I meant PIK-26. I don’t know how to get rid of the autocorrection feature on my iPad.

Was a very active facebook group before too - again a lot of spanish - but at least that auto-translates.

See if I can work copy/paste today

Or you learn how to use the equipment correctly ... :popcorn:

That would be great if it actually worked, but it doesn't solve the problem. And I say that as I type on my iPad Pro that I kinda hate, and regret buying, even with autocorrect disabled. And I was in IT for years, so I'm not technologically challenged. But Topaz is right. We're off topic. Anyway, there's a topic here somewhere on tablets in the cockpit, and this would be better addressed there.

Seems simple enough ... but I'll leave it alone.

Apologize for the thread drift ...😏

Actually it was my fault. I was just trying to crack a joke. Sorry.

There is a FB group which might be able to help you. You can always post the question in English although the primary language for the group is Spanish. I imagine that a few of the members might be fluent in English.


Within these forums I believe that there was a Brazilian Air Force pilot who was also building one so you could try to reach him. I just cannot find the thread right now.

Good luck

I am doing google search, but looks like most of them are on YouTube. Sent some questions but no answers yet...

I have a reduced printed copy of the plans. I'll dig them out and see if I can find the info on the main spar dimensions. Does anybody have a table of ordinates on the wing airfoil?

Here is his thread (by Andre Marcelo), it documents the final portion of his build.

Pik-26 conclusion is near

It would be worth searching for his other posts, too. I think it is fair to say that he faced a lot of challenges with the airframe and his powerplant. IIRC, he has recommended to a few other folks that they choose a different path.
