    Why not use the level app for your smart phone. It's more accurate. That all I ever used.

    From John McBean at TeamKitfox:
     
    Update:
    Just days ago, Kitfox Aircraft announced that the 2017 version of the historic Kitfox Speedster is going to be introduced at EAA AirVenture 2017, exactly 25 years from the first appearance of this memorable airplane at AirVenture, 1992.

    The 25th anniversary of the Speedster introduction is being joined by the 50th anniversary of Franklin’s Flying Circus and Airshow. It is just been announced that Kyle Franklin, recipient of the 2017 Bill Barber Award for Showmanship, will be flying an aerobatic sequence in the 2017 Kitfox S7 Speedster in the Wednesday airshow honoring his late father’s (Jimmy Franklin) aerobatic introduction of the original Speedster in 1992. History seldom repeats itself with such flare and special memories. Talking with Kyle he said, "I can honestly say that the new Kitfox Speedster has exceeded my expectations by a factor of ten!” What a terrific way to celebrate two anniversaries.

    Yeah, yeah. And you used to be able to go to the movies for a nickel.

    What do you do with the integral transmission?
    That is why the RX1 (and other) Yamaha snowmobile engines are so popular right now.  No transmission cast into the crank case.

    ...probably didn't know the seat cushion condition until the next morning's constitution.  I imagine it got sucked right up in there!
     
    I'm very happy to know that grass stains and pride were the only damage.

    I would think you will have a certificate that says Private Pilot.  All of your Sport Pilot privileges will be swallowed up by the PP cert.

    Since you can legally command any of the types on a private certificate, I don't know why not.

    I just got an email yesterday.  I guess it just took them a little while t get to me. 
    According to the new feeds I've read, it looks like photobucket is circling he drain, but the email says you can still download your photos back local.  We better do it sooner than later.  
     
    So, again, who is using what for image hosting?

    Probably just need to resize the photos.  Photos are limited to to a certain file size.

  14. Av8r3400 added a post in a topic Need Avid Mk4 Heavy Hauler wings!   

    As far as "intellectual property" is concerned, he has a few drawings and a garage full of jigs.   I don't think anything was ever patented or trademarked, so...
    I believe he mostly sold landing gear and wing kits.  He also got caught up doing several major rebuilds for people.  That and family issues took up most of his time and he never seemed to really get off the ground. 
    I believe he would sell, if you have cash and can get in touch with him.

    Brett has taken another job at least a year ago.  Airdale is no more.
    All the stuff is still there, but no one is operating it.
