    The CF is actually lighter than air... It's actually screwed down to keep it from floating. The lift of the floorboards on the airframe is anywhere from 5-15 lbs.

    Curious as to people's opinion on the cost of weight savings on a cub? How much is it worth for you to save 20lbs? $1000? $2000? What's your magic number?

    What's this engine?

    Can anyone here identify this Continental engine? Had a guy text me these pictures, he didn't know a thing about it, figured someone here could tell what it was.

    Sure doesn't look like a cat track to me, not rpund enough. How big are the coyotes in that area? Claws don't always show in a k9 track, my money is on it being a domestic dog, or a 40lb+ coyote.

    Is it in need of a restoration, or is it airworthy as is? If it's airworthy, fly it until it's on its last legs, then sell it for whatever you can get for it. Put that money towards the next plane....
