  1. You can use the tan kid sized ones. For my wife I bought pink women’s size ear plugs and custom made them myself because the yellow foamies were too big for her as well.
  2. Professors, Prostitutes, and Pissants?
  3. From what I understand, the whole smooth wing business is more to do with maintaining laminar flow and the way it affects lift than about reduction of forward facing parasitic drag. That's why most Mooney wings don't have dometop rivets on top for the front third. But behind that point, the airflow is already turbulent so the gains would be negligible. Keeping the leading edge clean of bugs and waxed probably goes a longer way than micromanaging the inspection plates that are further back and underneath.
  4. Patrick, if you want to reduce drag in your C model, put all emphasis on the cowl. You’ll find more knots in there than modding the rest of the plane combined. The amount of work taping all those inspection panels and your ASI won’t be sensitive enough to register a difference!

    Hey! Would you just stop it? Would you just hold on a minute? Look at you guys... fighting on the Malaka-Laka board! You should be ashamed of yourselves! Back at the airport, we were nothing! Now we've risen to the highest level, but you're throwin' it all away! If you've forgotten what MooneySpace means to America, you have only to look at this board - the Malaka-Laka Balance Board of Trust. Don't you see what we have here? A forum where guys with bad backs and bad knees can... get together and compete on the same field as youthful guys with smokin airplanes. But more than anything, isn't this forum about gettin' together with your friends and just havin' a good time? I remember. I remember a long time ago, I didn't have anybody. You guys took me in. I guess that's why it kills me to see you like this. If we can't be friends... then the heart and soul are out of this group. Certainly out of me. I know I'll never get that back again. We have sullied the waters of the Lagoon of Peace! I'm begging you, for the love of our Caribbean brothers, dudes, stop this madness!
  6. Without the extra 5” of baggage space, how would Marauder be able to fit his girlfriend’s baggage?? Doubt your short body has the space Mr Belville...
  7. I’m no expert but I never use it unless there’s a suspicion of a misreading, then I might give it a tug and check what I get and then switch back.
  8. About the magic touch or the giving people money to look comfortable?
  9. NJ to Key West in 7 hours Denver to NJ in 9 hours Phoenix to Chicago in 9 hours Dallas to NJ in 8 hours NJ to Winnipeg in 8 hours NJ to San Marcos Texas into a headwind in 11 hours There’s a few off the top of my head. And yes I wear a halo, fly LOP, and slide my seat back. Those of you who don’t slide your seat back in cruise should try it some time, maybe you’ll go farther faster on less fuel
  10. Who can stay feet on the pedals for 10 hours straight!? Takes all of a few second to slide back or slide up again. Plus you probably make up for those few seconds in going a knot faster. Sheesh every Mooneyhole knows that!
  11. Bob, you must either have a magic touch or you offered those people a lot of money to act so comfortable. Actually what I think nobody mentioned is the pilot's comfort with rear seat passengers on short vs mid body. When I slide forward to be in the pedals for takeoff and landing, there is a ridiculous amount of space behind me. However, except for a local sightseeing flight, I don’t want to sit the whole trip that way. My J allows me to slide back and get comfortable and still allow an adult to sit comfortably behind me. In a short body, someone is getting their knees busted, the only question is in the front or the rear seat depending on seat position!
  12. The yellow tips... after you wear them a few hours you forget they're there. I know someone who tried to jump out of the plane with the headset still on because it's so light and unnoticeable. Also good luck with one of those head squeezers for more than 5 hours!
  13. Dunno if we'll make it this year. That shop that someone in this post, not going to mention any names brian, suggested still has my plane!
