    Doug Smith commented on Doug Smith's picture.
    Yes Michael, it's a early 90's Sabre Trike. The Truman fiberglass mains had a few failures on hard landings. So Sabre added aluminum sleeves over the rods to stiffen them up. ( Third hand info to me...) but I was sure they couldn't handle the extra ...

    I'm always a little late to these discussions.... but I want to jump in on the purposely vague language several of you mention... 61.315...(c) You may not act as pilot in command of a light-sport aircraft:...(13) Without visual reference to the ...

    Doug Smith Hey Trikers in the Shreveport, Louisiana area. I been chatting with a local EAA fellow there that needs help. They have a Trike and Trailer that was donated to their chapter. They want to sell it but have no clue as to condition. They need help setting it up, or at least setting up the wing for pics to sell it. As a homebuilt it doesn't look that bad, perhaps someone here has seen it and knows it's history. If you are in the area or are interested, please email Robert at: robpen5557@gmail.com, Link to FB page he sent me https://www.facebook.com/groups/BackyardFlyer/permalink/766127950154558/

    As the Experimentor and Chief of my ELSA. I can admit to several hair brained ideas, and more than a few involved fuel and pumps. But I do not under stand extending a vent line 8-10'? And if it as Larry suggested, it was an "Overflow" line, then I ...

    Think it can be made out of aluminum? I have access to a kiln and was thinking of making a mold and pouring it in one piece. Then add a trailing arm. Wouldn't be hard.
