Ken,
Good to hear that you're making good progress with the repairs.
Now for a couple of serious questions:

1) How will you seal the balsa wood airbox?

2) In the photo, how did you get the dog to stick to the wall like that?

Bill C.

Hi Ken,

Really glad to see you making such good progress. I thought your Piet was one of the most beautiful I have seen and nice to see it close to flying again. Was really sorry to see the first flight pictures.

Hi Bill,

I can answer your questions. It's clearly visible to me. He used T-88 to seal the airbox and Velcro to hold the dog to the wall. I do that to my dog all the time. Smile

Scott,
You have very good eyes. Can you see the air in the brake lines too?

So Bill, 

You're on the right track.  My hope was that by having the fuselage on the side of the wall the air would bubble out of the brake lines on its own.  If that doesn't do it, it may be necessary to work on it while standing inverted from the ceiling.  Maybe I'll try that in the next picture I attach to an email.

I resisted going to the FB group for a long time, but a couple of years back, the tone of this group degenerated radically and got real negative because of a few people and this group shrank to almost nothing. I stayed on, but really missed seeing people’s projects and hearing about their progress etc so I went over to the dark side.

Seems like those people have moved on now that the damage is done, but there used to be 20-30 posts a day from fun stuff to technical stuff and without this group I wouldn’t have been able to build my plane. It’s a shame, but I don’t see it coming back though I still lurk.

Douwe


Douwe,

I have 2 reasons for not posting as often as I used to. The first is that I have had a slow down in my progress do to family matters taking precedence. The second is me becoming more timid to ask questions because a couple of people would scold you for not searching the archives first. The archives are very useful but they sure take the fun and camaraderie out of discussing your project with other builders. I belong to an RV (campers) forum and most of the questions are from newcomers. They are very repetitive but give us an opportunity to reach out and help them. I made a few very good friends this way. Sending them to the archives would not of produced the same results.

John

Hi All,

Picking up the discussion here about this list versus the Facebook group...

A group of us at Brodhead Airport have agreed to take over responsibility of the Brodhead Pietenpol Association, beginning this week. As part of that handover, we are creating a new BPA website and I would like to know people's thoughts on having a Builder's Forum there. It would be an updated version of this list's software and I have asked permission from Matronics to use the entirety of this list's content in an archive on our site, so it is searchable.

You can check it out here:

Hey Pat,

I am all for it. I’m not anti-FB, but I it’s not my first choice for this type of activity.

Thank you for taking the lead on this and thanks for asking,

Hi Pat,

It sounds like a good idea to me. I am on both this and the FB Piet pages.
I say if it helps people out, then it's a good idea.
Best of luck with it!

Hi Pat,

I think Steve's idea of having prominent links to both sites is a good idea, after all, we all like the same plane.

Both FB and Matronics have their pro's and cons, however, I think that in this day and age, the FB page reaches allot more people around the world, spreading the good word about Piet's, which has to be a good thing right?

As for me, I like the idea of utilizing all of the information, pics etc that are available on both sites.
I do however really like the archives list on Matronics, that is the one thing that FB lacks.
If the new BPA site can have a mix of both, that would be very good.

Thanks

I'm all for this! Especially including the BPA newsletter. It has been frustrating because I've subscribed, but never received the letter. Also, FB is too difficult, too limited and subjects me to too many unwanted interruptions/contacts/ ads.

Thanks for doing this,

Great new forum software Pat (and free), would be ideal if the Matronics Piet content could be moved over to it (may be a bit of work to move though).

come to think of it, ever since the newsletter went away, I can't remember if I'm a current member of BPA anymore. I would subscribe every year because I liked when the newsletter would appear in the mail

By the way: I just noticed that this thread, which began July of 2016 with a post by Douwe, morphed into a progress update by Ken Bickers of the rebuild of his damaged Air Camper (and the discussion of how he got his dog attached to the wall in the picture), is showing that it has had over 2000 views since then. I guess this is an indication of how much interest there is in expanding the Pieten-world into social media and friendlier user-group interfaces.

Don't get me wrong, though... I still love it when I open the mailbox and a printed BPA Newsletter is there. I realize that the days of print newsletters are rapidly fading and that they are a lot more work than e-newsletters.
