Re: LeBurg ignition installation

Hi Jim, It all sounds very logical to me, but, we are talking about the LAA!! I agree with your sentiment regarding precedence in other areas, but, having recently been through the process with my RV8 where I had to fit isolation switches for the trim and flap circuits because the LAA were reluctant...

Re: Nipper project completed

Congratulations David!! She looks splendid and I am heartened to hear that the test flying was successful. My RV8 flew for the first time on 17 Nov and I am just waiting for the weather to behave itself so the test schedule can be completed. As soon as that is done it will be back to the rebuild of ...

Re: Tipsy nipper Engine

Hi Lennard, Depends what you are looking for by way of a 'manual'. They range from the usual car maintenance manuals to some that are more specific to aircraft applications. You can buy VW aircooled engine manuals, intended for cars, from Amazon. Alternatively you could go to the website for Great P...

Re: Happy Chrimbo 2014

Hello Neil, you know me , ever the optimist!! Lots of fettling going on at the moment to graft the Magura "Big Twin" brakes onto the beastie!! I hope they are up to the job or it will be yet another mod to incorporate a brake chute! Shouldn't say it on this forum but your RV is looking goo...

Re: Happy Chrimbo 2014

A belated Happy Christmas and a prosperous New Year to everyone! The build of both the Nipper and the RV continue, depending on which end of the country I happen to be in at the time. Hoping to have them both airborne by the summer. It will make a pleasant change to do some flying rather than buildi...

Re: Bungee

Hello Pij, If you go to the "You Tube" website and search for 'Nipper uc Tool' you will find a video of Neil Spooner fitting undercarriage bungees with his self-made tool. Probably enough detail in the video to copy the tool. Although Neil has now sold his Nipper I believe he still drops i...

Hello, ......... No sooner said than done! Visited Paul today because of my vested interest with the rebuild of G-CORD. Wanted to check my fuselage profile against Paul's mould and my old damaged canopy. In the process Paul was keen to show me his new oven. Couldn't really miss it actually, as it ta...
