    I arrived Wednesday last year to beat the weather. Couldn't register for a day or two but the camp volunteers were there and the permanent showers were open. There were a couple other planes so I...

    You can get 5gph out of an O320 with electronic fuel injection and ignition. When I'm chasing C182's I get 5gph at about 145 mph in my Glasair II. If I'm cruising WOT (Savvy style) and 2400 RPM I get...

    One good way to help decide is get some hands on. There are more then a few workshops other than Oshkosh where you can put together a few pieces out of wood, metal or composites. I kind of like wood,...

    Not positive, but since the output is directly related to the voltage, one of the alternators will not supply any output if the voltage is higher than it's regulated setting. You can set the voltages...

    For a minute there I thought he came to Canada. GPS works here unless you go too far north. The far north has never been charted. You have to rely on GLONASS. ;)

    I think the right answer is that everybody is using indicated altitude adjusted for barometric pressure. Unlike true altitude which is adjusted for both temperature and pressure. So if you want to...

    I land at Sloulin once in a while when I cross the border from Canada. I don't get charged extra fees but know enough not to purchase fuel. Twenty minutes farther gets me fuel for 30% less. I did...

    I think there is a need for the square pattern. Nothing wrong with a mixing in a 180 from down wind either. As long as you don't use it to beat the guy ahead of you!;) When you've mastered the...

    Staying within your limitations is probably key, but extra training also is a good idea. In Canada it takes and extra 5 hours (10 hours total) training under the hood to obtain a night endorsement...

    I agree. The glue joint is perfectly acceptable. The wood failed before the glue. If you have gussets to hold the two pieces together then the glue between the two pieces is mute. The strength is in...

    I used a CNC router for a lot of the wood parts for my Hatz Classic. The rib nose and tail pieces were a minor part of what I used it for. For a while it was my favorite tool. I also had all the...

    Some are easy to add. For instance this one



    In my fixed gear I just added a note on the panel that says "Gear is always down". Difficult to make an error that way. ;)

    Another source is abandon projects. I picked up my spars from an abandon project and know of a second project that has spars. I have a box of 1/4" x 48" capstrip that I won't be using. It came with...

    I agree with rv8bldr. I register the number of hours I fly each year for each plane and get charged a fee. I think it's $70 per plane. Couldn't be simpler.

    I traded in my DC for Zulu with their upgrade program and lent them to my wife who couldn't hear me or the radio in my Glasair II with an intercom for noisy planes. I had the leather muff over the...
