What I got out of the video is that Canards are more stable aircraft ... as I seldom find myself upside-down that much!
Great video Jon!

You know, there's a fine line between staying low enough to avoid the AAA and high enough to avoid small arms, arrows, and hurled rocks.

Kevin, can you do all of those moves???

Re: Q2 Revmaster original exhaust?

Bruce Crain
 

If you like your current Revmaster exhaust you can send it in to PlaneXhaust Corporation and have it copied in stainless.  1-866-312-4222.

+1 to Mike Dwyer's advice. When my stock Revmaster exhaust (inevitably) rusts out, I'm planning to follow his lead as best as possible. My guess is that it will end up looking something like the Kitfox or Dragonfly exhaust systems that Great Plains offers:

While 304 Stainless is clearly preferred, going DIY with carbon steel gives me an excuse to buy a welder 😁

Where did you get all that footage to project on the green-screen behind your airplane?  😉

My Dearest Kevin, 

I was absolutely sick all day yesterday thinking of you and your current situation.  While it was a frigid 28F here this morning (3,500' density altitude - woohoo!!), it was an otherwise nice day so I decided to see what I could do to make your existence just a little bit better.

 

I couldn't remember exactly what type of flying you prefer so I included as much variety as is available to me. The result includes elk, buffalo, and rocks.  Sadly, my camera batteries don't last long in the cold so I failed to capture all the fun I had.

 

Here it is: https://youtu.be/EFg1oADvlsM

 

Yeah… gotta look really close to see that wildlife.  My camera and airplane don't do so well taking photos of fixed items on the ground. 😕

 

Enjoy and Happy New Year!!

6°F. Windchill -6°. Doesn’t make any difference what the wind direction.
Doesn’t look good for the next 15 days either.
The good news? The hanger rent is due!!!
All of you that are flying, take some video so we frozen can fly too!!!

Goal for this year is 50+ hours flying time!

Happy New Year!
