    No comment on the Atlee tanks (no experience with them)

    If/when you buy the Firmin pod make sure to ask about the jumbo lightweight experimental version. Definitely the nicest pod going these days.

    What an incredible area and those gyrocopters are pretty neat too. The only downside is a lack of rudder it looks like. With a plane you could just do laps but it doesn't look like a gyro can turn...

    That 14 year old is now 33 and learning to fly in the back seat of my own J3 cub. Wish Dad was still around to fly with his boys.

    This isn't an O-360 conversion. It's an O-320 dynafocal mount installed under a CubCrafters STC that they no longer support apparently.

    My question is what is the goal? Just to be able to get...

    Someone make one with a holder for a couple AA batteries. They're never close at hand when the ANR power dies in the middle of a flight.

    Scott and ABI 3200 heads are milled with an AN8 (1/2" hole) and then get bushed down to 7/16" for most installations. J3's, PA-11's and Taylorcraft have a tailspring with a 3/8" bolt which for me...

    Now the real question: long stick or short stick? Straight stick or curved stick?

    Kinda sounds like a Dr. Seuss book

    I'm glad I've never been put in that position but if (when) it happens to me I take it all back, it was the brakes fault!

    I retract my previous answer. I have to go with small tires flipping over...

    Closest would be 1-9/64" tubing. Kind of an odd size. The drawing I believe is for a J3 not a PA-18 although the sticks aren't very different. I was under the impression that a more common size like...

    If the comparison is on pavement the Bushwheels would be easier to nose over. Not only more rolling resistance which can pitch the plane forward on touchdown but also much more grip which would make...

    I would say it's not an apples to apples comparison. Typically 850x6 class tires are used on more established runways with fewer obstacles and not as much braking needed. Bushwheels are typically...

    You can justify to yourself (and many would agree) the reasons why it's better than a Super Cub but to buyers of super cubs it's still a PA-12. It may be better but those two numbers on the end just...

    That's great, thanks for the info. Guess I'll just go off the Wag plans then since it doesn't seem like that would affect performance much vs going with a Piper airfoil.

    ABI-30-60's have a little triangle bump in the middle back that is absent on the Cleveland 30-60's. That might be what is interfering on your ski installation.

    I could be wrong here but I haven't seen too many issues with torque plate offset (as long as we're talking "normal" brake kits used on cubs/cessnas). Cleveland plates aren't offset, only the ABI...
