Re: CT Electric flap

Attachment upload does not seem to be working. I'll try and send you a message with the drawing. If that does not work send me a message with your email address and I'll send you the pdf. I scanned the section on the flaps. This is from the old manual that uses the teflon bearings but you can get th...

Re: CT Electric flap

Do you have all the hardware? You should have inboard and outboard tubes for both sides and a center section tube with a arm for connection to the flap motor. I think you could also retrofit the 2000 model set up in a CT wing but I have not tried. I got my flap parts from Larry Olsen. There are the ...

Re: Grove landing gear docs?

I got my gear brackets from Larry Olsen. I'll look and see what documents I have but I think you can use the 2000 docs on installing the gear. I realize the wing is different but I think the gear attach is the same. You might also try the wayback machine on the net or look for messages in the old fo...

Trim Tabs

Finishing some wing issues and got to thinking about the trim issues. I'm putting in a G3X with autopilot so I'm not too concerned about aileron trim as I'm a big fan of letting the autopilot fly XC while I look out the window. In my view the AP would take care of the aileron trim in level flight. I...

Re: Steel Landing Gear

For what it's worth I think you can still get the Aluminium gear from Grove. I got mine directly from them. I dont recall who I talked with there or if it was by email. I have not installed the gear and I have the attach fittings from Larry. If you need me to measure them or take pictures I can. I s...

Mockup with rigid insulation foam

I needed to do a couple of mock ups of some parts for a console and found that the 1/2 rigid foam insulation board you can get at Home Depot or Lowes works very well. It's not as messy as styrofoam. HD here were I live sells the 1/2 4x8 sheets for about 10 bucks. Easy to cut with a utility knife and...

Re: linear actuator for flaps

Reinhard, Welcome to the new forum. Glad to have you here. Notice from the pictures on the web site you swapped out your panel with some new Gramin and GRT gear. How do you like the new setup? How many hours on the plane now? Also, any other pictures or guidance you could share on the flap installat...

Re: Registration and bill of sale

EAA had their trailer at south by southwest this weekend in Austin. I asked them and they did not know the answer but said they would find out and get back to me. Asking for a bill of sale on a bunch of kit parts is beyond me and makes no sense. I think someone in a cube in OK city needed to justify...
