    Here's a few of my plane over the last year. Sorry I'm not real good at attaching pictures.

    You're mixing in stall speed and climb angle with VX and VY speeds. Although related they are different things. Can you tell me why climb airspeed would change with a load? Sure the angle and rate of...

    Nope, some Airmans association members are going down to build it before the show then flying it up and raffling it off as a completed plane. Personally I think it would have been cooler to raffle of...

    You're only at risk of a PIO if you hit your tailwheel before the mains. This causes it to "slap down" like you're saying causing a bounce. Even though the 707 is the opposite of a tailwheel plane...

    It does seem like a very high number of crashes for a single event. Valdez has been going on for how long and not had more than a handful of nose-overs? Even the slow flight event at Talkeetna was...

    For me the 3 point was easy to get the hang of initially but I moved away from it pretty fast. Aside from the "saving your tail" aspect of wheel landings, they're also just much more graceful than...

    Didn't Jim also do a PA-12 with a 180hp radial on it? I seem to remember someone around here was fond of that engine.

    PA-12 (w/ PA-18 gear) 3" extended should work for that application. I'm pretty sure they make 4" wide body 3" extended cables for Airframes and Dakota fuselages but you might have to call Atlee on...

    Ah, I see. When trying to translate 2d prints into a 3d jig it's probably easier to use a "golden key" fuselage that is known to be correct to set up the jig rather than trying to pull a "negative"...

    That's an excellent choice as well. Values are skyrocketing on good 170B's right now so if you can find a good one for under 70k it's a full on buy. Even with an O-300. The little O-300 gets a bad...

    Hate to say it but if it's been a whole year that this guy has taken your money and not sent the parts, you've probably been ripped off.

    Simple. Because the atomization of the fuel in the venturi cools the carburetor throat and induces icing in carburetors. A drop in air pressure does certainly have a cooling effect but not nearly as...

    Fair point. Just seems like the consensus is that 4 cylinder Continentals make more carb ice than 4 cylinder Lycomings. Perhaps this is not the case?

    Just a small point of correction. Lycomings still have the carburator before the sump so the air passing through the carburator isn't heated beforehand. I think the tendency for Lycomings not to make...

    When you increase the total number of dollars in circulation by almost 40% in the span of 18 months it tends to put a lot more cash in consumer's pockets and they are bound to spend it on toys.
