    The one thing ADS-b has proven to me in the short time I've had it, is that there must have been a lot more close calls that I never new about.

    I would say that guy knows a lot more about para-gliding than many of us do about flying in general. I can only give respect for pulling that off. Looks like he landed where he intended as well. ...

    A climb prop and oil cooler likely would help a lot. My father had a 105 Special (no electric, and flaps) for spraying use. It would haul more than a 135hp cub.

    Scrappy has a lot of horsepower. Possibly more opportunity for structural damage on the entire plane that may require a chute to survive. Also, he has a budget to manage the choices as well. Fun...

    Hi DA is big factor. There was a day in the Pacer where the 7000 ft runway in Rawlins, Wy was just about not enough.

    Balance is the challenge. A large diameter, slow prop is more efficient. The challenge is to match the engine HP to the RPM range the prop is most efficient. We used to have a Pawnee Brave (Ag...

    Is there any benefit of a -12 over a 150hp Pacer? Seems the mission would be similar and as you say a -12 is not a -18. You can get a lot of Pacer for the price of a modified -12.

    The crux of the matter is that the technology and hardware to make "autoland" happen for any aircraft has been around for awhile. Putting a servo on the throttle and prop do not seem too difficult. ...
