Jeez, I was such a brat. Don’t know what my old CFI is doing these days but I’m sipping coffee at FL450 in a falcon so can’t complain anymore.
Does anyone know if DDM is still in business or if it's still possible to get a c85 stroker from them?
I think were going to go with poly-fiber but wasnt sure if it would need heavier fabric due to it being a seaplane.
Quick question, what type of fabric and weight is recommended for re-covering a certified aircraft on floats like a taylorcraft or J3
The O-200 on the 150 was fine, I'm not expecting PT6 reliability but the rotax 2 strokes don't have the best record
I feel I could enjoy a wide variety of aircraft still, aerobatics, XC machine, Back country flying, I could make the best out of whatever I find....
[ATTACH] thanks everyone! Here's one of the 20+ that we operate,47 series.
Hey guys, I just discovered the Starlite SL1, looks like a pretty neat little airplane. Does anyone have any information on them by any chance? I...
Awesome! Sounds great guys! See ya at OSH
Any progress with the project? I'd be very interested in kits for the f6f or (fingers crossed) a 109 replica
Yay time to revive an old thread. Question for you 103 guys, with a part 103 legal float plane, can you just land wherever you have space or is it...
Anyone have an idea how to bend a rudder horn? It's 0.1" thick and I can't bend it in my brake because I only need to bend the middle section.
site updated, got a metal brake and got half the ribs bent together. Had to make one of them 3 times to get it right!
Website updated! Rudder is almost ready to be welded together. Now I just need to weld those pesky hinges together.
hm good to know. The bend radius on this part isn't very small. The practice rib I made had a radius of about 4 times the thickness of the...

All progress will be posted there. Just got a nice big shipment of steel so away we go!
Will bending sheet steel with the grain really cause problems in a part like rudder ribs?
yup! That build log has already saved me hours of guessing and frustration on how some of the parts go together
Unfortunately there is no build manual, just a set of drawings with dimensions and your imagination! Pictures from other peoples laser builds have...
Thanks for the great tips! I did the rudder jig measurements by hand and will continue to do so for everything but the rib jig. I'll definitely...
