    If the tail wires are tight there’s no way that horizontal moves like that. I don’t get why your mechanic is scratching his head.

    I'd say fears and emotions bias more guys against it than for it. And in that most guys that speak out against it have zero time using it. The internet is funny that way.

    A hammer won’t pound a nail if you don’t know how to use it, and can do considerable damage if you use it incorrectly. So it goes with most tools.

    A spacecraft hitting an asteroid 6-1/2 million miles away and traveling 14,000 mph is an achievement. The interesting part is this smaller asteroid is orbiting a larger one. The experiment is to see...

    Are the 3000 bottoms flat or shaped? If shaped, how did you form them?

    The biggest problem with ADS-B is the provision that if installed, it must be on. That doesn’t make sense, it never has made sense, and it’s the biggest reason more planes aren’t using the equipment...
  7. If you think ADS-B can be used against you you...

    If you think ADS-B can be used against you you should offset that by ADS-B being useful to defend you. That’s one good thing about open source ADS-B tracking. The government does not have an...

    Does anyone use audio notifications from an iPad or iPhone? My G3X does it for me. No audio from the iPad diminishes its usefulness for traffic. I never bluetoothed the iPad to my headset for traffic...

    Thatís not how it works. Thatís a myth spun by guys whoíve not used it. Wait til you have a fast plane closing on you from behind. Or climbing fast toward you at that 500í while you think youíre the...

    They did it. Great video, particularly in the moments prior to impact. The images are spectacular!

    One thing I like about ADS-B is on a low day when you canít really tell how good the weather might be? Look at ADS-B Exchange to see whoís out there. On those days Iím glad those guys added it.

    TIS-B (a component of ADS-B) translates Mode C airplanes within the radar coverage area to show them on ADS-B displays. You should see them with any In receiver.

    Do you fly within radar coverage? Out in the boondocks? Where you operate should factor into the decision. In radar coverage mode C transponders are translated to ADS-B so you get a pretty complete...

    FWIW, About a year ago I casually wiped an area on my Aerothane-painted wings with a light swipe of a rag with acetone. I was surprised to find that area gummy and soft a few minutes after. I thought...

    I used an ABW assembly. I did so because Airframes and Dan Dufalt were good enough to give me a credit for returning a T3 so I had money to spend. Most of the exp guys I know use the Matco and like...

    It’s not a breather. It’s a dump line for fuel leaked past a bad pump diaphragm. It directs the fuel away to reduce fire risk.

    Losing weight makes sense if you fly empty all the time. Not as much if you fly loaded, other than it provides for more payload. Your wing loading and power loading numbers are great if looking at an...
