    Those are ones built for the Back Country Super Cub.  The ones I use for my Avid are made of wood and use four inch cargo straps for slings, sorry I don’t have any pictures of mine but pretty easy to build. Made them to come apart for easy storage.

    Simple enough to remove the wings and put them in a rack.  That is the way I would do it anyway.

    Are you still using 105 lacquer thinner for poly reducer?  I have been doing that for a while after reading you post about it with good results.
    I guess I’m set for poly tone a friend gave me several gallons of products some unopened. Cub Yellow will be my color of choice it appears if I repaint my plane.

  7. wypaul added a post in a topic Can you streamline a Kitfox with window trim   

    Glad to see someone do that T J nice work.  I bought the trim to try that for my gear legs but never carried thru.  Ended up just glueing an 2 1/4” X 1/4” strip on edge on the trailing edge of my gear leg, covered while covering the gear leg.  It of course ends up just a taper with the blunt 1/4” trailing edge.  This is the lazy man’s solution but I did pickup a few miles per hour in the gear leg cover.
    Great job T J and the videos really make great tutorials!

    Raven plans are available on the net, but it appears that all the work is done that would require them.

    I use clear Gorilla Tape.  Don’t know how much difference it really makes, some for sure.

    Lots of service bulletins over the years on those “stinking” floats.  I never did get reimbursed for the last two sets, jumped thru all the hoops and nothing CPS doesn’t even respond.  I fixed that problem for good and installed EFI.  Not cheap but I sure would do it again.
    Headed down to Mississippi the end of the month for the Heavy Maintenance class for the 912, then over to Georgia to pickup a KF5 with the new owner.  Should be quite the trip.  Bad news is we just now have enough snow for XC skiing, oh well.

    My friend is installing your version of the trim in his KF IV, He doesn’t have it tested yet.  If the wind ever backs off here for a day or two he can get it tweaked, I’ll let you know.

  15. wypaul added a post in a topic Unrecognized Stall   

    Just a little update this stall happened in a Kitfox IV. With my Avid I cannot produce the stall but with the KF it is easy to make it stall by approaching the stall with flaps on and then pulling them off causing the stall.  My Avid will not do that.  Combination of the different wing and flaperon I suspect.
