    I figured it out, whatever Kitfox used to cut the metal tubes left a small burr on the inside of it. I smoothed it out with a round file and now the nylon tube can be tapped right in.

    I came a crossed this old ad well searching and realized that I own these kits now. I didn't buy them from Doug, I must have bought them from the guy he sold them to. Anyway I thought it was kinda neat, I am building the III now and intend to collect enough parts to finish up the model !V at a later date.

    That’s what I was doing too, it worked on my rudder and elevator hinges. I just cut them long to start and then pushed the bevel through and trimmed it off but not having much luck with the cable guides.

    Rudder cable guide material
    Has anyone figured out a clever way to install the rudder guide material? Maybe i'm just tired tonight but I seem to be losing this fight, must be time to call it a day and crack a cold one.

    ya when it comes to kids you have to take what you get, They may not always be interested in what we are but if you try hard enough there is always some common ground to be found

    Hi John
    I would love to talk to you about the Jabiru, especially if you have experience with the early Hydrolic lifter engines. I am dealing on one and it seams like a pretty good deal but with all the bad publicity I just want to do my home work.

    Spider man is my goofy 8 year old son. Which is another great thing about these planes, you can build them at home in your garage and still be part of your family. I’m partners with my nephew on a Zenair 601, everything you do to it has to be done at the hanger.

    I am just trying to sift through all the internet info and make a informed decision. I have rotax engines and like them most of the time, when my wallet isn’t stinging. But I would really like to try a Jabiru. Just can’t afford to get stuck with a boat anchor.

    Jabiru serial number reference
    Can anyone steer me in the right direction, I am looking at buying a Jabiru 2200 for my Kitfox III. I know I read somewhere the changes by serial number range. My searches are not coming up with it today. The serial number is 22A 2071 model number 2200A. Thoughts and comments are welcome I’m sure there are some members on here that can enlighten me.

    Hello from Alberta Canada
    Hi everyone, I have been doing a lot of reading on this site and really enjoyed it. Thought it might be time to introduce myself. I’m Kent , I bought a Kit Fox III Kit and a IV from a fellow in Ontario a little over a year ago. I hauled it home built a garage and am just getting started on the build.
