    Long term integrity of resorcinol glue

    Aero News Network Video - Terrible Raptor 1st Flight Review

    How about getting a review from somebody that is actually familiar with test flying aircraft. The climb rate was probably kept very shallow for a purpose. as far as the instability goes nobody really knows because nobody else was in the cockpit.

Also coming from experience, make sure you have a positive pressure air mask on when you're spraying it.

    More for n...sort of.. After flying last weekend it was discovered that my spinner had cracked. After removing the spinner for further investigation I found the backing plate cracking at the bend of the flange. It appears to have started at one of the nut plates. The crack was obviously...

    Engine options for my Lazair

    Aside from the part of the comment that you did not like he was talking good sense when it comes to getting a good reliable engine from a glider and installing that. I have been around ultralights and I remember the Lazair when I first came out. I believe it was a couple of two-stroke 8...
