Default NEW V/S Modification

Good Mod. My RV7 will appreciate it. Always have wondered about the vilolent forces that slipping will apply to the verticle stabilizer.

The cracks others talk about are disturbing.

Your mod is just smart. I like your mention of RV's being great planes as is. The truth is that anything man made can be improved. Will be doing mod.

Thanks Allan

Looks pretty good. However I would use a drilling method that gets you perpendicular to the spar instead of at an angle.

Looks like a great idea, I'll be ordering this mod. Just from the amount of rudder pressure on takeoff, the fitting has to have a big load on it. Vibrations and buffeting from the prop wash and ground mishandling also lead to a possible failure point.

Default Question

You will note that the VANs instructions to install this bracket allows the builder to place the bracket in the back OR the front of the spar depending what fits best. Mine in fact is in the back where I believe it is not subjected to the point pressure that those mounted on the front experience. That said, will this new brace work irrespective of how your bracket is currently installed FRONT or BACK??

Thumbs up

Allan, what a great mod! Thanks for once again creating something that really makes sense for the RV community. I'm wondering if you might be doing these brackets for the RV-8 in the future? If so, I will be the first to purchase.

...I had not seen a 9 with the bracket on the back of the vertical spar but was aware that some may be mounted as such. The side loading is the same and the mod will offer the added strength just the same. We will make those up to order on request and it shouldn't be any problem. Thank you for the question as I am sure others will want this as well.
.
...As for the RV-8, I will look at them as soon as the sevens are finished and will post results here. Just think of the force against this bracket when you are knife edge, or doing a point roll. Anyone involved in any aerobatics really should consider this little modification. Thanks, Allan...

...Actually, the hole you see drilled from the front side in the video is a smaller pilot hole and the finish hole is drilled from the back side, straight in. Those particular holes in our brackets are also under size and get opened up when finished from the other side. I didn't put it in just to keep the video shorter and so I wouldn't need to move the camera. Perhaps I should have had that in there. Thanks, Allan...

Default stainless?

Allan,

I'm definitely interested in this product for my 7. If I recall correctly, your product is made of stainless steel. Any concerns with disimilar metals? Maybe we can just apply a piece of UHMW tape between the parts.

Thanks,

With this part installed, can the original part be inspected for cracks?
