Hello!
I am putting together a set of tools to be able to help myself on longer trips - to keep the gremlins from ruining my day.
No real repair, but eg fixing a hose, readjusting a bowden...if flying in a mechanic might be only justified for a real repair.
My question: are the sizes of external accessible screws and nuts of the Rotax officially or unofficially known? eg "do I need 10, 11, 12,13 mm spanner/wrench or do 10 and 13mm suffice"

My ideas so far (including airframe):
universal pliers
gaffa tape
electrical tape
cable ties
0,5m unisolated wire
1m isolated wire, luster terminals
(DMM?)
1l oil
sturdy folding knife
screwdriver flat stubby, fine, Philips normal, very fine
Torx?
spanners 6,7,8,10,13mm
allan keys 2-6mm
(probably don't need spare plugs and a torque wrench?)
Front tire and tube, main tire and tube

Your thoughts on this?

    Spare pair of carb floats -- gotta have floats. As a low-wing aircraft user (RV-12), I also carry a spare electric fuel pump.

    What is a DMM? and what is unisolated wire?

    DMM = digital multimeter.

    Bare, uninsulated wire?  Perhaps he meant safety wire.  I can't think of any other kind of uninsulated wire on an airplane that would be useful in half-meter lengths.
