Default Nose gear stop

I think your nose gear stop bracket is installed backwards. There's a service bulletin about that.

Gents, A quick update.

Firewall Forward is 95% Complete.

Weve been waiting on a 3 Screen G3X System. They wont be available for a few more weeks its seems. Initail panel work should begin in the next 2 weeks Id say.

Cowling work is being adjusted to give a scosh more clearance from componants. We want it to be right the first time so taking the time to make that happen.

Its coming along. Steadily working.

Attached is a pic of what the final product has been planned to kinda look like. Its just rendering from my X-Panel Software. The round instrument by the throttle is the Electric prop controller..I just put something there the same size for now. Remember this is a FADEC Controlled Engine so no mixture.

Any Suggestion based on what you see here for the panel would be received and accepted well!

Tango

Default Extended cowling

Saw your earlier discussion on extending the cowling. I have an RV-8A with a cowling extended by 20 cm. and a ULP 5100 180 HP engine installed and flying since 2013. Compared to the RV-6 my plane is more stable in the sense that it does not "fish tail". I have a fixed pitch prop, which is not optimal. Any experience og others would be of interest.

There is an interesting blog on someone's experience with the UL. I don't have any skin in the game yet, but am hoping the UL will be a viable option for many models!

Nate has made posts here on VAF and HBA before about his UL experiences if you search.
