    BasicMED
    Have any of you been through the BasicMED process of the on-line course and visit to your GP/PCP (or similar)? I will be due this year. My wife avoided the whole thing and went back to our local AME. However that kinda defeats the purpose of what should be a benefit to the new system.

    Wondering if there are any pitfalls to avoid. I have heard of some resistance from GP's wanting to sign that document indicating safe for flight.

    Mine was the simple/small EAA tag.  Riveted on the aluminum cover plate under the horizontal stab.  I used a DAR (due to a time crunch), however most around here forgo the cost of a DAR on go with the free option of FAA inspector.  Last I knew they were following the same guidelines with regard to what was needed for a data plate.

    Mine worked great.  I added controllable shutters as well to the radiator to keep the temps up in winter.  Meany ATV heater options out there as well on Amazon.  Tried the exhaust wrap thing on a HKS once.  Didn't work too bad wile under full power, but things got cold quick when at partial power and on decent.   Liquid heating works great, especially when you can block the radiator a bit.  Having cockpit control was a nice option.

    Mangy in Sport Aviation
    Maybe this has already been covered, but I just noticed a great shot of Mangy in the January issue of Sport Aviation Magazine.
     
    Well deserve tribute to some excellent workmanship!

    Glad you made down o.k.  Great job on the landing.   Just a thought, 65 MPH seems high to me for best glide (mine, Kitfox, was more like 50).  What model Avid?

    Testing Fabric
    Ran across this one the other day.  I know the earlier Kitfoxes and assume Avids used lightweight fabric.  Would the same criteria apply (as the table seems awful general and I believe the Cub and Champs use a medium weight fabric)?
    Do you guys use a similar process and criteria for fabric test?
