    Put your hand on the stick with your thumb standing straight up. Every control surface your thumb is “pointing” towards should be deflecting up when you point at it. Easy control check.

    I have no opinion on extending the leading edges, but cleaning up the dents and working over the leading edge on my ag plane made a huge difference in handling and performance. If I was determined to...

    Sounds outstanding to me, I’ve heard $35/sq ft down here for an insulated metal hangar.

    Just eyeballing the fuselage, it looks to have a stock chord on the wing? Seems like a good opportunity to build a deeper chord wing to carry the load a little better, the aesthetics of it might take...

    Has he flown the plane or just checked everything on the ground? I have a 182 equipped with the finest avionics Narco offered in 1977, and it has similar performance after sitting for a few months or...

    My theory is you either have an inherent trust of airplanes and their capabilities, or you fly it like it’s trying to kill you. So many of these accidents can be attributed to believing it has the...

    If it’s not making metal and the oil temp/pressure is good, it should be fine if that’s where it likes to run. Compared to it’s previous life, I’m sure that Stearman isn’t getting worked too hard.

    I keep my J3 at 2.75-3 qts. Had it get to 2 qts several times on long days, never saw a drop of oil pressure or high oil temp.

    I’m waiting for the day Gorilla tape comes in pinked edges and different colors, I’ll never patch fabric again.

    I don’t know how I’d get in a Cub with wheelpants, I’m not sure where I’d put my feet to push off and get in. I have a C85 stroker in my J3 and have to push forward to stay level in cruise. It’s a...

    I agree on the clean cockpit environment, that’s one reason I don’t feel the need for a helmet in a GA plane, but wear it every flight without exception in an ag plane. An Ag Cat cockpit is tight, my...

    -20. I bought it for a good enough price I can justify putting a -15 or -27 on it instead of throwing parts at the orphan engine when the time comes.

    Brought this sex machine home from Florida on Wednesday. 9 hours of bad air, Jet A pumps messed up at every fuel stop, and crossing a bay at 300 ft with low ceilings, but it was worth the trip!

    Secondary oil pressure gauges are one of those things where you shrug and say, “I don’t know, it was in there when I bought it.” That’s one I gauge I always like to have as analog.

    Could you build the covers stiff enough to have the bottom end uncapped? Built that way, they would be streamlined for flight, and be open on the bottom end to where travel isn’t a factor when...

    I use a funnel similar to what SJ posted on my 182, only I cut most of the taper off of the bottom. It’s just long enough to where it can wedge into the oil fill tube.

    Check on Mooneyspace, someone is bound to have it there. I too am a fan, they handle like a flying Porsche. If our turf strip was in better shape, I’d have an early E model sitting in the hangar.

    I repack the bearings every 200-250 hrs on my Ag Cat when rotating or replacing the tires. It doesn’t have as rough of a life as a full time rice plane, but I’d ballpark it at 1000 landings during...
