Wife was looking over my shoulder when I opened the eBay link.

"No"

Humph.

What's the round object behind the cylinders on the left side?

Thanks. I thought it looked like an oil filter, but but figured it had to be something else.

Merlinspop,

She obviously doesn't appreciate the monetary advantages to L-4 ownership. You have failed in your obligations, Grasshopper. You must impress upon her that this is the best time to buy an airplane, as it will do nothing but appreciate in value. She should also become acquainted with the benefits of flying the L-4. Had you brought her to the airplane at Hagerstown, together we could have turned her to the good side of the force!

She's one of those practical Capricorn types. Just because it's taken me since April to find a new job which has wiped out our strategic financial reserves...

A little to complicated an aircraft for me what with all those crazy electrical gizmos. Battery? Starter? I am getting a headache just thinking of all the complexity!

Can be hand propped if needed??? Is there any other way???

Oh and whats up with brakes that really work....crazy!

J3 brakes will slide the tires. That's all the braking power I need.
