    Poll: Ban Kolibri

    Ban this no-name, unidentified troll. His anonymous posts are inarguably hostile. His mode is to assassinate the character of others. He brings nothing but hatred to this forum as referenced by name calling, sexual references by inferring two men flying together are boyfriends, slandering, etc...

    Pilot friends don't let pilot friends drive

    The title says it all. No adventure here this weekend because I made the mistake of driving instead of flying to Disney this past weekend. Actually I should say that I made good pilot judgment by not flying out on the evening that I decided to drive because of a inclement weather. No, all good...

    Prop repair in the field

    During a flight today we heard a tink followed by a whisping. I thought it could be either something with the exhaust or the prop. I made a precautionary landing at a nearby field and discovered a small prop strike. I couldn't find anything the aircraft shed. Possibly a lighter in my hoody? We...

    Rotax reman

    I'm getting my 582 blue head reman soon. The bing carburetors looks like I can do myself with the cheap rebuild kits. Does that sound correct? I'm going to send my blue head to Mississippi for the tear down and rebuild. Does the gearbox usually also need an overhaul if not used for a few years...

    RAF 2000 Back in Action

    I've been super busy lately but I have finally gotten some great video up on YouTube. I didn't gyro much this winter because I've been flying the Maule, working towards my check out. During Valkaria Airfest, I got the bug again and I've been home tearing it up. We had a blast. I hope we can...

    N235 Comes Home!

    My dad and I bought a Maule MT7-235 yesterday and brought her home from Moultrie, GA. Some may remember me poking around for STOL airplanes a while back. It's got the Lycoming IO-540 in it, full Garmin IFR, AP, and a few other bells and whistles. A true jewel on the airfield. I toured the...

    Magic Bushing

    I noticed that my attitude was a bit nose high lately and the split mast was offset from a marker I made a while back. I pulled the rotors off and broke the mast down. Magic bushing needed replacing after 100 hours. It ate itself. I had ordered two recently so I was ready with a replacement. Dug...

    A Visit to the Maule Factory

    Kim and I toured the Maule factory last week in Moultrie, GA. It's not rotor-craft related, but still a neat experience to share in the off-topic. We left early before sun-up and drove about four hours to Moultrie. We were met by Brent Maule just before noon at the factory. Brent was kind...
