As a self confessed Redneck pilot, lets see...

 

No stall warning, but I did want to fit a dixie air horn anyway,

 

Who would taxi around drinking when you could take off? 114_ban_me_please.gif.0d7635a5d304fa7bdaef6367a02d1a75.gif (no, I haven't)

 

Who bothers with CG? The mud will be right, its evenly spread

 

Meant to put a gun rack in, a bit ilegal, but....I just don't want forced landing at a major airport with a .222 in the back.

 

Bumper stickers are still to be fitted, so far I'm planning a few RM horns and Ned Kelly silouettes on the tail fin.

 

If an ADF could pick up coutry stations, I'd get one. As it is pre-flight includes make sure stack of country CDs are within reach.

 

I have chased sheep and cows off the strip, but this is a major strip (Frog's Hollow)

 

How about including: You have tried fitting a bull-bar, aerials, lights, exhaust system, etc.

 

I thought about gettign a drifter/bantam type and really BnSing it up. Barb wire stickers wrapped around the prop (wait, I'll do that to the Cheetah) bull bar, with 100w spotties, and imagine flying it at night with lights INSIDE the fabric wings/body....really cool.

 

And open cabin...to throw the empties overboard, see whos place you can hit:loopy:....

 

And to think you're sharing the sky with me......114_ban_me_please.gif.0d7635a5d304fa7bdaef6367a02d1a75.gif

Wild pigs aren't much good eating, a haunch of venison or kangaroo should be bled and gets hung underneath.

 

Tow bar? I dunno, with utes its so we can help all those rich blokes in their useless Porsches who get bogged.

 

Somehow I can't see a drifter pulling a Cirrus out of a ditch........032_juggle.gif.8567b0317161503e804f8a74227fc1dc.gif
