    Plywood ply direction question

    My plans call for the box spars to have 45 degree plywood either side of the caps, what would be the result of using 90 degree plywood instead? It is half the cost of 45 degree, ( asking for a friend...)

    The AFB (Amazing FleaBike)

    What do you suggest the for the rear wing angle for a tricycle flea ?

    The AFB (Amazing FleaBike)

    A staple here and there stops my Flea parts from slipping during the glueing process, use a sacrificial strip of cheap plywood to make it easy getting them out again without marking the ply. Standard Flea assembly process.

    EAA Sport Aviation vs. LAA Light Aviation (October 2020)

    I get the EAA magazine but there are usually just a couple of articles of interest to me , the rest are high dollar restorations or multi hundred thousand dollar super duper aircraft. I would cancel my EAA membership but might need their muscle one day.
