The plane got a new home hanger mate the other day. The wife said I didn't have enough going on so we brought this project home we've had for a few years in storage. Desert Fox Spoiler corvair powered Manx clone.
Question(s) while building the daah I noticed the dash support isn't going to allow the D6 to be placed in the wanted position, in front of the pilot. Looks like I'm going to have to the setup this way. Anyone forsee any issues with checking airspeed or AOA while flying/landing/taking off? Seems that the fan has blown away my ignition switch and USB Port papers but they are easy to imagine.
Moving forward as I wait for pitot tube parts to arrive, the cardboard aided design is in full tilt today on the dash. Have you heard of sendcutsend. Com you design in 2d send a .dxf file and they cut from steel or aluminum. This dash with all the cut outs is under $50 bucks from .080 aluminum! SHIPPED!!
So I have a new issue! Put my the new pitot tube protector on and decided to add a bit of air to the cabin fitting to make sure it made the flap move..... No movement so I ran a thin wire 20 gauge soild copper got it about 5 inches in the pitot side and it stopped, 3 inches from the cabin. So I turned the air up a bit and BOOM what I thought was soild hard line in fact was hard to a 5' peice of soft plastic ¼ hose the blockage popped the fitting off one end of the soild line. Now I'm trying to figure out how to get the old hose that is wire tied every spare out and a new one installed. Any ideas folks?
