Default PCM AV8R manual....???

Hi All,

Does anyone know if the PCM AV8R manual is available in electronic format? I tried to find it on the PCM site but didn't come up with anything []! I emailed Pat five days ago, but so far, no reply! I'd like to take a look at the manual before ordering the kit!

Thanks,

John

Hi John:
If you will e-mail your address, I will send you the assembly instruction and operations manual.
I built one of these a couple of years ago, and powered it with a PST J600 turbine.
A good flier, but I sold it last year, as I also have some other turbines.
The only changes that I made to the kit were substituting a 1/4 in aircraft main spar and leading edge spar for the 1/8 in spars in the kit, and putting a 3 oz carbon fiber patch over the spar between the foam and sheeting.
Probably not necessary, but for the slight additional weight, I wanted to do it.
Nice looking Bonanza.
I am a pilot also

One of the best manuals written! The construction photos on Pat's site give a great idea how it is built...

I was hoping you could let me also get a copy of the manual as I just purchased a used av8r and lost for spec's. I would appreciate that. Mike

Dennis,

DO you have the rest of the manual and drawings? Sure would like to confirm a few things before my test flight.

All I have left in the way of drawings is a jpg of the rear. I also have some notes on the AV8R that were written by Dean Wichman. If these are of any use, PM your e-mail address.
