Does this mean a worldwide recall on centre panels?

Somebody need to teach these guys how to do a PROPER stress test - as this sure isn't a good example. It's no wonder the first batch are breaking.

Does this also mean you have to install a chair in the fuse that the entire wing root can rest on?

Rossco, you might want to check with your local distributor.

The guy on the right seems just a bit too happy to have the guy on the left's hand on his knee.

Not that there's anything wrong with that.

No matter how they did the test the wing panel is stronger......what would seem by a lot. I also think Steve is right....these guys are "friends"

Yip, it is a pitty the didn't ankor the joiners and cantilever the wing with some uniform loading. It would have been a lot more representative. Looks like an improvement in the area tested though, hopefully that translates to a better strength everywhere.

Try this one:
http://cvrcclubvideos.us/HDVids/DanTom.wmv

If that still doesn't work visit the club's video page at http://www.cvrcclubvideos.com/2.html

It's a wmv file so it won't work with all players.


That is what once was my K8. Sold it to Tom and he put it together faster than I could have ever imagined. He is planning to fly it at the Jackie Cochran air show in 10 days: http://www.jacquelinecochranairshow.org/
