    Ive always carried a small tool bag. Keeping in mind all the tools in the world wonít help without having parts to fix it. I tried to think about what I could actually fix in the field without parts or with what parts I carry with me. Be nice to see your list Iím sure thereís things I didnít think of. 🛠

    I think you should start by making a list of the things you think may go wrong and that list probably depends on where you plan to be landing your FX-3. Then eliminate from the list all the things that you can't fix no matter what tools or spares you carry.

    In my PA28, which is quite long in the tooth, the most used tool was a starter Bendix "tickler" (A specially bent wire that engaged a tooth of the starter Bendix and allowed it to be "wiggled". If that didn't work the same tool could be used to bring the Bendix into full engagement). Only ever used it on one long trip but having it was a lot better that being stranded with a Bendix that refused to engage.

    I don't carry that tool in my FX-3 because I don't think the Bendix is likely to be a problem.

    Isn't a standard Super Cub repair kit a couple of rolls of duct tape, safety wire, and safety wire pliers?
