Well i tried to put a two short videos on with those pic but guess it not work, hahahhaaaaa should to figure that out. Mmmmmmmm Thanks Jim was an awesome day, and is cramped but to much fun so u forget all about that, then we took it for another short spin a few days later while Leni was still here playin in the dirt with me. Hahhaaa
Well friends my BlackFox #0021 flys again!! Thanks to Leni, many many many thanks!!! He took her for a loop aroumd the valley and then took me for a ride the first day, and im definetly hook now!!!! THANKS LENI!!!!
Well rain again some here so got to work on the 12 again. Got the tail feathers on yesturday hope to finish up the rest today and install the wings by this weekend. Not the best pic but still cool i say. Hahhaaaa
Well like ive mentioned b4. I havent done any covering work (just patchwork) with any aircraft fabric b4 i did the Oratex, but i tell u that oratex is AWESOME STUFF. Least far as i can comment on. Its so easy and fast a kid could do it. Hahahaaaa i have two more to cover for myself and i tell u thats what ill b useing on them. And not to mention i cut off a total of 10.7lbs off dads PA12 with the Oratex 6000, biggest thing to remember is when ur installing the oratex is u have to remember ur installing the final surface so u have to take care to do the best job u can and take ur time, and think ahead cause what u leave is what everyone will C when its done.
Well had a few heavy rainy days and then was so wet that couldnt do much work with the equipment, so i did some work on the plane and took it outside to c how she looks in the daylight. Now to just put everything back together and then get some air under her wings!!!!!
The BRS chute i had in my BlackFox was 21.4lbs. And was good for 1050lbs. Useless dead weight if ur into low and slow flight like me. I pulled mine and for fun set it off in the front yard. Wasnt that much fun tho. Hahahaaaa
Well got a few rainy days and dirt moving good around here at moment, so was able to get somemore done to the pa12, real close to being done so can put wings back on her. Just a few tail feathers to finish sewin/ finish tape. And my wife is redoing the front and back seats, Dad is healin up good so he is excited to get it in the air. We cant wait. Hahahaaaaa
