Hopefully by now you have all seen the new Sport Aviation section Member Tested where we line up products for members to test out an review.
I would really value some input on products you would like to see tested in future editions of the magazine. Please post a reply here, send me a private message or an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with you ideas.

How about testing some light weight tie down systems? Summer is coming and more of us will be spending time away from home and needing to tie the plane down outside.

I would love to see some comparisons of hand held GPS's that are compatible
for cars and airplanes.
There are a lot of exclusively air or ground units, both built in or hand held.
Are there any that do both, and how well.

I 2nd the multi-purpose GPS idea. I have one and love it.
How about the following: Electronic Logbook Aviation flashlights, bluetooth cellphone to headset adapters, sunglasses! - definitely sunglasses. I've been looking for a pair is both comfortable and doesn't let the noise into my ANRs.

How about Mutt Muffs? I saw their booth last year at Airventure. They make sense, but do dogs really keep them on?

I'd be interested in anything having to do with sanding and dust control!

Surprisingly, if the parts are capable of standing it and if your sanding abrasive is good for it, water is a VERY good dust control device. But you HAVE to be sure that your parts are capable of being coated in water. Many, many composite structures are NOT. In that case I can suggest sanding in the open air. Inside if you have to, but dust control will be a major nuisance. The vacuum attachments to small sanders are a pain in the neck.

I add another vote to Mutt Muffs.

I'd like to see more reviews of iPhone/iPod Touch aviation Apps.

A review of kneeboards and lapdesks would be nice. I've recently transitioned from flying aircraft with yokes to an aircraft with a stick. Kneeboards and lapdesks that are great for a plane with a yoke are recipes for disaster with a stick. It would be nice to know what others have found that work well with a stick.
