    The NX can be configured with the third wheel at the front or the back. The X doesn't have a nose wheel option and the photo in the first post shows a USDA crew in a tail wheel XCub.

    I rode through two ground loops in an Aeronca Chief with zero damage. A partner ground looped it later and the wing strut hit an electrical box between the runway and taxiway and broke one or both...

    My interpretation is that a "community charger" is one that is available to several users of the aircraft and which is borrowed for charging motorcycle batteries and never returned. It did take me a...

    Take a look at any CubCrafters aircraft. Not a single stitch but hundreds of fabric rivets. I assume it's a lot quicker. Don't know of any downside except offending the purists.

    My PA-28-180 manual lists the gross at 2,450 and "standard" empty weight at 1,404. The earliest W/B seems to indicate my airplane came out of the factory at 1,492 lb. I have never weighed it but the...

    I wonder how long ago that was. I'd "dump" my PA-28-180 with complete airframe logs for $35 grand today. First one with the money can have it.

    I have always assumed the 180 and the 182 had similar performance and useful load but it seems I was way wrong on that. I have a PA-28-180 (last year of the straight wings) and a friend has a...

    If you have a G5 integrated with your G3X system be aware of the following:

    The 9.12 G3X firmware updates any connected GTR 200 radio and any connected G5 as well as several G3X Touch system LRU. ...

    I have seen reports that some CubCrafers owners have tried it but no reports that anyone who tried it decided to keep it.

    Many, if not all, Part 25 aircraft drive the stabilizer jackscrew to...

    No, you didn't imagine it. The Dynon installation requirement seems to be far more stringent than Garmin's:

    Mounting requirements for the SV-ADAHRS-200: Must be mounted within one (1) degree of...

    Ok, but the GMU xx is a magnetometer not an ADAHRS. To the best of my knowledge there is no calibration procedure to correct Garmin magnetomer misalignment.

    What ADAHRS is that? Garmin GSU 25 allows a huge tolerance on mounting. Any error is removed by calibration. The reference angle has to be set accurately in each axis but that does not imply the...

    "No damage history" is entirely consistent with missing logs. The history of the damage is lost with the logs.

    No damage history means no history of damage. It does not mean there never was any...

    Depends on the model. My only 206 time is in a P206. Just like a 182 for right seat egress. Also just like the 182 when both have a top hinged jump door conversion.

    Garmin G3X Touch experimental firmware version 9.12 is now available and seems to include several useful updates. The one I'm most interested in is the improvement to audio traffic alerting. Based on...

    Only applies if optional auto trim is installed. I don't know how common that option is but it's not used by CubCrafters.

    With the basic pitch and roll servos the Garmin system gives a "trim...

    There are several items for which a CubCrafters FX-3 would be non-compliant. I wonder who originated that checklist and what authority it...

    Is it the uncommanded rapid acceleration you want to oppose or is it the resulting nose over tendency?

    Take a tall object with a small base. Make it move horizontally toward an obstruction that impacts the object at its base. The base of the tall object decelerates but the CG of the tall object...

    Power, actually thrust, increases the couple tending to nose the airplane over. If power helps prevent nose over I assume it is because of propwash over a raised elevator.

    Ah, but you are describing the gear as longer not taller. The advantage comes from moving the axles forward not from moving the airplane higher above the axles. The forward advantage remains in...

    I would suggest that, for an aircraft being rapidly decelerated by deep snow, the height of the CG above the point of rotation may be of at least as much interest as the position of the CG behind the...
