    Avid manufacturer
    Does anyone know what happened to all the manufacturing dies molds etc after Mark Mendick closed Avid Kitplanes? Is anyone thinking of picking up the gauntlet and running with it?

    I have tried getting a hold of Mark at Avid Airplane company and no response. Anyone know if he is actually doing anything with his company?

    Have you made progress on your plane? It is sometimes a challenge to get a project that was started by several others.

    To continue this topic. I am setting my elevator travel. Three questions 1. with 30 degrees up and 17 down do you feel you have good pitch control at all speeds? 2. Is the travel limit an attempt to control pitch forces on the airframe? 3. My construction manual has the up travel limited by the elevator horn hitting the vertical stabilizer post and the down limited by adjusting the fork so the control arm binds at the torque tube when you get the 17 degrees down. Does that all sound correct ? I think I like the stop better.

    That is some really fine work you are doing. How did you form the firewall? I am currently at that stage on my plane.

    Avid Aircraft out of business?
    I have been trying to get in contact with Mark Mendick at Avid Aircraft but his phone shows user busy or I get a busy tone and he never answers his email. Did the company go under again?

    You might try Uflyit. They have a selection of light weight plastic (pvc I think) fairings. http://www.uflyit.com/

    Great looking plane. I bought a wide "bush gear" from Brett at Airdale. I think it will be a great improvement over stock. Still working on completing the plane.
