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…Continue

I accumulated this over 5 years and 4 months. Annuals have been non-events for the airframe - finally had to install new brake pads during my recent annual and that's about it for parts over 5 years! At about 100 hrs I did replace the 800 series tires with 600 series, but that was just personal preference. They look like they'll be good for one more…Continue

Aside from the changes that come with the Super Duty (SD) design (i.e. longer wing, higher GW, larger engine options, 3rd seat, etc...) what else would you like to see in an "SD Cruzer" that the current Cruzer does not have?

"That which does not kill us makes us stronger." - Friedrich Nietzsche
Since I started flying my 601 back in 2007 I have found it to be a fantastic machine for exploring and adventure. I have enjoyed expanding my view of the world by flying over the country side, looking out at the great sights below and taking pictures from time to time; actually thousands of them.
In the past few years I have had in mind to fly all the way to the tip of South America. I…
