First we'd like to thank all who responded to our last request for help on our flap position sensor. It really helped and our sensor turned out great. Now we'd appreciate suggestions for a secondary canopy latch. We tried one that didn't work out too well. Pictures are especially appreciated!
Thanks, Wes & Lurlene Bressler; N601WL; 601XLB

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?
I'v been thinking of building a plane for years and just bought the plans for a 701 and have spent more time printing every thing out ,and trying to decide what to build and what to buy ? well the rudder kit sayes it takes about 12 hours and testing the waters with junk I had laying around from scratch I built a 100%mockup of the rudder in less time then the 12 hr for the kit and this included cuting the forming blocks and fabercating the part's assembly was the shortist time (note) this is…Continue
