Sonerai spinners tend to crack around the cutouts, so reinforce yours before it happens to you. A reinforcing disk on the forward bulkhead is also good insurance, and you MUST use a forward bulkhead.Spinner Reinforcement

Don Shipley from Florida sent me these pictures of the mighty pretty IIL he recently bought:

A mini-Rv-3:

A project about 60% complete. The canopy frame is already fitted, that's why there are two tubes along the cross members and the longerons.

This is a low wing, the turtledeck is 2 inches higher than the prototype. The box behind the pilot's seat is for luggage and other light junk.

This exhaust is tuned to "1/2 Wave", egual length primaries, the aluminum tray directs cooling air along the sump, which has been extended a little for more capacity.
