Re: GPS antennae position

That is the location of choice for many. I have had no issues at all after using that location for several hundred hours with two different airplanes.

Re: Newbie with Pneumatic Squeezer Woes

Yep, that's home. If you arrive during business hours, you can always get a ride in the county truck over to the north access gate to shorten the walk. If Hemmingway's gets old, there is Knoxie's (high end) and the Crab Shack (low end) a shorter distance away. But no Bay views at either of those.

Re: Newbie with Pneumatic Squeezer Woes

I never take shortcuts when buying tools for my RV or any other home project. Says the man who posted a picture of Harbor Freight derived wing jacks. So, will Chinese pistons make metric or SAE size holes in your wing when your Rube Goldberg setup fails? :P Just busting on you my friend. I have the...

Re: RV Mini Series by Restless Crow Studios

Awesome! Wade has mad skilz, you have mad travels. A match made in heaven.

I subscribed to his channel. I never do crap like that. Looking forward to the series, I did not even cheat by looking at his 'raw' videos.

I like all the pro reasons, I say yes. M'lady got work off and will be there, she is mostly vegetarian these days, so we can all taunt her with bloody flesh.

Re: Panel Upgrade

Just a thought if you do pull for a bench power test, the SX will auto-switch between two 12v sources, I would apply power individually to both inputs as part of the troubleshooting.

I think I will be up for all this fun. Karen's working, but I might bring my grown son if he's interested.

Re: Black Otter 2017

Scratch that plan, dammit. Too many issues unrelated to the rebuild came up, not to mention a tornado which JUST missed the hangar. You folks have fun, see you next year!

Re: Black Otter 2017

Okay, the long instrument / electrical makeover is withing striking distance of being done. I was able to start the engine today, need to get a tach signal but have a good idea on that after some research tonight.

Re: RIP Co-Pilot Wyatt

No dog until 80?! This is why I'm not married to a dream killer. I recently adopted a Great Pyrenees (see Leandra puppies on Google). I can't imagine life without a dog, they are one of the best things in life. There may be cracks in the 'not until 80' timeline. Recent text she sent to my daughter,...

Aircraft: .55 lb to 55 lb must be registered with the FAA Pilot: Fly for fun or education anything up to 55 lb with no certification.

Re: This is why I come here!

Bob, the thread is long in the tooth, Mike's post was made last June, Bruce just resurected it. I would bet Gathering Cinco is in June as well this year. I MIGHT have my panel back together by then. :bang:

Re: OSHKosh Beer Tasting

I was thinking just this week about what to brew up for the (now) annual OSH beer tasting, since my Chocolate Bock was a hit last year. What relatively crowd pleasing style should I look at, or what brew should I try to clone? I'd certainly need a crowd of critics to judge it sometime, prior to OSH ...

Re: RIP Co-Pilot Wyatt

CJ, just upon this thread, glad to have met Wyatt the day I met you. Good dogs are easy to find, but cool dogs are hard to come by. We put down our good dog earlier last year, and then our cool dog on Christmas Eve. Tough year. Re: travelling light, I have been informed by my Captain that we don't g...
