    The Bush gear will also destroy the side of your plane if you don't do the reinforcements.  There was a guy with a Yellow Kitfox one that built his bush gear and did a  thread on it getting bent up. Maybe some one out there knows his name.

    If your planning on running the mains that low I hope your installing a fuel pump because you wont have any head pressure.

    They must be figuring strong because my much heavier duty  1550 gear is only 35lbs.

    I think if you are building the ribs you could incorporate the old style flaperon bracket into the new style kitfox 4 wing rib.

    That looks good to my morning eyes.  But when you do your final assembly I think you put some Hysol in there and clamp it down. That's what I did if I remember right. Also heard of some using Black electrical tape.

    If that Bridge started doing that while I was in a car the last thing I would do is stop and park the car. I would be off it so damn fast.

    I got a Luga on order but it might be a few months before I do any testing. You should find out what your performance is now. If I remember right My Mgl tells me from the start of my roll to clear a 50 foot obstacle is 423 feet That's with a wood 64/34 Tennessee Not sure how that compares to others but hope its better with the Luga Then again I am very green to STOL Flying.

    New Project
    Hey guys getting ready to start a new fun project.
    As some of you know my Wife and I bought 14 acres In Wisconsin years back and it is finally time to build a small vacation cabin. No flying for me for a few months but I believe  this will be a much better use of my time. Cant finish it this year cause December through July is booked solid but gonna try to get it livable so we can start enjoying it. There is Just something about Wisconsin that we love.
    This is the picture of the first load headed East. Gonna be fun.
