Delta Pop Red Tail Com Blank Off
 
a little blank off cover for a com antenna. if it's on the belly and if you drill a hole in the recessed area, it could be a drain.

With 200 pages, its going to take me quite a while to fully catch up on the "couple" or printed ideas. Is there a collection of cad files hosted somewhere where I should get started?

I just received the beginner training kit from Van's, ordering tools, and just starting to get the basement/garage shop unpacked & set up from the move.

I imagine there are things I could print instead of buy like die holder blocks while I get ready for the empennage kit. Any suggestions?

I don't supply cad files but I do show the basic geometry so you can copy them and make your own. give a man a fish and you feed him for a day.... teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.

200 page Thread of Legend
 
I can't think of many pursuits more rewarding than perusing all 200 pages of this epic thread while one waits for his kits to arrive.

printed headsets?
 
I thought I would give it a try. new approach in its infancy.

A local pilot near me is heading down that path... He's just made his first earcup prototypes and is working on the headband and other parts. He's going to use the Headsets Inc. inserts for ANR.

I use David Clark with ear plug speakers because I'm cheap, but what I would like is a good set of ANR for less than $300 and I would like to choose the ear size and the headset color.

Big blue inlet air dams
 
I cruised to Muncie Indiana for a transponder 24 month check and recorded some temps. my oil cooler is 50% blocked with tape.

oh, I saw a tapered wing RV with folding gear, but I was already in the cockpit and could not talk to the owner, and another yellow RV6. it was RVs and TBMs today.

14A Tow Bar Brackets first time in Red
 
the color for these is nice. they should add some flare to the baggage area. the color should go well with the Bogi-Bar.

upgraded to stainless screws
 
upgraded to stainless screws for the sportif Winter look. actually, AN hardware is stronger, but these look better and I don't need AN strength for these. going for the fashion statement!
