    wow it doesn't look all that wrecked. also the VWs do not like composite props. The impulse loading makes the crank go away. (Mostly because the aviation community is putting the prop on the WRONG end of the engine)

    Well, it's that time of year again. Starting 2023, copperstate is no longer associated with Buckeye Air Fair due to political complications.
    So it's only Buckeye Air Fair this year.

    Jim. I don't think my plane has any of the upgrades you mentioned. I'll try to get a look at it in the next couple days. I know it doesn't have the rudder pedal mods for instance.

  8. Avidventurous added a post in a topic Avid C Stol Rib Profile   

    The reason I was asking for this is I plan to make templates for the KitFox type rib tails. When I got my plane, one wing had ALL the Flapperon Hangerons broken off. I originally was going to fix them with wood and later decided I liked the KitFox aluminum setup much better.
    Since I am an EAA member, I downloaded (and plan to learn how to use) Solid Edge. Fortunately, our company has an ME that knows Solid Works and could probably help me get started with Solid Edge. Coincidentally we both share the name Keith.
    A big THANK YOU to Jim Chuk
    EDIT: If I get workable templates made for all the parts, I certainly will post them on the forum.

    Avid C Stol Rib Profile
    Hey guys. I apologize for asking something so obvious but I looked for quite some time and couldn't find it.
    I"m looking for an Excel Sheet or table of plot points for a Stol wing WITH ribtails for the flaperons. A 1:1 drawing or template would help also. I"m pretty sure it's already in the forum somewhere but I can't find it.
    THANKS

    This probably isn't the proper forum for this post. If so, feel free to move it.
    I thought you guys might be interested in an interesting quirk in hydrodynamics. I stumbled across this video on Utube. Please check out the first segment, although the rest of them are interesting also.

    Fatal In An Avid
    I just heard about an avid going down in Michigan. Evidently the passenger drowned but the pilot escaped. Heard abut it on Dan Gryder's channel. Time count 37:25
