    I’ve joked many times that every landing is an aborted go-around. Sometimes it isn’t a joke.

    Most Alaskan tail draggers sit on big tires. It wouldn't make much sense to 3-point a Cub on 35s. The same is true with a Skywagon on 29s. If you compared my tail low landing attitude in my Cessna...

    From 43.13-2B


    Why do you need more CCA? An Odyssey PC625 has spun my O-520 to life for 20 years. Odyssey batteries are very impressive but EarthX is more impressive.

    The OP lives in Alaska. It's unlikely that any local Skywagon driver isn't familiar with what 900' looks like. Better yet that somebody already defined 900' so they don't have to guestimate. At any...

    For a guy with good skills and decent judgement regarding weight and weather? 900' is plenty.

    3521s work pretty well. 352s not as well. The smaller ones can't be closed so my airplane was a home for insects until I replaced them.

    The hole diameter is critical to make them work well.

    Jerry,

    You get METAR and TAF info to your Inreach, right? I would be interested in that. One of these days Iridium will turn on their new constellation but their faster service will come with a...

    I noticed his motor weighs nearly double mine, and my motor is moved back and the airframe is extended. It isn't enough. Just my experience. Y'all can reflect on your own experiences.

    Wing loading, power loading, and balance. That's what makes them work. That much weight on the nose will be a challenge. Extending the fuselage aft isn't enough to solve the problem.
