Hello dear friends and subscribers. Welcome to a new video. It’s been several months since I uploaded something, that’s because of I’ve changed something professionally and
would not have had time during the week to cut the videos. But today we
go again. We fly today with the Dynamic WT9 to Eisenach.
I’m again not alone today I have a companion and that’s Anika.
Anika also has her own channel that will now linked where you can go to view it, she will also do a video about this flight.
She is just now holding the camera. In Eisenach I’ll show you the airfield, show the city a bit, on the way explain to Anika a little bit about flying, maybe you’ll learn something too. Well, we’ll see you in the cockpit right away. Have fun with the flight.
So, the ignition is off. Yes.
Rudder is easy. Attention. Legs free, legs apart.
The stick moves between your legs. Check the flaps position. These are the flaps here.
The flaps, which you also need for takeoff. Tank selector switch left tank.
Yes, it’s on the left tank Passenger briefed. The hood is
closed, the red ring is visible. Yes, it is warm here.
No, I’m more excited.
Brake set, maximum position Main switch on. That’s the yoke.
So that the rudders are free.
You will feel when you are in the way. You push me away, yes? Yes!
Fuel pump. Fuel pump indicator is green. Yes.
Fuel pressure is okay too. Gasoline reserve, left and right tank is full. Yup!
Fuel gauge test OK. Red lamps Net is green, yes it is fine.
Strobe on, the anti-collision light is that. The carburetor preheating is cold, yes. Engine is cold, gas idling, yes. Pull choke fully.
Down here and then the engine started. Okay, engine is running.
Oil pressure – green area. Charge control has gone out, very good.
fuel pressure is still alright.
Choke is already off. We’ll set the altimeter now. Okay, to the local altitude. At the tower is written 295 ft, but I know that too.
Now I have to turn everything on.
Avionics. GPS, on. Landing light not yet on.
Gyro mini, on. The radio on.
Transponder is on. Then the fuel pump off again. Now I taxi around the corner, so that they can pass behind us. Now we continue our preparation here. I will check everything.
Now we will put on the headphones. The microphone in front of the mouth. And say something! Yes, I hear you. If it is too quiet, you have to take the microphone closer to the mouth. Now we program our navigation system. I have prepared this. We’re flying right to EDGE Eisenach Now I will call the tower. Worms INFO – DMTNR. DMTNR, good morning. Two people to Eisenach, we taxi to 06. Now we’ll do our next check, on the runup. At the holding point. Set brake max. Gas 3000 to 4000 rpms. Then the ignition magnets are tested. Right magnet, speed drop, both. Left magnet, speed drop, both. We fly straight ahead and then directly EDGE. On the way I have a few small waypoints. That we fly a short round around the Wartburg shortly before the end. Now we check everything again. Cylinder head temperature is green. Fuel pressure is good. Oil temperature is still down, but already in the yellow area. Gasoline supply are both full. Set trim to neutral. Carburetor pre-heating is cold. Flaps on position 1. Ignition stands on both. The ACL is on. The fuel pump is on. The landing light is on. The transponder we set to altitude. Propeller position is on takeoff. DMTNR, ready for depature at holding point 06. We line up and take off. Wind comes easily from the left. Runway 06 is right. Yes, the compass is correct too. The runway is aligned 60°. Now that we are in the cruise and
nothing exciting happens on the way or anything to see, I to want
explain why in the last and in this video, there is no intercom audio. Well, there is, but listen to how bad that sounds. That is also why for over a year I haven’t posted a video. These technical problems, recording the intercom audio I also had in the
last video. I tried for a year to record a clean audio signal again. In my past videos it has
worked with the following setup. I have connected a USB-Microphone adapter on my GoPro4. This adapter has a 3.5 mm
jack plug socket with a connecting cable, an adapter to 6.35 mm jack and a double jack to the intercom, I recorded the audio signal. That was my first setup. This has worked flawlessly in all previous videos. But suddenly no more. Nothing was recorded. I checked all parts and even
changed them, but the sound remained silent. Since then I am looking for new possibilities.
