Re: Bruce McLeod Whisper nosewheel glider

Mici & I went down to visit Dene to deliver all the imported parts last week and to see the progress of the plane. Most of the sanding is finished, the wing tips are done so the wings are now complete. Modifications to the seat pan were made at my request, they are deeper and more upright. The front...

Re: Bruce McLeod Whisper nosewheel glider

The factory finished my wings and carry through spar. Stuart fetched them and is already installing the spar. Time to get moving is right. No more excuses!! I need to start flying.

Re: Bruce McLeod Whisper nosewheel glider

I found my power plant. Is a Revmaster 2.1l modified with fuel injection and a turbo with intercooler, producing 102hp at 3400rpm. It came complete as per photos. Dene kindly fetched it for me from Grahamstown. Now we just have to squeeze it into the cowling.
