  1. This is my first post. I am at the beginning of a build and just mounted the wings on the fuse. I've got kitfox wings with the old spar where you don't have to insert the I-Beam. I understand that scuffing the spar with 220 grit is acceptable according to the manual. However, underneath the strut brace, the spar was prepped with something closer to 80 grit. Since the strut brace is riveted and hysoled to the spar, this is like a "doubler" or reinforcement. Of course, I am not sure.
    I believe I have to start over which sucks greatly, but was wanting some concurrence.
    Pictures show the scratches-(no other parts of the spar are scratched as such).
    Thanks and look forward to your responses and expertise-

  2. Anyone what model the speedwing and aerobat wing were introduced.  The history that I found here doesn't mention them until model C.  I have a possible B model that appears to have an aerobat wing, it is 23'8" long and undercambered, but it has 18" ribs on it.
  3. To all the Kitfox owners out there, wonder if you could help me or do you know?
    I have an Avid Speedwing Mk 4, the 13 gallon right wing tank (as from the cockpit) has rotted due to ethanol. I see that Kitfox sell ethanol resistant tanks, will a Kitfox tank fit an Avid and if so which model Kitfox?

  4. Anyone out there help me out? I have an Avid Speedwing Mk4 UK based. The fuel tank has rotted due to ethanol. I have removed the tank.
    Few questions,
    Does anyone have a spare tank I could buy for shipment to UK, its 13 gallon right wing (looking out when in cockpit). I could pay by Paypal if needed
    Will a Kitfox tank fit an Avid Wing, if so which Kitfox model tank? I see Kitfox have ethanol resistant tanks
    Has anyone made an aluminium tank?
    Many thanks Simon   G-BUIR
