    If it is your first time on bushwheels, the first bunch of landing seem soooooooo smooth. As you get used to them you regain the feel of what the gear is doing.

    My 700 hour bushings looked the same as yours, engine angle changed 3-4 degrees with the new ones. I gained 3-4 mph at 2400 rpm. Might be something worth changing at 1000 hours

    Did they change the strut attachment point? If so I would follow the above advice. If they have the stock strut attachment you should be able to add spar length as long as the splice is beyond the...

    Every big game animal in North America can be taken with a bow and arrow. It is much more about shot placement than size of the bullet. Just saying. I have gone from a .44 backup to a 9 mm because...

    I like to put about 1 psi in the tire. The inner hole will expand and allow the rim to fit in easy. Really makes a difference when trying to mount up a set for a Beaver.

    Your stall speed is slower with power on. This will usually have the tailwheel a foot below the mains, and poor vis. The trick is to use the slip to help vis on approach, once into the flare wings...

    Another thing to consider is cold weather flying. Most of the newer small stuff I have looked at do not have much for heat and are not built tight enough for cold weather flying. Also you will need...

    I try to do all my approach and landing power on at around 1600 RPM. I usually find a way to screw it up a bit so I adjust as needed. Lately I have added slips back into my approach program and...

    He has the 370-380 temps at 2,100 RPM. I could see that happening at 2,500 RPM, but at 2100 he should be a lot lower even with the high ambient temps. I am not a fan of silicone...
