    Thanks for posting the news, TJay. Ed's posts were always interesting. I wish I could have met him in person. He will be missed on the forum.

    There is a set of Aeroset 1100's on Marketplace in Northern MN that someone has for sale. They are mounted on a Kitfox.

    Nice work, TJay!
    How did you determine each weight should be 600 grams?

    That's not bad at all considering the time savings. Your wings are turning out very nice.

    Thanks for the video, TJay. Nice work!
    I'm curious what it cost to have the parts cut out.

    It is not a Solidworks format. The scans were done on an industrial 3D measurement system and the 3D format is not open and usable in other software. The best I can do is the bitmap images that I posted above.
    It should be possible to import the bmp images into Solidworks and draw the parts. I have done this many times in Autocad.

    Unfortunately I do not. The 3D image is not an open format that can be used for 3D printing.

    What plane do you need measurements for? I have an Avid C and Mk4 that I can measure.

    Here are some images of the speed and undercambered ribs that I scanned in 3D and then converted to bitmap images. These images are very accurate with no distortion and could be used to make patterns. You will just need to have them printed at a scale where the spar center to center measurement is 27.5"

    Jim, thanks for the offer. I was able to get the measurements I need. Looks like about 5.5" was cut out of my pipe.

    Lenny, I think you are comparing apples and oranges here. You are right that these guys are not bush pilots flying bush planes and I don't think that is what Yamma-Fox meant by calling them the best STOL guys. Maybe it would be more accurate to call them great STOL Competition guys. They are very entertaining to watch and are drawing large crowds at Oshkosh and STOL competitions around the country and this is helping draw a younger audience into an aging and dying industry. Some of those kids might even become real bush pilots some day.
