    Not to hijack this thread, but you mentioned Atlee giving the X brace stc away. The cheapest I find this stc for now is $245. I have no problem spending that for a mod that is that important, but is...

    With the 10" rims there is about 25" more rim to bead distance than on the 6" rims. Probably makes a little less chance of the tire slipping on the rim.

    Just just my two cents concerning top tank access or bottom. Our bearhawk has bottom access, our supercub has top access. I prefer top access. I would much rather gravity helping me putting the tank...

    I guess your experimenting is a start. Maybe find out what kind of adhesive was used on the Tiger or some of the other airplanes that use adhesives. I know there is also an aluminum stock trailer...

    Yes, the Sidney airshow is one of the best with top performers that I have been too. It is really a fun airshow. One of the few where you get to visit with the pilots. N3689A puts a lot of work in...

    That might be a question for the designer. I know flush rivets when dimpled are stronger. Did the designer figure that in when he designed the airplane and use less rivets? Personally I would go...

    Bob Barrows Bearhawk has an .032 aluminum floor. Like Jason said, it rattled like a beer can. Before I put my floor in, I glued a 1/8'' laminate floor underlayment to it. Doesn't rattle. Easy to...

    Lowrider, the flap ribs on my Bearhawk are .025 2024 T3 and they go to 50 degrees. I think .032 would be overkill for your LSA.

    Bill, one thing, just so nobody misunderstands, the gap seals that I mentioned were on my Bearhawk. It is way more sensitive than our Cub. Even it was really nice until at gross.

    One thing to think about if you are contemplating putting a 320 in the LSA. As a rule nobody builds one of Bob's designs as light as he does. Looking at the flying Bearhawks and Patrols out there,...
