    What did you do on your airplane project today?

    Completed sanding the pinked edges of the under side of one wing. The wing team is going great guns! Swing by 2J0 and visit.

    What did you do on your airplane project today?

    One micro project completed: Put last 3 fasteners and washer stacks on frame repair. It was dissassembled for inspection, then not finished off. I think he ran out of nuts, etc.

    Thank you for the excellent intro - can't wait for the PIREP! I am interested in how that nose wheel attach works, as I'm not a fan of attaching to the motor mount. Percy in NW FL, USA

    Omac the Newbe

    Welcome aboard, Omac. There used to be a "Trike" operator at 2J0. He used it to build a book on saltworks of the Confederacy here in NW FL, USA. I'm sure more will chime in with better advise!

    Repairs to wing fabric?

    I'd sure watch the repairs for any coming loose if it was me. Mr. Steve Whitman managed to miss it once... :-( Perhaps Stewart has confidence in their goop.

    Repairs to wing fabric?

    What kind of goop was hanging around that Estate? All the systems are about the same, but must be followed so the goops play well together. If you cannot reliably determine the system, remove all the cover from the wing and do it all in what ever system strikes your fancy. Again, the problem...

    N numbered Ultralight??

    Guess it is my turn as the first one to log on today -- Eastern Time Zone, and all that. Q1: You can "N" number anything. It is called "Experimental - Amateur Built." So long as you jump through the propper hoops. See the FAA regs if in USA. Q2: Would you be flying it between now and...

    LMA Build in the UK, to SSDR spec.

    Ercoupe wings started out fabric covered. It was designed in the late 1930's, after all. Just got the second recovering job back at the hangar. Later wings were "metalized" at the factory, but field upgrading was available. They used the same Warren truss style, with the forward spar taking...

    LMA Build in the UK, to SSDR spec.

    "For some reason that I can't figure out the 'designer' of the LMA decided that the Leading Edge/D-Box dosen't run from the capstrips off the top and bottom of the mainspar..." Neither did Fred Weick, designer of my Ercoupe. Off hand I'd say that it got most the tortional stiffness from the...

    Are these "Polars" as in measuring by bearing and distance? As opposed to Cartesian, which are X and Y orthogonal.
