    Hi, this link doesn't seem to work ,it just directs me neck to the forum page.
    I've managed to get all the work done on the aircraft ,so she's ready for a flight now, the suspension leg on one side was bent quite badly so I've replaced that, the engine tickover was set at 2500 for some reason it's no wonder he couldn't land it, that's back down to around 1600 now.
    How do I get photos onto this site?

    I've had around 2:30 in the circuit now landing on a Tarmac runway, I can manage to get down without bouncing fine it's after that, I find it difficult to stay in line with the runway, is there some ruddering technique that works with the S7 that I am missing.

    Hey Andy, I like to use imgur.com for quick picture uploads....

    If you use the site, after you upload, you need to click on your uploaded picture, then right click on your picture, select copy image/link url (or similar wording depending on browser). The link has to start with the i.imgur (not just imgur.com) to be able to link it on other sites....

    For example, here is the link to a picture I just uploaded for test purposes: http://i.imgur.com/fquiep0.jpg

    And now I'll insert that same link into the picture button above to create an image link (it just automatically adds [img] [/img] tags around your link, which tells the forum to show the actual content(picture))

    Shouldn't need much with the 7 on landing roll out but....

    Not knowing how much tail wheel time you have are you familiar with the term "happy feet"? Basically you will want to fly by the seat of your pants and when you sense the aircraft turning tap that rudder pedal. You will end up tapping right and left (frequency depending on winds) quickly or as needed to maintain straight roll out. My aerobatic instructor also used the term bicycling the pedals. As you slow and rudder becomes less effective you can tap the brakes with the rudder pedals. Works for me........

    Here is a video that has some foot work in it.

    Thanks Glenn, I will give the photos a go.
    Thanks for the video link, yes he looks to be giving it some during the landing roll out, I did ten or so landings yesterday and had to pull the trigger on two of them before it turned into a deviation from the runway, I will give it a try being more speedy/punchy on the rudder,
    Thanks for your help.

    That worked (to click on it)

    Now you can wrap that in [img] tags or hit the Image button on the reply toolbar, and just insert that same link:

    Nice, Gratz!

    Looks pretty much like mine which is a from -97 kit.
