Skycatcher Rudder Pedals

Talk about airplanes! At last count, there are 39 (and growing) FAA certificated S-LSA (special light sport aircraft). These are factory-built ready to fly airplanes. If you can't afford a factory-built LSA, consider buying an E-LSA kit (experimental LSA - up to 99% complete).

And like Paul says, the key was soft, supple shoes! Now, I keep those old $20 Walmart shoes at the hangar, and they go on before every single flight! They're no good for walking, so if I'll be doing that where I'm headed--or I'm going to stay overnight--my regular shoes go in the luggage box with me.

Before I "got it" my brake pads used to last 200-300 hours. Nowadays they never seem to wear out!

Have you tried your new brake pads yet?

About set to slap a new set on. I have one wheel/caliper set that, because it is not perfectly aligned, wears out one side of the pads instead of the whole pad, uniformly.

But I don't have the testiculos to put those Chinese pads on; I opted instead for a pair of US-made, from my local Harley Davidson dealer.

How about you? Are you running the Chinese ones on your Sting?
