The sets sent to me appear to be foam floats covered in a blue coating. Didn't they used to be hollow epoxy shells? If you look closely,...

As long as people don't screw with their engines, a Rotax will last forever. You're suggesting screwing with it. Don't assume you know more then the designers. Unless you only fly in Denver and...

68F is a nice day. You should have warmed up fairly quickly. Absolutely no need for preheating. You should be able to warm up in 10 minutes or faster at 32F. I've always found warming up at 1,800...

I would not assume that the Rotax test for floats applies to the MS80-430 floats. They're different floats. The only thing that matter is if the horizontal float pins align at the same location...

I would search in the FAA database for all RV-12s in NC. Then go to each county tax web site and search for that aircraft to obtain the tax value. That's what I did for my airplane. Some county...
