Re: excessive loss of oil during aerobatics

Markus,
probably you already found and solved the last leak, if not check the tach fitting: mine is losing some oil but changing the gasket means opening the engine and it's not worthwhile doing it

Re: Repairs, Upgrades and things to look for.

Usually you try to have the airplane balanced, i.e. no roll, without spades but maybe it is better not to fly without spades with the laser since spades are balancing the ailerons weight. Other thing you can do is to check whether the spades are parallel so if there is a roll it is not because of th...
