    John,
    When occasions arise that the battery has drained a bit, how many amperes is it initially charging at and how long before it is under 10 amperes? I'm concerned about earlier Jabiru charging limitations. Which model EarthX are you running? Guessing your Jab has the newer charging system.

    How flexible are you (able to bend over, lift legs up, etc. comfortably) and what size feet? The answers to these questions are significant. There are some folks bigger than you that are fine and some smaller that are not.

    Run it harder with avgas to reduce lead deposit formations.

    Quick search showed Amazon with 1 as pictured for $19.97 or another spot at Amazon that had the kit which included two as pictured including two cups and spacers for $13.97.

    Matco's current info available on their website says 5606 or DOT 5, but definitely not DOT 3,4, or 5.1.

    Perhaps the squiggly tape style would be appropriate?? Tried to find a link but didn't score.

    I was expecting it to drop but it didn't seem to, might be something to his varying pitch design - it seemed to work for me. If I was to order another from him, I'd probably try 64/32.

    That Luga should get it off short, have you heard of anyone else putting that large of a prop on the Jabiru before? I purchased that very slightly used 62/32 that Lonnie Prince had, surely a nice improvement for my short field.

    TJ, what prop are you using?

    Perhaps I should've explained in the original post that I was using one clamp on the top side and one on the bottom. It went pretty well for me, but the bungees were not new either.

    Entirely classroom with some props. No getting dirty unless you spill lunch on yourself. Very remedial is a good description but as I said earlier, Brian and Carol made it a bit better than just getting the paper - though that's the main thing.

    Doug,
    ~12 years ago did the course for weight shift control. Last year I stayed after at Oshkosh for the fixed wing airplane version so I could get the certificate for my Avid. This time from Brian and Carol Carpenter/Rainbow Aviation, guessing same folks for you?. I got more out of it than I expected, Brian and Carol did a great job. I don't recall the balance other than a fair bit of time on the regs as some have a hard time getting it. Don't worry about prior knowledge, you'll do fine from what I've seen on the list. You'll be bored at times but it works out okay.
