"The doors are completed and deciding how to mount bubble windows. Deciding on Dynon SE rather than more complex system. Engine mount first."

Cradle plans for Two wings?

Does anyone have plans for a cradle for two wings while I finish the fuselage? I am a kit builder since I do not have the capability of independent building or construction.See More

"Drilled bottom skins and strut and spar last evening. Now is time for massive disassemble and deburring. Riveting is anticlimatic."

Cruzer owners with Viking 130 or 150 engines and successful installations?

Posted on January 30, 2017 at 8:19pm 3 Comments

I am very near pulling the trigger about an engine purchase. THE QB fuse is now starting to be finished. All of the other components are almost finished. I am having an anxiety attack. ?(should I ground myself)

I was initially planning on UL 350 IS but now I am contemplating a Viking 130 or 150. Is there anyone out there that could help me. I would appreciate your insight.

Leak testing using Air instead of gas for tank

Posted on January 18, 2017 at 7:25am 0 Comments

I was able to leak test the installed pilot gas tank with air saving a great deal of grief.

I capped vent tube with rubber cap and clamp, pressure gauge in fuel line and air hose in fuel return line.

The gas cap was sealed with double sheet of saran wrap.

The pressure was 2-3 PSI and the tank was installed and gas tank skin was clecoed closed.

It was much easier than disassembly and bench testing with gas. 

The tank needed to be installed for this…

Cradle plans for Two wings?

Cruzer CH-750 factory assembled wing spar.

Posted on December 10, 2016 at 11:23pm 18 Comments

I started the right passenger wing skeleton, it seems the factory assembled wing spar has multiple rivets in locations which will need to be drilled out to install nose ribs and rear ribs. Maybe I am missing something or have the wrong spar?
Is this a common occurrence or am I just unlucky?

Dr. Terry.  My cell is 830 258-3527.  Give me a call about any time between 7 a.m. and 10 p.m.  I would be glad to talk about the 701 or the 110 Viking.

I belong to Chpt 277, meetings at SI airport at C'dale.  But, the real fun is the lunches we have every Tue & Thur at Marion.  Great group of guys and a lot of experience there.  Builders of several different types.  I'm sure Clark told you about it. 

I will get with you to see your progress (I've been following it here) in person.  Going to get my next kit pieces from Mexico soon.

Hello.  I live a few miles east of Johnston City.  Retired 10 yrs ago from the VA Med Cntr in Marion as a Budget Analyst.  I did the rudder class a year ago (Nov 15) and have only built the horiz stab and elevator.  I hope to get another kit section and work on it this winter.

I have joined the local (Marion Carbondale) EAA, and we meet for an informal lunch Tues & Thurs at KMWA at the FBO.  Some experienced builders in that group.

Started construction of work space with 16 ft X 4 ft work bench suggested at ZAC rudder class 

Will be ready to start Tail section and continue in sections

Looking at videos and manual.
