    A lot of the YouTube flying video's have a POV from pretty much the pilot's eyeballs, and it amazes me how crappy the over the nose viz is out of many planes. Good viz, it's something I look for now...

    West Marine is a good source of higher grade marine type stuff, and I seem to remember them having some power panels complete.

    One thing about patching bike tires that may or may not apply to a plane's tire: one time I had landed at Copper Basin, and then rode up to a high ridge line I had landed many times but never rode...

    I had a big gash in an 29" Airstreak, that exposed the cord but got me home. I glued a patch over it, using a standard auto type patch kit. But then it made a kalumph kalumph when taxing on...

    We had a Cirrus pop the chute (for some unknown reason, wasn't structural, I think a bad running engine). It got the couple down safely, they egressed, then the plane got dragged 1/4 mile until it...

    This clears something up for me: after installing cub style gear on my RANS S-7S some years ago, I at first used 1380 bungees (in addition to the Fox air shocks). Eventually, I grudgingly realized I...

    I did the same progression on my S-7S, and don't recall any added drag hit (though it must be there) between the 26's and the 29's, but a substantial amount of added "cushiness". This makes me want...

    I would have loved to have had the big bore Rotax I have in my S-7S, in my T-Craft, instead of the A-65. Someone needs to do that also.
