    My 1100R Minimax build

    I know the minimax would be cheaper to finish and fly but I really need something with more than one seat that has decent cruise for x countrys. The bonanza just seems to make more sense right now and I would like to get some high performance complex time out of it. 12,000 is just an estimate...

    My 1100R Minimax build

    update 4/25/13 - 5/7/13 4.5 hrs starting here. I finished my jig and made 8 standard ribs. everything seems to be going well so far, all the ribs are coming out the same. does anyone know if scuff sanding is required while using aircraft ply? I was just wondering what the reason for this...

    Survey - New designs from JDT Mini-Max

    I think it would be cool if they made an acrobatic mini-max and called it the acromax I would buy it.

    thanks rray I recently acquired a copy AC 43. one thing I don't quite understand when making scarf joints do you glue end grain to end grain? or face to face? update I scraped the fuselage sides because there was just too much going wrong. the plywood I used wasn't water proof. I was...

    My 1100R Minimax build

    thanks for the help, the heat gun seems to work pretty good on test pieces, so I may go ahead and redo the sides for ease of mind. this isn't going to be an ultralight seeing as it's going to come in around 400 lbs, which means I'm going to have to register it as an experimental amateur built...

    My 1100R Minimax build

    I need some help I was reading up on the use of plywood in aircraft, and I read that it has to be laminated with a water proof glue, boiled for 3 hrs and tested for shear strength. well the ply I used only lasted 2 hours before it started coming apart and I already used it for the side panels...

    My 1100R Minimax build

    the project is taking its first brake. I need some 3/4" aircraft grade birch ply but I can't find it anywhere, I'm also out of money. I was thinking of building a cnc milling-engraving machine and using it to raise money for the project. but the only problem there is it costs money to make...
