    Bearhawk Builder,

    Here’s a snapshot of my original Pitot and Static lines. I abandoned the Pitot when I added my Garmin AOA probe. I like these in the jury strut better than the Univair part. I...

    I don’t think your AOA indicator will work properly if the static pressure rises with increasing AOA.

    Outflow through the cowl cheeks on a standard Cub cowl would interfere I’d think. I used my original static line that Mike brazed into the forward left jury strut. It seems to work fine even with...

    The temp range and area of the heat gun makes it difficult to use for large areas, and the likelihood of the finish looking like crap afterwards is high. When the fabric shrinks the coatings donít,...

    I’d sure like to hear your thoughts about your project. And about your engine and panel choices. Best wishes for a smooth completion!

    Everything I know about making sausage I learned from my wife’s surrogate grandma. She turned her nose up at all the natural casings we found in the valley. Maybe it was a bad week. Making sausage is...

    You guys are funny. Eating commercial sausage and you’re worried about the casing? Hell, eat the casing and toss the stuffing! I don’t eat mystery meat but when I make sausage I use cellulose, and...

    I hope the second airplane survived it. It isn’t inconceivable that a guy could be missing and nobody knows it yet.

    If the fix is simple the seller should fix it. I wouldn’t buy it unless the engine was discounted as a core.

    In my 180 I’ve added an approved gross weight increase and an approved engine-prop upgrade. Nothing in the docs say the Vx or Vy change and nothing in my flying before and after indicates they should...

    This website doesn’t like something about me. Different homes, different routers, and lots of times the site stalls when loading. I change my phone or tablet to 5G and it works great. In my normal...

    When you build a plane that didn’t exist before the decision of the N number is almost as difficult as deciding on a paint scheme. Sorting through the available numbers was fun.

    My N numbers have been factory assigned. Apparently they got blocks of N numbers for different planes and production years. My old PA-12 was 3453M and I often see other -12s with similar numbers....

    Make you own as big as the tube compartments allow. My door is top hinged and I wish it was hinged on the forward vertical edge instead so it'd blow closed in flight. A neighbor waved me off a...

    You purists go ahead and pass on buying tickets. I’d love to add an FX3 to the collection!

    Don’t forget to plan for a fuel pressure gauge, which means putting a sender unit in the fuel line after the mechanical pump. I didn’t do one initially and added it later. It would have been easier...
