    Both are planes, I'd take either one. Or just get a bi-wing, then you have both! :yesnod:

    Be really careful. When I switched to 172s from Cherokees, I kept rolling upside down involuntarily to keep the wing in view when looking down. Made landings really tricky.

    The solution to prevent that is to place a cup of water on top of the panel. If you attempt to roll upside down you'll spill the water (unless you're Bob Hoover) and that will be your warning you not to go there. If you do continue, you risk coming from together, and I don't think you want that.

    I can't seem to land wheels down these days anyway, so maybe it'll be a natural transition.

    My problem is I'm always thirsty when I fly. It will be like Homer and the God waffle stuck to the ceiling. "I know I shouldn't eat[drink] thee."

    These (and the others I deleted to save space) are striking photos. Intense colors and not a hint of the haze that I know was present. I'd love tips on how you were able to get them to look so good? Lens filter? Post processing? Special camera settings?

    Looking forward to participating in the next event.

    @orange glad you made it back on time. I had a similar experience last time I flew out of FRG. A long line of traffic waiting to take off and "Ready for departure/release" being a state of readiness with a variable definition.

    I didn't even notice it, until now. LOL It wasn't on purpose. I couldn't drink a beer, I stopped drinking soda a few weeks ago, water has no taste, so juice was my only option. And out of cranberry, pinapple, and orange, I was forced to order it.
    And I ate my lunch on the flight back since it took 35 minutes to make a quesadilla. But it was pretty good.

    My fancy camera was my Android phone. Takes much better pictures than my husband's iPhone. I used to be really into photography and had tons of cameras and lenses, and burned a lot of time in dark rooms. Then everything went digital and I couldn't afford to keep up. The only thing I did to the pictures was bring them into Photoshop and adjust the color balance and levels. Nothing else. No filters or anything and, actually, the last two pictures I didn't do anything to.

    When you get one I demand a ride and a grass landing....after you do it a few times! :D

    yeah, that guy has some skilz. Notice the skid into a slip to lose speed and altitude. And the wheels up into ground effect... The guy knows his plane.

    I was stalking your airport's website last night. Didn't you say you guys have someone up there who teaches aerobatics?

    Yea that take off must have had some serious pucker factor. He was lower than the tree line for quite a while gaining speed before he pulled up...pretty cool to watch.

    Thank-you. I downloaded and installed GIMP and was able to dramatically improve the look of several in-flight photos by adjusting the colors and levels.

    A great instructor! He doesn't instruct because he has to. He is an old timer who is more interested in training safe pilots than making money. I really enjoy flying with him.
