    STOL Wing Rib Dimensioned Drawings or CAD
    Gents- does anyone have detail dimensioned drawings or CAD for STOL wing ribs?  I am setting up my CNC to cut new rib tails and forms for new wing tips   
    Thanks!

    Georgeous plane.  Perhaps this was asked earlier but it appears you have very little dihedral.  Only curious, is this by design or your implementation in the build?

    Hey Mike
    Just to confirm, are these the Desser 27 10-8 tires?  (old posts and the links no longer work)
    What 8” wheels and brake setup would you guys recommend?
    For those folks running these tires, have they worn well?
    thanks!

    Lv2plyguitar- Did you do a fuselage stretch when you convert to the 912? How did you manage CG?

    Many thanks Bryce for the FaceTime walk around.  Several good ideas and agree a couple inches will make a big difference. 
     
    Definitely going to give this a try.  Will sit it back and low just enough that it doesn’t drag in the control rod.

    Bryce- I would welcome the chance to FaceTime with you and see what you suggest ! -  I am having trouble sending a private message via the forum w/ my contact info.  Look for a PM soon.

    Guys, many thanks for the responses!  Having read Post #32 of the link below, I am trying to understand what geometry this results in.  I'll give it a more thorough read and see if it becomes more clear.

    Push Those Pedals!
    Okay Guys.  I may be the tallest Avid owner/pilot at 6’ 5”.  Let’s just say things are tight, especially with feet/leg position.  I need your help on options to get more legroom!
    I see limited gains from changing the seat alone and adding domes in the Lexan above my head, I think I really need to look at pushing my rudder pedals forward with clean modifications.  
    My project Model C is planned for the 582.   The basic exhaust may limit firewall modifications....
    What have have you guys seen as options? Does anybody know anyone who has modified both firewall and airframe to push the pedals forward?
    Thanks in advance for any ideas!

    Triangle Side Windows
    Hey guys 
    I want to put similar side triangle windows on my Model C that is found on the Mark IVs .  I would appreciate a photo or two of what the installed window looks like close up. I understand my install may be different given mounting features.   
    Thanks in advance !

    Glad you found the debris before losing all your fuel flow.  Sharp plane!  Hey- what is the make/model of the circular VSI OAT Altitude instrument next to your Avionics switch?
