Hopefully, I am not very far behind you,
so I know what you mean about the
dust!

I can't wait to get mine outside jst to
wash it!

Also, what engine/prop combo do you have?

Keep us posted & be safe!

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.

I like the look of your panel. Can you provide some details and a better, clearer picture?

I know, I know! :oops:
I have no illusions that with 30 feet of landing area to , I will pull my handle to full flaps and drop her in.
I will do 1/3 on downwind, 1/3 on base and full flaps on final.
It's how I learned and know.
I kept the handle so maybe one day,,,,,,,,, :lol:
Oh,,,,, and I still have my nose wheel just in case!!!!!!!!

What do you have to keep your windows open? Looks small and neat if it works good.

Ok. I need P/N's, cost
and availability on those
gas shocks, please. :D

I have been a little leary about
trying to order some.

Thanks!

Sorry, I must be missing something, I am getting linked to the catalog page with six different sizes ranging from 4.33-9.05 inches. Still not sure what size, but from the picture you posted I would guess either the 7.08 or 8.26 inch extended length.

You want two of the McMaster 9417K461
miniature gas spring with eyelet fitting 7.08" extended length, 2.5" stroke, 30lb force

Hope this helps

Cheers,

John
