    Kitfox never had a sling seat but you could easily fit custom seats in a model 3 with a bit of welding.

    Oh I like them and they are faster but not by much mostly I feel safer. I say that because the materials I used in the first set were from 1984 and Always made me wonder Not saying there was anything wrong with them but Ya know, and the new ones I built to 1550 gross weight specs with 1200lbs wing struts So yeah nice and solid plane

    Guessing not the best otherwise we would see way more of it. Its a really Cool plane I looked it over at Oshkosh and the guy is talented  but 600hp is probably 25 gallons an hr to  see 125mph No thanks.

  8. TJay added a post in a topic Interesting comparison of descent rates in Avid verses Kitfox   

    I noticed that with My new wing too. Sink rate is faster but floats more in ground effect. That could be because I come in faster with the new wing because it sinks faster. Another thing I noticed is the CG range on the new wing is way bigger. With my old wing 25lbs max in my rear baggage compartment would make it fly nose high and be all squirrely in the sky the new wing you hardly notice the extra weight. These small airplanes will talk to you .

    Stretching an airplane question?
    Who has first hand experience with this and what does it really do? All I hear is it makes the airplane more stable in flight But what really does that mean? My airplane does not really feel unstable I don't think. But I have nothing to compare it to either. Does it help make it fly strait and level hands off? I sure wouldn't think it could help any with side to side rocking or anything or do much in turbulence. Let me know what you all think. Thanks TJay
