I have to agree with JCG.  The Kolb is a very capable aircraft, proven many times over.

We don’t like to talk about it, but it is also a very crash worthy aircraft, one of my major concerns whe ...

I started out with 600 feet of cow pasture, rough as a cob, with poor
approach and departure, Ultrastar and Firestar without brakes. Never had a
problem with air strip length. Eventually, got 750 ...

This is what I used on my FS. Normal windshield with a faring. Worked
good. Could wear a base ball cap and my eye glasses without goggles.
Before, the wind hit me right in the face.

I’m sorry about that.  I have no other place to post the vid.  I may be doing something wrong, but it works for me and others.

Early this morning Larry Cottrell flew over to the ranch to check cows. He

If the plans and instructions are correct from Kolb Aircraft and the aircraft is built according to plans, it will fly.

I didn't make myself too clear, as usual. Of course check the angle of wing ...

Did you all know that no numbers are required, in most cases, if a Kolb is built to plans.

We checked CG on the Ultrastar by hanging the aircraft from the main spar carry through. If it was close ...

You are more than welcome.

We always overbuild, it adds weight, increases my confidence, makes me comfortable, and doesn't seem to have affected performance.  Still waiting for another MKIII to o ...

As I has said many times, the Kolb is the epitome of drag. Lift struts and
a 4 inch faring on the windshield did more than anything else on my FS.
After that, forget it. On the other hand fat tire ...

I think I was talking about a mph or two stall speed when I am already at 30-32 mph.

How accurate is my ASI indicator at those slow speeds?
