    Needing a leak is a really poor reason for landing an aircraft. Why not make provision for in-flight relief?

    It's forecast to drop to a bone chilling 52 deg F tonight but warm up to about 82 deg F tomorrow. I don't know if I'll ever see sea level density altitude or the performance that goes with it....

    I like to see how you make a working weight and balance spreadsheet with only two columns.

    You only have mass and CG. Where does the arm go? Where does the description of the line item go...

    I created weight and balance spreadsheets for my racing sailplane (variable wing and tail water ballast) and for my FX-3. I have found both to be very useful. Nothing obscure but they do require...

    No, you have misunderstood the discussion. Gauges are manufactured with 0.040 or 0.060 orifices between the input pressure gauge and the cylinder pressure gauge. This is the orifice size that was...

    You seem to be confusing an optional built in calibration orifice with the differential orifice. The differential orifice flow rate, and resulting pressure drop, is what determines the cylinder...

    Well that depends on the airplane and the seller. I would have no problem at all putting a potential purchaser in either front seat of my PA-28. I have a lot of time in both seats and fly it equally...

    Don't understand that. Why can't they order an 80 inch from Hartzel. The prop goes on the airplane very late in the build process. Cubcrafters will not sell an FX-3 with 8.50 tires and an 83...

    Yes, understand that. You sent your earlier reply while I was composing mine. I had simply forgotten about SI 1191 in the years my 0.040 tester has been stored away unused.

    What was bothering me was - why did I buy an 0.040 tester when FAA says I should be using an 0.060 tester. This only came up because my IA forgot his tester and we used mine for the compression...
