Re: Buying my 1st express.

I was told to go over the fence at 90-100 knots but I've not flown one so can't speak with any experience. Been looking to buy one for 6 years, though. Most were just out of my price range. A couple were not worth 50 cents. One had the seats built too high and I had to slump over just to sit in it. ...

vortex generators

Has anyone actually installed the Stoll-Speed Vortex Generators? They sound remarkable and I bought the complete set from AS&S. Their videos show an Express and getting 15 knots lower stall speeds!!! While losing nothing on the top end. Too good to be true? Looks like it might also give the hori...

so many nose gear leg collapses!

It's probably old new to you guys but it's new news to me. One bird I looked at even had two nose gear collapses over it's life!!! Which legs should we get or change to? Has a certain leg proven itself over time?
Thanks.

Re: Liquid cooling

Look at some of the great combos that Vintage-Air offers. You could even have air conditioning, too!

Re: express taildragger?

The obvious questions:
1. Is it dangerous?
2. What is wrong with it and/or it's design?
3. How hard would it be to convert to a tricycle gear?
4. This may be impossible for anyone to know, but that affect would it have on the CG envelope(s) to make it a trike?

Thanks!

Build manuals 1&2?

A guy has some Express CT kit parts for sale but says he has build manuals for the early (CT?) model AND the manual(s) for the later model. Is this real? How much of a difference is there?
Thanks.
