i guess you will need 3, 3.5, 4 and 5mm to cover most planes. I don't know what extreme flight use though, they are popular so need to factor them in.

cheers

Thanks, John

You may have to click on parts for the Taylorcraft.
Pins and keepers still allow for play and vibration. I'm talking rigid.Like a bolt and nut rigid. Found some I liked from a specialty company but too big for our app.

Here is what I did. Very sturdy. The rubber washer soaks up any vibration. Closest I could get to nut and bolt.

That looks pretty good. I just like a good physical connection to get that warm fuzzy feeling.

I hear ya. It took me a while to get these just right to where I trusted them. I used pins from the Local Hardware store and heavy duty clips. It is a tight fit when they are installed. I have to squish it all pretty good to get the clip on the pin.

Yep. I stand by my original statement. "Lazy mans device".
Haters gotta hate. And insecure people must do there best to impress the person next to them.

For me it's not the effort i'm trying to avoid. The less time I spend assembling the plane the faster I get in the air and the faster I tear it down and back to the family.

I am. I hate screwing in all the wing bolts in areas that I can't even fit my hands. I always come out leaving pints of blood all over my airplane.

Fella's you have to understand where vmceachern is coming from.
He loves his Bipes and all the field assembly that comes with them.

Having to field assemble a bipe with all those flying wires, cabanes, etc etc takes time.
A couple more minutes to screw in wing bolts won't really matter to him.

Not to mention the crowd it draws as people watch him put it together.

Thanks. Close. How much time do you see people flopped on their butt why spending a day at the field. Gives you time to preflight properly. Get in a hurry or start talking to someone during assy and you will pay the price when you miss something.
I like the product and I'm sure it will be used with great success. I'm just not lazy in the least.

Carry on.
