    My CFI always insists we come to a full stop, retract flaps, and reset trim when we leave the runway with the 180. It is a very good habit to get into, especially if you are moving fast and trying...

    We could use some hard numbers. What is the RPM DROP when you pull carb heat at 1800 RPM and 2400? If you have a 4 cylinder EGT/CHT how many degrees does the EGT change before you get first...

    Look at the top track, you should find one or two small screws in the slot. Remove screws tilt windows out and remove.

    Depends on mission, I think they would make great trainers. It might just be the ticket for saving airports from the noise issue. Perfect for 1 hr sight seeing tours also.

    I spent 1 1/2 years looking at cubs before I got mine. Having a new fuselage on a 1951 cub was a huge selling point. Nothing wrong with a properly repaired/rebuilt cub but that "properly" part may...

    I would think it might help a bit with top end speed. It just turns a slotted flap into a plain flap. You will have better lift with a slotted flap. This should add more drag but reduce lift....

    I think Oratex is a good tough fabric and for some might be the right answer, however. Things to think about. The glue turns brown after a while so if you have ANY that seeps out the edge of the...

    I think that is an excellent design. If you have a light onboard air source you could adjust for a low tailwheel on takeoff(better AOA) and high on landing to help absorb shock (great with slats). ...

    The clamp won't, however the front part of the step will (pod will have to be notched). The step itself can have interference with opening the pod door.

    Check the engine mount rubbers. Mine had a lot of sag at 1,000 hours. I gained 3 mph when I put in new ones. It is a thrust line issue.
