Jab USA 3300 650 cowls

Ok Brian's trust.For those with a jab 3300 USA firewall cowl kit. Did you use the -6 camloc's as mine all sit out about a dash longer and I really need -5. Or did people put an aluminium strip between the fibreglass and the camloc's?Chris Zenith 650 Sydney AustraliaSee More

XL center spar removal

Posted on January 17, 2010 at 12:34am 3 Comments

Hi All
just removed my center spar and had to remove one of the rear spar uprights to get the spar out. Has anyone removed the spar by just removing the 2 FWD spar uprights and how did you do it for the benifit of others?

He's very helpful, I'm currently getting in his way as he assembles a cruzer, learning heaps.

I also know Richmond very well of course. I can remember as a small kid wandering the base which had wonderful a/c parked everywhere, gooney birds each with "very savage" (I was told) German Shepherd dog tied to it. Mustangs and all sorts.

regards Richard

Hi Chris, I have had 3 months off with a broken collar bone but just started back.

About to close up the second wing then will get back to the fuse with a little help from my son when he comes down, he is a Airbus engineer.

Hi Chris,

I know of one in SA at Goolawa, about 400km from Port Augusta. His 601 XLB is flying. have email him a few times, think he works away, long time between email. I have also been giving Allan at Bendigo a hard time.I have the wings, tail ,fuel system,control system ordered and pay for before the Aust dollar crashed, still cost $220 more. but will cost a lot more for fuselage, if Aust dollar stays were it is. one can only hope the green back falls 10c. We will see, regaurds chris B.

Hi Chris yes i bought another 601 XLB from Dave Graham 19-5466 jab 3300 engine After the sale of my first XL i had a spell for about 12 months and then bought an Alegro 2000 Sorry to say the worst mistake i ever made I flew one here in Busselton and tought i liked it and got one from Qeensland but quickly found out that it was not what i wanted I sold it and had a break but could not forget my first XL flipping through the ra aus magazine i came across 19-5466 and the rest is history so to say. i just love it, having flown several others they are hard to beat and i always enjoy it every time i take it out. So there is your answer Hope all is well with you ...are you still flying an XL ?? Regards Guido
