Wow nice job looks great ,,, check your wings and add glue at the root to make sure it stays together...

Cirrus wing bags for sale and robart nose gear

In case is interested I had a double wing bag made for my cirrus plane .

From Ace wing carriers. They are barely used . I paid with shipping 165.00. That includes the elev covers and the rudder cover also.

I also have a nose gear made custom from a robart that was new 182.00
I then cut it down 2" and tig welded the outside casing . Internal spring cut down also 2" . It worked great . A aluminum flat stock piece of 1/8 " thick plate is all that is needed to connect at the lower part of nose gear and attach to lower cowl bolts underneath to keep it secure . Easy 20 min job with right tools. The upper part of th nose gear screws on to the existing nose gear bracket bolts ..use the inner drilled holes to match up and attach . Attach your steering linkage rod to the metal top tiller steering bracket and your ready to go .

I have over 150.00 in making this piece. After the purchase.. Now all the hard work has been done. All you need to do is lower bracket and fit wheel pants to it and your finished. . Asking 75.00 . Now.

So...

I finally took the Fuse from the box of the SR22 and noticed something loose inside. It was one of the door holders on the right door. It had broken off of the door. I sent a picture to Horizon and asked for a new door. Sure I could epoxy it back one but that is not the point.! We'll see what happens!

Maybe they did you a favor. Fiberglass on fiberglass is bad news...when dealing with gas engines at least! Remove all 3 on each door and make wooden latches instead...or at least put wood on both sides of the current fiberglass holders to help with vibration.

Silverfly,
You might even think about running another tube inside the original wing tube, or at least a small section at the moment/bend area. Additionally you could run a strip of carbon fiber on the upper/lower wing surface. Build a block reinforcement for the fuse and things should be pretty stout.

SR22 Firewall

So, I drilled the firewall to mount the engine, found top right hole had a gap between the fiberglass & bulkhead of about .125". Guess they still have issues with that assembly line...

Hello,
You mentioned 1/4" plugs for your Twin 40. Can you tell me a part number? The CM6's I have are alittle too big with the DLE 40 twin. Is there a smaller version of the plugs?

I bought the TruTurn version...and had to cut it for the bigger prop. I would just buy the one that Horizon sells for it. Cheaper and ready to rock as it also comes with a spacer for those of us who have the evolution 33gx engine. Why the engineers decided to use US instead of metric for the shaft size just defies logic...given everything else is metric!!!!

Saito fg57t

Hey guys what do you think. Saito would suit? Engine width is 240mm and weighs more than 2 kg

I custom ordered a tru-turn spinner specifically for the Beila 18x10 3 blade prop I'm using. Looks great but was a little pricey.

On the 1/4" plug question, my VV40 twin is machined for 1/4" plugs so I don't think you can retro fit an engine machined for CM6 plugs unless there is some kind of adapter available.

240mm is about 9.5 inches, my VV40 is only 8.5 " from plug to plug, I have about an inch clearance on the starboard side but only about a half inch clearance on the port side so the Saito 57 would probably fit but you would likely have to cut the cowl on the port side. From a weight perspective you will definitely need to add some tail weight.
The biggest obstacle to the 57 is the prop, 18" is cutting close for prop clearance, I believe the 57 needs a larger prop.
