  1. Avidventurous added a post in a topic CopperState Flyin Buckeye AZ   

    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.

  6. 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

  14. Avidventurous added a post in a topic Avid with a Volkswagen   

    Those 92mm pistons with a stock stroke of 69mm makes an 1835cc. That configuration was very popular with the bug crowd years ago. When I built my bug I used 90.5 for 1755cc. The outside dimension is the same as 92 so I have thicker cylinder walls.
    There are tons of hot rod parts for VW out there but most of them make the horsepower at higher RPM which won't work well for a plane without a reduction unit.
    Keep us posted.

    you can find a lot of threads here about how crummy the performance is, poor rate of climb etc. However this guy doesn't seem to have much problem.

    Off topic slightly.
    Does anyone have any insight to how this applies to certified aircraft? I had an Aeronca Chief basket case dropped in my lap and can't seem to get the previous owner to come up with an 8050-3. BTW, it's been de registered.
