    RE: New Krill Spark Evo I- Build Thread.....

    Dave, that a great way to rear mount the motor. Did it add much weight doing it that way. I have Himax 210 that needs a home, may have to borrow that way of mounting it to the Evo1. now if I can get Todd Schmidt to finish my Mystic for me I should be all set for next year

    RE: New Krill Spark Evo I- Build Thread.....

    The mounting is slightly more than a firewall only, the carbon plate can be reduced from what's shown to an X shape and the 1/4" lite ply can be reduced also to save some weight.

    Robert if you take a look at Ron's Impact that I sold him and Dave built it uses that system. Mike

    RE: New Krill Spark Evo I- Build Thread.....

    I was asked in a pm for the firewall template but cannot find it, but here are several pictures of how I make formers and a PDF of the carbon plate. I used two layers of 1/16" carbon plate epoxied together to make the X plate that mounts to the motor and firewall. The temporary formers are glued together from small pieces of 1/8" or 1/16" balsa, after the general shape is made this can be traced to make a slightly oversized former that should fit with some sanding. I hope this helps.

    RE: New Krill Spark Evo I- Build Thread.....

    Just finished the firewall CAD drawing and CNC cut for the firewall in my Spark Evo. I am using a Himax 6330-210 (same firewall dimensions as Pletty 30-10). The nose ring is large enough for the motor to slide in from the front. Firewall is 1/8" end grain balsa/carbon laminate. See pix below.

    My firewall is set to add about a degree of right thrust and half degree of downthrust. My Evo has no right or down in the nose ring relative to the wing/steb setup.

    Here is a file (dxf) for the Evo firewall. You will need to rename it from .txt to .dxf after you down load it. It is drawn slightly oversize on the outside dimensions to allow final fit/taper, etc.

    Todd, I want you to fly as much as possible right now. You can work on the bird when the weather gets cold. See you in Fort Scott

    Does the Spark come with the incidence set? if not are you using the canopy area to zero?

    thanks,

    RE: New Krill Spark Evo I- Build Thread.....

    On the Spark Dynamic there are dimples on the fuse side to mark the wing zero point. I assume the EVO has the same thing. The stab and motor can be referenced from this point.

    Regards,
    Jason.

    RE: New Krill Spark Evo I- Build Thread.....


    ORIGINAL: Aussie_Knife_Edge

    There has been limited talk about the new Spark EVO and how it performs compared to the Spark Dynamic.

    So, what's the verdict?

    Is it better than the Spark Dynamic?

    Are there any weaknesses in the design or construction?

    Cheers,
    Jason.
    I still feel this question was not really answered. I am very much looking for this feedback. I found the Dynamic a great airplane with fantastic snaps and great flying. I am thinking about buying another one but the Evo is beautiful as well. However, it is the flying that is most important in the end. No plane is perfect of course so some honest feedback would be great.

    RE: New Krill Spark Evo I- Build Thread.....

    Quick question about the rudder horn location on the Spark Evo. All the pictures I see show the rudder horn about half way up the rudder. There is a half rib in that location but no block. There is a block in the bottom of the rudder which seems a strange place to put the horn, gets a little crowded down there with elevator linkage, tail wheel, etc.

    Those of you that have built the Evo, where did you put the rudder horns? If you put them near the center of the rudder vertically, did you add a block somehow?

    thanks
