    try making a set of skis with the wheels poking through the ski just enough so that you can still fly off a hard surface with the skis on. some full size skis are retractable so that the ski can be lifted up for landing on hard surfaces but the wheel sticking down a little bit into the snow isn't a problem.

    Bartman I am currently working on a set of floats (Amphibious floats) for my Carbon Z Cessna 150. waiting for a friend of mine who is making a set of mounting brackets for the front wheel assemblies. Hopefully the front and rear wheels will be retractable.depending on time available. Like most to many projects not enough time. Some day it would be cool to have the Manufactures come up with Amphibious floats.

    This is as good as any place to ask this question, we all spend some time in this forum.
    Building a 20cc profile. The servo needs to be mounted on the side of the profile and space is limited. On the carburetor is a spring return which I never release, just get 100 plus oz servo and metal gear. But I was thinking if I just release the spring and not remove it. Will this allow me to use a digital mini servo. Very little force required to open and close the carburetor without a spring. What are your thoughts on this and would you do it. If you do, what mini servo would you use.
  7. Just release the spring. It will work just fine.

    Here is one for what it is worth. The best thing I have found to use my leave blower for (A Snow Blower) finished Blowing snow off all my vehicles, Deck and side walks this morning after getting 3" of snow last night. Only took 15 minutes with very little effort

    It's snowing again here in the Black hills. So time to do some repairs. I was going to go out flying with two of my biplanes, started to inspect every thing, pulled on all the flight surfaces and the rudder on my PT-17 almost came off. the crappy tape hinge and what little foam in the middle was lose. pulled the rudder assembly off and installed 3 small hinge point hinged to repair the lousy tape hinge. Good to go now
