    Just felt like it was loaded. A little tailwheel shimmy at my first fuel stop. I had tools and accessories loaded after the photo was taken but it was still withing CG and GW.

    I just read the entire thread. Wow, thanks for sharing it. When the time comes to purchase an engine for my Tailwind, I know how Iím going to pick it up and bring it home.
