    I should quit reading this thread. A few days ago I didn't think I needed a tent. Now I'm comparing Arctic Oven tent styles and am ready to plan some winter camping. It looks like luxury compared to...

    Dang. I'd really like to participate, but it is a long shot.

    FWIW, I do own a tent. It's a circa-1970 Sears and Roebuck "2-man" pup tent, all canvas, two collapsible poles and lots of tabs for...

    I appreciate these questions popping up. I think I'll add something like this to the frame I'm building. Looks simple and useful.

    I've always liked canvas tents for these applications. Heavy, but they seem to hold up.

    I looked around to see what is available now and ran across this--a 65 pound wall tent with stove...

    Long ago I flew formation with a bald eagle in a Tomahawk. I was catching ridge lift over the Bridger Mountains near Bozeman--throttled back to idle and slowly climbing. 20 feet off the left wing I...

    Wing spar concerns turned out to be overblown. I corresponded with folks who know what they are doing in wing design. They pointed out that my assumptions were conservative in the extreme.

    Thanks, Gordon. Maybe an Interstate or old Scout.

    I would like to see the specs on the Dakota Cub wing. That would help me understand what can be done at various points to address stresses.

    Therapy Project

    Right. I did a free body diagram and the biggest bending moment is at the lift strut. The bending moment inboard of the strut is less than half.

    Just to see if my approach was correct, I did the...

    3/32 birch ply both sides. I didn't factor that in, but I think it would only help around 17% max.



    Right. I was going to do that but didn't have the right size reamer. So the slow, hard way! ...

    Pulley Progress and Static Stress observations and worries

    I've built more pulleys and inserted ball bearings in them. That took a long time on my mini-lathe, but it was fun learning how to custom-make cutting tools and trying to be precise. FWIW, I overshot...

    Nice to hear from you, Lowrider. I've been wondering how you were doing. I think I flew over your place a month ago and didn't know it.

    Not sure. I went to AOSS's website and it looks like they rate them by gross weight of the airplane. I did notice that certain serial numbers were OK on Huskys at 2200#.

    Yes, welcome!

    A long-time member here, Tim, might chime in if he's around. He has a 2+2 that he's flown a lot, and very well. It had spoilers and no flaps at first. He added flaps.

    I suppose I should have been clearer. I don't know of any actual Cubs with Rotax engines. But some here have Rans or Kitfox airplanes with Rotax. Now I remember you said you have a Rans S7.

    I think around 1000# empty is very optimistic. It is similar to a PA 12 and most of those seem to fall into the 1100-1200 range. Flaps add pounds, of course. Bigger engine than the original O-235...
