JP,

I use Gorilla Glue because it's lighter.

I cut my sheeting 1/4" larger all the way around the wing, put the GG down on the skins and scrape as much off as I can get with a credit card. Put...

Tom,

I've been running that combo for a couple years now with a 11x7 APC. You have to have a smaller pipe to make sure it keeps high enough RPMs to get on the pipe so you're good with the 11x6...

That's looking nice Pete.
I think David is referring to the square plate under the canopy as the pipe mounting block.

Time to dig this thread out of the closet!
