Default hey, it's time to move

Here I am, after five years, a lot of posts and a lot of new friends :



No more space into my shop, next week I'll move to the airport, my DAR is expected for middle april (this year)

Will I fall in a "empty shop syndrome" ? Stay tuned

Wow, looking good. I was in firenze (Florence) 15 months ago. I considered geting in touch with you but family got first billing.
I'm back in Venice for two days this June (more vacation). Too bad I'm on a time table now too. I would love to see your project! keep up the hard work.
I see you're painted....nice.
Regards

Some stuff is boring, some stuff is hard, and some is pure fun. I admit I find wiring to be in the fun category, and I'm full-tilt into it now.

This a custom trim relay pack. It allows the Trio autotrim pitch servo to control the MAC servo, or allows trim control from either pilot position. It gives gross control with the usual hat switch or buttons, or fine (slow) control via the Trio knob with the autopilot powered but not engaged, or full auto control with AP engaged. Bringing everything to a terminal strip makes it modular and easy to hook up. Nothing real special, should be lots of similar setups out there.

Default VS Done

Rich,
Nice looking work on the VS. I'm just glad to see that you keep the Bud Light nearby. That must be the reason for the high quality work!

Default Hey Stan

Yes I am, I really enjoyed your presentation at the Jan. Chapter dinner. I have seen Pic's of your 8. What a beautifull aircraft. I am co-chairing the Volunteer Kitchen this year with Pete and taking it over next year. Stop by and see us at sun-n-fun I'll save you a sandwich...LOL

Hope to see you there

Rich Denton

Default Flighline Interior Seats

My new seats from Flighline Interior just arrived. The quality of the seats is outstanding. The attention and service from Fightline was super. I mailed Flighline cardboard templates which they used to create the finished interior panels. Without any hesitation, I would recommend Flightline interiors for any RV project.





A slideshow of the seats and interior can be found here

Very nice Mike! What is the little black tab attached to the left canopy roller just below the latch?

Ken

Default Canopy latch

Thanks Ken.

The little black tab is Mike Zeller's canopy latch. A very simple latch that allows you to easily slide and lock the canopy, mid-way.

More info and pictures of the latch can be found on this thread: http://www.vansairforce.com/communit...ead.php?t=7745
