    The attractive attributes for the perfect second plane are very different than the perfect only plane. That’s my story, anyhow.

    I’m a fan of another 6-place kit plane on the market.

    Ski failure is the first thing most of us Skywagon guys thought of. There's a historical precedent and initially this report sounded familiar. Obviously there's more to the story.

    Just glanced at Amazon Prime. Owden letter and number punch stamp kit is $16.90. More than good enough for a data tag.

    Comparing my McCauley C401 prop blades to my Whirl Wind 200A? The difference is staggering. My Cub’s prop blades are probably 50% wider. Thicker. Significantly different twist. Scimitar shaped with...

    I have 9 six tube T8 fixtures. I replaced the T8 fluorescents with LED tubes that didn’t require me to fiddle with ballasts. Stunning reduction to my electric bill. If only I could fix the gas bill!

    Backcountry slats are open to some degree pretty much all the time. The amount of open depends on AOA/airspeed or some other magic I don't understand. I was never impressed with the super-high AOAs...

    Hydraulics shops use JIC fittings because they’re steel. AN fittings are aluminum. I order AN3 or 4 and get steel fittings on the hoses. I’ve had no issues mixing the two.

    Installing slats moves the aft CG limit 1”. This airplane likes weight aft. I keep about 50# of stuff shoved all the way back to make it more comfortable to fly. Taking a dog makes it even better....

    My happy place. But mineís a toy box, not a tool for work. I have a big shop and no desire to hang out there. Big difference and perhaps a factor to consider.
