    Short hijack here...  One of my favorite books written by an Alaska flying warden back in the 70s and 80s.  Great stories in here and this topic reminds me of one where he was holed up in a shack with crazy winds... the (supercub?) was actually flying in the tiedown ropes!  Read the book to see the rest of the story when they decided to fly it out!
    And BTW my favorite story is Chapter 18!  Just about died laughing!
    "From a Bush Wing: Notes of an Alaska Wildlife Trooper" by Stephen Santiago Reynolds.

    Oh and it always amazes me how strong steel is. When I was building my mount I kept asking myself if it will be able to hold 500-600lbs of thrust.  Then I realized that it really comes down to merely the THREADS on the AN4 bolts / nuts!

    From some of the Yamaha mounts Ive seen (that are working just fine) and also my old highly cantilevered sub NSI mount, I would say that the most other mounts must be overbuilt.
    Maybe draw something up that is very lightly built and run it through a FEM / FEA program to see what it is calculated to hold up to.

    Yeah Mark it sure makes no difference to me what map we use.  But others have been able to post off my link, here's a screenshot of the current map:

    Yeah I did use the share link function in what I posted here.  But this is the first time I've created a map like this.  Maybe there is a better way?

  15. Yamma-Fox added a post in a topic Gross weight increase Kitfox IV 1050-1200   

    I don't have the instructions but the good news is that yes alot of over gross flying has inevitably happened in Kitfoxes and I believe they still claim zero in flight structural failures with all the kits they have sold (as told to me by John McBean at OSH 2017)
