Re: Herb's latest modifications on N709HR

Nah, doing fine,and building yet another already; Citabria. The plane [709HR] was taken by AIG, for what I assume to be cost recovery of the hull damage I carried on the plane. From what I could see of the remains, what I did not wreck, my rescuers did a fine job of making sure those parts were unus...

Re: Herb's latest modifications on N709HR

Morning Guys! Just found the W&B for 709HR, along with the documentation on the engine dyno; both are attached for your enjoyment. While it was like no other Pietenpol, and it was highly modified, it flew like a dream. Constructed like no other, it was my experiment, and I only wish I had more time ...

Re: Herb's latest modifications on N709HR

Yes, doing fine; hope to get the Halo off on the 14th of November. Will have to dig out the W&B info, but in order to keep the plane legal under the LSA rule it was limited to one adult for sure. The engine was non turbo EJ 2.2, and I will dig out the dyno documents to prove the 150HP it developed a...

Re: Herb Rose

Good Morning Brodhead Pietenpol! I thank my fellow builders and concerned individuals for their support over the last six weeks. I suffered my worst nightmare at the end of 05 on 9 August as most of you know. It appears that as I've aged so has everything else, like my heart; it has what the doctors...

Good Morning! You are 100% correct, and I've been waiting on the extra large heat shrink I ordered locally to get here, so I can do just that. Unfortunately, living next to "No-Where" has it's on set of problems, and things just take a little time to get done. Thanks, HD Rose NX709HR, Bendigo Field

Herb's latest modifications on N709HR

Good Morning Piets! Having just arrived back from a wonderful cycling trip to Yellowstone, and two days at Oshkosh Airventure, less the fact I wrecked my left knee, I wanted to share with those Pietenpol Builders, my most recent modifications to my aircraft. As posted previously, the axle/brakes fro...

Re: Spring landing gear

Morning Steve: Steve, after long and somewhat tedious adventure of design/change, and reviewing the great information I have from Earl Brown, I confess, the best possible solution of the spring gear would be the design of the J-3 with regard to where the spring-canister connects to the structure. I ...

Re: Spring landing gear

Morning Steve! The 2.25 square mounting plate on the axle assemblies bolts to the 3.25 square base I provided for weldment of the tubing forming my gear. Because the sealed bearing provided little to no protection for side-loading, I have removed and will install the new axles from Matco when they a...

Re: Herb's Pietenpol

Good Evening Folks: Today, I am most proud to announce that NX709HR took to the air for the first and second time. This is clearly not your father's Pietenpol, for in less than 125 feet of run-the craft is off the runway and sky bound. I had three of my friends here to witness and video tape the eve...

Could you please send me a picture of that anomaly? In the meantime, I'll look through my building logs for the travel you asked for. By memory, I'd surely be sending you down the wrong path.
