    The dead E-01 is yellow. I early had removed an orange Ameri-king (sp?) due to an AD.

    Be well aware of cold seizure issues - you don't want coolant returning to the engine too cool!

    I think it gets into play and flex in the system. I'd say if you grabbed a hold of the trim flap and try to move it, as long as it would hold firm against you it would likely be okay.

    Be careful, I have read of issues of flutter in some such applications of the Vernier cables.

    If you maximize angle of attitude at rest on the ground, I'm guessing you're doing so by use of shorter main gear. Doing so reduces your useable angle of attack on the ground by not allowing as much rotation of the fuselage during take off and landing. Put it up level and put a skid on where the tailwheel would mount - my skid is square tubing filled with lead to help CG.
    This should probably be in a different thread.

    Thanks for all your updates. Sorry to hear about the stroke, but glad that recovery is going well so far.

    Insert pic of monkey covering his ears.
    That official weather station is two miles straight east of me. I thought it felt a little extra chilly.

    We are all spoiled this year, I haven't even seen 40 below yet (though I haven't paid close attention on the coldest days) let alone the real cold.
    When I used to fly the open-air Trike on skis, I used one of those car seat heaters, about 5 amps.
