Mark,  what a great birthday gift.  Those pesky Cadets have been part of my life for 54 years.  Now I can look forward to having a new one for the next 50 years or so.  If I order one with the turbine can I get tip tanks, trappable of course!  I might need a little more duration to complete my missions. ;)   Tim

I have sold the prop.  What engine are you running in case I find another Beech-Roby?   Tim

My first Cadet had the stock castering tailwheel and the oridginal brakes.  At the time ( early '70s ) I had flown 13 different types of tailwheel equipt aircraft.  Mostly antique or homebuilt with no problems.  Imagine the bruising my ego endured when I ground loop the Cadet 3 times in 2 days!!  The brakes had been set up with little clearance in order to increase braking.  They would get hot after a touch and go.  On the next landing they would grab and around we would go.  My flying buddies all found this very amusing.  I suggest Cleaveland brakes and a steerable tailwheel as good practical insurance  Tim

Hi Bill,   My daughters Cadet has a stc for the Aeromatic.  The prop was damaged prior to our purchase and and we have flown it over a 100 hours with a Sensenich.  I was a bit leary of the cut-off hub and have kept a close eye on it.  So far know problems.  Thanks for the imput.  Tim

Anyone currently using Beech Roby prop?   I have one in very good condition that I would like to trade for Aeromatic for Franklin powered Cadet.   Tim

Culver General Discussion / Land gear hanging down while flying
« on: August 31, 2012, 02:33:13 PM »
Hi evryone,   Mark Penner stopped by Wendesday to pick up my uncompleted Cadet project.  After loading it in his truck  I decided to check him out in my daughters Cadet purchased from Carl Baggett a couple years ago.   We jack-up the airplane and Mark cycle the gear a couple of time to get familiar with it.   I checked the gear doors while the wheels were up in the wells and they seem to be closed good and tight.  Took the plane off the jacks and sent Mark on his way.   It was obvious that Mark is an excellent pilot.   Mark flew around,  did a couple of touch and goes and landed.  A little later Mark again flew the Cadet in formation with me flying the model G Monocoupe, ( now know as the Culver Dart).  Mark had mentioned that he thought the right gear was hanging out a little.  I looked and it was not closed tight as it had been on the jacks.  I asked Mark to try rotating the wheel a little to get the last click.  He tried but the gear was still hanging out a little.   Do any of you have a fix for this?     Tim

I have a Sensenich 7258 on a Franklin 90 powered Cadet.   I would not recommend it as it is rather slow to accererate and the climb suffers.  I fly by myself most of the time so live with it.  After leveling off I cruise at 2500 rpm and 25 inches.  I consider this airplane heavy at 935lbs which dosn't help.   Tim

Modifications / Franklin engines
« on: February 23, 2012, 12:00:21 PM »
Both my Cadets have the Franklin 90hp in them.  I have a brand new in the crate Franklin 0-235 of 130 hp.  It appears that it would bolt in with out much modification.  Has anyone done this?   Any thoughts if the airframe can handle the extra power?  I believe that there would be no weight increase over the stock 90hp.     Tim

Modifications / Re: Wing Root Fairing
« on: February 08, 2012, 06:31:56 PM »
I restored my first Cadet in 1974, N 41722,  installed Mooney M-20 root fairing that fit perfectly.  I am in the process installing same on N-41726 along with stinger tailcone.  722  was very fast with 90 Franklin, stinger tailcone and lowered  (3'') wingshield.  I also had installed molded fiberglass doors.  Paint was Imron.  Propeller was a McCulley off of a C-150 using an adpter that was about 3 inch thick.  Tim
