Mark I feel your pain.Last years inspection revealed similar issues related to rust[mild steel].Only one pipe was rusted thru but we know what that means.Revmaster will make me another one in 30 days for $510 and I would do that in a heartbeat If it weren't for retirement.I bowed up and used some

N995BG has 24 gal. header tank[Rand Robinson original fiberglass]Still flying after 27 years.Do I think safety is a good thing? You bet I do.Weight and balance is not an issue with proper distribution of airplane parts.My trim indicator runs in the middle with 15 gallons.With full fuel I was able

Here's my story concerning transponders.Rick Human gave a good description of Mode S and ADSB.I removed my KT-76 and ACK30 encoder from the KR because it was dead weight as far as I was concerned.The units worked fine but my flying was not in class A,B,or C airspace.And yes it is better to have

This is a good project for the money.20 years ago,I gave $2900 For my KR and it was not nearly as well done or complete.Someone will get a good plane.My KR has 750+hrs and still going strong.Tommy W. On Sat, May 31, 2014 at 8:46 AM, MrKswildman . via KRnet < krnet at list.krnet.org> wrote: >

My biggest headache was with the 32mm posa.Too leaky for hand prop and too lean on the high end.In all fairness to posa,mine was probably too big[32mm] for an 1835.Had good luck with the GPAS zenith and Ellison EFS2.The Ellison gave me some problems until I discovered a hole in the

Just got to get in on this one.I agree with almost everything said.Been flying my KR2 since 1990 without flaps or b board.Not because I don't want it but just haven't put one on.Landing is not a problem for me.I did own and fly an Avid Flyer with a VW conversion.The flaperons were great for

The longer the prop the better climb performance of the aircraft.The magic of prop science never seems clear.That maybe why we call it EXPERIMENTAL.And yes I do learn a lot from it.Tommy W. On Thu, May 8, 2014 at 12:12 PM, Randall Smith via KRnet < krnet at list.krnet.org> wrote: > Every prop I
