I put my fairings on when I had it all apart for painting. I lined them up
as well as I could, assuming where the top or bottom of the wing would be,
and rather than a round hole where the jury s ...

armrest and added a top and tail strobe, so it ...

No problem Don. I don't have the paperwork as its all in the hangar, but it
was a company from Ohio so that's the likely the one. All four struts can't
weigh a pound, if that, and they were easy ...

Mine does the same thing and I put X braces on all the olarger unsupported

You are right, Tommy! I've found holding the stick back and keeping the
ball centered with the throttle retarded, and the plane does nothing. It
just sits there and after a while when the airspe ...

them off I guess I'd just cut them off flush, ...
