I had a replacement and was warned about infections. You even have to have antibiotics before dental work. Evidently, any infection heads for the knee. I am truly sorry to hear about her problem. It gives me a new heads up as I have become careless about it. Give her my best and tell her my prayers are with her.
This is the first time I have been on this site in months. Glad to see you had Zenith in Sept. I haven't gotten as much done as I would have liked, do to an 8 week illness of my father and his death. Sometimes family must come first.
Craig has started his part of the project. He has completed the canopy and is now starting to put the plane together and install controls.
I am completing the wings. It should be flying by spring.
Rich, I'll post a new Blog with pictures next week. I'm heading back tomorrow to address the discrepancy list, I'll have 7 days, that should be enough.
We decided that the dogs can be home alone when my wife goes to work, so that solves returning for fight testing. Hoping to return in early May, the weather will be the issue, May is the heart of the windy season in Southwestern Idaho.
I like the idea of using the 12' hardwood for a brake, waste not want not.
I noticed your question to Dwight about where to find full sheets of veneer for your panel.
you might look into a plastic laminate like Formica, it's little easier to work with and it is much cheaper and it's much more durable.
But if you must have a wood veneer then try an outfit here in WA called EDEN SAW.
They are on of the premier wood suppliers to the yachting industry here and they have all sorts of exotics.
Oh, and by the way... Nice work! Keep it up:)
Yeah mine were pre-punched to. Did enlarge a little, hard to remember which direction they restricted me though. Thinking about it i'd say that it may be part of the reason as to why the fold is a tiny bit low. I'd say it probably happens to alot of people then. Did ask zenith about it and they weren't to worried about it.
