    The tail is 25# heavier than I'd have guessed. What's it weigh in 3-point? Is your gear moved forward?

    I'm sure those engineers know more about other types of engines than most of us do. My 4-stroke Yamaha outboard and snowgo spin at high RPMs. That offers a whole nuther problem. Not insurmountable....

    Wyze offers an exterior model. To me it looks like the same cam with a visor, but I don't know squat. Except digital cams are temperature sensitive. Read the specs.

    Nope, but that's a testament to archaic regulations, nothing else. Maybe someday the government will get out of the way of private owners. My Cessna motor could be SO much better.

    Isn't a typical Supercub empty CG around 13? I can't remember.
