    I use FlyQ, not quite as many bells and whistles as foreflight, but less expensive, and if you are a CFI, great discounts on lifetime subscription.

    I havenít looked at that STC, but Iíve done a number of other STC deviations to allow them to be installed on similar aircraft with a DER approval.

    If you go with 6Ē wheels, the magnesium Grove will be the lightest. I just got a set of Airframes 6Ē wheels with double puck brakes, and they will add a little over 11 lbs compared to the 4Ē wheels....

    You can do that, but it still doesnít change the 20 lb baggage limit. Donít really see an advantage in making a bigger baggage compartment when still limited to 20 lbs.

    Iím wondering if anyone has switched to the plastic brake lines like Vans uses. Iíd like to try it, but not sure what tubing and fittings they use. I think it would be lighter than AN fittings,...

    When I flew a King Air, I even did the loading with gear retracted and gear extended. Pretty easy to get out of the envelope when you have a long fuselage!

    I think they used datums ahead of the airplane so it was all positive numbers. I never had any issues multiplying positive and negative numbers together, it's like 7th grade math.

    I can't say about CA taxes, but most states get a listing of all the aircraft registered to an address in the state each month and will try and track you down. If you register it to the OR address,...

    There is only one forward point for the J3, I gave you that in a prior post.

    Your confusion is all based on the datum being used. The TCDS uses the wing leading edge. Everything aft of the LE has...

    I didn't look at the W&B sheet you had, but it all depends on the datum used. The TCDS uses the wing leading edge as the datum.

    Getting a TC on the prop will be the key to approval on PA-12, PA-16, PA-20 and PA-22. Without a prop TC it would be forever limited to 2 place airplanes.
