Culver General Discussion / Re: New old project

Hi Woody,
Any luck?  I saw an ad on Barnstormers recently, someone has plans and parts for sale. 
I'm not sure, is Neal's son not continuing the sales of the Culver STF plans?
Keep the updates on your project coming!  If there is any information you need on the fuselage, or pictures from another Cadet, let me know.
Maintenance and Repair / mounting the wings
« Last post by Keith U. on March 11, 2016, 08:21:35 AM »
My support stands are built, hoping to mount the wings soon.  Any words of wisdom to make it easy on my helpers?  It seems like I need an engine hoist and three people holding the wing and one inserting bolts.  Anything else?
Culver General Discussion / New old project

Hello everyone,
  I'm way behind with this project after two years of work on a Mooney Mite that is now finished.
I'm looking for plans of the Culver.  My wings are done and ready to cover.  The fuselage is not finished but I'm wanting to get to work on it.  Sometime this month I will bring it back to my place to start back on it.  I have a restored and blueprinted Franklin 90 hp motor waiting to be mounted.
Anyone have a set of plans they don't need or are finished with? Thanks for your help! Woody

Dan,  I just realized that only one of the picture I tried to send you attached.  Also, I should have removed the triangle shape inspection plate to allow viewing of the pitot tube attachment.  On my first Cadet the pitot tube were attached to the center of the inspection plate.  This on appears to attached to the wing rib.  I will take more picture and try sending them again.   Tim

Hi Bill,
Will you post the dimensions (height/length) of your saw horses?  I am almost ready to mount my wings and want to get the height of my horses right.  Thanks,

Hi all,

I am just finishing the last detail work on the new left wing before installing the leading edge skins and wing walk skin.

I just realized that I do not have a reference on how the pitot tube attaches to the wing.

Also, I do not have a pitot tube.

Can someone help me with this?

I saw this long ago and thought I would pass it along.  Have no idea who the author was:

" The next time someone sneers at a wooden airplane, remind them that it is made of a UNIDIRECTIONAL REINFORCED LAMINATED COMPOSITE material consisting of MICRO-TUBULAR fibers embedded in a LONG CHAIN POLYMER MATRIX and having a near infinite fatigue life!"

If they have a puzzled look after that, don't say anything more, just smile an all knowing smile. ::)

Looks like a great airplane for a great price!
