    Fabricating hinges? Conflicting plans diagrams.

    Ok, looking at my plans of my Volmer VJ-22. I noticed a discrepancy in fabricating the hinges. They are like the Aeronca hinges on the rudder and elevators. The plans state several different sizes. .375 od x 060 wall, .380 od x 060, 375 od x .250id. All 4130. And it states to "ream to fit" after...

    Would 3D illustrations on Plans be useful?

    In drawing up a plans set i was wondering if 3D illustrations would be of great benefit to the builder? Or would it simple be just flash for selling and looking cool?

    What's the difference between a sensitive and non-sensitive altimeters?

    This question came up on the EAA forum and really no-one came up with a solid answer. Someone said if it has a kollsman window it is a sensitive altimeter, but then some one else showed in the Aircraft Spruce and Specialty catalog a picture of a non-sensitive with a kollsman window. Whats the...

    Free Sectional Charts from the FAA site.

    :ban: Sectional Raster Aeronautical Charts I found this site via a posting on the Seaplaneforum.com website (Nice forum btw). It shows you can down load almost any sectional for "FREE". It works great. You can zoom in to see all the details of the section that you want. The only problem is i...

    When do you start logging time on your engine?

    I was just letting my mind wander the other day and out pops a question. When do you start logging time for your engine in your homebuilt? Does it start the first time you crank it over or after initial starting, bugs worked out and running good ready for flight? :)

    What do you do with your plane?

    :) As promised, i'm starting this thread to find out exactly what people do with their planes. I'm asking because a few people on another thread gave the impression that flying a plane gets boring quick and there's nothing really to do besides get you from A to B. Where do you fly to and what...

    Circuit breakers or fuses?

    When i was at Copperstate i noticed several aircraft, all LSA's, using a fuse panel instead of circuit breakers. It sure is a cheaper way of doing it but is it just as good? I would not be wanting to look for a replacement fuse while flying, where as resetting a circuit breaker is easy...
