    The steer used his nose, guess he didn't like the way it smelled, from his reaction. The others were smart enough to have him be the e fence dummy.

    I wash my plane maybe twice a year, whether it needs it or not. So, not a squeaky clean plane type here, far from it, but my experience with cow crap is once it's dried, the only way to get it off...

    Not even close to turning into a pissing match, it's all good! IF it was a permanent arrangement, the fence would be a "real" fence, but it's just for this fall, then it all has to come out, 1/4...

    The RANS S-20, a side by side design, uses the exact same wing as my S-7, you can imagine my chagrin when word filtered back that the chubby 20 is a bit faster than my svelte 7.

    It HAS TO help a little bit is my thinking, even if it's not apparent on the ASI, it gives me a warm fuzzy feeling, even if it's half a MPH, and a tiny bit more range/duration/glide. I am trying to...
