    Look at the top track, you should find one or two small screws in the slot. Remove screws tilt windows out and remove.

    Depends on mission, I think they would make great trainers. It might just be the ticket for saving airports from the noise issue. Perfect for 1 hr sight seeing tours also.

    I spent 1 1/2 years looking at cubs before I got mine. Having a new fuselage on a 1951 cub was a huge selling point. Nothing wrong with a properly repaired/rebuilt cub but that "properly" part may...

    I would think it might help a bit with top end speed. It just turns a slotted flap into a plain flap. You will have better lift with a slotted flap. This should add more drag but reduce lift....

    Without the bar in place it is pretty easy to move the side of the fuselage in and out. I have had dogs get under it and lift it up when flying, plane did not fall out of the sky but for rough...

    I think Oratex is a good tough fabric and for some might be the right answer, however. Things to think about. The glue turns brown after a while so if you have ANY that seeps out the edge of the...

    If you do not plan on flying it I would leave covers off the plane. One little bit of sand on the windshield cover will scratch the piss out of it over a winter. I have seen lots of paint/fabric...

    I would pick a system that you have easy access to materials when future repairs are needed. Go to your local shops and see what they are using. Nothing worse than have to wait a 4-6 weeks and pay...

    I think that is an excellent design. If you have a light onboard air source you could adjust for a low tailwheel on takeoff(better AOA) and high on landing to help absorb shock (great with slats). ...

    The clamp won't, however the front part of the step will (pod will have to be notched). The step itself can have interference with opening the pod door.

    Check the engine mount rubbers. Mine had a lot of sag at 1,000 hours. I gained 3 mph when I put in new ones. It is a thrust line issue.
