Piper Cub Brake hose wanted

Re: 2019 Rally

I believe it's because the landing fee goes to Sywell, not to LAA. We get to go into the exhibition free.

Re: Taylor Mono, Constant nose up attitude

You could rig up a piece of bungee or a light spring to introduce a countering nose down force on the stick but it would almost certainly require mod approval.

Re: Acro Sport 1 (EAA Biplane)

Martin, I believe the plans are sold by the Experimental Aircraft Association - the American equivalent to LAA.
