Hey gabe, I went ahead and converted with stuff I built after a kind VAFír sent me the page from the plans that detailed the manual flap setup.
I had several people tell me they were interested in the elec. setup, but no one actually pulled the trigger after I pmíd them.
No clue what itís worth; Iíve never had the issues with the motor that some have had, but I do believe it to be original (plane first flew in 1994).
Motor, sheet metal ďcoverĒcovered in vinyl, and part I cut off for actuator attachment...
Iím in Ecuador again until the 3rd of Abril, but feel free to shoot me a pm and let me know what itís worth to ya. I donít believe the sheet metal pieces will fit in a usps large flat rate box, but Iíd be happy to try.
