    Dunno - that’s just what I was told by a guy who knows ‘em better than I do. I’ll have a good Cub mech here in AK take a look during upcoming annual for any issues.

    Our 2023 Legend AL18 MOAC build is much stiffer on the controls than the PA18’s I’ve flown. Darin Hart (Legend company owner) said it’s due to being a faster, burlier bird with more control forces at...

    Thanks, Stewart.

    Just an update on this PPonk build- we had to pull all six cylinders in July 2022 and rebore/replace the valve guides to straighten them, as they were deemed to be off-axis and causing...

    Depends on your mission.

    I now regret our Sensenich ground adjustable instead of a constant speed MT or similar. We’re often loaded to gross and at the back of the cg envelope (even with a cargo...

    No flutter. Another Legend builder has 100’s of hours in similar state of “de-slatting” with no issues.
    CHT’s lowered a bit. I’ll have more data after a few cross countries en route AK

    I'm not a Cub guy by trade, so wasn't aware of these "better" options for tiedown until late in the game. Am appreciative folks here and at home suggested it before any damage done.

    Any concerns about galvanic corrosion between the steel or titanium Atlee brackets and the aluminum spar? Is the steel version stainless?
    I'm thinking titanium for weight savings
  18. No - neither are installed.

    No - neither are installed.

    Am I foolish to skip installation of the Atlee tie down brackets and instead rely on roping through the standard tie down brackets, around the struts and back through the standard brackets? This...

    Guess I'll have to at least try the Mutt Muffs. Holly's ears stick up, though, and people report fitment issues with such.
