Well so far have done a quick fit, next ill put in the bushings and the bolts make sure it all fits b4 i send it off to the powdercoater. Tires on stock gear cleared the ground by and 1” where its jacked up to now. And to get same tires backon ill have to jack plane up 5” more.
A few more pic of this summers cut, down to bottom of pay and moving backwards across cut to the other side, ive hauled out a total of 148, 50yard loads so far. We had a serious rainstorm here for a week and now me and my son r pumpin water like mad men. Hahahhaaaaa by the way my son down in the hole is 6’1” at 17yrs old helps with reference of hole depth. Hahahaaaaaa
Yea i have cn those, they helpful like the rest ive cn but still not the best but will have to work, between the one video i mentioned (alex/ redfox) and the instructions. Im going to have to just go with it. But i like the idea of them going over the top of fuse between wings to help that air there also.
Got it made from a guy in TN. Randy Moore, (731) 589-1330 4” extended up at firewall, backin plates moved out to 67” wide, a great guy to deal with. I dont use the 3/4 stock axles is y there is a piece of pipe in the axel hole for his jig mountup, all my birds run 1 1/2” axels. Easier to play musical skis. Hahahahaaaa
Ok guys, i got my vortex gen in the mail, ordered them off ebay, so not very good instrutions so im doing some reasurch to c where to place them and the spacing. Anyone have an opinion, best ive come across is the utube video the Alex (redfox) and his sugjestion on placement, but that is on a KF5? Im installin on a KF1
Randy Moore could posible help u out there, he is one of the guys building gear for the Avid and Kitfox, ( he is just finishing mine for taildragger). He also builds tri gear for guys, and ill bet he has info u need on the trigear stuff. Give him a call, leave a message he will get back to u soon as can, he is a busy guy these days. Tell him bucky said to call him he will treat u good. Randy Moore 1 (713) 589-1330 he is in TN
Hey just thinking here hope someone will set it straight, But i think that Kitfox and Avid have different axel center locations from the front of the wing. Think Avid is straight down from wing leadin edge, and Kitfox is like 1 7/8” forward of wing leading edge? That will messup ur CG if it ends up different than what u have now. Mayb someone thats knows them better can help us out with that info.
Yep im one of u all also, got hooked on them, and was a way to ease a real airplane into my stable with the wife, hahahaaaa, i have 7-8 horizon hobbie foam supercubs, "thank god for that little gyro" hahahahaaaa, course a guy has to mod them up, big tires, ect but the twin props r the most fun, u can hang that cheap little bugger right vertical on the prop loads of fun,flying floats on the snow is sweet also
