    The biplane had a damaged chassis and was too ambitious in the competition.
    After a repair and with a replacement propeller, he was able to fly back on his own

    Hello Fred,
    I will try to set the appointment here in time for the next meeting. On my own homepage, the appointment is about half a year before. So if I'm sleeping again, look at avidflyeraircraft.de.rs. You did not miss so much on the meeting. It was very familiar. The avid flyers from germany seem to be more in the hangar than in the air Get in touch, if you fly here through Germany. Best regards Martin

    Information:   http://www.avidflyeraircraft.de.rs
    or http://www.edqz.de/Termine/Termine.html
    If the meeting cannot be run as scheduled on 07 Juli due to poor visibility orunfavourable wind conditions, the alternative date is set for 21 Juli 2018.
    (The meeting is not an official event, everyone flies independently, we use the facilities of the airfield. Think on your tent, approach Saturday and return flight on Sunday, then there is time for campfires & Co)

    No sorry, not want so say that i had a lockable Matco tailwheel. I say be carefull with a locked tailwheel. Our tailwheel was locked, because the cam-plate was missing. If it is locked while the cam-plate is lost or while it is an manually locked is the same effect. Sorry for my bad english.

    Hello dynomike,
    which scoops you mean?  The scoops on the orange cowling... are for an rotax 912. The avid jabiru are with white cowl with red nose and the white cowl. Both with helix-propellers.
    The scoops on the orange cowl are for the carburators. The cowl was originally for an rotax 582. Thomas rebuild the cowl for his rotax 912.
    We had no problems with rear cyl. heat. The air intake must be lower than the escape.
    When you need information about cooling the jabiru, we can make photos.

    Be carefull with a locked tailwheel.
    On the first fly with our avid flyer, the cam-plate (for unlock the tailwheel on matco tailwheels) was removed. I had my first groundloop... and while turning the tailwheel scratched over the asphalt. The result was a bend frame, a broken wing and many hours of working on plane.
    In the repair, we buy a cam-plate for the tailwheel.
    Some months later, we had a groundloop again. Max. wind from the side (crosswind 15kn) on concrete. The controler ban a land on grass... . After landing a unvoluntary ballet. We need 200ft and two groundloops ... on a 4133ft runway. No damage! No wing on the ground. And no full trousers...
    For me is a tailwheel that unlock when groundloop the best guarantee for no damage.
    When you can unlock or lock it manually... do it like EDMO say...but in groundoop unlock it.

    Does a Kitfox wing fit on an Avid mk4 ???

    the idea is a possible weight increase of the weight with proven wings.
    The newer Kitfox have in germany 472,5kg MTOW the avid mk4 only 450kg MTOW.

    Has anyone ever tried something like this?
