I have a New Zealand Question. Due to the non response from an Aussie Importer, I want to know if anyone in New Zealand sells aircraft grade ply in 1.2mm thickness suitable for forming the leading edge of the Jodel. I can get it from England BUT the freight proves critical.If you can refer me to someone I will be very grateful.
I fitted the tailplane and set up the trim push wire as you suggested. Perfect. The trim tab crank has two holes to attach to the tab. One hole is round and the other oval which allows about 5 degrees of float. Do you know why it is given that "float"?
The thoughts about the fuel tanks are most welcome. As you are NZ based I have a query about ply supplies. I am a little short of 1.2mm Mahogany Oy. We have an Aussie rep for the manufacturer (based in Finland) but they repeatedly fail to reply to my enquiries. I could get it from England or maybe somewhere in Asia but NZ is much closer from a freight perspective.
I am very grateful for that insight on the Jodel D18 trim tab. Now, if I may here is a second question. In my plans nothing is shown about the pilots seat or the precise position of the rudder bars. I am not all that big. (1.7m tall and 65kg) Have you any pictures which show seating arrangements?
