Leni, i mayb able to helpout with some wing rib profiles to test/try/checkout, my buddy Brian (who is showin me the ropes of flying my Blackfox) is building the lastest KF sti/ak mods he calls it, ill bet i could get a patteren, also i have some (to expensive) experimental wing ribs for the PA12' that we havent started building yet, could make a patteren from them also. Ps i like the color choice, black and green match my plane, hahahahaaaaa
Wish Desser made it in a 27" tundra with a 6" wheel, (id have a set asap) but they say with a 6" wheel on thier 27" there is to much sidewall flex for a tire that light and that size. Which is too bad I think they wouldnt b able make enough for the demad they would have, (if they did make them) long as they where, light, reasonable priced, they may have to make them for 6 months straight b4 they start sell on the market just so they start ahead of the game. Hahahahaaaa. how about making a wheel adaptor like gar-aero made for 6" to 10" but for 6" to 8"?
Since on the discussion of 2stroke oil, ive been useing Lucas semi synthetic oil, $39.99 per gallon, have been having good results so far, and dont seem make a mess on bottom of plane, anyone have good or bad info on it? On my sleds ive always used Amzoil Interceptor, but it is hard to get here sometimes, and expensive, and i dont like mixing brands together if can help it
Ok got the mid fences build and one mounted on wing, not sure how they will work, guess they look cool at moment, hahaaaa opinions r welcome, I would like to hear others thoughts on the mid fences and wingtip fences.
Hahahaaa thats funny cause i have enough of those built to do both wings, just trying to decide if want to put them on. Ive copied all ur other idea's so far, and adding a few of my own. And y i installed an extra capstip about mid-wing, (building those pieces today from the cardboard patteren) least they will unbolt and can reinstall drooptips if that is decided is best.
Mmm i c that with comment on the motor to cowl and exhaust to cowl, even tho mine had the 503 Bbox to start with, my exhaust is different one, and the black shroud around top of motor is also different than i had. But still same cowlin as i have. Surprising how many different variations there is with them old girls.
I do agree, me and Dad built a hanger this passed summer for his PA12, 38' wing span. We did 8" I beams corner posts set 36" into concrete founation, 8" Ibeam on top of uprights, and roof on there, walls we will inclose this summer we hope, but We made the hanger 50'x 30'x14' ceiling
The cowl he is useing is the same as my bluefox im building now, i almost changed to the round cowl, so had checked the two different engine mounts, the motor ends up in same place with either mount far as I could tell, and wasnt anymore room on top of motor compaired to the round cowl on my blackfox, i did c in my paperwork there had been some kind of odd drive that didnt work/stay together in my engine log book, and it had less than 20hr on it, then was changed to a Bbox on the 503, then got wind damage at 55hr, now ive installed a 582/Cbox and my propdrive shaft is low also, (Leni had mentioned that was low to me) shouldnt have clearence isuse down there i didnt, and have a fat finger of clearence (i wear a size 11.5 wedding band) just had to adjust the exhaust exit towards the left side and rotate it backwards to line up with exit hole. ( its the exhaust i got from u Jim) Maybe cause of the heat muffler wrap, which i have done also, heck extra clearance is always good, right? Hahahaaaaa
