    I wonder if you can install a non-approved lighting system and call it "decorative lighting".
    Then you could use it any way you care to.....There must be some more attractive (less ugly)
    options avail...

    You don't want to heat the springs, they'll lose their temper and become weak. If you know
    someone with a hydraulic press you can use that to bring the angle back (to 45°??).

    Operating the aux pump during TO & landing is a big plus for an electric pump. In a typical
    wobble pump installation the handle is not in a great spot for quick action so a failure on TO
    is worse case...

    ........The same situation with my rechargeable radio, if the radio is getting weak that also
    creates a safety consideration. .....Stating the obvious here -- a weak radio doesn't create a

    ........ By the way a 90 hp Great Lakes set the world record for the ‘most consecutive outside
    loops’ (131 for those of you playing at home).That 90 hp engine was likely producing more
    thrust than the...

    I've been in the front seat of the factory GL. At 6'5 you would not think that would be
    possible. I was younger and more flexible!

    I'm a bit taller than you and it was tight for me but workable. The airplane is larger than a
    Skybolt and the one I flew was a dog with only an O-320 for power. This one is a homebuilt so
    it may be qu...
