    Prop balance question?

    Great I’ll get it done and thanks!

    Prop balance question?

    Yes, if the prop is out of balance. Mine was right near the acceptable limit (0.6 IIRC), and balancing it to 0.05 made the vibration in the airplane MUCH less noticeable.

    Handiflight around the world with 2 CTLS

    I’m excited to see the progress. They aren’t trying to go the shortest route, either. Amazing.

    Fuel starvation

    By the way, side note: empty 5gal Tuff Jugs fit perfectly in the baggage compartment of th CTLS. I used them on a recent XC voyage and at some airports I could just use the courtesy car to take the jugs to a gas station.

    Just sent my BRS back for repack and New rocket this time. Price $2180 + $150 for shipping. Remember the empty rocket tube must also be returned. NOT THE ROCKET. unless you want to go to Gail.

    bought one, delivery in the Fall...

    Wonderful flying up North. Many airfields have restaurants which are lacking in NC. Flew many a night flight into Godspeed CT and Fishers Island. Made me change to Boom Beam Landing Lights. Good Luck AG Keep the greasy side down

    Andy and Bill I see that you and Bill will be travelling west together. I'd like to meet you at a starting point and travel with you in my CTLS. I don't remember where Bill is located but I see you are in GA. I'll be travelling from Richmond, VA. Do you think we can arrange something? Danny Arkin (Flyboss) 804-320-3424

    Fuel starvation

    So does the occasional glance at the wingtips, ensuring that they are approximately the same distance above the port and starboard horizons.

    Prop balance question?

    Do you find it makes a noticeable difference in the composite small props?

    Short / soft field

    Rich: Never have a problem taking off we are 320ft amsl and even with little wind 2 adults and fuel the ground roll is usually around 500 to 650 feet, sometimes in winter when ground is wet I use 30 degrees of flap instead of 15. Lawrence

    Self leaning works

    My carb vent tubes are old and need replacement. One of the two has been coming off on recent flights resulting in very rough running at throttle settings between idle and wide open. Even at 13,000 if I retard the throttle a small amount the resulting roughness is huge. It has been said many times that there isn't enough differential to get high altitude leaning or to get full rich wide open throttle. I can tell that the differential is enough to make a huge difference and smooth it out at wide open so I assume the auto leaning works to a meaningful degree.

    Fuel starvation

    1/2 ball out usually keeps tanks equal and 1 full ball out transfers fuel to the other tank and feeds the engine.

    Prop balance question?

    $200 is cheap. Many are $300+

    Short / soft field

    Ed, Climbs like a banshee with just me even in the heat. Get spoiled. But put a 200 lb.er in the right seat and it climbs , but more like a few hundred feet per minute.
  17. Ed Cesnalis

    Short / soft field

    Even with density altitude above 10,000' I am off the ground in 5 seconds with 15* flaps. A CTSW that does not like to climb at sea level sounds wrong.
  18. ls6pilot

    dynamic prop balance?

    Andy, Where did you get your prop balanced? Rich
  19. ls6pilot

    Short / soft field

    Snoopy, How do you do taking off with 2 people with that short field? I can land short but Seems like my CTSW does not like to climb in the heat at higher weights.

    New Page Clarion GM is Isabel Santacruz. She is our new point of contact for the "CT Group." Illisa M. Tso has "left the building."

    Financial Ownership Maintenance Schedule

    The SoCal enviroment is highly variable. I once bought a rusted out oldsmobile that lived in Newport Beach (John Wayne is out) but the San Fernando Valley is more like the Mojave Dessert (Van Nuys Okay).
