I am just curious if you were able to get a little smaller size tundra tire or how you got one a little narrower? I have been flying my stol 750 since a year ago in May with 120 hours on it and my front tire rubs on both sides, mostly in cross wind landings, Higher air pressure seems to help a little. Doesn’t really bother me much, just isn’t right.
Humbling is an understatement, but educational is also true. Every time I finish something I realize that I could have done it faster/cheaper/better! Looks like you are getting very close to 1st flight on your project. Right now I am working on the cabin doors. I have the new version, and the plans/photo guide is let's say lacking... Did you build your with the new style doors? If so, do you happen to know what the rivet pitch is that holds the bubble around the frame?
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.
