Re: SPYHUNTER'S PILOT REPLICA-IN-THE-MAKING

In the last couple of months since the nose was finished, the lower cowling has been finished. First the front area was sheeted in using thin metal: https://i.postimg.cc/pTMgZMYn/5-Front-Sheeting.jpg For the underside areas with complex curves spray foam was added... https://i.postimg.cc/GpyWGmYC/6-...

Re: SPYHUNTER'S PILOT REPLICA-IN-THE-MAKING

When last we saw the compressed-air-vertical-lift/air-foils assembly (which from now on I'll just call the lower cowling), it had been rough framed in wooden shapes: https://i.postimg.cc/zBn1ZGXj/1-Wood-Frame.jpg https://i.postimg.cc/vTbwQw4d/2-Wood-Frame.jpg https://i.postimg.cc/mZyGmknZ/3wood-Fram...

Yeah, they look flat on the pilot bikes, so we could use these: https://www.mcmaster.com/standard-flat-head-screws

I've always thought they looked to have an aluminum sheen, and aluminum ones are available.

Re: SPYHUNTER'S PILOT REPLICA-IN-THE-MAKING

Yes, those are slotted and correct except the heads aren't flat, they have a slight dome shape on head. Yes all bikes had it! Yes I found them on ebay. Some bikes had them painted the midnight blue and others had left them just the natural metal color. Thinking it over, the ONE reason you'd use Dzu...

Re: SPYHUNTER'S PILOT REPLICA-IN-THE-MAKING

Does anyone know the name of these twist in metal lock down pins? The receptacle has 2 holes so you can rivet the unit onto some type of frame. The receptacle has a hole in the center and you have to push down and twist the pin to stay locked-in to place...... The male pin has a slot in the head. Y...

Re: SPYHUNTER'S PILOT REPLICA-IN-THE-MAKING

One of the biggest mistakes made by the designers on the proto and series bikes are the metal twist tabs that mount into the fiberglass mounting holes ended up elongating, cracking, and getting pulled out of the glass holes. There is no support. my recommendation is to add a drilled metal plate on ...

Re: SPYHUNTER'S PILOT REPLICA-IN-THE-MAKING

What is the total weight of the nose piece with the beer tray? I should have weighed it before I shipped it out, but didn't. I think around 15 lbs or so. I'll try to remember to weigh the next one. How soon can you send me one? Got you down for one, and will try to crank them out as soon as I can, ...
