    T3 tailwheel Mount
    I bought a T3 tailwheel made for Kitfox to mount on my Model C avid. Do any of you have a picture of the tailwheel area of a kitfox that accommodates the T3 tailwheel.  I think I will need to fab up a mount but would like to see a picture of kitfox for reference.

    Avid Flyer C Model
    Good Afternoon,
    I am thinking of buying the bubble doors for my Avid C model and am wondering if the doors are the same as the Mark IV doors.
    Thank You,

    The Army had different plans for me.  After jumping out of perfectly good airplanes at Fort Benning, Georgia they told me I was headed to Alaska.  My mouth hit the floor.

    I was born and raised in Bristol Tennessee.  I'm a crazy hillbilly through and through.

    I would never get to fly if I was afraid of the terrain around my house.  Basically when transitioning between questionable terrain altitude will be our friend.  I pull the cowling on my craft after every flight and inspect everything. Creeping problems can get out of hand quickly.

    Susitna River Gravel Bar Landing.
    I love gravel bar landings on the Susitna.  Makes for a practice paradise.

    The problem with the U.N. is they think global warming must equal new world order to solve.  If they would just leave us alone the U.S. will continue to pursue clean energy which it is already the leader.  Carbon tax and import tariffs are nothing more than redistributions of our wealth to other countries.

    I was doing 60.  The speed will slowly bleed off so had to be on the throttle and monitor speed.  It feels like it would be hard to force the tires down into the water once they start skipping.  There is a very slight feeling of nose over when I first touched but no problem to handle with elevator.  The Avids are so short that if your not on it things could quickly get out of hand.  Definitely done want to do that on a windy day as you could get pushed down suddenly and that would not be good.  When the tires first meet the water it sounds like skidding on pavement with a little more vibration.

    First Try At Water Skipping
    Tried my luck water skipping on the Susitna River.  First touch down was like tires skidding on pavement.  Once the tires get rolling its a piece of cake.

    Global Warming Hype
    I don't know if you realize but the current trend in California to do away with all fossil fuels by 2045 will completely destroy private aviation.  This will spread across the U.S.  There is no way to produce an electric plane that has enough batteries to power it for 2 hours and light enough to haul two people and cargo unless of course you build it with balsa wood and fly only on zero wind days.  If we continue to follow U.N. trends the U.S. will be completely annihilated along with all the vehicles.  The state of California is following the false science of the U.N. that claims CO2 is causing global warming.  CO2 makes up .0004 percent of the atmosphere along with hundreds of other naturally occurring gases.  Climate change is happening but climate change has always happened.  They are suggesting that glaciers are melting because of CO2.  This is false as well.  Underneath the Swiss Alps glaciers are entire forests.  Underneath the Mendenhall glacier in Alaska are trees with roots still in the ground.  This means the glaciers were not there in the past when cars did not even exist.  Also trees need CO2 to survive.  .0004 percent of CO2 is very low and it was much higher in the past before the industrialized revolution.  Dozens of U.N. scientists have quit because they see the falsehood of the science that is purely a political agenda to suck the U.S. into a new world order.  The only way to stop this progressive movement is at the ballot box.  The U.N. has ingeniously integrated immigration and climate change into the left philosophy to secure their path forward.  If you don't stop it at the ballot box we will wake up one day and private aviation will be over. That is not far fetched.  Most of the population could care less because they don't have a plane but our vote does count.
    So the main point of all my rhetoric is to suggest that many voters in our country are out of balance with false information.  We need to bring balance back to our states at the ballot box.  Remember that November is a referendum against Trump.  He may be an idiot speaker but His policies are pro freedom and Anti-globalists.

    The left wing has an adjustable strut on the rear attachment at spar.  That could be a place to start but have others confirm before you proceed.

    Water Skimming
    Howdy.  Curious how the Avid Flyers handle water skimming.  Because of the short fuselage I worry about to much drag when the tire touches the water.  Have any of you attempted it?  What speed, flap config, etc did you use?  How did the plane feel when you first touched the water?

  15. lv2plyguitar added a post in a topic What's it trying to tell me ?   

    I had rough idling and a big mag drop between the two.  Turned out to be the gapping on the trigger coils.  Once I got that right then no problems.  You could have a combo problem with different items like spark plugs and trigger coils combined.  The 912 has such high compression if anything lacks it will show up.
