    Do you remember the elephant joke? How do you catch an elephant? You dig a big hole and line the edges with peas, when the elephant stops to take a pea you sneak up behind him and kick him in the hole.

    Good luck my friend

    Nice! What is it going on? Is it the Ultra or standard 2 blade MT? I have had 3 MT props, I really like them.

    Tim and I took the short ride to visit Mtn Bob today. And since he always provides entertainment we rode the wheelers to some scenic overlooks of Lake Bomoseen, thanks Bob.

    The MT prop is on the M6, its an MTV-15 213cm long just shy of 84"
    I have about two hrs behind it now and I'm happy I did it. The start up and shut down is interesting it spins up almost instantly when the engine fires and stops like it hit a brick wall when shut down. When the throttle is fire walled for TO the prop pulls NOW. My seat of the pants analysis says that it pulls slightly better on roll out and out climbs the 81" MAC it replaced. The MT is super smooth out of the box throughout my rpm range, it really impressed me at low rpms. 1900rpm and 19" MP 98mph indicated burning 7.8GPH on a Lycoming O-540 I couldn't do that with the MAC while holding altitude with reasonable attitude and vibration. It does seem to slow me down nicely at flat pitch while landing and it takes less throttle to catch my Maule when the bottom starts to fall out just prior to TD landing slow and short. The MAC with spinner weighed 63.5lbs the MT with spinner weighs 46lbs so I took 17.5lbs off the nose.

    You must have found that on the elite Maule forum, you would never find attitude like that on a Cub site

    Fun weekend, Sat flew into the rain soaked pancake breakfast at Ctown with the wifie. Then we took the J4 and headed North to our friends camp on Twitchell Lk for the night.







    Water is down on Stillwater Res so we played around there on Sunday

    "Bombing of the Bismarck" in Oquossoc Maine this weekend (M57, 8B0) Aka float planes throwing grapefruits at a boat!! Two super cubs were in participation so I thought I'd share...

    The first was a very nice gentleman I borrowed a hanger from this weekend.


    My sister and I spent the rainy Saturday making a crude model of his gorgeous Cub.


    ...and for now, thats as close as I'll get to one!! I spose' the flight home in the skyhawk wasn't half bad...

    Did my first 8 landings in the Cub today, N6128H out of KGBR. I am sure this doesn't classify as NE Summer Fun for some of you all but it sure was exciting for me. Too excited not to share... I felt like I had clubs for feet trying to reach those heel brakes...



    Followed the days fun up with a hazy flight to Rangeley in the Skyhawk.

    My wife and I flew up to the 32nd Annual Bowman Field Fly-in, it was our first trip to the NE. We want to thank Tom and JB and his mom and dad for their hospitality at Cooper Farm, beautiful place! Tom let us follow him around for the weekend up to Bowman Field and then to the coast for our first lobster roll. Can't wait to get back for the WAD. Here is a video of our trip if your interested,

    Wes, I noticed that you have a Garmin 695/696 in your panel. Are you aware that it will work just fine without that external hockey puck antenna on the glareshield? My 695 uses only it's internal antenna and will pick up a good signal even when inside the hangar.

    But maybe he’s using the puck for sat Wx or music.

    That's good to know, it was there when I got it though and I haven't changed it. I was going to check on using it for weather but don't have any experience using gps for weather, is it pretty quick or does it lag behind?

    I've not used GPS for weather in my Cub but have used it on my sailboat with great success. That second GPS antenna is likely for the weather reception. You must have a 696.

    Went to two memorial services this weekend. Yesterdays was a local farmer who's family has been on the same land since the 1780s. British General Clinton weatherd part of a winter on their farm during the Revolutionary War.

    Today my wife and I went to an old friends service on Otsego lake. Gunther or Gunner as he was know was a neat old school boy from Mobile Alabama. He spent most of the winter down South most years, but I did get him ski flying my pa11 few years back. And the rest of the year on his wife's family (Goodyear) estate on Otsego lake. Gunner had a J3 and a Yellow Stearman for years back in Mobile. He always talked about getting floats on the cub and flying it up here in the summer.
    Every 4th of July we have a great parade in the little town of Springfield and afterwards Gunner would have a celebration on his lawn and fire his 3" civil war cannon 13 time after reading the Constitution from a soapbox. Today they fired it in his honor, he was quite a character and this old Yankee is going to miss him.
