Right you are, Fritz, I withdraw the question. I guess Bud Evans did know a thing or two!It might be easier to move the compass...
Thanks, TDD, it's great to see another real life example. It may just be the photo, but it looks like the roll bar on EI-BDL has the sides a little more vertical than what the plans show. It's also interesting that the builder elected to avoid the whole challenge of fitting the instruments in the limited cutout specified and instead made that into a chart box and put almost all the instruments in the pod on top.
I came up short looking for any pics of that one, TT, maybe you could find it in someone's photos from one of those fly-ins?Wish I had a picture of the VP-2 that I often see at low-key fly ins. It's red with yellow trim, full canopy and turtle deck, and is routinely seen with two guys on board. Now that I think of it, I wonder if it's VW powered or something bigger like a small Continental.
I'll see what I can find. I know I've even been parked beside it at some events but the pics must have been lost when my last hard drive but the dust.I came up short looking for any pics of that one, TT, maybe you could find it in someone's photos from one of those fly-ins?
