    Leni says, " I want to build the gear for  your (mine) plane so I can beat it up" That's the reason I get one first.
    And I don't have a problem with using the plane to test the gear. My even use my mod 4 with the 670.
    Only have a couple hrs on the 670 so that's a way to fly off the 40, it seems like a bull so far.

    am I crazy
    Convince me I'm not crazy. I just got the mod 4 inspected, I have a mod 2 to rebuild, I am building a Legal eagle XL, and
    for some reason I thought I needed another mod 1.

    Good information. I don't remember my mod 3 SN but it had the side rail mounts.
