    I have Micro's on my 12. I realize you've never seen it. They came when I bought it so I had them replaced at rebuild. I'd love to fly the same airplane before/after to really see the difference...

    That last picture is too funny. We have an orange tabby (Rusty) and he is a total boob, a lot like what I see in that last pic. Quite the comedian and very affectionate.

    I'm in the buy it and fly it camp. The 200 doesn't have the disappearing cam issue of the Lycoming. I second the spin-on filter.

    The next time I need hydra-sorbs I'm switching over to AOSS. Has anybody tried to see if the airfoil covers will fit over them? I like the couple mph they gain in cruise.

    Hi Dan, I'm having a hard time tracking with up trim increasing your landing distance. The only thing I can think of is (with down trim) the horizontal surfaces are cambered like an inverted airfoil...

    A good friend has a Top Cub I've flown quite a bit, both before and after the 3+3 gear. With the O360 and borer prop, the 3" forward is a good idea, as it increases the tail weight and allows for...

    I've got some time in a 185, 188 and 206. They are indeed trim, trim, trim. A nicely balanced Cub spoils you quickly.

    In regard to landing, on a trim-tab airplane (182 for example) nose down trim will slightly increase your elevator authority by kicking up the tab and effectively increasing your up elevator. Of...

    "Betcha a nickle" its the ground wire where it bolts to the seat post, or wherever yours happens to attach. Been there done that.

    Thanks Bill. I had questions as to whether it was Kosher to simply throttle it down. Apparently the viscosity valve just opens accordingly as the flow is restricted. That should be extremely...

    You might be onto something but I think your scenario would cause it to crack at the strut attach point. A cursory "look" at the geometry and load paths in my mind makes me think the strut fitting...

    Bill, is this a diverter-type valve that circumnavigates the cooler, or are you simply choking down the flow? Also, is this in conjunction with a Vernatherm or a viscosity valve? Thanks!

    I like to cruise at at least 180 (airspeed I wish). I'd try taping over 1/2 of the cooler, and then see if your shutter doesn't have a lot more effectiveness.

    I'd say the wood grain was compromised (for any number of naturally occurring reasons, or while being dried) and over time the compression of the attach fitting caused it to pop. Basically just...

    That's for sure. We're seeing more and more ag aircraft with little chrome smiles around here because of that. I've learned the Garrett salute.

    Yeah but 4 tons? It must be some new giant Air Tractor we haven't seen yet.
    The story claims he was .48, which I think is beyond fatal.
