    Stringer question

    Nice standoff. Heck, maybe that's the right way and what I said is wrong. Not sure, to tell you the truth. On the bolts for the carry-thru, I can't find any photos of mine and can't remember (of course) how I did it. In your picture, you have bushings at those holes and the bushings interfere...

    Stringer question

    The stringers lie against the fuse. I used anti-chafing tape at the points of contact. Not sure about your second question. Ed

    A typical flight in my 2LS starts around 9.9 inches and moves aft an inch or inch and a half as the fuel burns. Racers or aerobats might prefer something different but this range works for me. Mytonic will be ok at 9.3. Ed

    Hi Matt, 74 hours spread over four years on the 2276. My first engine was a 2180 with 042 heads and all four cracked between the valves. Since I went to the smaller valves, no problems. They do love to be lapped, though. Nice video! Ed

    Clear winter day over Darrington, WA

    Nice picture! And your wingtip is in it to prove it's not a postcard! :) I must say, I have faith in my VW but I don't think I'd fly over terrain like that. Even Pennsylvania forests make me hear funny noises. Ed

    Congratulations, Chucker! You'll like it even better solo. What prop is your Revmaster turning? Ed

    Hi Gary, Your web page says it was last updated in 2009. Are you still working on the plane or flying it? Ed

    I made what I called an offset dimpler from a couple of pieces of scrap steel and used it with a pneumatic gun. It worked so well that I even wrote an article about it for one of Fred's newsletters. I wouldn't say it's any better than your idea, just another way to skin the cat. Ed

    SoneraiWorks Announcement

    Thanks for all you've done to support the brand, Fred, and congratulations on your third retirement. John Monnett taking his baby back sounds like a good thing, given the visibility of the Sonex name. Maybe more people will be drawn to the Sonerai, which would be nice. Ed

    Converting Military Helmet

    Don't know for sure but I took it to be a capacitor. Ed

    Converting Military Helmet

    Finding my old files was easier than I thought but I may have oversold my "wiring diagram." All I can find is these two things but I'll keep looking. The SoftComm was the donor headset for the parts. My eureka moment came when I realized that the PTT switch must be DPST. Ed

    Converting Military Helmet

    Hi Chucker, I wired my own DIY headset from scrounged commercial (not military) parts. If you think it would help I'll look for my wiring diagram and send it to you. There's been a change of computers however it might take me a day or two to find it. Ed
