    Ha, just spotted this old thread. We own this kit now. Not sure whether it will be sold or be kept as 'spares' for our MK4.
    Out of interest folks, any idea what these parts are as they were missing by the time we purchased the kit.

    Thank you. So that must be what we have on our current aircraft with speed wings. As the kit has both wing types I'll look to see if there are transitional ribs already in the parts.

    Thanks both. That is a good plan and it appears that one aircraft was built in this style in the UK already, meaning it shouldn't be a problem to get approved. I thought the root ribs were always undercamber style to meet the fuselage, even on speed wings? Where does the transitional rib go?

    Hi All
    By way of an update we have acquired an old but un-started Avid C kit with both HH and Speedwing parts, so we should be set to build a set of HH wings.

    Thanks
    Any idea whether this mod is needed just for the old MC-1 and if so is it when using two sets of MC-1s with reservoirs? I'm still not sure whether it's okay to use an old MC-1 with a newer pair of cylinders for the right seat.

    Adding dual brakes - Matco MC-1
    I want to add right seat brakes to our Avid MK4 which currently has MC-1 reservoir master cylinders for the left seat. Can anyone confirm whether it is okay to keep these when installing new non-reservoir master cylinders in series for the right seat. I've read somewhere about creating an unintentional parking brake function of both sides are used.. Are we better-off replacing the MC-1s?
    Regards

    Mark is replying to emails to say that he can still make an extension kit.
    I assume full HH wings would be better overall due to the lower washout and extra length?

    Hi
    It would be the wings and flapperons that I’d want as a complete set. Is there an accepted method to repair rib tails?

    It would be good if parts still existed somewhere.

    That’s very interesting. I have access to a CNC router. Did you say you do have the flapperons?
    i know it’s a long way but for me it might work...

    Hi, thanks. I guess there are quite a few parts that are factory made in the wings. I’m in the UK which isn’t convenient!
    I believe there are about 25 Speedwings here an one HH.

    Sort of a double post but I figured there might be more folks reading this section:
    If a chap wanted to build a new set of new STOL wings for an Avid MK4, are there any plans available? Were the flapperons part of the kit or fabricated by the customer?
    Thanks for any help.

    Hi, I'm negotiating on a MK4 taildragger now and will be interested if successful.
