Sorry. No choice. Money isn't there yet for my Whirlwind 300RV.
I have to try or add time to the end when I really want to be flyjng.
I do have an incredibly accurate cowl jig with a hub duplicate and using Whirlwind CAD drawing. I'm shooting for a bit more space because it's a three blade. If I mess up, it won't be the first, or last time.
Fingers Crossed.
