    This is a slightly stretched KR2 project, with all the parts and subassemblies to complete the airframe.

    Parts Wanted used Corvair Conversion Manual

    I'm looking for a used 0100 Corvair Conversion Manual. Have built an aircraft VW, I just want to see how much work building a Corvair would be.. If anyone has a spare or old copy, I think that will let me know if I should buy the new manuals from them.

    Lamb undercarriage in a KR2 - seeking any info at all

    A prior owner was setting up retractable gear with this, but I will be happier with fixed gear. Do you have any additional info about the Taylor monoplane gear, Don? I'm asking because the nose gear has a spring in it, and bounces nicely. However, the mains don't give at all. Makes me think...

    Lamb undercarriage in a KR2 - seeking any info at all

    Don, you're correct - it is THAT Lamb gear. I know it's old, but it's on this plane, and I'm trying to find out if it's worthwhile to remove it and replace with the Diehl gear I have in the hangar. This Lamb nose gear is pretty robust! Where could I get a schematic or even a manual for it?

    Lamb undercarriage in a KR2 - seeking any info at all

    I have two KR2 projects, and trying to decide which to finish. I just learned at this months' KR Gathering in Missouri, that one has Lamb mains and nose gear on it. I'm looking for a parts manual, exploded diagrams, owners manual, etc - to decide if I should keep it or replace it. I've found...

    Tell us what you are building!

    Yep, it's the most unknown fast & cheap homebuilt out there (The ORIGINAL fiberglass plans-built kit). We just finished the 2021 gathering in Missouri; one KR attending had won a bronze Lindy the last time it was at Oshkosh. Mine has an O-200 and if I can just keep it light, will cruise easily...

    Tell us what you are building!

    I'm finally getting around to building a KR-2 composite airplane. Was working on one in 1994, but a divorce forced the sale of that VW powered 2-place composite craft. Now, I have a similar one, plus a new wife who actually likes to fly. We have a 172A, which is a great plane for we empty...
