder horn and the cable we use the old velocity method as
drilling and exagonal to insert an 3/32"dia hex.head self locking nut an
than locked with an other 10/32" seftlocking nut see sketch as
attachement.since than i been flying approx 8 to 10 hrs and the airplane is
very stable at the yaw and no tendancy to shift at the left side on low
speed climb after take-off. the right gear leg been replaced and after
checked the old one i came-up to the conclusion about the cracking and i
thing the cause was due to the first gear made with special high temp epoxy
and been cured over 400 degre farenheight so the eposy look more
brittle.now i use the original gear leg made with previous epoxy and it
perform well.
last week i been in touch whit scoot at the factory and he ship me a kit of
vortex generator for testing on my velocity,last friday night i install
those vortex generators on the wing only for the first test and i will
install also on the canard later.i did flown last sathurday and today and i
still more test to be done. the first result i obtain the aircraft is more
stable at low speed and i have more aileron autority and they seem to work
much smoother
regarding stall testing i am waithing more votex generators from scott for
the canard.as soon i complete all test i let you know.
the present generator are located at 20 % of the wing cord this is the best
location as per previous test been done on several aircraft.
