My new trim tabs works 100%. Funny that it took me 150 hours of struggle before I realise to put in extra time to build the trim tabs.
With your and Russell's input ---it convinces me to tackle the problem.
Thanks a lot.

All I want to say is that I owned a long wing Whisper, and is not prepared to swop my Express for any long wing Whisper. The Express is a better dual purpose aircraft, handles "lekker" on the ground, land on narrower landing strips, fits in a normal hanger, and the glide ratio is high enough to give you the peace of mind to switch off the engine and glide. My glide ratio is more than 22:1.
I must admit that I still need a course in soaring. Maybe the weekend at Gariep will give me the confidence.

Johan,

I agree 100% with everything you said :D :D
We are both on the same Wavelength :lol: :lol:

Me thinks we are going to have to test our gliding skills against the Long Wingers to see what the Big Deal Is 8) 8)

See you at Gariep :P :P :P

They seek it here! They seek it there! Where the hell is ZU-OLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Had problem with left bank of Jabi motor CHT going through the roof. :( Will try again to test fly this week. :D
Just like to point out to certain people (Are you listening Bains??????????????????????) that first there were LOOOOOOOOONG wings then when times got hard the short wing was invented but I am sure if you spoke nicely Russell would make some tip extensions for you. :D
