Reid, Chuckar is about 900'. I wouldn't land off the RW. The second field has multiple spots to land and the third has many spots to land. It was a fun day out flying!

Scott.

Default Holbrook flyin

After being away for a month, it is good to be back and flying again. As it turns out there was a local flyin planned for Easter by the group who started the ultra light movement here in Australia. It was Holbrook (Ah, google earth!), only an hours flight from Mt Beauty, so it was a great chance for us to load up the Kitfox with our camping gear for the first time and try out under-wing camping. This was timely as we are planning a trip through the centre of Australia in a couple of months time. The flyin was interesting with a wide range of aircraft, the weather was great and there was a lot of interest in our Kitfox. An interesting side event was a friend who has a property nearby was hosting his son's wedding - he decided to fly the bride in to the hilltop ceremony in his Super Cub so he asked Gayle to help her board while preserving modesty! I have included a shot of the W&B with alll our gear in the Kitfox - as you can see we still have plenty of weight left - which will be good for some extra water and perhaps fuel at times during our more remote trips.

cheers

ross

Lovely way to camp, Ross. Thanks for the pics.
I am on my way out now to do an Easter Monday hour over the farm to check the water and cattle etc. 08H00.

Could you please e-mail me that spread sheet??
I will PM you my addy.

Is that yellow one a Corby?
I really would love to get my hands on a Corby Starlet to do aerial ballet with.......
I am saving to snap one up one day before I get too old to fly.

That spreadsheet is on the Kitfox factory website under Technical FAQ; click on Weight & Balance Worksheet. Very hand, easy to use.

Hey Scott - great pics and looks like fantastic weather. You really do have some great destinations up in Oregon! Good to see your orange partner in crime there also! Give him my regards.

cheers

Who took the law tractor out and raked that gravel bar. I love the Blue & Grey paint.
