You're welcome, Trevor! I have other drawings, too, if you need any.
I just emailed you a drawing for the front strut, in case you end up having to make your own.
Cool! Another lady returned aloft! What are her N# and serial #?
I haven't heard of anyone ever installing VGs on any Porterfields before, so you'd be a pioneer, if you decide to dance to very long song with the FAA for a field approval. The modified M-6 airfoil stalls straight ahead just under 40mph, but cruises close to 100, so I'm not sure how much benefit the VGs will provide.
Where did you get your A&P?
Welcome to our wee club for the skinny birds, Trevor! Did you buy Roger Allen's old girl? Will you be bringing her to Oshkosh? It's been years since we've had a Collegiate or Flyabout represented there. There's lots of good info in the blogs and forum, and informative photos in the pictures and videos.
