    It all depends on what is front of you. If it's any kind of a field I'd much rather touch down
    at 26 mph going straight ahead than try to make a 180 at 400 feet hoping to hit a short runway
    and land a...

    Yeah, wind is everything. Usually there's no point in turning around if you're going to have to
    land with a 20 mph tail wind. I saw a Cherokee try it once from about 700 feet after takeoff.
    He ended u...

    Assuming you're talking about Asian Lady Beetles...they are not known to attack wood. Nobody on
    a forum can see your spars as well as you and your mechanic. But cutting fabric beyond adding
    some inspe...

    There are a lot of ways to skin this cat. Lots of practical solutions as shown above.You will
    have to decide if you want to follow the rules for fuel storage and transport. Federal, state,

    MS uses safety wire.I always use safety wire but you'll also see locking tabs with hex head
    screws.

    Long story short - I borrowed some tools from Kermit, and pulled the carb off the airplane,
    expecting to see a bunch of dirt in the idle circuits. Instead, I found the two halves of the
    carb hanging o...

    I would agree that more wings have had to be torn apart because of wood spar cracks than wings
    with metal spars. And a cracked spar could certainly result in a fatality. Just wondering how
    many docume...

    And do not forget: Champs with wood spars undergo an AD inspection once a year, and it is not
    cheap to fully comply. Try maybe six hours of boring, intensive study. Cub spars are just like
    Champ spars...

    No matter what engine you install, you are limited to 80 HP with the stock fuel system. What
    recommendations would you have for an A&P installing a C85 or C90, that is specified on A-691,
    to comply wi...
