1) "Nose Slam"
I don't describe it as a nose slam, just a touch down of the nose wheel,
shortly after the main landing gear touch down, that I would like to avoid
if I choose to do so.
2) "OC perhaps removing approximately 20 # forward of the main gear would
help the "nose slam problem".
Perhaps, but one must take into account CG limitations. A CG location aft in
excess of the limitations could be dangerous.
3) ".!0 # under the Spinner could be demonstrated by temporarily using a
borrowed wood propeller."
My current prop is a laminated wood Prince prop.
4) "We should easily obtain a significant instrument panel weight
I am all for weight reduction and would like to eliminate my vacuum pump and
related hardware, but a new instrument panel does not quite fit into the
easily category in my estimation.
5) "........... are you sure you installed the main gear wedges in the right
Yep, moved the main landing gear forward.