Above all, the setup should have less parts.
So I looked for an Actioncam, which has a built-in microphone connection. For example, the Zoom Q2n. So that was a part less in the chain. But that
is the sound you already heard. Even if I turn the input-level almost to minimum, it sounds blasted. After further research, how other
Youtube-pilots do it, I will now use in the future instead of an actioncam, a
dictation machine for recording. Very important is that the dictation machine has a line-in input. So in the next video, there is again intercom audio, promised. But now for flight planning. The distance from Worms to Eisenach can be flown in straight line. You only have to pay attention to be under the airspace C of Frankfurt.
But no matter from which direction you come flying, so you would like to look at the Wartburg from above to take a nice aerial view of it. But it’s not that easy.
Because around and above the Wartburg there is the ED-R to 3300 feet, which you have to avoid. So pack a camera with a good zoom lens, then you can take a nice picture, if you fly along the ED-R. Unfortunately, I hadn’t my camera with zoom with me on this flight. This preparation will be getting better again. If you have flown around the ED-R you can in consultation with Eisenach INFO, when the runway 10 is active, do a direct approach to this, or join in the traffic pattern for runway 28. We are here at the airfield Eisenach-Kindel now. The landing fee was favorable for an UL, only 3.50 €. But beware: who stays longer than four hours will pay 5, – € parking fee. The airfield Eisenach-Kindel is located a bit
outside, so you drive by car 20 to 30 minutes until you are in the center of Eisenach. There is no public transport here. You can borrow bicycles, but then you ride one hour, everyone must
know for himself. We have a car here rented. Was also quite cheap and
with that went to the city and to the Wartburg. Eisenach is Thuringia, of course there you must eat an original Thuringian bratwurst and then it goes up to the Wartburg. Ulli, tell me, what are we doing here? We visit the Wartburg.
So we were just at the dungeon tower or what it’s called. We have not seen any info boards yet and it was so far only 1, – € entrance for this tower, no costs else so far. I believe to visit the Museum costs more. We will have a look. In the background you can already see the main building. Quite interesting: as you may realize, the Wartburg is the model for
Castle Neuschwanstein and Neuschwanstein Castle is the model for
the Disney Castle. We were just at the Wartburg. Now we have a coffee on the market place in Eisenach, before we go on the return flight. Quite interesting, I have learned a lot, for example, that Luther did not translate the Bible from
Latin into German, but from Greek. Besides, not the whole Bible, but
only the New Testament. He did that on the Wartburg. Another important person who lived on the Wartburg was St. Elizabeth, who lived here in the 13th century
and is worshiped as a saint, because instead of living in pageantry, like a princess, she took care of the poor, the sick, the prisoners and the helpless. Until one day she was expelled from the castle when her husband died on a crusade. Then she flew to Marburg. Not flown, we’ll do that later. 😉 There she lived until she died 24 years old, continued helping as a nun. That’s really interesting. It is definitely worth it to come to Eisenach. By the way, Luther has translated the New Testament on this desk.
Still something to say? Nice weather! Exactly, a bomb weather today. It is a bit windy, I also noticed in the flight, but otherwise really good. But Eisenach itself, the city, was seen in an hour. Although it has some beautiful half-timbered houses and so, but you do not need take more time. Then rather three to four hours for the Wartburg. Because it’s really big, it’s intense, if you join the guided tour and if you want to look at everything in detail, then you need three hours. Unfortunately, there is a small low-light
of the day. When driving from the airfield to the Wartburg, the Navi sent us
through such a small village. Attention: There is 30 km/h in there! I drove 50 km/h. Flash! I’m curious what’s coming, because with rental cars, I can not talk me out, it was not me. Well, let’s see what’s coming and how expensive it will be.
