Re: Tsi Extra Parts available

You might want to check to make sure that the reinforcing angles were installed along with your channel. Mine were not, nor were they included in my parts list - but TAF said they needed to be installed.

Re: New TSi Seats

Well, I think I figured out that I have a franken-config regarding the seats. Fortunately, I have yet to sink the rivets, but my cleco-ing has been an interesting process. I believe I have: 1 Two seat bottoms and backs that are old style 2 One custom made seat bottom and rails of the new style to ge...

Re: New Canopy Strut Design

Is there a setting that I need for Dropbox to ensure that I am seeing any new files that are being posted? For instance, my Canopy Kit KAI on Dropbox says it was updated on 3/6/2020. Is that correct?

Re: Tsi Extra Parts available

I have a rudder pedals mounting channel - mine was installed in the QB, but I got one as a part.

Re: Rudder Pedal Control Stops

I ended up putting the stops in a vise and bending the ears back a bit on both stops. They now clear the center supports and yet still grab the other stop. Not the best design perhaps, as the possibility of interference should the pedal assemblies move laterally in their bearing surfaces would be a ...

Re: Known building "Gotchas" for the Sling TSi

On page 12 of the WIP Fuselage Manual, it shows the position of the GMU 11 mounting bracket. In my Quickbuild, my GMU 11 bracket is one more rib forward. The picture on the WIP Fuselage manual page 18 shows the bracket where it is on my Quickbuild. This should be resolved in the manual; #slingsupport

Re: Composite/Fiberglass End Pieces

Not that I could tell - just the same thickness front to back.

Re: Composite/Fiberglass End Pieces

Elevator Composite tips - I reinforced mine with washers epoxied on the inside. Seemed to work well. Once you countersink those holes, the material seems pretty thin to hold up to a rivet pull. https://photos.app.goo.gl/qgtBvF8H6qcNeVLg7

Re: Known building "Gotchas" for the Sling TSi

Elevator On page E 2.4 of the Empennage 2018/11/15 build manual - Step 6 - it says to use 4.8 x 12mm rivets. Such rivets are not supplied from the factory. The build center in Torrance says to use 4.8 x 15mm instead (RIV-165). On page E 2.5 of the Empennage 2018/11/15 build manual - Step 11 - The Gu...

Re: Known building "Gotchas" for the Sling TSi

The picture that the technical team replied in your post shows that all 8 holes should be riveted. Yes, maybe so, but when I received my quickbuild from the factory, they had dimpled one of my five inspection plates and they had only dimpled 6 of the holes. Regardless of their diagrams (often incor...
