    Nice work TJay - Was a little disappointed that there is not one photo of a hanger.  Guess not many calls or much profit in assembling them?  ;<)   My old house probably sold for about $10K or $12K in 1964, and I think I have about $160K in it including rebuilding and the shop and small shed (about $35K in concrete work) since I bought it in 2005.  Insurance says $220K to replace all of it - guess that is way below what is being built today, but at least I don't have those big payments every month, (or the money to pay them!). Ha!  Ready mix concrete was $12 a yard when I poured it in 1964, and the last I poured was $200 a yard with colored being $400 a yard - Times and prices have really changed.  My 1964 Chevy convertible was $2700 new, not much more than my 1954 Convertible cost.  BTW:  My starting pay in the Army was 11 cents an hour plus room an board in 1959, or about $78 a month before Social Security and taxes were taken out of it.   Just some ancient history for those who didn't live then.

    Someone should bring back the Henderson and Indian 4-bangers (with some modern engineering, of course).  I think for the $$$$ I would have gone with one of the other Soob redrives since Stratus is OOB.  That is what the plane was designed for.   EDMO

    Makes the Rotax crowd nervous?  ;<)  Airdale was designed for the Subaru anyway.   EDMO

    Whatever can turn the fan!  ;<)  I put a lot of miles on Hardly engines and never had one quit on me.   I hear that the new ones are a lot smoother than the old shakers.  EDMO

    That was my mistake too - I should have dropped the floor and seats instead of raising the wings 6" - Would have been lots easier, but I needed new struts anyway.  My way gives lots better visibility for short pilot.  EDMO

    Yes,  Airdales are nicer than most Avids IMO.  Wonder how many horses that Hardly puts out - I've heard of them up to 180 without NOX.  My flying buddy's son has a dragster bike that is NOX and it is scary!    EDMO

    I have since studied the division of the states along the waterways, and concluded that there had to be some compromise to give each one access to the water routes and resources in the waters - Look at Mississippi and how it also connects with a small portion on the water.  Guessing this may be more obvious in Northern States.   EDMO

    Could be government salvage from run-out drones?  I'm sure the UK military is like ours, "it's only taxpayer money"!  ;<)  EDMO

    How long are those wings Randy?  Same as Catalina or Magnum?   I will be interested in hearing how 2 degrees of dihedral makes it fly compared to the 1 degree that Kitfox (and Avid?) uses.  The Birddog L-19 had about 3.5 degrees of dihedral if I remember right - more than C-170.  Good post.   EDMO

    OK Chris,  send me a PM with address and I will get shipping cost and let you know.  I would like to see some photos/videos or reports on how good it is when it gets installed.  EDMO

  14. EDMO added a post in a topic EXPERIMENTAL AMATEUR BUILT data plate locations   

    As best I remember, none of the planes I have owned ever had the DEA tag on them.  EAA says that their simple tag on the tail is all that is required now.  I think it may have been checked more if you flew internationally or through ADIZ zones.  Once they were telling that the CAP members would be checking planes for "suspicion", but my chapter never did that - Could have got some young members in danger for that!   Also, we heard that DEA had covertly worked through Avionics shops to "fix" some transponders so that even if they were turned off they would still transmit.  I doubt if any of this ever did anything to slow down drug traffic.  If the inspector is happy with your simple data plate on the tail, then you should be good to go - unless you are running dope!

  15. EDMO added a post in a topic Avif vs. KitFox actual versions comparison   

    They all fly about the same - biggest difference is visability and control on the ground between tail draggers and nose draggers.    The make and model number will be on the data plate.  EDMO
