Yes when the firewall broke I used epoxy to glue it back together with a homemade clamp and when it dried I cut a CD with the all the holes and stuff and glued that on. It has been holding since (4-5 months?).
It works good!

Excellent idea. I would have never thought of that.

Its not that the firewall is a weak part of the plane but if it break yous SOL. Every once in a while everybody will come in for a hard landing, its a fact the everyone knows and embraces. The point is that if you reinforce the firewall when that time comes and the radian impersonates a lawn dart the firewall wont break.

Anything under 10 minutes would be a quick flight on a Radian. Then you power up, climb out and do it again!

A little chilly here this morning but had to get a flight in. Dead calm and beautiful sunrise. I attached my new GoPro HeroHD to the leading edge about 6 inches from the root at a slight down angle. One flight video, one flight 5 second interval 5mp stills. One pic raw and one pic is cropped to remove the nose and prop. Flew great. Can't wait until more warm temps and calm winds.
