    That sucks!! I would try drilling the hysol out and filling with solid cf rod. Then I would drill in a fresh spot for the new pattern. Should be solid as long as the cf rod is tight.

    I could have swore that the 170 is the same pattern as the 150/200, it just uses 6mm bolts instead of 5mm. My zdz uses the 5mm bolt, same pattern as the 150/200. I had a 3 blade 29 x 12 EVO that was drilled for the 6mm bolts and I glued in some hollow CF tube and drilled it for the 5mm bolts. It...

    Yippee! What the postman brought

    That landing gear is made by Fibrojet from Spain, correct? I got some gear from Al for an Extra 300 and really like the way the gear looks and is made. It is definitely stout. Hoping to get the Dalton back in the air this weekend, as long as we don't need floats to use the field! We have rain...

    Discussion Onboard On/Off Switches

    Before I switched to Jeti radios, all I used were Fromeco switches and never had an issue Since switching to Jeti, I have used the magnetic switches and found them to work as described. They can be tempermental on magnet position, but once you figure out the positioning, they work well I...

    Idea! Avatar Update

    Funny you should mention the 200. I am using a 30 x 13evo 3 blade on my 180 on the 330lx that weighs 43 lbs dry and it will pull through a double snap on a vertical upline and keeps on going. I have had a couple judges ask me why I don't apply throttle until I am in the uplines and I tell them...
