    Every pilot should preserve their hearing so they don't crash into things they don't hear while saving their eyesite of things they don't see!

    What, no testing of the performance of the sound barrier?

    Just wishful thinking.

    It's not intuitive but I have found co issues in the cabins of tube and fabric cockpits originating from the tail. There can be a low pressure area that sucks the exhaust in through the tail and feeds it to the pilot. Sealing off behind the pilot seat or baggage compartment as appropriate helped eliminate the issues. The digital gauges are invaluable when troubleshooting such issues as well as defending against surprise attacks.

    Gyro, what type of foam did you use for the sound proofing? Also, just an FYI, you can get a tripod from Goodwill for about $5.00, the head cam makes me dizzy.
