  1. I’m looking for the strength/force of the standard bungee setup. 90” loop to loop, 7 wraps of type I 3/8” shock cord (aircraft spruce ref. 06-12400). I.e. what is the force required to stretch it to the maximum expected extension...
    Does anyone know, or know how to calculate it? (Asking before building a rig to measure it...)
  2. My bungees have been on the loose side and today I went from seven wraps to eight wraps. Was able to do it by myself with the help of clamps.

  3. I was just looking at the bungee cords on my newly acquired Avid Flyer (Model A/B/C little bit from each).  Everything that I have read says that you should use 3/8 bungee with 7 wraps on the bottom and 6 on the top.  The current bungees on the plane look to be at least 1/2" cord with three wraps on the bottom and two on the top.  Anyone have any idea of why this would have been set up this way?
  4. I am getting ready to replace the bungees on my landing gear and I have read that I should use 3/8 Shock Cord (Aircraft Spruce 06-12400) at 90 inches between the loops.  As I was getting ready to buy the bungees, I noticed that they had these nice little fasteners (06-12900) which should work nicely.  Has anyone ever used them?  I presume here that it should be 90 inches bottom of fastener to bottom of fastener.
