Default It can go bad

Be careful. I have seen the rope and a paper bag work using a 172. I also have a friend who had it flash back in his 172 and he was cleaning his dad out of the upholstery and even said the ash got in his teeth. I decided that I wasn't going to be in that business......

Yes I did, to scatter the ashes of a good friend, even if he was (unfortunately) a spam-can pilot.

It resembled a torpedo using the left wing tie down, some PVC tubing, a pair of linear actuators and some fiberglass work to smooth the airflow a bit. Ran the wiring along the trailing edge of the wing just ahead of the flap to a 12VDC socket on the panel with a switch controlling the actuators for his wife to open at the appropriate time.

Tested great beforehand, and worked beautifully for his 'final flight'.

I knew a guy that wound up in the vacuum cleaner at the airport once because of the pressure blowing the ashes back in the airplane (C 172).

I know of a lady that got washed out of a AT 502 after the pilot failed to open the hopper vent for dry application. The hopper rinse finished the job very well.

Original built for a Cub, and a very nice electrically actuated adaptation for underwing on an RV, credit Vlad and some bright guys in his circle.

It's the right way to do it. I'll be building another one for the RV-8 in the not distant future, attached to the same six underwing points as the 50 cal gas gun.

Default Spreading ashes

Dan, would you please share the plans for your device. I have been asked many times to spread ashes, but have never had a proper device for my RV 8.

Default spreading ashes

Found a method that worked for me. All mechanical and tested to 120 kts. I think it can withstand a reasonable cruise speed, but why risk it. Never have been able to post a picture, but email me if interested.
