    Something like this would also work https://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-Whelen-Wig-Wag-Model-SSF2150/192331125339?hash=item2cc7d4125b:g:rsEAAOSwlY1ZHJWf
    Also there is all kinds of these for vehicle head lights, and a head light is normally 50 watts should be more than enough

    Very nice airplane. I only see one problem it looks to me like in order to get yourself a airplane you need to give your wife a paver side walk and driveway, now that's a lot of work.

    I also played around with that idea on my model 1 but didn't care for the shock having to lean that far forward and with out moving the gear forward.  That lead me to the idea that the shock would bind like crazy and thats how you twist things up. If you can get it figured out please share with all of us. Really nice work so far.

     I got mine through Kitfox but did have to pay dearly for them. Well over a thousand bucks by the time they arrived.  I wish you could buy directly from the maker I hate nothing more than a middle man thinking they deserve a huge cut for doing next to nothing.

    Are you retiring 279AF and making this your primary airplane? Are you planning on a gear swap as well? Im just being nosey. Good luck with the 912 I think you will like it way better.

    If your gonna spend the money kitfox wants for the spring gear that should have a ton of custom work done to be considered bush worthy, Maybe you should be looking at grove spring gear, there is a tone of them flying off airport with great success. Something to think about.

    I bought a Kitfox 1 from Jim a few years ago, I don't regret doing business with him, Great guy to have on your side. I had a 503 on my challenger but if I was buying another plane with a 2 cycle I would definitely go with the 582.
