Hi guys and gals,small “workshop” evening post about bearings for those of you riding an AKBW Baby Bushwheel.DISCLAIMER: only for Europeans! Why? Because you lucky bastards North Americans can get these parts very easily directly from the manufacturer 😝… you’re welcome 😘Here we go:The bearings I had in my Tailwheel rim have seen better days and after 7 years of good duty, it was time to replace them.And now comes the funny part… for us Europeans… the bloody imperial system 🙄🙈Those bearings are: PRECISION SEALED BALL BEARING, 5/8″ ID X 1-3/8″ OD X 7/16″ THICKThe original ones can be found here:azusaparts.com/product/precision-sealed-ball-bearing-58-id-x-1-38-od-x-716-thick/Yes! They cost USD 2.25 a piece 😅🤙Now Azusa certainly don’t ship two bearings to Europe and it would just make no sense to do it anyway.After some research, I found an equivalent here:www.amazon.de/-/en/gp/aw/d/B0848FRFW7?ref=ppx_pt2_mob_b_prod_imageYes! It’s on Amazon and furthermore in German but hey, especially for that, who cares? I hope it will help some of you.I don’t have a plane anymore but at least an overhauled AKBW Baby Bushwheel 🤣CheersMaxime ... See MoreSee Less

Had a few scary minutes flying yesterday. The engine started to quit on me at cruise power. Luckily I was over head an airport so I landed. The engine was being starved of fuel at cruise power. The issue was a blocked fuel filter. Some how I picked up dirty auto gas somewhere. It looked like a clump of hair was in the filter. It was almost fur like. So I am removing the rubber hose that was protecting the glass filter so I can check on each pre flight. I am going to drain and inspect the tanks today. We checked the carb bowls and they were clean. I am also going to install an EMS system. Something with fuel pressure and flow. Any recommendations? ... See MoreSee Less

Savage and Shock Cubs are ultimate tools for backcountry or bush flying. They make runways optional for real, as a matter of fact runways are almost rejected by the fat tires most of these planes are sporting. 

This site is created with the purpose of promoting the use of Savage and Shock Cubs to what they were designed for – fantastic off airport experiences! Don’t be fooled – although this is virtual reality, this site is all about FACTUAL REALITY. It’s about what happens in the real world, experienced from one of Zlin Aviation’s magnificent aircrafts.

The site is maintained by Bush Flyers, dealers of Zlin Aviation Aircrafts in Denmark and Sweden, as well as the European dealers for Acme Aero Shocks
