Thanks Oscar and Mark for inputs. A spar modification or outright replacement with carbon fiber may be in order. I will be using a +/-7 G loading as build criteria should I decide to build one. An airfoil replacement may be the simplest solution. You may ask, why go through all this; speed! With an O-200 in front, the KR should be able to produce better speed numbers(210-230mph) and not sacrifice much more in approach and stall speeds. I will be using my KR to commute to an Airline job.
Would be curious to know if anyone has gone off the beaten path with regards to airfoil. Any success stories? _______________________________________________ Search the KRnet Archives at https://email@example.com/.
