Thanks...good to hear it is holding up. I guess if a person was real worried they could remove the covering and sheet the stabs. But if it is holding up at 100-130MPH...it must be pretty strong. Wire bracing would work as well..but be ugly and draggy...but would sound cool in the air!

Nice job! Not too shabby I'd say!

I knew you were going to ask. Still nothing. I am devoted to get this A-26 up. Hopefully done within 1.5 months.

Good news though, the new cowl came in this week, original one had been a slimer, so it had a massive hole in it. It has been on back order for months.

You can actually see my Sundowner hanging on the wall behind the A-26:

It holds up at 140 also. The wing is the weak link. There's enough washout in it that it starts to twist at speed. I think if you tried to get it over 150 it would flutter and rip off.
