    I find it interesting how many different plane designs, Huskys and RANS S-7's to name just two, eventually come around to the fact that what they REALLY need is some derivation of cub style gear! ...

    So when will the 31" Airstreaks come out? Made for a lighter gross weight plane, like mine. I'm ready anytime they want to make me a pair.
