Holy Molly, my mind is blown! Nice work !Impressive, beautifully-built little aeroplane!
My own trailerable single seater is a bit different; the fuselage folds around over the one-piece wing and no controls are disconnected.
I have assembled it off the carrier in 18 minutes, but half an hour is a more sensible time.
This is what it looked like years ago:
Today it looks like this:
I Love it, there's more design in the trailer than there is in the plane
Thanks George; I’m in Quirindi- no further geographic information required because there’s only one Quirindi on the planet....Where the Bloody hell are you located in Australia. I'm in Brissie...
Good point, HW. My aircraft carrier took a couple of years to build, but enabled me to quickly set up to fly each weekend. Worth the effort.Ditto.
That is more of a portable assembly line than a trailer.
IMHO it is a solution we, those of us that are interested in portable planes, should consider more often. It adds another layer of engineering and construction to the task but the overall savings of time and money can be a good trade...
I have a tie-down under the wing, but rarely use it; a snug fit seems to keep it stable, but there are a few marks from rubbing while passing over bumps. No matter how much care is invested, trailering will always result in some wear and tear.How practical is it to simply chock and chain wheels to the trailer floor? With landing gear shock absorbers be enough to prevent airframe damage on rough roads?
