    Well now its on to her tail, installed the stabilizers ect, started to adjust flywires and found way to much slack in the jackscrew and yoke, tried to save a buck, soooooo waitin to order one on monday from Stodards. Got 5g in the ass of this baby so whats another $500 right? Hahahaaaa. Well 3g of it was for the fancy new Atlee Dodge 3” extended tail feathers, those will really help to make the Crosswinds STOL wings work good. Ill b headed down to Wasilla again on or about the 21st of this month for week or two to finish wings (parts r finally on way from Dakota Cub) and to fit wings on fuse and set them up, make cables ect. So when i come back with wings they b ready to cover, tail b ready to cover, then a little more work on fuse and ill start covering of it also. YAHOO DAD MAY FLY AGAIN THIS SUMMER.

    Well believe the answer to ur question is its a standard piper airfoil, but will have Crosswind Stol leadin edge cuff, tips, ect.  
    As far as whats happening at the home garage fuse project,,, i installed the dash, and starting to lay the wireing back in, mayb even get torque tube, front seat frame, stripped, painted, and installed today.

    Go to any auto parts store and ask for the correct cap pressure u need, when i built my bluefox i bought a new cap from Orielly’s, get a parts guy that not dumb, and just tell him the pressure u want. Thats what Leni told me to do, mine was same size as automotive and newer snowmacines.
