    I have the Matco 8" wide tire with a 45 release on my kitfox and it is difficult to release the tailwheel. Most likely switching to the 25 soon.

    I called on this and the wings are 18" oc ribs.  From inboard rib to tip is 16' 8".  Its not a HH wing in my opinion.

    Latest project
    Test flying another Back Country Super Cub that I helped to complete.  They are great airplanes but really the Avid is more fun to fly.  This one is headed to Idaho after I get the hours flown off.  Maybe I will get to deliver it via all of the Bc strips, yah right! Did I mention it has an Auto Pilot? Oh well to each there own. G3x and G5 backup for the panel.

    All controls nice and Free now!  I did drill out first elevator control rod bushing to 5/8" which allowed a nice smooth glide through the rest of the bushings.  It seems the first bracket might be welded at an opposing angle to the way the rod goes and this caused it to bind more in that bushing.  Not sure but works much better now.
    Found this friendly feller watching over my garage for me this weekend!

    I used the 25 degree wings, which matches the rudder rigging on an Avid. 45 will have difficulty releasing otherwise.

    Is there a way to make them not release? I have the 45 and they seem to release quite easily.

    I use the 25 and suggest that.  45 was almost impossible to get to release.

  22. SuberAvid added a post in a topic Progress on the extended wings   

    That's the next project Willis.  The extended wings added 10 lbs total.  Not bad considering the added strengthening, length and leading edge skins.  I think the rotax should cut around 60 lbs. and add at least 15 hp with the zipper kit. Stage two coming up next.  Hope to squeeze it in before hunting season but at least it is flyable even if I decide to swap engines after hunting season.

    The Catalina is no beauty queen......but this one is infamous with the modified/thicker fuselage sponsons. I wonder why someone would do this......
    I really like the canopy though...
    any ideas???

    I've seen several barns burn down when the hay self-combusted.  Donno if it was damp, wet, or too green.  We never stored hay in the barn.  EDMO
