  1. Hi In the CA21T skyfox what was the dimension(s) of the tail (Early Ones)? I believe the Later ones were bigger as in the CA25N aircraft. I did have your phone number but have lost it. Thanks Ron

  6. Yes it is a Skyfox Gazelle and at 2-30 in the morning, that explains the bleary eyes. How many hours have you done in it? I have only had mine for 5 months and have only done 15 hours since I got it. Just completed my BFR in it a couple of weeks ago.Cheers Ron
  7. Hi Debra your plane looks a tad like mine. Cheers Ron
  8. I had a Sander Veenstra (SV11, pusher prop) and had the same problem. The handle and cord got sucked into prop with the same result. A big bang and I looked to the side watching the tips of the prop drop into the paddock below. The engine was switched off almost before the bang and I had to land in the paddock below which was home to a rather ugly looking bull. Only damage doe was the prop and pull start handle. The prop now hangs on the wall!

  13. Depending on the glue used in the construction, Resorcinol was commonly used in the 60's and 70's but its life could be somewhat suspect after 40+ years. I recently considered buying a Piel Emeraude (often called an Emerald, but incorrectly named), but it was also built in the 70's and a very experienced plane builder suggested that glue was probably getting to the end of its useful life. The one I flew performed very nicely. I hope it can be repaired and flying again
