More importantly, will it work with the JD Airparts tailwheel yoke? My guess is no, not without some modifications.

I think the question is will the JD Air fork fit in the pant.
Right for the top hole ! I've not yet checked the fairing with the JD setup.

The top hole fairing just needs to be enlarged to accommodate the bearing at the base of the JD Air Parts yoke. But I've not yet verified the JD fork.

Default Tail Wheel Fairing UPDATE

Hi everyone,

yesterday I finished the tests of the fairing and from now the company is ready to ship it.

First of all, I checked the first pre-production (X) - great in shape but a little too light. Strong but with vibration (0.22 lbs/100gr.)

I added some American Tape and vibration disappear.

Here the videos

Takeoff : https://youtu.be/JNRstSSjuxo

Gs and Vne : https://youtu.be/tUjjSdDzmeI

landing: https://youtu.be/G41yInZ0z6A

Then we added more layer to increase the weight and after some prototypes and flights, the right one is #2 wit a final weight of 0.35 lbs/158gr.).

I watched the videos and it sure seemed like the tailwheel fairing did very well with the loop and the landing. Do you think adding a tailwheel fairing to my RV-3 will improve my loops and landings, too?

If so, I?ll take 2!
