Just fly faster!

I only knife edge at full throttle with the spark and habu and they still need a mix,,, with the mix they are rock soild and will hold knife edge as long as you would like. The A-4 was a scale plane and did more of an arching knife edge.

The best I have owned as far as jets go for knife edge has been my sapac T-45... it holds prefect knife egde with no mixing.
I hope my jet legend hawk is the same

No You used mixing It didn't need it I like the challenge of doing it without mixing. A long full length runway knife edge is the prettiest pass a plane can make I feel. The Electra is one of the best at doing it too. Especially when Rob does it 5' off the deck

I prefer a slow roll, the entire length of the runway, pretty!

Ron I think all T-45's are rock solid knife edge performers. I have the SAPAC and a Velocity RC, and the CMP T-45 and all perform the same in knife edge

Sorry to go off track in your thread Jack.
I sitting at my desk eating lunch, there is not a stitchof wind which is the first time in weeks. Blue sky and prefect out and I'm stuck at work. They even repaved oakdales runway when it didn't even need it... I hear it's unreal!

I'm going out tomorrow but I bet it will be a wind storm then

ok back to the electra
