    I was cleaning out our auto shop last week, rooting through the really old stuff at the back of the shelves. In among the carburetor cleaner and the hardened tubes of Permatex I found this old can covered...

  • Great photography and commentary! Iceland has been high on the list for a while, and this just bumped it higher. BTW, also loved Arnar's vimeo that is linked in the Featured Videos section. -DP

  • The spring cost just over a grand for a one-off order. Greg- I haven't actually had my first taste of titanium yet, so I don't know yet whether it is habit-forming!

  • Rob, the titanium spring is supposed to be about a third lighter, so a few pounds at best. They make the leaves thicker than on the original one, not for strength, but for desired rigidity and springiness. I didn't do it for weight so much as because it will never rust or corrode, should never break, and is rated to a bajillion duty cycles.

    Bagarre How much does a titanium tail spring set one back these days?
    6 months ago
  • Ha! Good ideas (Have a helmet already). Actually, I think what I need is a hangar- also a specialty of yours I realize. Need some land first though. Just not in Soldotna.

  • Greg- Honestly, I'm running out of stuff. But I know I can always turn to you for ideas!

  • Also, a correction to what I posted earlier: Titanium embrittlement from contact with cad-plated hardware is ONLY an issue in the presence of extreme heat. The reason the titanium main landing gear STC specs non-cad-plated hardware at the axle attach is because of the potential for high heat from the brakes. If a tail spring gets that hot, you've got bigger problems!

  • Got word that the titanium tail spring for the 170 is finally ready and shipping out. (See below from last summer). Excited to get it and install it!
