    Personally... if I were doing it, I'd think about an electric heater strip wrapped around the carb throat, with an automatic thermostatic control. Then you have carb heat, when it's needed, without...

    I think there are a number of one- and two-seat, electric multirotor aircraft under development. I saw a couple at Oshkosh two years ago, in fact, and have seen videos of a German-built...

    It might be a decent deal, it might be a lost cause -- there are plenty of those that have "been sitting a while" but are sold with fresh annuals. Uh-huh. My only advice to you would be to start...

    Of course if you go Monday and Tuesday, you'll be hearing later about all the stuff you missed Wednesday and Thursday. I think any two days would be good... but three would be a lot better.
