    Spot on Ed. The higher the wing loading, the less you'll be tossed around in rough air

    You've got that right Ed! My son-in-law and I are about the same height and his head almost hits the frame and mine doesn't, but my knees are up under my chin .

    If you know the type/model of Grove gear you have you can check their site for the specs including weight. Avid MK IV tail dragger comes in at 32 lbs.

    The aluminum on my wings  - which I replaced with .8mm birch plywood - was done in three pieces. And I used three pieces of plywood and had no trouble laying down the seams on a rib. After gluing the plywood to the rib, I used a small amount of Hysol and light sanding to feather-in the seams.

    Nice pictures! And it looks like it's the Cabinet Gorge Dam and the other one upstream is the Noxon Rapids Dam.

    I think one of the sites on the list I posted stated they limited file sizes to 3mb and they "auto" resized the photos to meet that requirement and retained the correct aspect ratios.

    Yup, and that's why an aft CG is more efficient. Less tail "down lift/force" required (reduced AOA) so less drag . . .
