< Why yes, yes I do all my flying at 20 mph. Isn't that what Lazair low'n slow flying is all about? Of course, for cross countries I power up to a whopping 38. But where the Lazair shines the best is in the low 'n slow role. I just love checking things out at Lazair speeds. You not only see the forest, you see the trees. In fact, you see the tree and fly around it. >



Mark,

I know what you mean! For a couple years I flew an Avenger (now called Hurricane) fat UL. It had 54hp, was very heavy but very strong and had powerful flight controls, so it was quite a different animal from my potato chip of a series 1. I thought it would be a good move up, and it was a better "club plane", but I became disenchanted with it rapidly. It was much too heavy to feel like a true UL, and yet only had half the speed of a real light plane while burning tons of gas.

Many times late in the day, when I would be returning to my field and on long final, I would find myself overpowered by the feeling that I wanted to be in my old Lazair - just floating along on that buoyant wing as nothing else can. Whether it's floating along at 20 mph just over the trees or fields, or making ridiculously tight turns at WOT, or flying along for ten minutes with a hawk just off my wingtip, or ridge soaring with the engines off, or stuck at 6ooo feet for an hour without moving - there's nothing quite like our Lazairs!


Thanks for your pictures and stories. They definitely bring back vivid feelings of flights gone by.

Chris,

Well I'm afraid I can't be of much help. I think Mike McKusick made an instrument pods awhile back, but I don't know if he still does. Mine is not for sale at this time. Maybe George or Shannon know another source for instrument pods.

Sorry I couldn't be more help.
