    Double Ender Honda Style
    Well, it looks like Honda got all fire up by Double Ender bush plane and try to make some sort of bush plane concept; I´m not too much into Fancy Nancy shit, but "SOME" of the ideas / features are worth looking at.-

  7. wolves200 added a post in a topic Avid STOL airfoil -some calculations   

    guys;
    I have a very short airstrip, so short you can´t call it airstrip, just a patch of grass, my take off technic works pretty fine, standing still, WOT, no flaps, start ground roll until I reach 35Kt full flaps and it will jump in the air shorter than starting the ground roll with flaps; conversely when I coming in for landing as slow as I can full flaps; touch down at 37kt (I´m heavy @$$pilot) kill the flaps and it will stay on the ground; if I leave the flaps on, I will be hoping along until I run out of space.-
    Playing with the flaps does have a good effect on short take off and landings.-
    Though I would love to try the suggested modifications of Riblett on the undercamber to improve cruise speed without sacrificing the take off roll.-
    Regards

    Hello Turbo;
    Some time ago there was a discussion about a better airfoil and the usage of the VG on the bottom of the wing, one member tried it without luck, however there is a letter from Riblett  saying that Avid airfoil will not sacrifice STOL performance taking the bottom section of Riblett GA35-614; where the top of the wing remain untouched (Avid original airfoil) and the bottom will have same as GA35-614.
    I have not heard anyone that has applied this modification to the bottom of the wing, but as it looks like will give the best out of the 2 worlds with little modification to the wings.-
    Regards

    p.s. here is the link to the discussion including the letters (pictures) in question.-

    I have a model B, and all what I can say is that Avid is a pretty little airplane, only complain I will make is that leg room is a problem, I`m 180cm tall and have problems with the pedals and placing my feet correctly, one time I did a ground loop without impacting anything simply because while applying brakes on a my short strip the tip of my right toe(shoe) got caught in the framework and I though I was braking but I wasn´t so I did a left hand ground loop.-
    I´m hesitant to go for the bush gear because it´s taller and I recon it will take less to bend the legs;
    are you going to install all the mods you had in the B model? such wingtip vortex, etc, etc, etc??
     
    regards
