Wing Fold Bracket

Postby planecrazzzy » Sat Oct 22, 2005 9:33 pm

I changed my aileron control to the "stock" position because it felt like I needed more "travel" ....I had to give the stick "full" right or left sometimes during my flight.....and the winds were only 5-10

My old wing "transport" bracket had to be changed.....I've had people interested in this department.....So here's the new version....

 Pictures are worth a thousand words....

Sometimes you just have to take the leap
and build your wings on the way down...

Another Transport brace

Postby planecrazzzy » Wed Jan 10, 2007 11:40 am

I use the brace on the leading edge tubes to keep them from flopping around during transport.....

Another brace I use is to keep my ailerons secure...... I tried to "TUCK" the ailerons like the prints say...

But parts touch too much , and with the motion of transporting....it just gives it "Hanger Rash"

So my Brace holds the Ailerons Vertical...

I put a bungie cord on it , to the tailwheel to keep the brace in place...

Here's some pictures...
