zenith hds/xl by Ted Leon
From my limited view point, the 601 HDS is a GREAT airplane as advertised. Is seems just as fast the the XL, not accounting for altitude, true air speed, etc. OK the stall factor may be a consideration for some? I guess the LSA situation is the BIG factor here. What do you think, Zenith...

There are many aircraft that allow for a variety of engines. Some engine makers even supply cowling/nose bowl kits for popular types (Rans, Vans) etc. So, what do you think of using a Jabiru 5100 (8 cyl) in a Falco in place of the Lycoming io-360? Jabiru is narrower and less tall, but is a few...

Wooden laminations by SkyDaddy
About five years ago I cut and planed Douglas Fir planks for the landing gear of my Fly Baby, but we moved before I got them glued up. I'm finally getting back into the swing of things. Should I re-plane them to get a fresh-cut surface before I glue them?
