Yes sir.  Still have that project, but ended up with a Velocity XLFG finally and will be concentrating on that.  

Just wanted to say hi!!

I sure do remember.  I built that wing in the garage.  Well, mostly in the garage.  The building was shorter than the wing by a foot or so.


I got a lot of advice from the guy at Velocity who built their wings.  Hundreds of them.  I used his hot wire rig to cut the cores.


I cut all the cloth on Velocity’s cutting table.  That would have been 2010 or 2011.


You ended up with my Q2 project, 50% done perhaps, plus a second wing for another of your projects.

Going to go with the AV-30 as a back up to the dual GX3s.  I know several folks using the AV-20 and since I have a bit more panel I’ll go with the larger one.   


Panel underway now.  Looking forward to putting this bird back together.


By the way.


Rick Hole,  do you remember building me a wing for the TriQ200?

Just a reminder, wire size for both power and ground is determined by the breaker or fuse protecting that circuit, not by the expected load

In the event of a short circuit the wire must conduct high current until the breaker or fuse interrupts the circuit without overheating.

For an extreme example, consider if the load were a 10 mA LED pilot light connected to a 10 amp breaker circuit.  A short at the LED would result in (more than) 10 amps flowing through the wire.   While it is tempting to think we could use perhaps a 24 or 26 gauge wire, plenty good for 10 mA, that wire would glow red hot before evaporating with the possibility of causing other nearby wires’ insulation to melt and a cascade failure result.  Or an in-flight fire.  Hence the wire must hold up for the trip current long enough for the breaker/fuse to blow.

What size wire did you use for the install?


Will I see you in September? No song lyrics intended.
