    Seems to me I saw a metal flap or aileron in the back of Stoddards. It would be worth a call. If you have some Morebetterdisease as you fix the plane AOSS gear is one of the best bang for the buck...

    You lucky dog!!! Both are bad. The strainer leak covered up the valve leak until the end of the year! Just suck it up and fix both. Cessna found a way to build a plane around a fuel valve but it...

    I agree, like I said with his power I don't think it will be an issue either way. I have just seen a lot of high performance tail gear come out lately that is great for landing but really does set...

    Very nice system!! Great for landing and parking in wind, but a tail that high is going to hurt AOA on takeoff. Once the tailwheel touches the ground on rotation you are adding drag and delaying...

    It is always better to have every part on the plane at least once before fabric goes on so you are on the right path. You could always just grind off the spot welds put in nut plats and reweld, how...

    Had some time to think about it. Bonding the hinge is probably a bad ideal because the fabric will be covering the frame before the hinge is placed on. As much as I hate pop rivets do you have...

    How about putting the hinge on the front upright part of the frame? Instead of opening with the door dropping down it will open to the front. What was the plan for securing the door in place once...

    How is the frame attached to the top longeron? Maybe some kind of double side tape or high tech bonding agent for attaching the hinge.

    Most of the stuff you say you will add will not help your takeoff. Extended gear should help. As should tall bushwheels with the correct pressure. VG.s, high tailwheels, etc may help landing but...

    If possible I would not drill into any fuselage tube to attach a hinge. You are begging for a water leak/rust/freeze crack if you do (especially in that location!!!!!). It looks like you have a...
