    BasicMED
    Have any of you been through the BasicMED process of the on-line course and visit to your GP/PCP (or similar)? I will be due this year. My wife avoided the whole thing and went back to our local AME. However that kinda defeats the purpose of what should be a benefit to the new system.

    Wondering if there are any pitfalls to avoid. I have heard of some resistance from GP's wanting to sign that document indicating safe for flight.

    My Big One Joey - somehow totally forgot that there was FG under the fabric on Avids - I even owned a pair at one time and sold them!   Must have confused them with Pipers!  Thanks,  EDMO

    T3 suspension
    I got my T3 suspension mounted and adjusted today and took it for a spin...I love it!  It makes the tailwheel transition smooooth in a wheel landing...no shimmy at all either.
    I put the “Fat Mat” Matco Tailwheel back on it and taxiing on pavement with it sucks, but I made some adjustments to it and it handles much better...so I’m going to give it another chance.
    Here is a drop test video...

    Avids didn't have FG tips - Is he wanting to use Kitfox tips on an Avid?  I've got a set of used droop tips.  EDMO

    Flywise,
    I’ll let Barry comment on the weight, he bought the LSA version.  I’m sure that is 5# without the wheel though.
    Also, be aware that even the LSA version only fits 1.5” and 1.75” Tailwheel receivers.  So unless you want to grind your new Tailwheel suspension, plan accordingly...
    I bought the Piper Version and it is about the same weight as the Husky 3 leaf spring I had on it before.  For any other magnum owners or builders out there, the Piper 1500# coil over spring is way to stiff for the light tail loads of the Magnum...the lsa coil over spring of 1000# would have been fine, but you live and you learn!  It really lifted my tail up and maybe now I can taxi without doing the drunk swerve so I can see what is in front of me

    Hey Barry,
    on the airframes alaske website the T3 tail spring lists a weight of 5 Lbs....does that weight include the wheel???
    I would love a T3 but am very limited in weight increase in the tail...
    As it stands now my tailwheel spring (fibreglass) and wheel (6in) is at 3.3Lbs..

    I am going to guess the wing tip.  Don't remember there being a fiberglass flaperon tip.

    I had run across this a while back, and couldn't find it again.  Of course now that I've posted the titles, I found the video it came from.  There is a bit more to it than just the song titles.    Funny I think.  JImChuk
