It was to check both areas so the data could be given to Kevin Walker of Aerotech for engineering evaluation and updates.

Bob your threads are another place for some sanity.

YOU are not a plane builder/designer/modifier.

You are an Arteest ! HAH ! Did my phonetic spelling come through ?

I cannot get over that you "eyeball" this stuff. The snow storms. Jeez Man you got it.

I know exactly where I am gonna go when I have that "one off" part made.

I actually like a little longer canopy, but after reviewing the Wagstaff 260, it is rather short, So...

This is my Express 20 toy hauler, as you can see, with the engine, prop, and spinner installed, there is plenty of room left over.
