My son and I rented a truck, and picked up the tail kit at the truck terminal - his first time seeing one of those. We used a couple of furniture dollies to move the crate. Then, while we had the truck, we picked up an air compressor and some wood for the workbench. Next is to build the work bench.

Hi group. Has anyone successfully fixed a heavy left wing problem?
After my first test flight I needed almost full right aileron trim to get back to wings level.
I have tried adjusting the LH flap down 3mm but this had almost no effect!
I cannot measure any wing incidence differences between the wings.
There is almost no appreciable wing drop on stall.
Anyone have any suggestions?

We are trying to install the Ray Allen position sensor for the flap. We have the linear motor and the Ray Allen sensor which moves 1.2 inch. Has anyone out there installed this combination, and could you share a description and pictures? We know the flap arm travels 52mm but the sensor only travels 30mm.
We have the wiring ok to the panel indicator.
thanks, Wes & Lurlene Bressler

Reality TV is for sissies. Honestly, I have seen these programmes of 'challenges' in remote areas - they are really not reality at all...

I've been too busy building to bother adding posts! Anyways, cut out the skin, drilled, made the front and rear supports, clecoed the skin back on, marked out the front slot and slots for front supports, took the skin off, cut the slots, deburred everything, painted joint areas with primer and riveted the supports (7H2-6 and 7H2-7, I think they are) into place.
Today I put the skin back on (obviously had to cleco the curved side first, in order to slip over the front supports),…Continue
