Doug Johnson:
Just recieved a current photo from John A. first time I noticed the H-295 cowling and landing lts. I see a slight paint scheme change on the tail.

Doug's post reminded me.... the H295 air intake system is approved as an "optional induction system, 295-064-900" for the H395 by the Helio Aircraft Specifications 1A8. Item #110. No 337 necessary.

looks like the forward visibility on 35s is horrible    dont see the purpose with such a heavy tail, need  a larger option for the tail wheel        i have visibility problems with 35s on my cub and long gear    looks cool though  better than 850s for sure

Doug Johnson:
What about the one we talked about on c/n 1250

"it was modified by burl rogers the same guy who builds the AOSS cub suspension    it uses his polymer bushings same as AOSS  he modified the a frame slightly and did a field approval on it.  in short it is a modified to use a polymer bushing shock instead of a gas filled type helio used,  the angle of the tail wheel was matched to work on 31" bushwheels so there would be no shimmey. Is it better???"
