    Re: 2003 Husky A-1B N349AM

    Ha! Forgot about the last post. Sucker.....


    Bought a new mount for my GoPro Session camera and thought I would give it a quick try. It has a bit of shimmy when under power that I am not real happy with. I was pressed for time so didn't get to recheck it or move it to the other side. Will play with it more hopefully soon.

    Just wanted to throw the vid out there to help entice Arashatash to move East after he retires in a year or three from making the big California paychecks......


    It's boring and not edited but I will work on getting better at it.

    Are those FAA Standard issue 50' trees?

    Re: 2003 Husky A-1B N349AM

    Tell me about it. Those things have grown a bit since I first flew in there 18 or so years ago. I have no idea why the guy who owns the place leaves them there. Maybe it is something to practice with for him. A long time ago I was told he had the strip in a different place and they used to take off UNDER those high power wires.....

    You may notice a paved strip that is run down that I passed enroute. A guy used to do all sorts of crazy crap there and the legend goes he got busted for doing illegal maintenance and running drugs out of there. The trees along the edge have not been cut back in over 20 years. Shame it sort of has fallen apart the way it has over time.

    I saw that, and wondered what it was like going in there with a cross wind. It looks like you have a lot of off-airport landing possibilities.

    Beautiful area. Much too nice for Bay Area people.

    That looked like 30 degrees of flap on take off. Normal, or showing off?

    Good eye! 30 is full and recommended for shortest takeoff. Full flaps, full power, stick aft just enough to keep the tail on the ground. As soon as it wants to fly adjust pitch and away you go. I wish it had more. Funny to say for a draggy airplane but it will not slow down like a Cessna with 40 flaps. You need to be on speed and configured at the right altitude before short final if your doing short landing work. Otherwise you just burn up runway because you are too high and land long or end up carrying too much speed and land long. Flying 101 stuff but itís true. It does slip well with no limitations but if you have to slip it it usually means you arenít on profile. Or, you are just having fun. Lol.

    Thatís a nice Husky and the way a lot of them came equipped. 2104 I see. Ours is 2249. 3 years newer but 2800 more hours. Lol. Hopefully he doesnít have any issues with the engine monitor. I think itís a boat anchor if it ever needs repair work.

    You will have fun playing with that. No limitations on the door or window open either so it should be easy to stay as cool as the other side of the pillow...

    I don't see the wet compass. Do you use a GPS? Nice panel!

    What is the round doo da to your left below the trim?

    What's a compass? Is that an app?

    Good catch, I'm gonna have to look for it next time. Might be up on the windshield.

    The round thingy looks like the actual trim wheel? I might not be picking up on what you're asking about.

    Yes, I see now it is the trim wheel. I was looking at the slider above that as the trim.

    Allright...


    Oh newly elected one...... Looking at those bare flap hinges on that Husky I have two words.

    Squash balls. (giggty). And not the kind McGov gets when he yells after sitting down early in the morning every day with his coffee to watch old races of Pee Wee...


    Cut a 3/4-1" slit and slide em over the bottom of the hinge. Will save that dome of yours from getting an Agash when you walk into it. Maybe even drill a small hole in the bottom for water to drain out. We put some on and they are all still there 30 hours later.

    Glad to see how many on here have appropriately aligned desires: The linkage between aviation and motorcycling is a proud tradition that Glenn Curtiss approved of so long ago.

    As a new member, glad to see itís still aligned. That airplane looks like a BLAST.

    We used pipe insulation on the trailing edge of the wing on the Luscome. We all had lost skin on that thing. Got a pitot cover too.

    No one has walked into that hangar for almost a whole year. I wish I took some before photos. It was like Halloween with dust and cobwebs everywhere!

    Rich guy who bought it new and let's it sit because he's too busy.

    My stepdad and I feel sorry for the plane and convince him to let us go clean it.

    He offers us use of the plane if we just get it in license again.

    Nothing beyond the cleaning has transpired because we're too darn busy.

    2003 Husky A-1B N349AM

    So I am trying to worm my way into flying this thing sometime. 2018 180 hp A-1C model. Has all the latest upgrades, which, unfortunately, I really like. However I could probably buy 3 of what we have and have enough to buy gas for a year or 5 for what I am guessing it is going for. Improved wing, improved gear, different prop, larger entry door, sliding front seat, different trim system, so aileron spades and different sliding window setup on the left side than the B model we have.

    I used to work for aircraft dealer that has it listed back in 02/03 so hopefully I will end up getting some stick time in it at some point. It also made me want to put 29" tires on ours even more....

    The door and seat make a huge difference on getting in. They have made quite a few improvements, most all in the right direction imo, in the past few years.

    It also made me realize I don't want 31's. They may only be a few pounds more but the 29's are plenty for a poser like me.
