Any other Cherokee owners here?  I am considering upgrading from the stock braided aluminum battery box cables to these Bogert Aviation copper cables.  They are not cheap and although he makes a good point about the mediocre aluminum cables I would like to hear some first hand feedback from anyone who has switched up.  His claim of doubling the cranking power seems just a little improbable to me.

I don't know how to post a video her on the Pilot Group, so I'll put it on my own page.

Excellent Phil. You've already done a lot at such a young age.

3, actually. At 17 I think I can probably say that I'm the most novice pilot here. I've since gone solo on the motoglider pictured, a couple of unpowered gliders and the grob Tutor (tiny machine, but at least it's powerful enough for cuban 8's!) Best part is, they've all been on RAF scholarships so it hasn't cost me a penny.

Phil...and that was how many years ago?

This was my first time at the controls. I was 14.
Nice one for setting up the group. There really is nothing else quite like being up there.
