Trainers tend to be very forgiving, mostly because new guys over correct for everything.
When chipmunks dream:
Hoadie have you conned Rhino into molesting Vera recently? Actually where is he?

The story of the Chipmunk is interesting.  After the war, de Havilland in Toronto had a lot of Gipsy Major engines left over, so they decided to design a new airframe for them.

You mention Gypsy. 
There is a Gypsy Moth at the Confederate Airforce next to Falcon field that is powered by 572 cid big block Chevy engines...

Ahh the Gypsy Major, affectionately know as the dripsy major.
I think they were all fixed gear?
The regular chipmunk had just legs with wheels, but the supers were spatted.
