Default Emergency procedures

Haha, I can see the resemblance... But doubt bullets will come out of mine

Fredrik I guess it's just to keep keeping on with the Kitfox, finally it happens

Magnus I still have assembly, documentation and completion of hangar to do so I guess Falk?ping will be tight. Been following your progress and not envious with the proseal sessions, but it looks really good.

Not much done on the RV lately, waiting for painting of wings etc. But went to Uppsala/Sundbro, H?tuna and SK? for EAA emergency procedures program and tail dragger diff training. Time and money well spent, thanks to Patrik Sj?berg at avautbildning.se and I really enjoyed getting acquainted with the french wooden wonder Mudry CAP10C.

Default Hangar finished and more...

Hangar floor rubber rolled in Swedish april weather:


It turned out pretty ok I think



Made some modest progress on the RV as well, rudder is now back at painter after marking of stripe position.


A/P servos and strobe on fin top connected, ELT installed.



Prop and spinner in place, blade angle 22 degrees. We'll see what static and performace it might give?!?

Default Good enough...

Thanks Steve, I used to live in the southern province myself. Nice part of the country

Tied the electrical and DYNON system up today to an hopefully acceptable standard. Please advice if you see something out of the ordinary.





Loose red/green wires are for tank level and will be sorted when wings are on.

looks good! I am not an expert on the RV4 but I did see a possible edge contact here.

Default firewall passthrough

Thanks for the heads up Steve, firewall passthroughs will be filled with high temp RTV and then clamped on the engine side. This will straighten the cables/MAP-hose out a bit and the radious of the hole is quite smooth so I think it will be ok. I'll put up some pics from the engine side when finished with passthroughs, plan is to wait to see if everything is working as intended before filling the passthroughs.

Default Major happening on the island of Gotland...

Wings are on, hopefully for the last time. Spars greased up they went in quite easily, next is to secure all of them spar bolts



Kind of unreal having done this building milestone, but it feels good



Now time for a building pause for the weekend, but will be some flying with the kids in the PA-22 that I recently cheched out on.
