I'm planning on traveling to Osh from Dallas/FW Texas. I'd like to suggest that we should all communicate with each other as to who might have a place to park a plane, or who might have a place to park a person for the night while traveling. My biggest concern with this trip is getting stuck in weather. If anyone is available as an emergency destination, or just willing to host a couple travelers Zodiac builders between DFW-Tulsa-Columbia MO-Brodhead WI-OSH…Continue

Recently rejetted from a .255 to .250 b/c I was running rich at high end.

Thanks Michael! Thanks again for the great tips you provided recently. They were extremely helpful.
Thanks for noticing the fuel line being so close to the channel. I went and checked it and it is not actually touching but very close and probably would touch with the engine running. I will slice a piece of rubber tubing lenghtways and glue it over the channels edge.

PS...just noticed your profile.... my son is a Project Engr. for Morley Const. in LA.
Have 5 hr.s now on the Piper Sport and appreciate your comments on the nose wheel. I expect 601XL to be much easier. My background comes from ultralight that had steerable nose, and the Piper has been a pain. I guess those that have no comparison get used to it, but I'll be glad to be out of it.
Word is that Chinese bought Piper...just heard that. Don't know how true it is. Here in Prescott, AZ we only have the one Sport Pilot training location... and they only have the one LSA.
