    Slepcev Storch Documents

    Plan to copy this beauty! It is a restored original in the UK. Phil, You are probably familiar with it. I think it is a pre war/very early war pattern before they went with the camo. I plan to add some yellow wing tips and maybe fuselage band for some better aerial recognition. Will do without...

    Slepcev Storch Documents

    This was one of the emails I received from Nestor concerning Storch availability last year. Don't know how valid it is now. It shows his contact info. From: Nestor Slepcev <[email protected]> To: [email protected] Sent: Mon, Jul 13, 2020 8:32 pm Subject: Re: Current kit info/prices etc...

    Slepcev Storch Documents

    Wow Helmut, that is a beautiful example of a Slepcev Storch! One of the nicest I have seen. It is very refreshing to see one in a more of a civil-non ww2 paint scheme (although I may go with a military paint scheme on mine!) What is the significance/meaning of the markings on the rear of the...

    Slepcev Storch Documents

    Hello Good luck on your search! I am really having fun with my project. Mine was a kit consisting of new and used parts. It is a Slepcev Storch SS-4 which I believe would equate to a VLA version. I was never quite sure what the difference was between this and the ultralight UL? version. If all...

    Newton V9 fuel selector valve

    Thanks for all the feedback and suggestions. I think my main area of uncertainty is how the low pressure fuel return works, but Mr. Zeitlin's comments help clear this up. It seems there are many Rotax 912 fuel systems installed out there without return lines, so I was debating whether it is...

    Newton V9 fuel selector valve

    Would love a little help with this. I bought a Newton V9 four way duplex valve to use on my Slepcev Storch fuel system from Aircraft Spruce. It has L,R, Both and Off settings. Also has provision for returning excess fuel back to one of the wing tanks. It has total of 6 inlet/outlets. I guess I...

    CRIQUET Fi156C3 3/4 REPLICA STORCH

    Just saw this thread. That is a good looking airplane for sure- in its own ugly storch way!. I think I saw a for sale ad featuring this plane not too long ago on Barnstormer for what I thought was a great price ,40k, but maybe with some landing gear damage?. Wonder where it ended up. I must say...

    Slepcev Storch Prop choice?

    Yes, I got my Storch from Slepcev. The previous owner of mine is having one built with extended wings for STOL competition. Slepcev took this one back in trade. Supposedly has less than 40 hours on the airframe. No engine,prop or electronics/instruments and no documentation. I'm not too happy...

    Slepcev Storch Prop choice?

    AirTrikes, thanks for the additional info. I am impressed with your credentials. In the small world department my wife is a dual citizen from Russia. An acquaintance of hers and mine (here in Fayetteville, NC) is a graduate of MAI. He was a flight engineer in Russian air force and now a WO in US...

    Slepcev Storch Prop choice?

    Seems the Storch will have somewhat of an advantage over some other designs keeping the prop tips cleaner and maybe nick free since the main gear is so tall. Down side to that is the gymnastics needed to gain entrance to the cockpit! Thanks for all the feedback guys. I have a lot to think about...

    Slepcev Storch Prop choice?

    Hi, I am new to the forum and am putting together a slepcev storch I recently imported without engine or prop. I have a new rotax 912 100hp being shipped. I would welcome any input on prop choices. I was leaning towards a 3 blade ground adjustable composite sensenich mostly because it is a well...

    F Storch

    Saw this thread. I am a new Slepcev Storch project owner. I am really happy with it so far, but have a long way to go getting it back in the air. I have some recent dealings with the designer. If I can answer any questions please let me know

    Hello from NC, Storch project in the works.

    I have been reading a lot of great info on this forum for a while. Thought I would intro myself. I am a long time fan of homebuilt/experimental aircraft and flying in general. WW2 history is another hobby. I have restored several vintage military vehicles. Years ago I started a Marcel Jurca 75%...
