    Bungees work fine as long as you don’t leave them stretched in cold temps or transition from damp freezing temps to cold overnight temps. I used springs with straights and still use bungees with...

    I was serious about modifying a -12 seat. Heres a pic of the Airframes Cub seat pedestal. The tracks are simple. It should be doable to chop the back off a 12 seat and add tracks to use a sliding...

    It shouldn’t be difficult to convert your seat pedestal to accept an -18 sliding seat.

    I asked what the allure of a -12 was. There’s a big difference between a stock -12 and one that’s modified with big motor, flaps, big baggage, Cub gear, and big tires. Both have merit. The plane he...

    Re:tippiness. Is that describing how extending the lever arm on already weak shocks allows more movement of the plane when it hits bumps? Let alone the added unsprung weight of 35s, which would also...

    I can see where -12s would benefit from PStol flaps, too. No 6" gear necessary.

    The reason I asked is that the range of performance between stock and modified -12s is wider than any type I know. Most -12s fit somewhere in the middle and that isn't always a good thing. A -12 with...

    To the OP, what's the allure of a -12? Do you have some attachment to the type? Experience with stock -12s?

    All that weight on the nose? watching stall tests would be more telling than takeoffs. I have a big motor CG riddle with a 390 and my plane’s airframe is extended. I can’t imagine a 540 being useful....

    No flaps and original gear would knock me off that price myself, because I wouldn’t be interested in the plane as is. I’d rather spend more for a plane with a better equipment list. Its hard to...

    I use nearby water to gauge wind. When slow I don't trust the airspeed indicator to be accurate. For most landings I don't look at it.

    Love the turned up edges. My carbon floors were supposed to have them but they did the turn-outs on the side panels instead. Bathtub floors make good sense.
