Rough field operations?

Post by Stuart » Mon Apr 18, 2005 11:23 am

I fly at Underberg in KZN and our field is fairly rough. How would the Whisper handle this? I am a bit concerned because the wheels look a tad small.

The standard tyres on the Whisper are 5.00-5 which are fine for most fields but you can fit 6" tyres to those same wheels or go to 6.00-6 wheels if need be. This will however loose some of the aesthetic appeal due to having to use larger wheel spats. Aircraft like RV and Pitts use 5.00-5's and manage all but the worst of fields with those!
