Hangar Flying / Wobbley brakes
« on: August 11, 2007, 09:41:29 PM »
I just put new brake pads and discs on my Varieze, I had two landings, one with fairly heavy braking, and now they wobble.  

I am assuming I have warped the rotors.  

I have wheel pants and it was a short taxi to my hangar.  

Any Ideas?  

I am thinking of venting the wheel pants so they cool better.

Can I machine turn the rotors or should I replace them?

Thanks for any help guys!

Hello fellow pilots.  I just bought a Varieze last week.  It was in flying condition.  It needs new brakes, disks, tires.  Not too hard eh?  Well I had the canard off and slid under the plane for storage, after taking the wheel off the gear slipped off the stand (1") and the whole plane started bouncing.  It tilted back.The prop was vertical and it poked right through the top skin of the canard!    :x   Can someone fix it?  The plane is at VNY.

By the way, I have the canard off because I am installing a Dynon EFIS!

I will post pics later, it hit midspan, trailing edge, 3" crack, scratched the elevator, nicked the prop, grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!

 :cry:
