Open Cockpit for those with Glasses

What do you guys do about this? I wear prescription glasses and have yet to find a great option. Goggles don't seem to fit around the glasses well. I got one of these: https://www.ebay.com/itm/aviation-helmet-with-headset-pilot-helmets-YUENY-EN966-certificate-YAHH-2000-PNR/272405394264?hash=item3f6c...

How many Piets have Dual Controls? What about cabane struts?

Getting a second Piet this Thanksgiving. It only has rear controls and bracing wires instead of cabane struts. Is this very unusual? Im sure less than desirable?

Re: epoxy failure

Yes I have had epoxy fail on my wood minimax. Hard landings, stepping on the wrong spot like you did etc. Im not a big fan of the wood/epoxy. I like metal fasteners myself. But then Im pretty rough with my planes doing stol flying. I really wish I had the steel frame instead. Oh well.

Lycoming O-290G

Hey all,
I have a O-290 for sale. Makes for one crazy pietenpol. I have the same engine on my Piet as well. Here is my craigs post:

Re: Any Piet Flyers in WA state?

These are 21x8.00x6 tires. They really roll over rough ground and sticks nicely.
The decals said Ulrika Trans Global. They are removed though. Wasn't a big fan of that.

I would love some big spoked old fashioned tires. One day...
