    If Troy Woodland hadn't volunteered his shop for me to fix it in it would have taken longer to fix. Troy's a great guy!

    I wrecked my Kitfox
    The end of July I flew out to Suches GA to the Just-Aircraft fly-in out at Kennedy Creek, which is in northern GA.  I was flying in the STOL competition they had there (not cause a had a chance and beating the Just-Aircraft but more for practice than anything)   and on my first landing my right rudder peddles broke, unfortunately my peddles hadn't been reinforced, which then resulted in a ground loop. 
    One of the spectators got a video of my incident and shared it with me, so here it is.    https://youtu.be/rIkYKB6JHQE.

    Thanks guys, that's what I wanted to know. There is no moving parts in the wing so it make sense that there doesn't need to be inspections holes all over the place

    The wing tips are removable. I had an A$P tell me there wasnt enough inspection covers in the wings and that I was gonna have to put a bunch more in. But maybe there doesn't need to be that many?

    The wings on my Kitfox don't have any inspection holes in them. What are the places that need them?

    Seein how short I can STOL my Kitfox
    I made my landing and takeoff lines 400' apart. So I could land on a 400' runway(not that I would). My combined T/O and landing distance is 335'
    Y'all should post up some vids so I can compare

  12. FireFoxIV added a post in a topic Carburetor issue.   

    When I bought my kitfox, the previous owner had the mechanic, that did the annual, rebuild the carbs, and on my flight home I stopped for the night and the engine quit on landing roll out and when I popped the cowl this is what I found The bolts in the carb boot where only hand tight and had back out after 2.5hrs of flying. 
     
    50hrs after the carb rebuild it started to run rough at idle a few weeks ago, and when I took the carbs apart to see what was up, 75% of the o-rings where cracked.
