I'm using 82s as well. I had to elongate one slot slightly to get full throw without binding

same here.. slightly on both flap slots,just for no binding safety..I guess it`s how exact the blocks are glued in.

Heirmeistr...yes,looking for a stronger spring in the Nose Lg,maybe your friend have one over?...
I`m using these wheels in the Mains.

Tamjets also sells wing tip protectors , I don't think they are mandatory , it's all about the flare

We went to maiden last Saturday and the front gear retract stripped. So... We are ready again for this weekend. I just had a quick question.

When you guys measure elevator throws, are you measuring from the LE or TE?

Thanks!

The struts working awesome. Just landed and damper enough to take the bounce out. Today no wind and can landed really slow.

So did you have to make an effort to bounce it, or was it natural ?

It must be fun telling your wife you go to the field to "work"

In the manual it says to use the fuselage as reference , so measure where the elevator is closes to the fuselage at the front , it's about middle of the gray stripe on the fuselage. Hope this helps

Use a little up elevator mixed with flaps for landing and at least mid rates , very sluggish on low rates.

That is correct.
Mix up about 5/32" with full flaps.
If you had computer radio. With full flaps had the ailerons more sensitive mode.
It is very sluggish with full flaps.

Bouncing is natural for me....that why I'm the best demo pilot for undercarriage.
If the gear didn't poke throught wing when Tam land.
That must be good design. LOL....

You guys don't get jealous with my work.
Going flying is R&D and testing....Later I goto ask the IRS agent if I can write off the fuel and any crash to deduct my income.
Since she is audited me right now. So whom better to ask.

Yes I have done that for setting the angle of the stab, but what about for Throws? Did you take the high, med and low measurements at the leading edge or trailing edge.. its quite a bit of difference in throw.
