    Thanks, I agree the ventral fin is less appealing. I guess my question wasn't worded correctly.
    I understand the desire for increased total vertical tail area, especially when on floats for...

    Is it just an optical illusion or is the rudder oversized? If oversized, have you found a need for more rudder or was this just a means to increase the vertical tail area? Was there a consideration...

    Do you think it warmer or just not snowing as much as it used to do? After all glaciers are just big snow banks.

    You need to fly and become familiar with a Twin Bee to learn what it will easily do.
    Also bear in mind that both airplanes were at minimum weights.

    I had the fortunate opportunity to fly that Nomad. It's surprising it didn't catch on in the part 135 community.

    Thanks for this picture E, never saw it from this perspective. My recollection is looking out the right rear window at the Cub's unsuccessful attempt to keep up.

    That is an interesting comment. I think he misspoke. I can understand the slats enabling the wing to be able to provide 64% more lift in a certain situation. I can not see the structural strength in...

    You could stick some teflon tape to each slat bracket. I used this on the bottom of the wing trailing edge to prevent chafing of the fabric on the top of the flaps. It works. Stick it on before you...

    What does the spark look like?
    A fat blue spark?
    Or a thin weak yellow spark?

    Should be fat bluish.

    The fix if not, can be the points are not set properly in relation to E-gap. OR the...

    Wow! What do they charge per hour, $530?
    A new installation of EDO 2000s including assembly right out of the crates is 8 hours. Except on a Husky which is twice the time.

    Unless you have pin holes in your welds, oiling the insides won't make any difference being on floats. The tubes rust from the outside in. If you have pinholes the oil will leak out the holes.

    And there have been some which came from the factory with a hole in the cowl where the hose sticks out for just the purpose of conveniently draining the oil. Tri-Pacer or Colt? I can't remember which.

    My comment was not related to use of the airplane, only the storage of it when not in use. I notice you have a nice hangar to keep your planes inside.
