    I can see where -12s would benefit from PStol flaps, too. No 6" gear necessary.

    The reason I asked is that the range of performance between stock and modified -12s is wider than any type I know. Most -12s fit somewhere in the middle and that isn't always a good thing. A -12 with...

    To the OP, what's the allure of a -12? Do you have some attachment to the type? Experience with stock -12s?

    All that weight on the nose? watching stall tests would be more telling than takeoffs. I have a big motor CG riddle with a 390 and my plane’s airframe is extended. I can’t imagine a 540 being useful....

    The last set of EDO 2000s I bought I paid $5K. They weren’t perfect but they were fun enough. On PA-12 the keels were under water much of the time when I was solo and all the time with anything or...

    For my carbon floors bedliner would require sanding the surface to promote a bond, so bedliner is forever. I’m not willing to commit. I have a roll of aluminum tape with aggressive anti-skid. Too...

    No flaps and original gear would knock me off that price myself, because I wouldn’t be interested in the plane as is. I’d rather spend more for a plane with a better equipment list. Its hard to...

    I use nearby water to gauge wind. When slow I don't trust the airspeed indicator to be accurate. For most landings I don't look at it.

    The effect of tape is very engine/airplane/OAT dependent. Start slowly and find what YOUR airplane needs in temps YOU fly in!

    Love the turned up edges. My carbon floors were supposed to have them but they did the turn-outs on the side panels instead. Bathtub floors make good sense.

    What do you other CF floor guys do for traction in the back? My dog can barely stand up on my floor when the plane's parked.
