    Aeronca/Bellanca/Piper had a static port design like shown in #16. The holes were on both sides to minimize the effect of slips.

    My C-185 neighbor at the floatpond migrates to Florida yearly. His current concern is the rising cost of fresh oysters in the local bar. He gets no sympathy from the rest of us.

    I watched the videos and wondered why a STOL contest wouldn't reward the slowest entry for a given course? Isn't that the point of STOL - controllable slow flight? I know that's not the idea here.
