    I have to try the trim trick. Obviously it's making the H-stab into a makeshift airfoil. Curious to see if I can get anything out of it. Of course it's only going to work (if it does) on a trimmable...

    I'm not messing with it! Its Aerothane, and it's not a lot of fun to work with after the fact. Finish /paint is a place I can get in trouble real fast. I'm happy with it as is.

    Wendy, I was going to go with little numbers on the tail, but all that white empenage looked barren in my layout drawings. Probably a dumb reason, but it's done now. And Gordon is right (for once),...

    Here's a quasi-related question. What's the advantage of a 35" tire (ABW) on a 10" wheel over a 31"/ 6" combination? They both have the same sidewall height, which is where the flexibility comes...

    3+3 is good for O-360 installations, but for a 320 Cub I feel the same as Steve, don't move it forward. The tail gets heavy.

    Yes, something's not right. Carb heat (assuming everything's as it should be) will cause a considerable drop in EGT and RPM. At cruise, an unnecessary application of carb heat gives me a drop of...

    I'm looking forward to hearing some comparison numbers of the 84/36 vs the 82/42. Static, ROC, cruise speed vs. RPM etc. Do you have a 150 or 160?
