    Could I do this aviation job?

    Please for the love of all things aviation holy, do yourself a favor and better educate yourself! Instead of googling this S&@t maybe go talk to some of us A&P's (in my case AME, Canadian equivalent), grease monkey? Do you even know what it takes to maintain todays fleet of aircraft? I have more...

    The progress continues. I needed to radius the wing tips to match the drawing and I didn't feel that cutting the tip shape with a jig saw then sanding it with the aluminum plate that's sandwiched in there would be much fun so I built a "radius bar" of sorts for my router. Worked great. Now I'm...

    Filler??

    That is exactly the plan. The original question was to just rid of a few valleys, and imperfections to prevent any sharp edges prior to the cover of fiberglass.

    Filler??

    I keep my basement at an average of 25-30% RH, I do my very best to keep it as low as possible until all surfaces are stained an sealed.

    Filler??

    Good day all, I am beginning to start some light filling on my wing to rid it of a few imperfections. I was planning on using west system, mixed with west systems 410 micro light. But I've read that it can be affected by elevated temperatures. I was planning on using this on my wing, and part of...

    Hey all! Hopefully everyone is safe from this craziness that is going. I'm on company mandated self isolation for 14 days, because I was vacationing in Maine for a week. Which is kind of neat in a way, I get 14 days paid off to work on my airplane! Benn taking advantage of it and work 8-10 hrs a...

    Oh absolutely! I don't have any pictures on my phone of the final product but will take some and post, the entire assembly installed without the hoses came in under 1 pound! Very pleased. If I can find a market for these I might sell them as Ive had 3 inquires for them. Thanks Mark

    Well the progress continues! Reached a pretty big milestone in the project! We have finally closed the wing completely after installing the final wing skin! I still have a long way to go, but it certainly feels pretty good to have completed such a big milestone! Today I will remove all the...

    Hey all, Haven't posted lately but have been doing a lot of stuff in the shop. I can't get over all the tiny little things I need to get done before closing up the last skin in the wing. But its getting a lot closer and provided my work doesn't keep from it, I should be closing it up by the end...

    Avionic Antenna and Carbon??

    A lot of what you all have mentioned has already been taken into consideration as well as some of it is even in the works. Almost all avionics are going to be installed on one "rack" and will be removed for racing applications. As for the leading edge install of the antenna that won't work for...

    Avionic Antenna and Carbon??

    Victor Bravo, I get it! BUT my wife would have my head on a pike if I had spent all this money and time to build an airplane that would only fly once a week. hahahaha.. I do plan on doing some sport flying. So need to lay out the equipment within the build, however lots of it will be removed...

    Good morning and happy Monday to all! I hope you all had a great weekend. Well we had a good weekend in the shop! We were able to get the aileron system “rough rigged”. Got some excess glue removed and cleaned up. And got the wing incident plates roughed out. Still need to finish them up then...

    Avionic Antenna and Carbon??

    Good day all, As some of you know I am building an aircraft with a 4130 chassis and a carbon skin fuselage. I'm stating to plan the avionics packages, and i'm wondering about antennas. I'm trying to eliminate anything that will cause any parasitic drag, ie. Antennas. So my question is can a 406...

    Well this weekend we hit a Major milestone! I haven't around or been posting much lately as we have been very busy in the shop, preparing for the first of 2 Transport Canada Mandated inspection imposed on amateur build aircraft here in Canada. On sunday we had the MD-RA out to the shop to...

    What did you do on your airplane project today?

    Spent the past few days in the shop, prepping for the MD-RA's arrival for my pre close up inspection. Just trying to tidy up a few loose ends. Rough rigging of the aileron system, to make sure I have proper clearances for bolt heads/nuts and wing flex. Unfortunately no real pictures of any value...
