    Hi Avid Randy,
    I have a set of mains for a nose wheel config. Let me know if you are still looking.

    Since the tank replaces several ribs and I think a drag tube, which would indicate to me that the tank is providing mechanical strength to the wing assembly. That would seem to indicate Hysol. Am I missing something? 
    I thought scratching the spar with sand paper was bad since it helps for a stress riser in the spar.

    Removing Hysol
    I have an Avid MK IV that had the old tanks removed (mostly) and I need to put the new tanks in. I want to use a heat gun to remove the hysol that is still stuck to the spars. What is the appropriate temperature to use? I want to soften the Hysol but the ruin the temper of the spars.
    Best,
    Rick

    Surprised you're having problems. I had an A6 I used in my cub (no electrical system) and flew across the country with it. I would recharge it at night and be good for the day.

    Hi Randy,
    Do the cuffs improve the performance? If so in what direction better cruise speed or lower stall speed?

    Hi John,
    How are you doing? Does the above message mean you are no longer interested in my main gear? Let me know.

    I sold my nose gear to John. He was talking about buying the main gear as well but I have not heard back about that. I did pass Johns email address to Christian.

    Rotec
    Has anyone flown a kitfox or an avid with a rotec 2800 radial? Seems like a lot of weight up front. I look forward to hearing.
