BackcountryAeropup

Aeropup project

Recommended Posts

Apart from a bit of cleaning since the aeropup has settled in her new home I have swap the tyres from the 15's to the good old turf glide 18.5's. ultimately I would like to put a set of Aeroclassic 22'' tyres on but the money will be best spent else where. I will get her in the air first.

Another change I made straight up was when I got the pup it hade a flat back tyre so I sourced a solid electric wheel chair tyre to replace it and eliminate that problem.

At last! a new aircraft owner with a modicum of good sense.

 

Keep thinking like that!

Due to a non air worthy style modification to my control stick I decided to remake a new one with a modification of my own. I thought it would be better fabricating a zenith style stick for more comfortable control and a lot better for duel control when needed.

I spent the last couple of months taking off parts getting them sand blasted and powder coated again. I took out the old floor for replacement.

I got the parts back from powder coaters and made a new floor board. This week I splashed a bit of paint on it and this time I stuck some marine carpet down. When I got it the floor was unpainted and weathered a bit. I spent a good part of today putting it back together and this is how it turned out.
