    & if the tank is behind you, you could buy a pair of these (plus a really good sound cancelling headset to drown out the laughter):

    Some Luscombe's has the fuel tank behind the seat with the fuel gauge on the front side of the tank so you have to turn around and look behind you.

    If it's 'pressure sensitive', does altitude affect it, or is it a case of 'degree of change' over it's length type thing?

    Some great fishing up there and because everyone thinks of it as a dry barren wasteland, you don't face nearly the competition you would get for a comparable lake elsewhere.

    It's fun, but it's just something I outgrew.

    Agreed 100%. I'm not fond of aerobatics as a "Hey that sounds like a lot of fun!" deal but then again, I'm not fond of a lot of things I have to do professionally but if it has to be done, it has to be done.
