Re: New idea for pumping foils - beaver tail.

Large surface area would probably create too much drag.....

But certainly a great idea...

Re: Spitfire club

Any gains in ventilation are offset by losses in the drag and annoying whistling created by the texture on the wings...plus zeeko gets away with less finish work.....unless you have data rather than anecdotal evidence its a gimmick....

Re: Spitfire club

...says the Oz Zeeko rep....

Is this the Zeeko culture...dont have an answer - go after the consumer?
so much hostility toward technical discussions in the 'spitfire club'

Anyhow the AVS looks identical to a G10 peel ply liner...like this....

Re: Spitfire club

Star drive bolts might have been the better choice on the fuse connection....the socket screw heads are large....

Re: Spitfire club

Yup, mine are white also. Im thinking its the AVS ... I coated the wings with glazing filler and sanded them off. Amazing the flaws you find when leveling off new wings....we'll see if it changes its tune....
