    Exactly. If a wing fails because of turbulence, I'd think all of us here would like to understand why. It would be nice if someone with skill could look at the spars and explain what not to try.

    That is almost identical (in principle) to the Wag 2+2 torque assembly, except the sticks are side by side. I like your approach to the bearings. The Wag design is just a strap over pillow blocks.

    That's an idea I think I'll steal (or borrow if you prefer) ;)

    I hadn't though of carbon. When I first looked I thought you were using rebar.

    Yes. BZN on a 95-100 degree day will open eyes for those used to the low levels. Nice big runway, too.

    Do you have left and right hand snips? And are they tight? When they are, you can snip a hair's width off if necessary.

    Good point. The tailwheel on there now is a Maule. The original is a Scott 2000. It does look like the leaf spring is a bit aggressive.
