    "50% of Huskies have been on there nose as a direct result of toe brakes" That seems ambiguous to me.

    Interpretation 1. 50% of all Huskies built have been on their nose because Huskies have...

    You could use one of these to scratch your head but what other use would they have? They are both appear to be metric thread unlike the HP-2004 which is 3/4 -16 UNF

    Why do you say that? I find the brakes in my FX-3 Carbon Cub to be very progressive, adequately powerful, and easily controllable. I have no tendency to apply brake when I don't want to and can...

    You'd have an iron-clad case if the AD required inspection of muffler, pn# xyz123 but it doesn't. The AD is poorly written and should have had a better defined scope.

    As written the AD applies...

    I don't see anything in the AD that would allow relief for non-standard exhaust systems.

    I have seen reports that is good for 2-3 mph on an FX-3 Carbon Cub. They seem to cruise a bit faster than the PA-18. (About 100 mph TAS on 6.5 gph).

    I was told not to get covered gear as it woud...

    I really strugggled with heel brakes when I first flew a Citabria. I eventually found I could work them much more effectively with hard soled shoes rather than sneakers. Once I had become used to...

    My operating limitations paragraph is similar but not identical. However compliance with that requirement does not fix the issue for my FX-3.

    Suppose I put the airplane on straight floats and...

    I'll be interested to hear what answers you receive.

    I had assumed it would be spelled out out in the operating limitations but the only related reference I can find in mine is:

    Ok, thanks. I was assuming the test aircraft would be dedicated to the program and stay experimental until the program was completed.

    Just curious, but why wouldn't the noise test be conducted in the same configuration (same aircraft) as the other performance testing?

    What lateral float is acceptable in the front and rear stab location, and where is that specified? I have more freedom than I would like in an FX-3 Carbon Cub.

    ILS implies LOC and GS. Satisfactory GS reception may be more difficult than satisfactory VOR/LOC reception. It certainly requires more equipment.

    I have no ILS at my base airport but there are...

    I have had several near misses. Most were with power planes than nearly ran me down while I was thermalling in a glider. I have used PCAS, FLARM, and ADS-B In and Out. None of these reduced my...

    There is a huge range of capability for ADS-B In. Just having traffic depicted on a "tablet" may help with traffic awareness when workload is low. It takes a good aural warning system to...

    I have no idea what that means. There is no requirement for an ELT to transmit GPS position. There is no requirement to test that it does. If I use an SDR and, for example, multipsk to decode my...

    I would consider the ability of some, perhaps most, 406 ELT to transmit the GPS coordinates of the crash site to be a significant operational change. Unfortunately the self test of my ELT does not,...
