Au contraire, I currently own a Citabria and enjoy slipping the heck out of it.
Gross weight of the C-152 is 70 pounds heavier than the later C-150, and the 152's engine is heavier and mounted farther forward. So both climb and pitch authority in the flare would be worse with 40° flap.
I think he means it comes down like a coke machine, which is true.
I've done many slips with full flaps, in a 172.
I have a 57 why would you not use 40 degrees? Are you worried if you have to go around? You can do it. I have it just takes some significant forward pressure and getting from 40-20 fairly quickly. As for slipping I can't see it being necessary often. I would almost bet you could turn final at pattern altitude with 40 degrees and still make it in the first third of the runway.
I do love slipping a champ.
No that’s his phone’s AI impersonating him.
Same in my 1959 172 manual , but 30 degrees ok ?
it amazes me how many CFI's struggle with just flying the airplane the way the flight manual says.
I used to enjoy the "pitch pumping" and oil canning sounds from aggressively slipping with flaps in a 172.
Never killed me. Not even once...
Leaving 800 feet of the 1200...
his phone thinks it can think. J/K
I used to have a '57 172. Slips are fun and I miss that old bird.
If you can’t do slips how are you landing in a crosswind to the maximum demonstrated crosswind component?
A slip is all yaw and roll axis movement. The pitch attitude shouldn't change because you don't want to change the airspeed.
In a slip your airspeed indication isn't accurate.
And the main reason not to use 40 deg of flaps for landing is because the approach speed is so slow you need to pack a lunch or two to get you through to the threshold.
Also, so you don’t make the Super Cub on final behind you go around.
So true. It's all frame of reference and experience. And those who've only slipped Champ/Citabria types will likewise be shocked the first time they experience a full slip in a Pitts type.
You are increasing drag and changing your flight path (relative wind). Pitch attitude must change to match to maintain the same AoA.
Just not using 40 degrees of flap . I'm mostly @ 30 degrees .
Reason stated is @40 degrees it causes loss of smooth air flow over elevator , " burbling" as I recall was the word used.
