ZUCZZ Posted August 9, 2009 Share Posted August 9, 2009 Hi Folks, Just a short note to tell you all that Jannie Versfeld has entered his mighty Cozy Mk IV.540 (ZU-DAR) in South Africa's Unlimited Air Race. The race is a closed course and is done using a running start, then you return at higher (just not lower) than your departure alitude. (Faster planes go first) He's hoping to do well and test runs have shown 200kt at WOT, how can we increase this? OK, since then we polished, sealed gaps and are trying to move the CofG back some ... (how much could we gain by the CofG movement? would you think?) (It's too late to diet, so the weight is going to be reduced in the plane ) Jannie's plane is fitted with VG's ... how much could we gain on top end if these were removed? Question, what is the fastest manner of doing a 180 deg turn. To us it feels like 60 degree bank and getting as close to the turning point in the apex of the turn... Any tips or tricks appreciated! Please tell us your opinions! Quote I live in my own little world! but its OK, they know me here!
