High Marnham 2nd Test

Posted in EggDev on June 8, 2011 by eggmotor

08.06.11: Back in April I headed down to a field in High Marnham. This site is used by the CloudHoppers Club and I was also there with an unsuccessful test the previous September. This 2nd test flight, despite the bigger carb and higher compression head seemed to be a carbon-copy of the first test at this site. After take off I seemed to stop climbing and so again made the decision to abort. I really need to get back down to 14st (90kg) to stand any chance of decent performance, I’m currently around 15.5st(97kg). I probably would benefit from a larger wing too. My Kinetic is a ’27’ but I could do with a ’29’ size at least really.
