There are more videos of Lazairs popping onto
You Tube.
Our old mate "Bob Barron" 11 minutes really nice.

Look for new ones in Utah at "Moab"

esp PT 6 - great scenery (too short)

I had quite a few exchanges with Bob about his engines and plane. The info was well received and apparently utilized well.

Just think, there may possibly be hundreds of hours of old Lazair footage rotting away on some dusty shelf somewhere. The best of those videos (if they exist) could easily be converted to CD.

The Moab Lazair guy apparently has moved on to Kitfox's after an incident. A sick engine finally gave out or something along those lines. Unfortunate as I was looking forward to more Utah Lazair flying videos.

I just had a FI who flies Lazair tell me about wing panels ballooning
and it gave me chills...
At that time he did not have a BRS.

SO I am pretty motivated to get off my procrastination butt and
install some.

Just because of bucks I may opt for a throw out chute, if and when I go that route.
A former Lazair pilot recommened a chute used by paraglider instructors; good up to around 450 lbs.

Get em on fellas. Don't mess with tape loosening up and balooning the panels off the plane.

Thanks Dave. I put a lot of focus on this build, and it flies as nice at it looks too.

I second Dave's comments about George's Lazair. Probably the best one that I've ever seen......even if the capstrips are down (ha ha).

No offense everyone!

With a slight bevel in the strips, it really adds rigidity and strength to the length of the strip itself. I never liked the way the strips looked with the bevel up, so I added a layer of super durable Tedlar finish tape under the cap strips (looks closely in the above pic) and it will never do any damage to the covering. Several guys I know have had then down for many years with no issues. It's a personal choice I am very happy with.
