  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

  5. Hi 2tonne Do you still have the 6" tyres? Please text me on 0408261314 Cheers 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!

  10. Hi I have a set in the hangar at Cessnock. I just replaced them with a new set from Coastal Aviation. Call me on 0408 261 314 Cheers Ron
  11. 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
  12. Hi all Having recently bought a 701 and I am pretty close to fully restoring it, I am looking at installing the 12 VGs that were supplied to the previous owner from Zenit, but never fitted.. I have looked at the pages showing the location for installation.One of the photos shows the VGs neatly stacked with a tag on them stating 12. The clip-seal bag they came in says 16 but only 12 in the bag. Other photos show considerably more than 12 on the curved underside of the stabilator. Anyhow, I could not find anywhere that gave the spacings between them. I have taped them on at 6" intervals p
  13. Thanks Marty Hopefully there are some slats out there! Cheers Ron
  14. Thanks Marty. So, if there are Savannah slats out there, I would be equally pleased to know. I am doing this restoration with the help of 2 good friends. The colour scheme is predominantly a cub yellow with the ailerons, rudder and elevator being an emerald green. Ah, the spinner will also be green. It took all of my school holidays to pull it apart and strip it completely. The engine and mount was removed to paint the firewall and a new bungee shock cord was fitted before re installing the Rotax. The fuselage is now in colour, as is the fin/rudder. The current heatwave conditions hav
  15. Hi I am new to this site, having just purchased a CH701 and hangared it at Cessnock, NSW, Australia. I have stripped it back to bare metal and have now started to put on the new colour. I am looking for a new set of slats for this bird and realise that several owners have removed the slats and installed VGs but I want to keep my slats for the time being. Mine were damaged while transporting the plane from the NT on a trailer and I am looking for a good set. So, if anyone in the eastern states has a set at a reasonable price I will be interested in talking to you. Cheers Ron
