I like the desert color scheme!

Beautiful!

There are many things that happen really fast when you are
flying an airplane. There is no sense in rushing any of the others.

I would much rather be looking down at the runway, than up at it.

How do you like the STOL fences? Do you use them with micro VGs on the wing or in lieu of them?

I sure would appreciate the simplicity of one, that's for sure but, they're just too whimpy at high DA without a turbocharger and I've never heard tell of one in our weight class that would qualify.... especially hauling amphibs.

This Thousand Dollar Whore, has been running regularly after upgrading with:

Porting and polishing, crankshaft and camshaft ground to match turbo, dished pistons, quadruple sequential coils, programmable ECU for instantaneous demand of O2/fuel ratios, programmable electronic turbo wastegate control with 2 push button scramble-boost settings in addition to baseline boost, rev limiter, 4 EGT senders, rerouting engine/turbo oil lines to maximize engine lubrication, balanced flywheel, larger remote oil cooler switched to left fuselage for less-ugly streamlining, dedicated engine functions computer screen in instrument panel, thin wall stainless exhaust, removeable glass-pack interchangeable with a muffler, and about a half a dozen other things I've forgotten about and probably don't want to know about anyway!

Yep, they're welded shut. Airworthy but, since it was in the hangar, doing weight reduction drilling, grinding and polishing of rims and putting bigger RG nose wheels on, plus lengthening all Amphib gear legs for bush grade-ground clearance of the floats.

thread? I think this would be a good way to
compare notes with pics, on paint schemes,
etc, as well as motivation for us ner' do wells.

I also think it would be good for potential
new customers to see these jewels in action.

What do you think?

Johnny C!


Exactly this would be a very good way because it gives complete insight and motivation as well. i completely agree with your point johnny. i would suggest to give link of some videos as well.
thanks
