Re: Queen of the Berry Patch

Congratulations, Dik,

N1441H shines like a real Queen, again! :D
I am sure, she will give you many flights of enjoyment.

Re: Queen of the Berry Patch

Posting this on Dik's behalf... "I have just finished painting the Queen of the Berry Patch. She still needs some touch-ups and rub outs, but the paint is basically done. Need to get the wings inspected officially now before putting them back on. I am using the AMOC not the swiss cheese original met...

Joe

I have now posted in the NAA section of the Bulletin Board, too, addressing all convention attendees, not only the Sedan owners.

Re: Video of Sedan Formation Flight at Middletown ?

Or maybe even one of each Aeronca type present at the convention? Wouldn't that be neat?! :D

Re: LED or HID Landing & Taxi Lights?

Thanks, Dennis,

I believe, you are right about the holes/humidity.
I'll try to find out, if LEDs from other manufacturers have the same problem.
Will report back, when I know more.

Re: LED or HID Landing & Taxi Lights?

Hi Richard Thanks for your constructive input! Drilling holes was one of my first thoughts, too – right after :evil: :!:. One small hole at the bottom and another one at the top should be enough to solve the issue. But I am hesitating, since what goes inside – spiders, flies, mosquitos, dust, etc. –...

Re: LED or HID Landing & Taxi Lights?

It would be interesting to know, if other brand LED landing lights show the same condensation effects.

By the way, I forgot to mention: The last flights were done in a higher OAT of about 53 °F (12 °C) and there was no condensation at all.

Re: LED or HID Landing & Taxi Lights?

I am reporting back on my experience with the Whelen PAR46 LED landing and taxi lights, during the past year: First of all and most important, they have been working dependably. And they do use half the Amps that the incandescent bulbs did. So, I am not hesitating to switch them on, whenever the lig...

Re: Sedan Wheel Pant Mounting Hardware

Dik If you click on the link in my previous post, you will see a picture of the brackets we made. They are exact copies of the originals. I really can't tell you the difference in speed with or without the pants. N1331H's first post-restoration flights were done without them. I seem to be getting th...

Re: Sedan Wheel Pant Mounting Hardware

Hello Dik If everything else fails, I could offer to have a pair of original design attach brackets made for you here in Switzerland. The ones for N1331H were made after an original pair. They turned out really nice, but, as with every custom made item, they took time and quite a bit of money. In th...

Re: Queen of the Berry Patch

Sounds great, Dik!

Keep it up and post a picture or two, when you can.
We are all waiting and anxious to see the Queen's new robe! :D

Re: Another new part for Sedans

Burl

That is great news. This was the only pulley type not available to replace the old ones, during the restoration of N1331H. I'll take 2 pairs (4 pulleys).

Thanks, Matt
