That is about the only decent hotel in Mendig.🛌.

On the other hand, the better place to eat (and drink house beer) is Vulkan Brauerei: https://g.page/VulkanBrauerei?share

If you have the choice between a Stairway to Heaven and a Highway to Hell don't forget the Nomex®!

Captain,  Lotus Airways. We fly lower!

Gas struts fitted to carbon deck. So anyone else wanting to do the same I'll share what I did.

1) Measure 22.5" from the top of the deck (outside of the hinge) down the cabon channel and pencil mark.

2) Get two off aluminium 6mm ID threaded ball studs (SGS link here https://www.sgs-engineering.com/x2-ball-extension)

3) Get a packet of rivnuts, I used aluminium instead of steel. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Rivnuts-Aluminium-Cylindrical-Grooved-Flat-Head-M4-M10/253962168034?var=553283995893

4) Put a small pilot drill through, the a 9mm on for the final size.

5) use a home made rivnut tool and tighten up.

6) Fit struts, jobs a carrot and works really well.

 

cheers

After adding the deck and the 380 Cup wing I got some info relating to body supports that compensate for the extra force applied to the body. These brackets add strength to stop flexing if not fitted you may stand a chance of splitting the body as I think Imran did. They attach to the body using the reverse light/fog light fixing bolts.

 

These are a Lotus part, available from your favourite parts dealer, although one is on back order,

 

cheers
