    This place is a dump.  You'd think with the taxes, regulations, tree huggers, progressives that this liberal Mecca would be utopia.  Far from it.   Ya, I'm biased too!

    Oakland To Do (Aviation preferred)
    Stuck in Oakland for at least anothet 24 hours, drove out late last night to fix a Falcon 50EX.  Parts in order....
    Looking for things to do, prefer aviation related and on a mechanics budget.
    Headed over to the Oakland Aviation Museum now, there's a kitfox there.
    Any suggestions?

    Posting expired.
    I reached out to him a couple times with no reply.  
    Maybe he was just listing it to appease his significant other with no intent to sell?

    It's a Model IV speedster according to the seller.  Still a good deal if you get it for under $10k, I think.

    It's a Watkins 5080, made in the former soviet state of Kurblackishstan.  Hand crafted by the indigenous people of the watutu tribe.

    NV is going the other way, freakin California overflow and Bloomberg backed agenda.  Legally I have to get a background check to borrow a gun from a family member or friend. I carry a TCP 738 .380 auto.  Small, but it makes a reallg loud noise when you pull the trigger.

  14. nemesisnxt added a post in a topic Looking for N618GZ info   

    Reported as 533lbs empty on Tweety Bird with a 912ULS.  Not bad.  Climb rate/angle must be amazing!
    What's a Jabiru 2200 installation, 40lbs, 50lbs, (or?) lighter than a 912?
    So lets say 490lbs with a Jab in the same cowless, open aft fuselage configuration, right?  Can a Jab hang out in free air with a cooling plenum?
    So lets say I stick a cowl on it and cover the aft fuselage.   That can't possibly weigh more than 60lbs, right?
    Voilá! 550lb KF-3 with a four stroke.  
    Maybe use the Model 4 ribs that he has and improve the speed of the little frankin-plane by 10mph to take even more advantage of the high RPM Jabiru.
    Now the near impossible part:  finding a low to mid time 2200 jab at a decent price...
