    W and B
    I am going to check my weight and balance this wknd on the mk 4. Dont really want to trust what someone else says.

    I am guessing you level the wings front to back at the root..............is this correct

    I have a boat trailer I had picked up to turn into a trailer for a plane.I no longer need it.If you are interested you can have it for $50 or trade for??

    I kind of need it out of here.......my yard already looks like sanford and son.

    Thanks Ed
    I have the FAA(we are not happy until you are not happy)stuff.Just looking for the official avid flight manual.

    I picked up an open trailer from a kitfox today from a buddy for $200 bucks.I already started the mods tonight to let the wide gear fit on there.
    Pretty good deal!!

    Well maybe scolded was the wrong wording........
    I do like this list

    What I am going to do is take the plane out to a grass strip with more friendly terrain around it. And no more of what I just did!!

    tail up
    Now that I have it turning at slow speeds ok,I tried high speed taxing this afternoon.All I can say is wow! Me thinks my taildragger technique is a bit rusty.I was dancing on the pedals a little too much.I got it going side to side enough I had to back off the gas a couple of times.Need a bit more practice!!This is a mk4 582 with wide Airdale gear and Nanco 21 tires on concrete.I have a feeling this combo has a little to do with it.I may try moving the springs in on the extensions I put on the rudder horns,may make alittle less sensitive.

    I did get up to 30 indicated with elevator neutral and no tail up.I thought it would come up by that speed?

    Can anyone give me some speeds.....take off ,flap settings and speeds,approach speeds? I looked on the other forum and found some ,but they look like maybe they are for a pretty early model.

    Thanks C5
    I put extentions on the rudder horns and it worked perfect.Now it taxis just fine.

    As far as the brakes,it is all black max........calipers and master cylinders.I think I will tackle that a little later.

    Great Idea
    I will try just redrilling holes inboard on the tailwheel bracket first,but may try yours also.As far as the brakes go,the guy I got it from had put large tires and wheels on this and the stock brakes will not work.So he put on those black max brakes.I just cant get enough leverage on the pedals.I even extended the tabs on the pedals and still barely any brakes.Am thinking of rigging some kind of heel brake .......should be able to get more pressure that way.
