    Piel Emeraude

    Hi DJ, The URL for the steel-tube fuselage CAP 10 is - Cap10 - CAP 10 For Sale Like you I have always admired the Emeraude. Never have flown one but always been a fan of the looks. Back in the 70's I built a set of wings for a Pitts S1, and assisted on a few other restorations (Tiger Moth...

    Piel Emeraude

    DJ, No, not too worried about the crash survivability aspect in this case. On cross-country flights over NZ, especially in the South Island, there are lots of lovely mountains to see (and avoid). The North Island also boasts a few mountains and lots of medium height, steep hilly ranges. With...

    Piel Emeraude

    TFF, - Agreed. That's about all I anticipated, although it would be nice to have a bit more strength to play with if you screww up a manoevre. Joe, - Duly noted.So do the Beryl, Saphir or CAP 10 have the fuselage attachments beefed up in this area? It seems that the wings are pretty much the...

    Piel Emeraude

    I have another query for all of you Emeraude experts. Various texts I have read have stated that the Super emeraude is aerobatic. My question is HOW aerobatic? Simple loops, rolls, barrel rolls? - or anything more advanced? Thanks Barry

    Piel Emeraude

    Thanks for that TFF. I agree the 0-290 is not that common - the 0-320 would be first choice. Thanks also Joe. Your pics are very interesting, a lot of work there. PS - I would naturally hate to fly a Cessna any day. Cheers Barry

    Piel Emeraude

    Does anybody know if the Piel Emeraude (or Super Emeraude) has been flown with the Lycoming 0-320 150hp engine? Most of the ones I have looked at on the internet have either 90 or 100hp. Thanks Barry

    Hi - from New Zealand

    Thanks for that Seb, Yes they are. I must have missed that when I had a quick look earlier. I wonder where plans for the wings are? Thanks again for your help, Cheers Barry

    Hi - from New Zealand

    Thank you Joe, What I'm trying to achieve is a real Cap 10, not a souped-up Emeraude. Though I have always admired the lines of the Emeraude I want something I can throw around a bit. After having researched the issues the factory-built CAP 10's have had with wooden spar cap problems...

    Hi - from New Zealand

    Thanks Dana, Yes I am aware that the CAP 10 is/was a type certificated and factory built aircraft. But there is at least one example flying in the USA (registration number 'N15MR') that was totally homebuilt in the Experimental category. The builder substituted a welded steel fuselage for the...

    Hi - from New Zealand

    Hi - Nice to be here. My first question is - "Does anyone know if there are any plans available to make a homebuilt CAP 10 (Mudry CAP 10)?" Cheers B
