Why waiting, lets start building. If you have buyer for a pair off long whisper wings, I will try to buy Girrie's kit. It is still "in the Box". You make the new wings and I start building the Fuselage. and before the end of 2007 she will fly!!!!!!

A lot of guys want speed. But what will the fuel consumption be. Will its still have the same fuselage with shorter wings? what about aerobatics. Something between an express and a RV. I think I will be the first to try it, must first sell ZU-JWN. Are you going the build a lighter fuselage. I think ...

Tjoek, Ek het ook eers nadat ek "gepleister" het dit probeer gelyk trek en sodoende micro gespaar en gedink ek verkort die skuur proses, maar het later uitgevind my maniere van kortpad soek veroorsaak dat ek later weer micro moet opsit.

Comment

Hi Mike, I see what you meen. You have the right to be upset. The foam for the wing roots were precut by Whisper, they only had to fill in extra foam depending on your own design for the wingroots. I think that if they had sticked to the manual there would not have been any problems. Were I used my ...

Micro layers

Tjoek, Lyk my niemand wil jou antwoord nie. Ek het een laag micro gesmeer oor die hele vlerk, en waar daar duike is bv bo-op die main spar het ek die mikro net dikker geplak. Ek het ook gevind dat as ek die micro aanmaak met fast hardener en resin smeer dit makliker aan-- dis meer sticky en klou mak...

Sorry to here about your problems

Do not pay before you see results. But to tell the truth it will cost you close to R400 000.00 to complete te Whisper if you are not putting in some labour from your side. It ask at lot of time to complete a whisper, and when you building it yourself you normally do not divert your hours into money....

Whisper express glide ratio

I measure the glide ratio a few times and got different figures. I think a optimistic figure wil be between 21-1 to 24-1. During the proving flights I had to swiched off the engin just after take off due to a water pipe that came loose. I did a 180 turn, 400ft above ground level join left down wind ...
