  2. Glad you like it, there's nothing simpler in my opinion.
  3. It appears whatever you did worked. Where's Sally's raincoat?
  4. The quickest and easiest way to just resize pictures (not edit pictures) is to use "Image Resizer for Windows". This is a free program that integrates into the windows shell. Once installed you simply right click on ANY image and select "resize pictures" from the pop up shell menu and you are presented with a few size options. There's nothing to learn or programs to worry about. It is by far the simplest way to resize any image, bar none. It works with all windows versions. https://www.intowindows.com/resize-images-from-context-menu-in-windows-10/
  5. I recommend a “freeware” program called IrfanView that will allow image downsizing, cropping, rotating, ...., more. Useful and Easy to use. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IrfanView or, one can simply Import the High resolution pictures into individual MS PowerPoint slides, add multiple pictures in one image, ..., and then “Save As” JPEG Files to dramatically reduce stored picture size to Kb instead of Mb. And, just like a “free lunch”, lots of bits are NOT Free. Note that your friendly Admin pays a slightly larger monthly fee for SCFLIER website services to increase our total image storage Server space...there is no problem today, but as we add more and more participating members, (An AWESOME Thing), we will eventually “run low on space“ again, and we will need to upgrade the SCFLIER Website Server package (available with higher monthly fees) once again.

  6. What size are the images you are trying to post? I dont think there is a setting for you other than the server limits the max size you can upload. I always resize my images for faster uploads and not to take up a ton of space on the server.
  7. I'm finding that all of my pictures are too big to post. Do I have a settings problem? I only noticed the problem this week.

  11. Forum is an invaluable source of info and assistance, thanks for all you do.
  12. Many thanks for all that you do to keep this forum going, Dave! It truly is much appreciated! 🙂👍🏻
  13. In the background, your friendly SCFLIER ADMIN gets to update the website SW periodically. Typically, most Website Software updates are SECURITY Fixes. Some SW Updates fix bugs, and some provide improved functionality. In the last year, we have had seven SCFLIER Website SW Upgrades. An example is shown in the attached picture for your enjoyment. SCFLIER Website SW Improvements are transparent to the individual SCFLIER Member. Fun Fun for your friendly Admin Dave
  14. Really cool. My bucket list includes at some point getting to Page AZ for a week or so and checking out the desert SW. Probably not this year but maybe next. There are two mountain passes to get out of CO in that direction and the conditions would have to be ideal. Or it's a long trek into eastern NM and a southerly detour, which just means more flying time.

  16. Yep, that’s why I don’t want one 😀 Btw. Arion Lightning planes have nothing in common with Lancair planes except maybe it looks kind of similar ( but so does SportCruiser to some degree ) Arion Lightning legacy includes this plane - https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aerocomp_VM-1_Esqual
  17. Lancair’s have never been referred to as docile. It shows in the high accident rate.
  18. Lightning is much more docile plane than the Lancair - I think of it as “Lancair for dummies” , which is for me 🙂 - I don’t need all that ultra speed that comes with Lancair and don’t want to fly a plane with 80 knots landing speed.
  19. Why buy a lightning when you could get what it was designed from the Lancair. …. if you can fit into it. I'm 6'5 and cant get my knees under the panel but it a screamer at 200 + knots at 8-10 gallons per hour https://www.trade-a-plane.com/search?category_level1=Single+Engine+Piston&make=LANCAIR&model=320&listing_id=2375076&s-type=aircraft
  20. Get your 3rd class medical - to me that is a no-brainer. You can fly anything with it - SC , Lightning - whatever ... Personally, I was kind of looking at the new Lightning as my next plane ( either that or Sling 4 TSI - but I don't need 4 seats). With the Titan engine it will cruise faster but the main thing for me is 17XX lbs gross which is what I am having problems with on my Sting S4 - not enough gross. I am 6 feet 210 LBS , my wife is almost 6 feet and while she is pretty thin , at 6 feet she is still heavier than most women + BRS and we are maxed out with fuel. With 17XXX lbs , I can add a BRS installation to the Lightning ( Nick mentioned that they do offer it if you want it ) , load it with fuel and still have enough for decent size baggage.
  21. Here is where I'm at now. I have 2 friends telling me to get my 3rd class medical. One of my friends is a 20k hour corp pilot. Flies a sovereign jet. The other is a 60ish hour student who hit pause on training and now is back in the air. He will be a PPL in a month or two. The commercial guy has an AME that is great to work with so I'm good to go with the 3rd class. Now I've been looking at pipers too. But holy crap are the rebuilds expensive especially on the 540s. Things i love about the SC... 48 inch cabin. It looks very modern and well built. No built in PIO and half the insurance premiums. Cheap annuals. (Relative to other plane nothing is cheap in aviation) Things i love about the lightning... The lines the speed. Things i love about a piper... Back seats. Being in CT we have plenty of Wx until April so i have some time to analyze my choices.
  22. Designrs and ShawnM thanks for the preventative maintenance tips. To answer atrosa’s question no I did not previously fly a Lightning. I just love the Tampa Bay Lightning hockey team.
  23. So . . . what is your hourly rate for doing that?😃
