    When you take that cover off check it for flatness. If the previous owner over-torqued the bolts the flange corners will be bent and a new gasket won’t solve anything. You’ll need to flatten it and...

    Maybe the worst mis-information post I’ve ever read. Mackey slats improve the wing, no question. Keller flaps lower the useful AOA, no question. If an average pilot flies a plane equipped with both?...

    Just got a message from a friend. A factory 0-470 is $60K. $17K for a core. 12 months delivery time. Holy sh-t. I dream about building another plane but I probably won’t. Lucky me.

    Never heard of Experimental being part of the label. Some tires were produced prior to having a TSO or PMA approval but the absence of the approval was all that mattered, or so I thought. But I don’t...

    Finally back home and thought to check. My actuator runs my trim from up 4° to down 6°, so very similar to your plan. I’ve never heard owners of similar planes talk about trim range before now....

    You should consider a Safety Trim. Timeout protection and two speeds selectable from the panel. I use full nose down trim for takeoff. I’m on the trim switch as soon as the tires lift off. The fast...

    My Cub has the upper longeron on top, too. With a simulated load of a tail hit with a load my uppers bow, and with mine they bow downward. Being covered that’s the path of least resistance, I guess....

    Kindasuper, have you done any actual testing of your tail section’s flex at full weight? I’m curious about how you chose your baggage door size, too.

    My extended airframe-slats-big Pstol flaps Cub requires using the full range of trim on every flight. Electric trim is an important addition regardless of weight. To have the ounces add up to pounds...

    Big boy Cubs have pros and cons. With slats and Pstol flaps you’ll quickly appreciate electric trim. My linear actuator works great, by the way. No interference.

    You’ll wish for more power.

    Use it as an opportunity to learn. Ask your DPE. Lights burn out. It shouldn’t be a game stopper.

    Yep, auto texting when I took off and landed based on speeds I set. Wife clicked on the text and it showed a satellite view of where I was. Any time the plane slowed below the set speed she got a...

    I’ve had an Inreach for years and will use it as needed. ADS-B is the real game changer in tracking. Neither matches the features Spidertracks offers. I’ll miss it.

    Aerocet allows 3190# when the Kenmore kit is installed. I doubt Kenmore shared any data.

    There was a time in my young life that I thought the gross kit was important. Looking back? It never...

    Spidertracks, Price Increases, UNCLE!

    I’ve been spoiled for many years with a grandfathered $20 per month service plan. Spidertracks just rescinded my old plan and offered me their least expensive option. Just under $500 per year to...

    Add 300# on the nose and see if that levels it out. You're approx 800# under the typical weight that suspension is designed for.
