skeptic36 Posted June 10, 2008 Share Posted June 10, 2008 Hi all, Sunday morning didn't start well, 5am start, drove the 220+ kms to the airfield where I am doing my training, 8am get the wing out and with the cfi holding my hand I start assembling it. All goes well until I put the hang-bolt in and tried to push the base back over the contol bar, a bit of resistance as the front wheel mounts the bar so push a little harder with no result. The cfi steps in at this point to investigate why it won't go any further, after a while he notices the plastic stopper on the back of the pylon has been rotated 180 degrees and is contacting the keel tube this has put a small dent in the tube consequently my recently aquired trike is grounded until a new keel tube is found. How the that stopper got turned around is beyond me given it takes a major effort to rotate it one handed and it couldn't have been like that when it was packed up. Anyway there is nothing to be gained worrying about that, so my next problem is to tarck down a new keel tube for a pegasus Q2 wing so if anybody knows of a new or second hand one available that would save me ordering one from England I would appreciate it.
