|This shows the pulse pump mounted so that the hole in the elbow is on the bottom. It also shows the solenoid that operates the primer when the facet pump is turned on. The solenoid is activated by a momentary switch on the instrument panel. I have the choke system installed but have never used it.
|This shows a storage area beneath the engine. The sliding door is actually on the wrong side as I have to be careful when opening when the muffler is hot. It would have been much better to open on the other side. The storage area has a bottom that is formed to the shape of the fuselage so that the whole chamber is enclosed. Excellent for storing clothing, jackets etc.
|This shows how I constructed them using farm gates.
|An indicator that you can glance up and look at to see the relative position of the flaperons.
|The instrument panel is hinged close to the bottom for easy access to the back of the panel.
|A view if the instrument panel before the switches were labeled. The switches starting on the left side and going clockwise are: Main, Radio, EIS, GPS, Facet Pump and Solenoid. The solenoid will work only when the facet pump is running.
|This is a sketch of the location of the plywood panels inside of the nose cone. The top part is excellent for storing papers, manuals etc.
|Shows the storage area in the fiberglass nose cone.
|This is not a good picture but it shows a box that can be used to store tools, shoes etc. It is located just in front of the pan that holds the fuel tank.
|This shows an extra rib that was placed between the normal outside rib and the wingtip bow. I believe this gives a more pleasing look of the wing.
