    New not blue gas...

    Lead isn't good..... ok, ok I get it. The LL battle is lost, that's obvious too. Do I believe the environmental cost is worth losing "affordable" hi-po fuel? I don't.... but we really have crossed the Rubicon on this subject. I'm 52 this year. I was born in mariposa ca in the shadow of Yosemite...

    The ramp queen...

    She's a drag queen for certain. It'll burn around 15 gph on lift off and down around 10 for level cruise. Wolf in sheep's clothing, I like it. Always did get a kick out of a good sleeper.

    The ramp queen...

    Not technically false info. Gary said it flew very nicely but there was something wonky about the design specified cg. The factory volunteered flight testing to nail it all down... it all seems completely understandable to me. Everything except posting a video of spin tests publicly without a...

    The ramp queen...

    Just got this from the horses mouth so to speak. Turns out the plane flew beautifully. Being the first completed customer ship flight testing for load and cg were offered at Mexico MO. Multiple cg configs were being tested. The test pilot was a little low on the spin and felt more comfortable...

    Land ownership ?

    It's different in every state, as I mentioned earlier. Here it is 7 years and you must pay taxes on the piece your possessing, at least that's what was taught 15 years ago. https://www.ascentlawfirm.com/how-does-adverse-possession-work-in-utah/

    The ramp queen...

    It looks completely normal to me. I'll be calling Gary today. Yesterday if flew the pattern once but had radio issues so the cfi landed. He didn't have anything negative to say with regard to handling characteristics. He said it felt perfectly normal and that it felt a little heavier than a 172.

    Land ownership ?

    In most states adverse possession only works if the land pirate pays the taxes for multiple years. Where I live it's 7 years.

    How lift is generated

    Where as rotor wings beat it into submission, whereby altitudes is unwillingly surrendered as a result.

    Tube and fabric Ramp Queen life ?

    Then buy it accordingly, get it in annual and fly it like you stole it till you can't, then sell it to me for scrap....lol with or without fwf.

    Tube and fabric Ramp Queen life ?

    Agreed... ceconite polyfiber and the other dacron based systems will last a long, long time.... that however is not your main boogy man... light weight, flimsy piper ribs are your Achilles heal. Snow load flattens them as well as just about any load other than a flying load. If you're...
