2018 West Coast Gathering?

I am considering putting together another gathering during the Arlington Fly In.

Would anyone be interested?

This would be at KAWO (Arlington, WA) during July 6, 7, and 8.

Activities could include a Zenith Fly Out. We will also have access to a runway for flight activities during the fly in.

Rivets around the bubble doors

the plans don't really say which rivets to use on the bubble doors to the frame?  Is it the 30 aluminum or the 20 aluminum rivets.  It says to drill 30 holes but the 30 rivers in the finishing kit say for rear windows only.

An Inexpensive Cell Phone Trigger For Your Preheater.... That Gives You Piece Of Mind

I wanted to finally reveal an electronics project that some of you may want to build.

It is cold outside, the engines need to be warmed for long periods of time, and no one wants to go to the hangar and wait for hours while the engine slowly soaks in heat.

This solution is called the “Hangar Buddy”, and it is based on an incredible project by Maria DeGrazia. You may have seen it in the EAA Experimenter under the name “piWarmer”. This is my version that has been…
