    AUTO PIlot

    Dynon Auto I have had a dynon system running in my J170 for the last 6 months. Mine is jabiru factory approved which required engineering drawings and qualified installer. This cost a bit more but is worth it when it comes to resale / legalities / insurance etc. Very happy with the dynon unit which is driven by a D10A and liked to the garmin 296. Talk to Jabiru about it first, they were most helpful working out what i needed to do.
  2. D10a I bought mine direct from Dynon in the US, delivered in less than a week. Great people to deal with and great service. I have it in my J170 and it is driving a dynon single axis autopilot that has been approved by Jabiru. All works a treat. Paul

    Thanks Ducky. I have cut all my short ribs - made up a jig and it worked a treat. Just about to glue my first capstrip together! It will be good to have one assembled part (have a look at my website). My glue arrived today. It is good that I will be able to get it locally. Regards, Paul

    Thanks Ducky. I have ordered a couple of 50ml tubes through my local suppler, $33 each delivered so that will be ok if he comes through. It was meant to be here today but now they are saying Monday. One final silly question (at least for today), what solvent did you use? The one in the manual (Eposolv 70 I think) or plain old MEK solvent? Cheers, Paul

    Hey Mark, How are you going sourcing the DP190 Glue? I am having some trouble out here in the sticks. The sydney number in the build manual gives the engaged signal all the time? What size are you buying? I can get some through a local supplier but have to by a box of 12 x 200ml as it is a special order for them - not sure if that will be too much or not enough? I have also set up a website where I will be posting my progress - check it out at aeropup.blogspot.com Paul

    Cutting Ribs behind rear spar A question. How close do you cut the rib behind the rear spar. The drawing states 1.19" back from the center of the read spar which is flush. Has anyone got any pick of what they have done? Paul

    Wing frame Got down to some serious work on the weekend and built the wing frames. Felt good to make a start. Paul:)

    Well Done. Keep in touch as you go into the test flying - very interested to see how it performs - I am going for the jab 4 cyl as well. I had alot of discussions with John C when I picked up my wing kit about weight and balance with the jab motor being so light. Did you go with the 1 deg. swept back wing? We also discussed the possibility of putting a spacer behind the eng mount to try and get the weight forward? Interested to see how you go. Paul

    I think I will go as per the manual with a epoxy varnish of some kind. Will not do the areas that will contact the fabric at this stage. Paul

    Mark, It was a Saturday arvo when I was there so it was pretty quiet except for john and myself packing the wing kit in the car / trailer. The factory is quite unassuming and off the main drag. Had a look at the various jigs. I think in my last message I noted that there are 3 fuses under construction. They look good. Looking forward to getting the other part of the kit next year. There is a packing list for the wing kit so catch up with john to see if you can get a copy. There were a few small parts in my wing kit that were not on hand at the factory and are now on back order. Getting my shed organised before I make a start on my wings. Will probably start with the capping on the ribs. Paul

    Wing Kit I have just spent the last 2 days in the car to pick up a wing kit. 1200 km round trip from my place. I will give me some thing to start on as the rest of my kit is still a way off. Plenty of activity at the factory. 3 Fuses on the go and some other wing kits packed up just about ready to freight out. Let the fun begin....;) Paul
