Fuselage Cross Members
Posted: Fri Feb 09, 2018 7:47 pm
I started the project in Jan and just finished rib # 12. I've been looking ahead at the fuselage-the long wooden version. I don't see a drawing that shows where the cross members go. Looking at the original fuselage drawing it appears they go under the vertical members. This would move the landing gear fittings so I need some clarification. Is moving the gear back approx. 16"(improved gear that came with the plans) acceptable? I'm planning on a C85 or stripped down O200. Thanks and hope to put names to faces at Brodhead this year.
