    Looks like it started off as an Ag model PA-18A frame from the rear of the top decks shape. The turtle deck arches are arched instead of flat back but they are not the normal type as they have little...

    I will say the Beringer gear is very impressive as to what it will do and it is certified so there's no waiting for an STC. As to how squirrelly it is on the ground in a wind, definitely more than...

    The legacy gear is only fatal if it's on a Carbon Cub. The rest of us dodged a bullet there!

    I'll have to do that. It's just going into the cold and miserable 3 months of the year up here now so beautiful warm south africa sounds nice. Yeah, it's a couple ptarmigan that I shot. I'm not much...

    You're mixing in stall speed and climb angle with VX and VY speeds. Although related they are different things. Can you tell me why climb airspeed would change with a load? Sure the angle and rate of...

    Nope, some Airmans association members are going down to build it before the show then flying it up and raffling it off as a completed plane. Personally I think it would have been cooler to raffle of...

    You're only at risk of a PIO if you hit your tailwheel before the mains. This causes it to "slap down" like you're saying causing a bounce. Even though the 707 is the opposite of a tailwheel plane...

    It does seem like a very high number of crashes for a single event. Valdez has been going on for how long and not had more than a handful of nose-overs? Even the slow flight event at Talkeetna was...

    For me the 3 point was easy to get the hang of initially but I moved away from it pretty fast. Aside from the "saving your tail" aspect of wheel landings, they're also just much more graceful than...

    Didn't Jim also do a PA-12 with a 180hp radial on it? I seem to remember someone around here was fond of that engine.

    That's an excellent choice as well. Values are skyrocketing on good 170B's right now so if you can find a good one for under 70k it's a full on buy. Even with an O-300. The little O-300 gets a bad...

    Simple. Because the atomization of the fuel in the venturi cools the carburetor throat and induces icing in carburetors. A drop in air pressure does certainly have a cooling effect but not nearly as...

    Fair point. Just seems like the consensus is that 4 cylinder Continentals make more carb ice than 4 cylinder Lycomings. Perhaps this is not the case?
