As you started building your Pietenpol;

1. If you could have purchased any pre-made parts what would they have been?

2. What kit or kits of parts for the Pietenpol would you have purchased?

3. What parts or kits would you like to see made available?

Just curious,
KAP

I'll begin by saying that I look back with fond memories to every fitting and assembly that I built. I remember ten years ago before beginning my build I saw a control stick assembly and complete tailwheel all beautifully fabricated for sale in Brodhead for $250 US each. It didn't tickle my economic homebuilder's fancy so I left them on the shelf. When I built mine, the materials were relatively cheap but wow it took a lot of time, trial and error, extra fitting etc. At those prices my labour was probably worth half of a 711 clerk! I think if I could go back in time I'd buy those two assemblies. The balance of the metal brackets are very airplane dependant (save for the aileron Pulley brackets on the spars and maybe the walking beam...).

My two cents.

Keri Ann,

As has been said, a great number of fittings are aircraft specific due to such things as the variety of spar thicknesses. I can think of two things that would be relatively consistent between builders -

1. The walking beam
2. The tail brace fittings
3. The aileron cable pulley brackets that are internal to each wing

I would be interested in those parts. Not that I couldn't make them, but it would be one less thing to fabricate.

Thanks for asking.
