    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)

    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.

    Cable pulley tensioner/mount

    It is still too early to tell, I have not started the wing assembly, all the ribs are made but not the box spars. I was planning to use my 447 Rotax but if things get a bit weighty I have a KFM 107 from a motorglider that I might use. That is about half the weight of the Rotax bur I will need to...

    Cable pulley tensioner/mount

    Here are the completed tensioners fitted in the Flea, I opted for a fork end on the cable which bought the price up to $48 each, not a bad price. I tensioned the cables until they gave off a pleasant twang but will tension them correctly when they are permanantly fitted, I have to remove the fin...

    Cable pulley tensioner/mount

    If the 12 oz example was the end product then that would be a valid point but this was to be the first attempt, the next one would be streamlined and weight pared from it or maybe a different approach would be made. Already the suggestion that something similar to a motorcycle rear wheel spindle...

    Cable pulley tensioner/mount

    Yes, I was well aware of the different weights of the two devices but decided to try it anyway. And it is not a contraption it is a proof of concept device that fills a particular need on my aircraft. If we all followed the well trodden path we would all still be flying Wright flyers.
