navigation and communication antennas antennas for
navigation and communication on my kitfox series 6 experimental aircraft
bearings construction I needed to re-make many of
the bearings on my kitfox series 6 experimental aircraft using a lathe
brake pedal reinforcement the brake pedals need
to be reinforced on my kitfox series 6 experimental aircraft for structural
cargo floor several modifications had to be
made to the cargo floor on my kitfox series 6 experimental aircraft for
serviceability and to insure no interference with the control system.
Cat 5 network wiring My kitfox series 6 experimental
airplane is going to be used as a development platform for avionics design so I
made sure to run cat 5 network cable everywhere for networking the various
computers and sensors.
BRS ballistic parachute I am equiping my kitfox
series 6 experimental airplane with a BRS ballistic parachute to provide a
last-chance in the unlikely event of structural failure.
fabric covering using the polyfiber process I
am covering my on my kitfox series 6 experimental airplane using the polyfiber

Rotax 912 engine on my kitfox series 6 experimental aircraft
wing fuel filter access panel filter access
panel was added to each wing on my kitfox series 6 experimental airplane to
allow easy access to clean the finger strainers on each tank.
folding wings The wings on my kitfox series 6
experimental aircraft fold, here are details.
fuel system The fuel system on my kitfox series
6 experimental airplane is very simple and reliable. Fuel flows from the
two wing tanks to a header tank where it then flows to the engine.

new trim position indicator
Unhappy with the design of the elevator trim position indicator, I threw it out
and redesigned it using digital technology.
pitot static system The pitot
static on my kitfox series 6 experimental airplane is simple and is used for the
airspeed indicator, altimeter, and rate of climb indicator. It includes a
valve for an alternate source.
seat reinforcement The seat was
reinforced to prevent contact with the control system and under-seat storage
boxes were added for additional rigidity and storage.

gas gauge I modified the gas
gauge on both wing tanks to make it more resistant to fuel and to decrease the
chance of leaks.
skills required to build an aircraft
skills required to build an aircraft at home. With patience and care,
almost anybody can build their own aircraft. Short video clips are
included showing some of the basic skills required. There are video clips
for epoxy preparation and mixing, pop rivets and pop-riveting, solid
rivets, flaring tubing, fabric covering, and the installation of
construction of the tail tail
construction on my kitfox series 6 experimental aircraft was done first because
it is the simplest part of the aircraft and is a great confidence builder
tools required to build an airplane The tools
required to build and experimental aircraft at home depend on the type of
aircraft but many can be built with basic hand tools.
wing trailing edge reinforcement I
reinforced the wing trailing edge on my kitfox series 6 experimental aircraft
because many folks had experienced warping of the trailing edge while covering.
elevator trim motor modification the elevator
trim motor is prone to cracking so I reinforced it.
under seat storage For seat stability and
added storage I added storage boxes.
