    I think you are looking at the wrong end of the airplane. The original 4 degrees of down thrust requires a certain amount of nose up trim on the stabilizer. This is called drag. When the thrust line...

    You two have my attention.
    It seems to me the tires with the larger diameter would have less spin up resistance due to the larger radius providing more leverage. This assuming equal air pressures...

    What is the source of these certified -18 aluminum struts? Are they an Alaska thing? I've only seen recent mention of a certified version without any mention of a source.

    From the picture, there is no need to pull the wing to get it to any shop. Fly it there, do the repairs on the airplane. There doesn't appear to be spar damage. Even if there is, it is minor.

    Joey,
    I understand why in some circumstances the ventral fin gets in the way. Thus why many take it off. This even though it is required on the type certificate. There is an STC to remove it by...

    Yes Steve, if on wheels. If it is crooked on wheels, then when floats are installed you will be incorrectly correcting an error. It must be right on wheels first.

    This sounds like they would be good candidates for a bedliner application from the start. Then as it wears down add another coat. The tires should then last forever.

    Where is the play? Between the screw and the yoke or does the screw move up and down in the fuselage? Two different reasons for the stab to move up and down when it shouldn't.

    Then when the floats go on you will know what to adjust to make it fly straight. Follow...
