    I have, I would, and I do. I have also found a good dose of MMO in the oil to be great for freeing up stuck rings. I have had 2 cases recently where I've seen mid to high time engines with low...

    I had an A-65 powered J-4 based at KLAM (7172' MSL). Flying by myself was never a problem. Flying passengers in the summer was challenging if I had the added wing tank full of fuel as well. Also...

    It all depends on your budget. Those planes listed above are good choices. You can buy a partially completed Cub or SuperCub Clone for pennies on the dollar. Same for those aircraft listed in Don...

    I'd buy it and fly it. Nothing is going to fail quickly on the O-200, so if it has any issues, you can deal with them as they come up. But my expectation would be that it would be fine.

    While many will likely disagree with my actions, I had a set of 26" Goodyears that were badly out of balance. I cut up pieces of an old innertube and taped to the outside until I had enough weight...

    T-88 cures pretty slowly and is even slower if the temperature is cold. It's usually got most of it's strength to where you can unclamp it after 24 hours at room temperature, but continues to slowly...

    I got raped by Washington as well for bringing my airplane into their state for the short time I lived there. They had the state police patrolling the airports. If your N number was recorded at a...

    I have run into 7/8 spark plug sockets that had too small of a bore in the barrel to fit over an aviation spark plug. I just bored the inside of the barrel of the socket. Problem fixed.

    I know of an O-200 converted to an A-series accessory case that could be had for a reasonable price. While it appears to be recently overhauled, you could put your data plate on it, and a set of...

    FWIW, Anonymous mode will only mask your registration number for purposes of privacy from web site trackers. You still broadcast your ICAO number, so the FAA still knows who you are.

    The 1090-ES system is a RADAR transponder. The FAA isn't going to eliminate RADAR. The ADS-B system is to "enhance" radar. This was the next step after Mode-S, and they gave many of us a less...

    You've probably already done this, but I would verify the ICAO and N Number were saved correctly in the configuration first. If it's not that, I'd give uAvionix a call. I would expect this to be...

    Agreed. The output from the transponders are typically 200W, so basic reception typically isn't a problem. However, overmodulation and distortion certainly can be with some units, although I have...

    That indicates that the internal GPS is likely not working correctly. I would think uAvionics would swap that out without question. Should be an easy fix. ...

    The interrogation of the transponder usually comes from radar sites. Some areas of the country have sketchy coverage. Any time a Mode-C transponder replies to an interrogation, it sends the squawk...

    I'd be curious as to what is failing in your PAPR report? The uAvionix units typically fail with either Mode 3A or Baro Alt. When they fail with those errors, it's typically due to poor radar...
