I come to Pietersburg Civil from time to time as I do the AP work on most of the aircraft there. Peter o Toole also has good knowlege on aircraft building. His hangar is not far from Phillip's.
i will give you a shout when I am there again.
where is the airframe?
also remember that every part has toe be inspected and sighned off before closing up. Not negotiable !!!
Do you have paperwork and plans for this frame. Does it have a logbook and build nr?

I can think of a couple of experts on wood aircraft that you can speak to. i will send you their names. I know wood but I am not an expert.
If you want I will come and inspect the progress for you but would like one of the experts to do a initial inspection if it has not been done before. Who has been signing the build progress so far?
Cheers
Richard

oh ja. ek ken vir oom peter. hy vlieg di bush baby en is nou besig met di rv7. die airframe is nou nie meer by oom phillip se hanger nie. ek het hom na ons huis toe gebring naby dendron. so 65 km noord van pietersburg. die vliegtuig het i build nommer, planne en al die nodige papierwerk waarvan ek weet. ek moet nog net die vliegtuig op my naam sit. ek weet of is die vliegtuig al geinspect nie maar ek sal by die vorige eienaars uitvind. ek self het nou nog nie aan die vliegtuig begin werk nie. gaan saterdag begin. die hele frame is klaar gebou. al wat ek moet doen voor die vlerke en fuse gecover kan word is al die control rods moet ingesit word. dan sal die vliegtuig ook seker heeltemal geinspect word. oom phillip het my van i modifikasie vertel wat ek op die wing tips kan doen. ek dink nie dit is al gedoen nie maar oom phillip se ek gaan meer lift kry op die punte van die vlerke as ek dit doen. as ek die wing tips so maak soos wat die ravens en zodiacs is, plat bo met die skuins hoek wat van onder af kom. ek sal met oom praat as oom weer ptb toe kom. ek sal dit baie waardeer as oom dalk net vir my kan kyk dat ek nie droog maak nie. ek sal oom more na skool gou bel en net met oom praat oor so paar goed. lekker aand vhpy

Hi every one. Would some experienced person please give me some advise hear. This is the wingtip my plane. I got it broken like this, and I just want to know if it will be okay if I just glue the two peaces together. There is some other structure that keep this wing tip in place as well. Have a nice day (^^)

The right glue and maybe a doubler on the inside should do it

Hi every one, I am putting this Horizon 1 up for sale now, going to start the dualstar microlight project that was up for sale a while ago. The reason is because the dualstar project will cost much less to finish and I dont have the funds to complete this project, it have a build number and the plans to complete the project, all nesessary part are there to complete the airframe, pullies and all this stuff comes with and the control cables and everything, I just want what I paid for it as I dont have money to loose, so I am asking 15000 and cant go lower than that, for any one with the funds and experience to complete the project it will be a good project that they will enjoy, my contact number 0718950749. I will whats app more pics of the plane
