    OK, don't all shoot at once - but what may I ask does "WAD" actually stand for? I have watched in envy a few years from half the world away and read your posts and look at the pictures and wish I was...

    I have a early J-5A which was upgraded before I got it with a O-235 C1 engine and PA-12 wings and cowling - the undercarriage is PA-18. Tailfeathers were the same as J-3 which I think are the same as...

    I have a J-3 with the Flo-Trol “Splates” which makes for a flat wing tip that almost no-one likes. It has a C-90 and Sensenich 76” prop, cruises 85 mph - so not a lot of speed benefit. There’s...

    Thanks very much for that easy to understand explanation - it makes sense. As both of these are low time engines (less than 300 hours TSMOH) its worrying, but it does make sense!
