    I never really thought about looking at the tail of the plane more. I don't know what I do. I think for the most part I am paying attention to the entire plane and more on the nose of the airplane. I wonder what most others do when they are down low?

    Everybody forms their own way. I just found that watching the tail you can see the plane starting to fall one way or the other and catch it sooner. At least that's what I'm seeing.

  3. I look at the tail. It is like balancing a broom, easier to do in close.
    I have tried others advice and switch to looking at the nose when doing it belly in. It helps but I cannot say I have found a solution that works consistently when doing belly in.

    Engine mounted, throttle hooked up. Need to finish out the ailerons and fuel system. Can't believe I am almost over the finish line!

    Trance? So maybe that could be called full on hover stasis? :geek: :attaboy:

    Fully assembled, dry weight = 8.5 lbs. Ran the engine tonight, started right up after I got the fuel in the pump. Have some things to double check, tighten up, and adjust. Then schedule a maiden. May be a bit before I get there, but we'll see. The tach is only temporary sitting on the fuse. Will pull it off before flying.
