    Hi Jim, I haven't flown it since april, its been a crazy year with wild fires and work so I am trying to  remember the rpm numbers, The pitch is right around 12 degrees, i'm not sure what you mean by the prop hub degree, the hub is 1 degree down from level flight line if thats what you mean,static was 9000 rpm and think I was cruising at 6500 rpm, Empty weight for the fat avid was 755 lb ,  I havent flown it since we re-jetted the carbs so not sure if the numbers will change much, it was running lean.., Cheers

    Hi Jared, im using the 3 blade 72" warp drive, the same prop that was on my soob and it seems fine, I don't have anything else to compare it to though so once I hear more on these Luga props  i'll  see if its worth the upgrade

    I have the 147.5 main jets in my set up with the air box, I am at 3000 ft alt.here and that seems to be the happy place. I think it all depends on the design of the box as to what you will need, if we get some snow and cold temps I will be hopefully getting in some more testing soon.

    Randy, thats interesting to hear your soob mount was angle down 6 degrees , I had the same problem with mind ,same guy must of built them. It caused alot of head scatching trying to get it to fly level,good luck with the new projects

    Hmmm sound like a legend in your own mind, I also dealt with Teal and he was a very helpful straight shooting guy and have had no issues with his adapter or c drive, time will tell I guess. I think your post will drive away more business than it creates unfortunately ,not my way of doing business

  14. marshawk added a post in a topic Just joined the Fat Avid Club   

    Hey Chris ,the Avid is looking good, I ended up adding the 18" extensions to the wing, I did have some binding in the flaperons on my avid + but it was due to crud and water that got into the flaperon pivot area, once we clean them up and got them moving freely I didn't  have any problems in flight. I only got 3 hours on it though in the spring and probably wont get any more testing on it till later this fall.

  15. marshawk added a post in a topic YAMAHA Genesis (RX-1) install in Kitfox 5   

    There is probably a few different ways to build the motor mount ,we ended up bringing the tail up to level the plane and had a bench on wheels the exact high we needed to sit the RX1 on. When we had all the right angle and measurements from the firewall we installed the larger  main  mount to the motor and then tacked on each of the smaller pieces from the firewall to the main mount, There wasn't much room left from the back of the RX1 to the firewall on my avid but your kitfox may have more room depending on your cowling,
    Good luck on it

    Avid wing tank repair
     Does someone know what is used in the avid tanks to bond the baffles to the inside of the  tank, it looks like a white or yellow epoxy maybe. I had a tank gas cap stop venting and the tank expanded enough to seperate the inner baffles off the tank,

  20. marshawk added a post in a topic Gas tank leaking   

    Does anyone happen to know  what was used on the inside of the wing tanks to seal the fiber glass  baffles in place,it looks like a white or cream color epoxy or something similar.My Gas cap stop venting and my wing tank balloon out from being in the sun and seperated the baffles off the bottom of the tank. I cut some openings in the bottom of the tanks and found alot of chunks of the goop on the inside of the tanks.
