Default Need some help

I'm building a Velocity FG, but I'm using a Cozy Mark IV nose gear and the Jack Wilhelmson electric nose lift. Jack said that there was some verbiage on page 1 of Chapter 13 in the new Cozy Mark IV plans which explains how to add a couple of plies of BID to the nose strut before adding the hardware. I have not purchased the Cozy Mark IV plans. Could somebody who has them please fill me in on what I need to do?

Thanks,

Doug Holub

Thumbs up

Wahooo, another Velocity builder on the forum. Now, Brett and I won't feel like such red headed stepchildren.

Are you building the SE or XL fixed?

Since you are in the DFW area, if'n you get down to Space City feel free to stop by. I am on my way out to the hangar now to continue the quest for flight.

How much speed (I assume it is speed you are after) do you think the retrac front gear will provide?

All the best,

Chris

Default Not for speed, for ingress/egress.

Hi Chris,

I'm building the short wing, standard fuselage Velocity FG top-door. The retractable nose gear is mostly for easier ingress/egress. If I pick up a knot or two at the same time, that will be great!

The symposium in May really got me motivated. I've been working on the plane for at least 1/2 a day per week now, whether I have the time or not.

See ya',

Doug Holub

Yup, the symposium was great. I have been making small, steady progress. Something gets done most days...probabley 4 out of 7 days per week average.

Even though it is not quite up to real time yet, I updated my webpage tonight.

All the best,

Chris
