Finally got the annual done and took her up yesterday. Was nice to get back in the air after a long cold winter!

Ya I am going to have to use my camera instead of my phone cause looks like the phone doesn't take very good pics!

John,
Glad to see you have the Champ up and running. Our fly in (Strum 3WN9) is June 29th (last Sunday in June). Fly over if it works out.
Did you ever solve the tail wheel issue?
Mike

Yes I bought a new spring cause the old one had lost it's arch, but now it seems like it wants to turn right just fine but when turning left you have to have the rudder pedal all the way and it doesn't turn very sharp. I might have to tighten the left side spring. But I still think I am going to get an API wheel when needed.
