Re: 1/3 Stearman / Valach 250 radial build .

Just finished the braces for transporting the wings , also made some fixtures so I can reduce the contact points of the flying wires from 14 to 4 points per side . takes about 5 min per side to assemble now . early in the build I changed the wing tube installation to make the wing tubes parallel so the wings could come off together . I will make some big square wing bags to transport them . Had 6" of snow yesterday so still have some time before it fly's.. .49.6 lbs and needed 3 oz tail weight to bring to factory CG .. hoping I have enough clearance with the 34" prop , Gerhard did tell me if I have clearance problems I could use a 32x18 3 blade but don't go any smaller .. This thing must have some monster torque ..
