    Homebuilt for tall pilot?

    RV-10 or RV-14, I might be biased though. Yeah C-172 was a little snug during training. I probably put two dents in it with the top of my head, one during some particular bad turbulence during an approach and the other when I bounced on landing.

    Van's RV Building

    RV-10 builder here, waiting on my wing kit. There have been a couple moments I wished I did a -12 instead mainly due to price and length of build time. Unfortunately most 4 place rentals I have available have gotten ridiculous in price and suck for capacity and performance.

    NA - Training a dog not to bark

    I know you don't want people recommending the shock collar, but I had a dog that the only thing that worked was the shock collar. Most dogs I trained, if they barked I could open the door and tell them no or yell no through the door after seeing it was something that I didn't want them barking...

    Where to build

    I am building in a 2/2.5 car garage. Due to other projects, kid's toys, a giant mill, etc. I current use about a 15'X5' space. Quite cramped, but doable for the tail section. As parts are completed I have to move them somewhere else for storage.

    Weaver, or isosceles?

    Without a vest, taking one in the chest front to back is supposed to have a better chance of survival than one that transverses the entire chest cavity (from one side to the other). Just what I was told by someone who main job was treating such wounds.

    Weaver, or isosceles?

    Isosceles. Its more precise and faster.

    BEEF ribs!

    My first attempt at any kind of rib. Usually I find them right next to all the other ribs, of course I don't look for them too often.

    Smoked ribs

    I've smoked them both and beef as well. I think some have mentioned they liked my St. Louis more due to more meat on the bone. 4 hrs smoked at 250, I prefer hickory, oak, or mesquite. Only use a dry rub, eater can choose to add sauce, a lot don't.

    PA 28 Student pilot 350 lbs

    I was probably over 300 pounds when I was asked by a coworker to sit in his 140 and help trouble shoot an issue he was having. I didn't step on the flaps, other than that seemed like a non issue. As far as flying it, as long as we could have gotten weigh and balance good, then go for it. I think...

    Practical Use Of The Pilot Personality Profile

    Hope this helps. (Attachment) Sorry I was in a rush, there is still a lot of formatting I could do to make it better, but should at least be readable.
