    The landing path shown in this video turns a very short right base to final, over a tree line, through a narrow cut and finally landing downhill.  It's a challenge.
    The strip is 1200' length in total, including a 200' over run on each end.

    yup.  Thats the Mangy!
    The guy with the red and white biplane was grounded because of shear incompetence.  He had no idea how to fly it.

    Kitfox IV
    It's not much different than doing a ski pass on unfamiliar snow.  Carry a bit of speed (60 mph) some flap to keep the nose down and let it sink to a light touch down.  Push the stick forward a bit to keep it on the water and have fun...

    Yes.  Jan Eggenfeldner.  I would not give this criminal a penny.

    Make sure to stay pissed off enough to vote in November.  The democRATs take over again and this will be the tip of the iceberg...

    Started from scratch.  The complete Avid/early Kitfox design is crap IMO.

    What did you do to keep the fabric from pulling the wood toward the rear of the plane as it is shrunk?
    Or do you think the angles of the pieces to one another gives enough strength to resist the rear pull?

    Where, what is the condition and how much?
    If you can buy it right you can re-engine it with a usable engine.

    I have a hangar neighbor who runs mix all the time in his Champ.  25-75% av to auto.  Runs great and lots less lead to cake things up in the C85.

    I don't know what you are including to get 215 pounds for a 912.  Maybe with a prop, engine mount, all fluids, battery and a sand bag you can get there.  165-175 with radiator, exhaust and fluids is realistic for a ULS.  198 is what Continental advertises their lightweight O200-D at, not the "standard" O200-A.
    Engines are a very personal choice.  There are plenty of Subaru's flying.  They work, no argument.  It's all what you want.

    After parting out a buddy's Subaru powered Kitfox, the weight of his setup was closer to 260#. 
    I don't know the brand of the conversion, but it used a Ford planetary gearbox.
