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!

Express wanted

Kevin, do you still have an Express for sale?

How about anyone else?

I'm in the immediate market.

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.

Bird I looked at. comments, please

Saw a beautiful bird yesterday that is up for sale. However, is has several concerns and at least one problem so I'd like to get advice from out "collective." :) The one safety of flight problem is the flap motor. It appears to stick at random times. The owner isn't sure whether it is an e...
