    Anybody with hot wire foam cutting experience near Savannah?

    I have always used a variable transformer with decent results and better wire heat control. Amazon link for Variable Transformers

    HBA First Annual Home Built Aircraft Meet

    I vote for Triple Tree, it doesn't get any more grassroots than a 7000' grass strip with plenty of spots to camp around it. Triple Tree Aerodrome

    Aircraft Speeds

    Having built a couple of aircraft I can vouch that build quality affects everything. I wanted to know advertised specs just to see where each plane fits in the grand scheme of things. The Kitplanes annual listing is what I was looking for, thanks! Is there one for certified aircraft?

    Aircraft Speeds

    Is there a list anywhere of experimental (and/or certified) aircraft listing their performance specs in comparison?

    Best decision ever.....JUST DO IT !!!

    I had one of those young "time collector" CFI's wasting my hours to go commercial, we spent lots of hours (40+) flying the same pattern and/or occasionally doing maneuvers. One day we went to the practice area and did maneuvers, but he (we?) didn't check for TFRs and managed to bust one...

    Insurance?

    I race cars and fly aircraft, in racing we always say "You'll never enjoy racing until you are comfortable pushing the racecar off a cliff". My insurance doubled last year, so I chose the liability only option. I feel the same way about my aircraft, I can probably safely land in a field or...

    Certificated to Experimental Exhibition conversion?

    Why not? It means we can do all types maintenance and/or possible upgrades and get a 2nd set of eyes at the end of the year to double check our work.

    Build area tips and advice

    Air compressor and air lines? I have them all around my shop and there is never one where I am working at the time, I have added 1/2 as many outlets since originally building the shop and still could use more. Bright LED lights everywhere, shadows when you are blocking the light is frustrating.

    Are there plans for a scratch builable amphibious aircraft

    They were complete, but I think you could swap out wings from other sources.

    Are there plans for a scratch builable amphibious aircraft

    I purchased plans for the Volmer many years ago with an idea of eventually building one. The local EAA chapter acquired one in need of repair a year or so ago and they should have it back together in a year or so. They are well designed and built strong, but be prepared for a lengthy build time.

    Spaceship 2 amphibian

    I wonder if it can be scaled up, that would make for a sweet 4 seat plane with 150 hp.

    Best Cheap Hanger Door I have ever seen

    I find that hard to believe, that would mean that every garage door wouldn't meet the wind loading requirements.
