I love cubs and this is one that I will remember forever. Great work!!!
Now I see how the latch works. I never figured out the previous wire contraption from the photo. Doors and windows are hard. 👍Door latch, take 2. I like this a lot more. It's much smoother and a lot less, just, janky I guess. The adjustable deadbolt is real nice too.
Plasti Dip? It comes in black.I'm thinking of using TPU so that they can actually have some shock absorption capability, coat them in some sort of rubberized stuff so that they're durable but still flexible and just use that to hold the halves together.
As much as I absolutely hate having to apply glow heat to keep an engine going at idle I think it might be what I need to do here. After playing with the LSN a little more today, I came to the conclusion that this engine really hates being inverted. The lowest I could get it to consistently idle with no heat was 3500 rpm whereas when it was side mounted and running upright on the stand it would put along at 2600 rpm all day perfectly happily. If that ends up not being a low enough idle to land at then I might have to add heat at idle. Don't know yet as I haven't flown the plane, and can't again until I get the new cowl done and install the weights in it. I ordered the fiberglass stuff a month ago, what the hell is Sig up to?Nicely done. When I was trying my hand at glow engines I picked up the onboard glow drivers like you're using, but never got around to actually using them before I decided to just stick with gas and electric. The plan I had was to have the glow driver activate anytime below about 20% throttle, which (in theory?) would help keep the engine running when the plane is coming in for a landing with low throttle.
