Re: finally - an accurate tire inflator

I've had great luck with the $9.99 Harbor Freight inflator (https://www.harborfreight.com/pistol-grip-tire-inflator-with-gauge-68270.html). I have one at home and one at the hangar. Over the past 10 years the one at home had developed some leaks in the body, and the one at the hangar's hose was degr...

does this stuff work with tubes? any concern about the valve stem seam seal becoming "unsealable" over time?
Per their youtube channel, yes, as long as the valve is removable:

Re: Zizzo Liberte - folding bike

Steve,

Do the tires have any sealant in them? Maybe that could help you with your loss of air pressure? When I used to ride mountain bikes, we swore by Stan's:

Hey, it always will be too!

Best $3.99/month I spent to host this on a Virtual Private Server (VPS) - along with http://www.rvplane.com and http://www.tailnum.com and many other skunkworks projects :) .

Re: Zizzo Liberte - folding bike

Getting a foldable bike has been on my to-do list for a while. Potomac Airpark (W35) is a short distance from the C&O canal towpath. The longer I have the RV, the more and more I need reasons to fly it. All of the local restaurant runs have got boring over time. Back when I was looking at folding bi...

Bruce,

I think I am a little rusty in creating new forums, considering the last time I added a forum was when the RV-14 came out!

I think I got the RV-15 forum permissions squared away - can you check again please?

Re: New Image Hosting

I just changed the size of the thumbnails to full size for this plugin. Seems to work much better? Also, to use PostImage to attach pics to this forum, you don't need to upload from a file - you can copy and paste the pictures from other websites. On windows, after I have copied the image to the cli...

Re: Bluetooth music receiver $18

I recently purchased this $10.99 BT->1/8" stereo jack BT receiver for my old pickup truck off of Amazon. I needed to make a 1000 mile trip and the thought of listening to commercial ridden FM radio just wasn't appealing. The USB connector acts as just power. I already have BT built into my audio pan...

Black Otter 2022

While at Sun and Fun Marc and I ran into Bob Willis (Osh Welcome Wagon Driver, RV-6) and the first words out of his mouth were "What day is the Otter??".

Tuesday has worked well for us in the past, so it will this year also!

Re: a couple printed widgets

Steve, Very awesome! One idea I just had was sort of a tailwheel chock I could attach to my hangar floor. Right now I used a piece of blue painters tape to let me know how far back to pull my plane. Occasionally when distracted I pull it back too far, luckily never leading to any dented metal. This ...
