    Actually, now that you mention it... Chandelle sounds right. (I think I asked the controllers
    one time.) Either way, I sure would like to move to the GSP area someday, preferably with a
    runway in my b...

    Is that in that neat little airpark off to your left when you depart 22 at KGSP? It goes by
    pretty fast in the jet but I always thought it looked pretty nice...

    It's not too big of a deal to adjust them. A few things to keep in mind: To use the
    tensiometer, you need to knowthe wire size (Diameter) taken fromthe ROUNDpart near the end of
    the wire, NOT the flat...

    From the Lycoming AD 2004-10-14:Definition of Propeller Strike (i) For the purposes of this AD,

    I like the under-the-wing idea. The pitot tube onour S2-Ccomes right out of the leading edge of
    the lower left wing, and it is a MONSTER. I walked into the sonofab*tch the other day, and you
    oughtta s...

    Like some of the others have stated, the blast media is not as critical as the pressure
    andtime, and therefore theamount of material removed. (Ever see a bead blast gun eat it's own
    nozzle? Eventually...

    Another option for those with a pitot-only tube is to use the nearly flush-mounted static ports
    found on single engine Cessnas and the like. They don't cost a whole lot, are available from
    AS&S an...

    IMO, the Lycomings are an all-aroundbetter bet than the Continentals for aerobatic stuff.I
    think they are more easily suited to installation of inverted oil. Continentals seem to run
    hotter than lycom...

    Beej,Nope, spars are not routed. I actually didn't figure I'd find anything anywhere on the
    Sparcraft wings, but I thought I'd give it a shot to see if anybody had an old copy of the
    Sparcraft Plans/m...
