Ramon at the Controls

Here I am sitting at the controls with the engine revving up. It ran real well except at full throttle - we eventually had to change the carburator. But for these first flights I just flew at partial throttle.

Just moments after this picture was snapped, I pocketed my reading glasses and put on a military helmet.

This Quicksilver is a fairly old model; it is single-seater and has the Rotax 377 engine. It is not a powerhouse, but is very economical!
