hi all, new here and a new owner with that said i have a few questions. i went ahead a got a pa-12 with a 0-320 vg's, pa-18 gear 31inch bushwheels, and a pa-18 tail. and flaps. my questions are as follows:
the bushwheels had a few spots,the seller forgot to mention till i got there, that have some cord showing although i know i bought an expensive toy im trying to avoid a new set right now as they are not cheap( good things never are) i searched and found a thread about line-x "retread" has anyone done this did it work?
compared to the plane i fly for work the stick is heavy, i expected this, but has anyone had any experience with the cub crafter gap seals
ive talked to a few people and all have said, along with a few threads, that i would probably benifit from the borer prop it does well as of now but as i get more comfortable i am sure i would like the shorter t/o however i do not really want to give up cruise it is slow as it is, i know iknow "what did i expect" anyway i was told to look into a 82x43 ... opinions also is there anywhere good to look for a used one? again like the bushwheels they are not cheap
i plan on landing on the sand bars along the river is there any good reading as far as do's and dont's?
i have been told i should have saved my money and got a true pa-18 but i like the damn thing and with a little fine tunning its going to be a great plane! thanks in advance for any and all help
