I have everything back together now. I am just finishing the epoxy for the front bulkhead. I made a pin out of an old wire strut. I think it is hardened...should work. My plan is to get it back in the air tomorrow morning. I am planning on modifying the Tam brakes and getting them on tonight. I think I will try the 20% airbrake with the aileron droop and see how that works out. Should give me more lift at slower speed. I may set the wheel brakes to come on and 100% air brake at the same time for right after touchdown. I think I just need more time on the sticks with it. I have about 10 flights on it and although was too hot on some of the landings and ran off the end of the runway, I always got it down without broken parts. The soybeans are getting big though....running off the end now will be messy!

Thanks for all the tips guys..I will post more on my next flight.
