    I’m a fan of a couple of boxes of granola bars and a tin of Spam. To require a gun to eat is very highly unlikely. Plinking to pass time? That’s always fun. Maybe a 10-22 is in order.

    How do you sign off Summits on a standard category airplane? Trickairs are approved. Summits aren’t, right?

    I glanced at Zlin’s website. Lots of marketing-based talk and nothing technical. Wingspan? Wing area? Absent. They clearly state it’s built for the LSA market. That puts it into a very limited market...

    Slots are fixed. Slats are variable. My Cub has slats. They operate with air pressure. Open when needed, closed when not. They’re incredible. Flying a 2000# plane with full control authority at <30...

    Innovation? It’s a scale model of a Mackey SQ-18 with some minor tweaks, like electric slats, and that’s an innovation most bush fliers wouldn’t want. Time will tell whether it makes an impact or a...

    I’d sure like to try my Cub on floats, but there’s a lot more to it than just slats. I’d also like to try a mostly stock Cub with the AOI increased a few degrees on floats. I think that would be...

    Interesting. Mine open 2-7/8”. I just measured them.

    3-4 years ago a slat kit was $4K from Backcountry Supercubs. No idea what they are these days. Carbon Concepts sells a CF slat kit now, too.

    If nobody answers first Iíll be home tonight and can take whatever measurements you need. Here are a couple of pics. We modified a couple of stops to allow gust locks at each slat. Highly recommended!

    There’s a G3X module that does lights, too.

    I think VP offers a backup battery separately. I used a TCW IBBS. I routinely update my G3X without using the aircraft battery. It also buffers power...
