  • Just looked at the weight on the stab plywood skin. That is getting it done, don't have to look fancy. I am wondering about that pink hammer :)
    I have a question. I will be recovering the SSSC wings. Where can I get the best price on the 1.7 ounce fabric. Going to use that weight fabric again and use latex paint on the wings.

    Believe it are not very few discrepancy's once weight was removed. Leading edge gave the biggest headache. Have no Idea about light fabric other the ASAS and Wicks. The fist pass I went clamps only for about 10 min. then knew I had to change things up.:pilot:
    I bought all the 2 mm needed so once the tail group is covered and one last fitting check I'll pull the root spars out and remove the instrument panel and lay the Fus. on it's side and start covering at dash to seat back bulkhead (spar to spar) then front spar to firewall. 1.5 mm ply will be last to glue on and is yet to be bought. It covers turtle deck and seat back aft. Thanks Pops
    The stab is coming right along and looking good. When are you going to start putting the plywood on the fuselages sides ?
    Don, I suggest you keep the differential throws of the ailerons as they are. My flying Taylor and the two project sitting all have an extreme amount of up deflection and only about an inch or so of down aileron. That still requires a little rudder when rolling quickly. Any less differential effect and I think you'll run out of rudder trying to deal with gusts in a crosswind on touchdown.
