    Yes I agree on the springs. Just no fin around then. Today I have one in my shed for a Taylorcraft that would have worked on the -12. The stock w/O-320 and factory tail I later flew did very well...

    No. The previous owner used the added STC rudder spring mod which was inadequate.

    Here's some goofy kid in June 1948 trying to decide which Piper to fly...the J-3 or PA-12. I think it was the PA-12 that day.

    I owed a modded 12-180 like akavidflyer describes. Quick off the water in 500' loaded then flew like a wandering brick with a loan payment soon due. Later I flew a 12-150 but otherwise stock. Very...

    In the video (set the playback speed at 0.25 in the lower right under Settings) at 0:11 sec the compromised left float sinks lower than the right and can be seen throwing a large side wake above the...

    I'd own one with long wings and a left side door. Nice combination of lots of room and reasonable speed. Over 100 on floats recently in Dave's plane with O-320 plus 8244(?). Turns 2300+ static. Wants...

    Most of the Pacers I've looked at have lots of wing washout. With extended wings it's even more noticeable.

    Pete has a CS prop and big mill to drive it. Speed the goal? Buy a fast low drag airplane. Floats? Drag hinders improvements unless float deck to wing angle can be optimized for design (done that...

    See Post #31 for a possible cause. Another: if the left upper cabane separates and the right tire hits first it'll pull the V away from the left fitting to the extent of the upper safety cable's...

    Back when C.G Taylor designed the early E-2 Cub he did the wing right. Then the J-2 came along and ever since we've been trying to fix it or make it better. J-2 left and earlier E-2 right.

    Pete's third pic shown in the intro is an open ended extended wing. I wonder if that's the final design (like Frank Knapp's Lil'Cub now has)? Above I mentioned sealing it...but maybe a sealed vs...

    Anecdotal conversations with folks that fly SEL or SES low vs high - light vs heavy - seem to favor more wing span and area especially at altitude. Makes sense that aspect ratio. I've had both stock...

    Here's a screen grab from Airframes (https://www.airframesalaska.com/PA-18-Strut-Fork-p/af89201-2.htm). Count 'em. Not sure if there's a range of options via manufacturer.

    I 'think' the safety cables are designed to work under tension, and not as much under compression. If an upper cabane tab fails (at or near the AN5 bolt) the opposite side gear spreads out under...

    My wife found the Atlee design unacceptable. Tore into her leg once getting out of the back and from then on we moved the seat forward and left it upright. A latch would be good.
