    I found that heel brakes are harder to modulate (if that's the right term) than toe pedals. Might be me tho. It's just easier for me to retract my boot tip than pull back the whole foot and attached...

    I've "practiced" it on skis when heavy surface drag in deep snow can raise the tail. Not the same situation I agree as the rear safety cables limit nose down behavior. But a pre-landing prep might...

    It's a challenge to react quick......when the tail goes up so should elevator and power - easy to say but hard to do plus leg weight on brakes makes it even tougher

    Flaps enhance slow flight no doubt. More nose down attitude at same airspeed. When it stalls mid-to late 30's depending on weight flying at 50 all day is a realistic event. I liked the balanced...

    I put flaps on a PA-11. Added about 20#. Lowered stall 4 mph, but takeoff as noted above wasn't worth the time and cost due to drag and low power (90) to blow the flapped portion of the wing. I could...

    The C-150 seaplane w/ O-200 swinging a 1A90/CF75-35-38 range wants to see 2400 to 2500 static. That Sen AK76-2-40 I can run 2440+-15 static with the Stroker and max just over 2600. Apples and fresh...

    Best to compare the C-90 to O-200's performance with that AK76 prop.

    Accelerator pump has three adjustments. See MA-3-SPA Manual for troubleshooting and options. Page 2-3 and Fig. 4.

    Dan you might check out TCDS 1P2 for the 76AK-2-40. Sensenich didn't approve that model vibration wise for the O-200. Stated limits are, if I read it right, 135 HP and 2600 RPM Max Continuous. I'm...

    Some of that bracing is likely there to prevent fabric from bending the underlying tubing/channel during heat shrinking. Forms rigid triangles that offer support (guess)
