    But any satellite airport with in that circle you may take off and land in with permission.  If your radio doesn't work on the ground you may contact tower just after take off as well.

    I think that's quite normal. Put a little silicone in there and then the correct rubber boot on the top. I believe JBM makes a fairly good one the rotax ones are junk.

    A quick update here I spent the weekend drilling my well.  Got to 30 feet and hit ground that was so rocky and hard that I had to stop.  Im in 8 feet of water but thats not nearly enough for a sprinkler.  But thats ok you win some and you loose some.  Time to start working on something else. Might try again later.

    What about just shorting the HS by a few inches on each side? Do you think you would notice it?

    Or this could work if your short, with a little tubing work, One thing about it if you're sitting on gas you butt might stay cooler.

    Two panels I just like the looks of wood in the wilderness. Thats why I built it,  But you are correct if it would move south west in the evening it would be more efficient.

    The panels produce dc power it is converted to 30 amp 220ac in the little shed through the inverter,  we could only afford one Tesla battery, It is a 1.4kw that little battery on the shelf will allow us to pull 1000 watts for 5 hours continuously. As far as price, its a lot. But Less than Vernon electric wanted to hook us up to the grid, but of coarse not near as much power.

    Got solar
    Well spent another weekend in wonderful Wisconsin and finished up my solar project. It is so nice to have some form of electricity. For the last two years it was start the generator to make coffee in the morning and buy lots of ice to keep the ice cream cool but not anymore.
