    Yeah, I think that's the issue, Garmin Pilot will only work with Garmin brand ADS-B in receivers like your GDL. GDL's use a bluetooth signal as far as I know, but I don't own one. Foreflight will...

    I have tried both but there are 2 big reasons foreflight still wins:

    1. Garmin pilot will not work with wifi based ads-b receivers like Stratux. If this is not true someone please let me know.

    I'm not sure, I guess it could be something I could put on later since this is Experimental, but I'd probably like to stick with a constant speed (I assume all the cattos are fixed pitch, but not...

    Sounds very cool, I'd love to see a pull test on your rig! I know I'll have to pick my spots carefully with the penetration skis but you'll have the power to do pretty well with them on your...

    Sounds good, thanks Stewart! Seems like there isn't too much to worry about. Supposedly the 83" makes 5% more static thrust (1000 lbs vs 950 lbs) than the 80" at the cost of 2-3 mph top end cruise,...

    True, but prop clearance on skis should be even less than on just the 8.50's assuming that the tires will penetrate the surface of the snow.

    I'm pretty sure this airplane had the 83" prop when...

    Well, the factory is out of 80" props, so I guess I have to go with an 83" Trailblazer. Thanks for the responses, it doesn't seem like it'll be an issue with the 3x3" landing gear. Not sure if...

    Yes, the rudder is effective to stop the spin from fully developing but the left wing drop can be pretty immediate especially if you make the classic mistake of trying to keep the wings level at all...

    Sad. I will say, I'm glad I did a training course in my carbon cub before I bought it. The thing will get very slow with power on in slow flight, as in less than 25 mph TAS hanging on the prop,...

    Yeah, they already did a lodge on Kodiak last year, so I don't think it's a money issue, I think they want something less pampered and/or to kind of just be out there for a few days away from it all.

    I have some family from Texas that wants to do a "primitive" fly-out fishing trip with no lodge, they want to camp with a...

    Flew the FX3 for the first time today. It lives up to the hype. We were stalling at 28 MPH TAS at ~ 1850 lbs and 4000 ft if the G3X is to be believed. With the Acme black ops and 31's grass...

    Vx is the point of maximum excess thrust. Propeller effeciency/design and engine output both change thrust. Propeller engines make more thrust at lower airspeeds.

    ANC/MRI/LHD has almost triple the traffic volume of many class B terminal areas in the L48. I agree, we all need to tighten up and keep an eye out, because it sure would be annoying to deal with...

    Make sense, maybe that's why they bias toward wheel landings in the 7ECA. No flaps so the full stall pitch attitude in ground effect seems to be about 6-7 degrees maybe more? Just a wild guess but...
