I have the airbrake mod installed. Hadn't heard of the engine fume
problem previously. It seems to be plumbed in pretty tightly but at
100+knots air can get anywhere i suppose.(i don't know if there is a
speed limit on it's use)
Does anyone have any answers on this subject?

Hi Austin, Farry's is immaculate, I think you will get lots of
useful info from him.
I don't have a reflexer, I have the little tailplane type trimmer
mounted on the fin. I did think about changing it to a reflex, but
advice has been to stick with it. I could do with some rigging
if anyone has it please.
Has yours got the rear belly airbrake mod by the main gear leg?
thinking that it may be worthwhile for short runways like we get
UK, but advice is mixed. One point made was that it lets the
fumes straight in the cockpit. You might like to ask farry if he
this problem, or is his box sealed?
Filling and sanding of defects. I have been at that for a couple
weeks now, just on the tailcone at first to experiment. I'm using
West epoxy with a dryish mix of 401 ultralight filler which seems
bond quite well, and gives a fairly hard surface which sands well,
but possibly not quite so quick as polyester type fillers. I will
float it over with primer and a finish of two pack poly. Then if
goes well I'll use the same process on the Fuselage.
