I bought a flying garden shed

Congrats @Snoopy :)
Nice report as well :)


75-80 KTAS is a nice Super Cub cruise speed. A lot more AvGas might get you 95 KTAS, but in effect variable noise, constant thrust above 85 KTAS.

Congratulations on the new airplane!
On the glare shield I see an interesting number of attachments. What did the previous ower use them for? A permanently screwed down ram mount ball and then on top this clamp?

The screwed ram ball mount was already there, so was the screwed down plexiglass plate, to which I suction mounted a clamp to hold my phone 📱 with a nav app running.

The 80hp Rotax has compressions like new sigh of relief.

Anybody know a source for tyres that fit on these Beringer brakes?

No idea what size of shoes you’re shed is wearing, but guessing non-standard stuff have a look at Tost.
OTOH Beringer usually use tubeless tires… nothing at ACS?

We have Beringer brakes on the Super Guépard, although we have the brake lever mounted on the stick which I actually like.
I don’t think the tyres are any different to those we had before the brakes were fitted.
I can try to find out more at the weekend if it helps.


Nice. Beringer is pretty standard. You can get tires wherever they sell GA tires. It’s more about the actual dimension of the rim. ACS for instance. Does the ilevil work OK in practice?

The elephant is the circulation

Does the ilevil work OK in practice?
