Spoilers

by John B
(Tasmania Australia)

How do you use the spoilers on a quicksilver mx11 in conjunction with the rudder. the spoilers are connected to the foot pedals and rudder is on the stick. I have owned and flown a Chinookwt11 for 10 yrs, But this aircraft is a different kettle of fish. Do you deploy left spoiler to turn left as you use the rudder? Regards John.

how to mount the 277 rotex engine on a tierra

by russel H> holt
( nolanville tx)

I have a tierra with a 277 mounted above the wing. Its almost impossible to pull the recoil starter through the wing.

I brought it in this condition. It has spent most of its life in storage. Is there any problem with mounting the engine inverted under the wing?

Value of Goldwing Ultralight

I have a friend that has two Goldwing Ultralights that he needs to sell. They are complete, in great condition, and I believe ready to fly. One has a 47 Rotax. The other is 25 hp Cayuna (?). Includes a trailer. These are nice planes that need a home.

I'm not a pilot and have no idea what they are worth. Internet searches seem to only turn up dealers for Honda Goldwings or YouTube of people flying.

email hepler3838@yahoo.com. Any help most appreciated. thanks

Rebuilding a 1983 Tierra ultralight airplane

by Barry
(Del Rio, Texas U.S.A)

I recently bought a 1983 Tierra aircraft. I have built a weedhopper and a Hi-Max. I now have a Tierra that I would like to refurbish. What I don't like about it are the main wings. They ate OK, except they have a mylar coating on them and it's beginning to peel off and makes the plane look like crap. The weedhopper had floating wing ribs that I didn't care for at all. The Hi-Max was more my liking, but was destroyed in a flood we had here in 1998. What I'd like to do with the Tierra is to get aircraft aluminum and fashion ribs around the leading and trailing tubes and pop rivet them in. Then cover the wings with the same dacron that I used on the Hi-Max, iron in on for the tightness, then paint it. Can this be done, or am I wasting my time with this project?
