Just how good are fat tires on our microlights? I was looking at old posts from Emmet with his S7 on the original smaller wheels & it somehow didn't look right now that I'm used to seeing those fat 26" Airstreaks fitted.
I'm keen on doing plenty of backcountry flying.
How much difference do they really make with the capability of our planes?
Is the extra weight, drag & expense worth it?
I'd love to hear from any of you who fly on fats & hear your opinion.
Of course I've watched ALL of Greg Swingle's videos on Vimeo after someone posted his "It's a Rans Man" video.
Then I spent the next few days watching over 60 video clips of the Ohio Bush Plane folk doing AMAZING things with their planes.
"you got to have phat tires" video is a treat.
