  1. I got 3 airports around here with Ul94 fuel ( Chicago ) and last time I check it was going for $4.30 - a lot more than the pump gas but still reasonable.
  2. The new A32 is actually quite fast - somewhere around CTLS speeds .. As far as the greenhouse effect - you got nothing to complain about ๐Ÿ™‚ Try flying in my Sting ๐Ÿ™‚ - in all seriousness, when I was buying my plane I was actually a bit worried about dealing with what is basically 360 degree open canopy during hot summer months but ultimately is not bad at all once you up in the air.
  3. Quite a story ... as I always keep reminding people, whatever you do , donโ€™t go to Illinois , nothing good will come out of it ....
  4. It is true it Flight Design planes offer awesome visibility for high wings , probably the best among LSA planes except for Aeroprakt models which I think are superior on that regard. .
  5. Are you talking about Lewis University ? ๐Ÿ™‚ Anyway when I first time disassemble something that is composed of more than a few parts , I just document the whole process with a few key pictures - with all these digital cameras included in every smartphone it takes no time to do it ...
  6. When I started out trying to do minor servicing things like tires , oil etc ... back in 2017 I was asking very same questions and I between googling stuff and talking to people on forums, I was able to figure out pretty much everything. I mean basic stuff is NOT that difficult - I wouldn't touch certain heavier tasks related to engine maintenance because these require specialized knowledge and lots of experience but most of that stuff is pretty trivial - beside the engine, these planes are not that complicated.
  7. Cotter pins are one time use items. I get mine from here https://www.aircraftspruce.com/menus/ha/cotterpins.html but someone else here on this forum can perhaps help you with exact size you will need - I donโ€™t have Matco wheels.
  8. What I generally do is to straighten the flared out end so it lines up with the other end and then cut it as close to the nut as I can on the flared out side and only then pull it out.
  9. Does it look like this ? I was dealing with this sort of contamination last year and it went away as soon as I started filtering my fuel ( https://mrfunnel.com/Mr._Funnel/Home.html )
  10. Lovely pictures and a nice looking bird ... but your previous yellow bird was truly one of a kind ๐Ÿ™‚
  11. Seems to be a crapshoot really ... I got 300 hours on one set of floats and then had to change them due to unrelated issue ( physically chipped edge ). Our local flight school with Remos planes is on its second engine for 2 of their planes ( 3000 hours altogether on both engines ) and as far as I was told they had to change them twice I think ...but then again, on another forum I have seen SportCruiser owners complaining about having to change their floats 3 times in the span of few years ... I guess you change them and then keep praying ... ๐Ÿ™‚
  12. Ok... thatโ€™s a bit crazy. If you need so badly a plane that can go that far, I would say get a bigger plane ๐Ÿ™‚
  13. But that is still averages right ? How much capacity they will need to make sure that solar is as reliable as power plants without random peaks and valleys - if they can do that then sure - ultimately , as a consumer I donโ€™t really care as long quality of service remains the same.
  14. Thats assuming solar panel installations are similar to power plants with nearly 100% availability which they arenโ€™t - not even close. I am all for clean energy - I say go nuclear. Clean, reliable and waste storage requirements are much less intrusive to the environment than solar installations.
