    Very nice work I have some of those too. I just modified the newer ones. probably not as nice as yours will be.  I do like the looks of them.

    The first issue I see is your poor glue joints from the wing rib to the spars will be so stressed they will eventually pop loose.  I would adjust your prop first and see if that helps.

    EDMO
    Bad news guys I talked to someone today who said ED had Passed away.   He was a fun guy to chat with on this forum and I am glad I got to know him.  I loved buying airplane parts from him they would always show up in an old rickety vacuum box of some sort. If anyone is interested in any of his projects I believe there is an EAA guy over there trying to help sell things. Im not sure how you would go about contacting him.

    Aeromomentum  uses them and that looks like a good engine. No experience with them but that's my thoughts

    You may have longer wingstruts if its scratch built.

    I bet an Avid on floats will be a blast too. Are you allow you to land on the small water reservoirs in the mountains? I always thought that would be fun.

    You weld it or glue it in so when you change springs in the field because they break first you don't need to take off the horizontal stabilizer to get your arm in there and try to hold a bolt.  lets be honest the only time that bolt will ever have to be replaces is when you re fabric every 30 years. And your right a simple inspection cover would solve all the issues but you also have to look at them.
