    Zor,
    On my Seniorita the gap is much less than it appears in the photo, 3/32" actually. The hinge point was carefully positioned to close the gap with down deflection and open it with up deflection....

    Zor,
    I had a similar problem with my Seniorita's ailerons.Take a look at the photos in post #1101 of this thread and you will see my rather unrefined solution. Mechanically they work fine but I...

    I never looked to see what was called for on the plans, I've just always added a little washout to just about every wing I've ever built. Weather or not it helped is debatable, but it certainly never...

    Guys, we're all in this together and not here to judge, so let's be honest with each other and stop referring to what we do as a sport, a hobby, or a past time. There is nothing shameful about...

    By the way, It's looking good! I like the 'bumped' nose. Adds some curved to an otherwise boxy airplane. Looks like a Cessna 206 or 207 front end.

    Very nice and stylish horn! And, no. I don't really have any experience with this kind of flaperon on a model. How ever, I did rebuild a big many years ago, Avid Flyer serial number 2, that had...

    How much 'slop' are you talking about? More than 10% of the flaperon chord when measured at the trailing edge? I had similar worries about the friese ailerons and flaps on my Seniorita, but then I...

    Um, yeah. I think more than a few of us would be willing to give unreasonable things that we probably shouldn't live without for that logo. It's not like Glenn and Hazel had a personal hangar...

    It's been quiet in here for way to long, allowing me to get some work done in the airplane room. After a shamefully long time I finally got flaps and ailerons installed on the Seniorita this...

    Really? I love my .65 Sportster. Yes, it's not a screaming power house, but simple and reliable. It's out lived many planes, including a Kadet SR, and always ran well.

    And that doesn't make me miss my dogs at all. Ducks are much better pets any way. No chewing, no scratching, no shedding, no barking, no getting in the trash.:p

    Something learned from owning and flying full-sized airplanes, "There is no such thing as to much power....... until you are paying for the gas."
    I have never been able to argue with that.
