    I have been fallowing your progress since you got this plane, you have made great progress and its looking good.   I see you got the new hoses installed, did you keep all the hose information, size and length?  As far as the muffler mounting brackets. They also look great.  Regards Joe

    Hello all
    i have the second chantz mounted in my avid. The way I see it in my location with the mountains we need to navigate over, thru around, I would rather have the opportunity to pull that T handle and ride her out to the bottom when the prop quits turning or the airframe has some sort of failure.
    if you would like some photos of the mounting and cable connection area I can get them tomorrow.
    regards Joe

    Right seat toe brakes
    Hello
    so I have the master cylinders already but will need the mechanical toe levers, so what do you think can a guy fab up these parts? It doesn't look to complicated.
    and question for you that have installed these, was there any issues with teeing into the system?
    regards Joe

    Just some thoughts from up north.  Maybe plan on going for an adventure this weekend and see is this dude will take you up for a few laps around the field, you may just get into this bird and say this plane is not for me.
     As far as your training time,  I think I had 4 hours in the log book when I purchased my first aircraft, best decision I made in regards to flight training.
    regards Joe

    Parachute deployment panel
    Question for anyone that has the second chantz or BRS aircraft parachute system. I would like to know what type of coverings you have at the area where the chute departs the aircraft?  This one has a hole cut into the turtle deck with some unpainted lite fabric covering the hole that needs replacing.   Regards Joe

    So the test fitting is good,  it should be something like this when finished.  I had this section of 5 in ducting rat holed away, when I started it was at 5ft and I ended up with about 50 inches long and 3.4 lb. I'm going to do some searches to see if I can get something a bit less in weight with the end caps on.  Regards Joe

    Thanks for the replies    I just remembered I have a section of 4 inch ducting tin   I should cut it to the length needed and try some test fitting and go from that.   Regards Joe
