    Nice castle in France
    The "Chateau de Neuville", XVIth-XVIIth century, some 50km from Paris, as seen from my Avid on a bright February day.
    It is for rent for weddings or events, if you like it!

    This machine seems interesting: its a Speedwing shortwing with leading edge slats (to comply with the French ultralight requirement of a stall speed below 65km/h)
    Seems to be a C model with Mk IV cowling. (on the right in the picture)

    MATCO caliper P/N for MK IV?
    One of my calipers is leaking, I disassembled it and the leak is caused by corrosion in the O-ring contact area.
    This model of caliper seems to be obsolete, could someone point me to the replacement P/N?

    Just after WWI, Udet was very active in  soaring (which was at this time the only flight activity permitted to Germans).
    This could explain its exceptional ability in deadstick flight!

  11. Jeromef added a post in a topic MK IV Aerobat speedwing spar gouge/repair   

    Sure not: as the repair tube is inside the original spar, its section inertia will be lower.
    Moreover, the rivet holes will further weaken this area.

    Are the notches really useful?
    As a handle, you could use a golf ball drilled and bonded to the lever, the touch  is unmistakable!

    If you confirm hat the dent is less than 10% of the wall thickness, I   doubt the repair solution (from the Catalina spar extension) will be any stronger than the spar in its current state.

    As a structural engineer, I would say that the scratch is not in a high stress area of the spar (as it is essentally bears vertical flexion loads, the stresses are mostly at the top and bottom.)
    Personally, I would make a repair as you suggest. But its your butt in the seat, not mine!

    Strangely, the ad says 13.5gal fuel, but there are 2 tank caps?
