He loved it, works great to pull plane backwards and can use it to push the plane also but u really have to think ahead. Hahahaaaa got all the cables rigged and set yesturday, not far from a flight test. Im guessing sometime this coming week
Well wouldnt let me write anything, had to log out and back in, and start a new reply. Anyways, Dad, Brother, Son and I installed the wings backon yesturday, and got about have the stuff hooked backup, we just about ready to final adjust the cables/rigging.
Im not 100% sure but i belive its a 94-96 block, has to b the block with a small hole ( think the timing hole) in the upper half of the mag end of case, same hole as on a 582 that usually has a yellowish color rubber plug in it. I belive that what Rick had told me, ive chatted with him about the 670 some as id like to have one in my next model 1 build #0048 if i dont decide on a yammy motor
Stol King, mayb a Highlander, or just stick with multiple earlie model Kitfox's. Hahaaaa the fold up wing is damm hard to beat, the Carbon cubs r super nice but to spendy, there is one for sale in Anchorage for $244,000 its a 2013 model SS
Well my tip plates r 2" larger all the way around than the tiprib, plus an extra 1" on back half of top and bottom, i do not like how the wing moves on my blackfox with the drooptip in bad weather or little to hard of a landing, i belive cause of the weight of it out there. And r u sayin that going from 7.6 to 8 lbs per sq ft of wing is bad? Seems that more wing presser is better, and i dont think ud knotice any difference of lift? Course im nowhere near a plane expert. Ive just never liked drooptips. Guess y its experimental, hahahahaaaa Jim id have to read it again, but mayb that was thier covering and the piper factory wing framework??
Kitfox model 1 fiberglass drooptips weigh 3.5lbs each. I peeled mine off and hung them on the wall. My aluminum plates i made to replace the drooptips weigh 1.5lbs each. Hahahaaaa I have some kitfox model 1 wood ribs on shelf i could weigh, and one set of bare wing spars i could weigh also if was of interest. Polyfiber says thier covering per wing on a J3 with paint done to thier spec is 21.5lbs
Light scuffing of the polytone paint, not thro to any silver but if u do still no big deal, sand enough to get a bite into original surface, and goto it. Oratex would also work good for emergency fabric repair kit to carry in ur plane, u could stick it down with a hot rock out of a campfire, i think. But u cant let the glue freeze in winter if u forget to remove it from ur survival pack in the plane, or 100 mile an hr tape works to. Hahahahahaaaa
Willja67, keep me posted if u would on ur project, i also am seriously thinking of doing the single seat super light kitfox model 1, ser#0048, mayb a yamaha or artic cat motor, newer model wings i have, and building my own modified extended supercub gear with the shocks simular to a superstol. Just for my little toy. Hahahahaaaa
