Oklahoma Sling TSi Build

Post by PatrickC »

Hello Sling community!

I recently started my TSi slow-build after a very long wait (due to significant Covid delays). I think I have the technical abilities for this project (I'm an engineer in a non aviation field), but the information on this forum and on the early build logs has been invaluable. Thank you to everyone who is sharing what they have learned!

I'm about a month in to my build, and already gave a horizontal stabilizer, elevator, and rudder to look at. I would have a vertical stabilizer too but I didn't realize my riv-nut tool did not come with an M4 mandrel. The pulled rivets really make the assembly process a piece of cake.

I am documenting my build at https://webuildplanes.com/PC-Sling. This is mostly for me and to satisfy the DAR someday, but feel free to follow along and let me know if I do something terribly wrong.

I am already enjoying this project, and I look forward to contributing to this community.

Nice posts on your blog so far and welcome to the forum! I’m still waiting on my kit to arrive. I’m just up the road in the Denver metro area... Looking forward (desperately) to my kit to arrive sometime in late May/early June...

Hey Patrick. I'm in Tulsa and currently flying a Flight Design CTLSi and got my ticket in 2019 as well!
I had visited the Sling build center in Norman in 2019 and it looks like they closed down.
Still have the bug to build and glad there's someone in the state putting one together.
Thanks for the posts, I'll follow your progress.

Hi Tom!

I'm just down the road in Broken Arrow. You are welcome to come see what my setup/process looks like in person if you want to. I'll send you a DM with my number in case you are interested.
