    Well then it seems like a no brainer. Put the old tach back in and enjoy the improved cruise. Right?? :-P

    That number seems a little optimistic to me, especially for 31's. On 2000's I would consider it plausible but I have a lot of time behind that prop (in a very straight and well rigged 12) and haven't...

    Prop wash will make it go left to some degree, tip vorticies are too far away to have any effect. The seed will be way too far below the airplane. If you'd have done this when you started the thread,...

    I have to try the trim trick. Obviously it's making the H-stab into a makeshift airfoil. Curious to see if I can get anything out of it. Of course it's only going to work (if it does) on a trimmable...

    I'm not messing with it! Its Aerothane, and it's not a lot of fun to work with after the fact. Finish /paint is a place I can get in trouble real fast. I'm happy with it as is.

    Wendy, I was going to go with little numbers on the tail, but all that white empenage looked barren in my layout drawings. Probably a dumb reason, but it's done now. And Gordon is right (for once),...

    Here's a quasi-related question. What's the advantage of a 35" tire (ABW) on a 10" wheel over a 31"/ 6" combination? They both have the same sidewall height, which is where the flexibility comes...

    3+3 is good for O-360 installations, but for a 320 Cub I feel the same as Steve, don't move it forward. The tail gets heavy.

    That's it. Carrying that bit of power flattens things out and gives you a little more of a fightin' chance to grease it. The second you touch, stick it with a little forward yoke. If you come in cold...

    I'm looking forward to hearing some comparison numbers of the 84/36 vs the 82/42. Static, ROC, cruise speed vs. RPM etc. Do you have a 150 or 160?
