Thumbs up RV-4 Takeoff

Hi Bill.

In reply to your post. I didn't have alot of time on the aircraft at the time and it was my worst takeoff ever. I had my girlfriend in the back seat and if I remember correctly I only had slight down elevator trim. I jolted the stick on takeoff and got off a little too early speed wise; I believe it was around 60 mph. Had to quickly correct for roll to the right and put the nose down quickly. I believe the climb angle is about 20 degrees. I've always had that takeoff in the back of my mind and it keeps me honest now. The old saying learn from your mistakes.

I was lucky to get away with this one and haven't had a bad takeoff since. The photographer happened to capture the photo at the right time and it certainly catches your attention for sure. Hope this explains it a little better for you.

Believe my friend Paul Tuttle, he was there that day.

Some very nice pics.

Ron (post #17), I cannot believe your picture did not make the calendar. That is a great picture. Can you email me the full res?

Continuing the theme of photos of RV-12s taken from a very tall ladder:

I think this is one I teased Ken with - but Tsam was in the calendar previously, so I didn't expect him to use it.

How can the plane be at that angle of attack on take off if the elevators are completely neutral? Seems to me that you would have to have the stick back all the way to get that angle.
if he kept it back too long he would of stalled, correct.
once he got the angle wanted neutralize the elevator and up he goes.
