Re: Night Light

If I mount this to my wings with a green on the other side, can I fly at night? :lol:

Re: 3D printed winter cowl cover

Im unable to produce them, but I can share the files. I have a STEP and a parasolid file I can share. They might be too big to post on here or incorrect format. Other than that, I used the 3-640 Aeronca drawing for the holding hardware. I used monadnock clip nuts with locking nuts and 1" 8-32 s...

Re: 3D printed winter cowl cover

Ridges are to keep the cover within the opening. This is based on the print 3-640. I found designed to that print the cover didnt fit my cowl.

3D printed winter cowl cover

Decided to think of a creative way to block the small inlet below the prop. Created the solid model and had it SLS 3D printed out of Nylon 12. Going to place some rubber strip on the back side edge and mount this weekend. Here are some pics. I had another one printed from Nylon 12 CF (30% Carbon fib...

Trade metal for wood prop?

My new to me champ came with a standard pitch metal prop. Thinking of putting a add out for trading for a wood climb prop.

Looking for thoughts on this.

Thanks

Trim Knob/Handle

My new to me champ didn't come with a knob, only a 3/4 length of threads.

I can fab one up easy but would like to see what the "stock" version looks like. Any one have any pics.

Thanks!
