    Hello to all Stearman pilots,
    can you give some hints on how to set up the rudder throws for the PT-17? Manual and videos are not speaking about this topic. The max. throw can be set as needed – I know. But it would help to at least know a rough start point for the airlerons differential deflection (I can’t find the right english word).

    Another point I would want to ask is the sink rate when cutting or almost cutting the throttle. Can it got down a nice “steep” angle without air brakes or is it a good idea to have a switch set to raise the ailerons for descent?

    The background is that I have to use a narrow road for takeoff and landing with even one traffic sign “in reach”. The better it’s controleable during landing, the higher the chance it will survive the first flight.


    Yes, it has become the sad fact of our society that although some benefits of social technologies and
    site, they are isolating us from all our surrounding. Its proper solution in my point of view is that we should avoid its excessive use.


    That is the place these proposals become an integral factor. They are great and sensibly safe qualities to use in most model planes. The thought is to get into and out of the air safely. After that, you will need to alter the qualities up or down as required. Assignment-land
