    Repair of flapperon hangers on a Kitfox
    Found an older Kitfox 2, had an accident on the ground and broke all flapperon hanger tabs.
    Looking for suggestions on making this repair.
    Thanks in advance.

    My DAR said to put mine inside the cockpit behind the pilot. (left side)  So it could be seen without opening the door.
    Just what I was told.  Don't know if he wrote it down anywhere.
    My 2 cents.

    Thanks for your answer.  I flew today with the vent closed. Had no problems and no fuel vented and sprayed out.  
    Would like to hear your thoughts about both tanks to a tee.
    Thanks Again

    Please explain "never leave the header tank vent open".  
    I just built a mk iv and trying to learn all i can about operations.
    I ran both tanks to a tee and then to the header tank.
    Then I ran a vent line up and out of the aircraft.
    Thanks in advance.

    Marshawk,
    What degree pitch are you set ?.  What is degree of your prop hub ?
    What rpm's static are you turning and takeoff and cruise rpm's.
    My reason for asking I'm tweaking my MK IV and looking for starting points.
    I also have the 3 blade 72 in taper tip prop from Warp Drive.
    What is empty weight of your aircraft?
    Thanks in Advance.

    When I figure out how to post the pics , will do. until then if interested call or pm me and I will send pics to you.Not out of phase 1 yet.
    To change back to tail dragger, just remove grove gear, install original main gear and bolt on tailwheel. remove nose gear.
    The trailer is a converted boat trailer. load aircraft tail forward, secure it and drive off.
    the phone is from Atlanta area, but I now reside in Ocala, Fl
    useful load 539
    engine has 19 hours.
