    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...

    The tough no-see-um's are when the other plane moves little sideways relative to the observer. Just get bigger until .....

    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.

    Seal the Cub upper flap fairing to wing and outboard exit. Drill holes along the rear edge or under the rear lip. Pressurize the inboard fairing entry with electric blower to energize flow over...

    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.

    These reports have value but do take some struggle to understand. Mississippi State did lots or research via Prof. Raspet, Cornish, and Bryant among others. Cal Center (pers. com. from Charly @...

    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...

    First try getting in and out of a one door factory Pacer/Tri-Pacer, especially as a passenger with the left seat occupied. By yourself it's not as much of a challenge I guess. I did it this week as a...

    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.

    I've had a couple cubs with that setup and always wanted to have them pinned so rear stuffing can't push the pilot forward in an upset. Getting out inverted or in the water would be tough.

    Charlie can you weigh the major components before assembly - wings, empennage, fuselage, FWF? Might be worth the effort. Not sure if covered or uncovered.

    I'm thinking almost straight steel tube (kinda' like Cessna) with tiny tire behind rudder. Lil'Cub has the idea.
