    Something I learned from my father's shop and have used twice: instead of building a bench up against a wall, offset it 4' away from the wall, now you can walk around it, put bigger then the bench...

    A similar deal but on more trusses can result in a beam trolley being used the length of the building. I did my 40' shop this way, it has a 4" I beam (light gauge) and two 1 K capacity chain falls on...

    A neighbor of mine has a son who is a high time commercial helicopter pilot, but with no fixed wing experience. He just bought a **** (I want to keep it a bit vague) and with an instructor on board,...

    It's a mild mod, it increases displacement but decreases compression, and changes the torque band in a good way. About a 10 hp gain over stock. It decreases weight by 3 lbs. and lowers cyl. head...

    Today's update on my fuel burn. I flew to a 7800' high ridge 23 miles from my strip, making 85 MPH over the ground according to the GPS (averaged out by flying the opposite direction, close enough),...

    We Rotax 912 fliers get confused by posts like this, or at least this one does, like the other recent one of 0-200s blowing oil. With all due respect, all long as these legacy engines have been...

    No need for your S-7 friends to go out of their way to get E0, they must be new to the game, the Rotax burns E10 just fine, I've burned lots of it and cannot tell any difference for the life of me. ...

    Really? Being able to dump a boat load of drag out there, in addition to any slipping going on, is something I'd be loath to give up. I'd bet they fly out of paved airports, I'm talking about off...

    I'd be interested in the Patrol LSA, if it had flaps. I really like the wing on that thing. Bob get's the "give it plenty of square feet" thing.

    I would ask myself (if I was you backpacker) while Steve Henry flies a Highlander (though with lots of mods) and not it's variant, the SuperStol. I mean he's doing the STOl drag thing, and hits many...

    Of course the structure is lighter/smaller diameter, the gross weight is less. Appropriate size for the gross. Cub structure looks wimpy to a Beaver pilot I'm guessing!
