    No fuselage stretch.  The firewall forward weight with mounts and everything was about the same as the original 582 setup.  The CG is perfect.  I can pickup a 912 by myself.  Very light engine.  The 582 setup had a lot of steel for the mark Iv mount.

    Mountain Graphics / Cowling
    Tried to break up the orange monotony with some mountain graphics.  The cowling is finished to accommodate the longer 912.  Not the best job but I'm flying.

    Jack thanks for the reply.  The tank is not leaking for sure.  Syringe is a possible method.

    Fabric Repair
    All the fabric covering the under camber part of the fuel tank is sagging.  Any suggestion how to get glue in their without cutting and patching.
    Thanks

    Absolutely.  Shipping would probably be 100 bucks from Alaska. My plane is a model C.  They can use mine as a jig.  You should cut your own slots for flaperon and drill the holes for attach points.

    Just take the wings and engine off.  Sell it to one person in three parts.  Problem solved.

    Mission Accomplished.  Kitfox wanted $440.00 that included shipping.  CAC wanted 385.00 local.  Got it done locally by image plastics for $175.00.

    A bill of sale that includes language releasing her from any and all liability is sufficient.

    We can use my plane as a guinea pig.  When do you want to start?  Leni can you post pictures of your coyote rigging

  14. lv2plyguitar added a post in a topic flaperon troubles   

    I would love to see pictures of a design where 2/3 of flaperon works as flap so it could be pulled down 30 degrees or more and the leftover 1/3 work as aileron.  I think it would greatly improve landing capabilities.  Might lose some aileron authority but with rudder would be okay.

     Here is another crash with a PA 28 involved.  Wing apparently fell off.

    If you have the sling seat attach the back bottom of seat as far back as you can (if you haven't already).  A couple of inches can make a difference.

    Update....I saw on a previous post that a Kitfox 4 lexan turtle deck can be trimmed to fit the Avid Mark 4 / Model C.  Can anyone clarify that's the case?

    Sounds like when he pulls flap in air he may be exceeding max but one flap is entering reverse control phase earlier than the other if that makes any sense.  Flap handle stop will save your life.

    Thanks for all the advice.  I measured the axles and they are 3/4 exactly.  I think pounding out the old ones created the problem and Hysol per Tjay may be the solution.

     A bird like that would open up Alaska to all kinds of possibilities.  Helicopter plane combo.  When they get around 15,000 Ill order one.  LOL.  Never happen.
