    Good thing I put tape on the radiator. The cabin heater worked well enough for a window/vent open for photos.t was good enough to fly with a

    EB3, I have removed some of my decals and it was a long and difficult process to peel a couple of the smaller decals off. I tried hot air from a hair dryer, alcohol, solvent including acetone, goof-off, etc. I finally used a piece of plexiglass that I formed a putty knife-like "blade" which didn't scratch the paint and some heat to raise parts of the decal where I could start to peel it off with my fingers. It constantly ripped and I would have to start over with lifting a corner in order to pinch it with my fingers to lift it up. I'd like to hear if there's a better way because I also would like to eliminate some additionsl decals on my 2006 CTSW.

    I have a 2006 CTSW and I just installed the TailBeacon. I am waiting for my chute to come in (tomorrow hopefully) and I will go fly and see if it works. I made a little plate so I could use the existing h/w and attached the h/w that comes with the TailBeacon to it. I made some extra Polycarbonate templates if anyone is interested that I can send to you. The reason the hole on my plate looks goofy is you have to put the unit in at an angle and twist it and it locks in. I had to make slight mods to the mounting plate on the device and I have pics of those as well I can send. Once I go fly I will report back and let you know if it actually works as expected.

    The spring would bottom out with a bang because of solid metal to metal contact. This was causing things that were not supposed to bend to bend. The new style has infinitely increasing resistance without the hard stop. Less prone to damaging other parts of the frame.

    I don't put a gob of grease on, but I do apply a tiny amount so they won't bind up and can more freely while installing them and when they are under tension while using the aircraft.

    It is underlined on page 10 of the "Nose Gear Suspension Damper Upgrade" document that Roger posted for you not to long ago.

    I had one of these "Charge4" USB chargers in my previous aircraft. They're specifically designed for aviation. I liked it so much that I've just bought another for my CT. https://charge4.harkwood.co.uk/ UK based, but I'm sure they'll ship internationally. More expensive than other options perhaps, but worth it for a fit for purpose device in my opinion.

    I spoke to a young lady from Lewis University this afternoon. They have a CTLS that was donateded to them to use in thei flight training program. They are now going in a different direction. I have worked on and flown the airplane before it was donated. It might be just what you are looking for. I think they are deciding whether to sell as is, or do the rubber replacement and parachute.

    Planning for the 2019 Annual Page CT and Light Sport Fly-in will start shortly. Working with the hotels and other sites needed to lock in availability. "Stay tuned" for the announcement with dates within a couple of weeks. Olav

    Removed the starting carb. Was able to tighten the line nut snugly and all is well. Thanks for all the help.

    Thanks Bill, the Whitney shot is my best Whitney yet. My first year and 1/2 all my skies were blue because I was afraid of the weather.

    Bozo, I don't think your Garmin transponder is sending either a Blue Tooth or wi-fi signal to your uAvionix's unit. Most legacy transponders don't have such capability. Instead, uAvionix uses its power lead to "read" the transponder transmissions. The 978 MHz UAT system uses a digital radio signal. It's a sequence of pulses, each of which causes a slight, but detectable, dip in the aircraft's bus voltage. This was uAvionix's brilliant way around a Garmin patent which prevents other ADS-B manufactures from using transponder transmissions. Mike Koerner

    It's not so much the imbalance I worry about but the fact that in flight it only uses fuel from the left tank and completely drains the right tank. Not comfortable with the tank running dry all the time.

    We are getting close to the deadline. What is the solution for the CTLS? UAvionix on the wingtip won't work and now I have found out that the taillight unit won't work either. Apparently the carbon fibre blocks the wing tip version and makes it unreliable. I tried to install the tail version and the mounting holes are different. The taillight on the CTLS uses angled mounting holes and are further apart than the UAvionix unit. The unit needs to be mounted with the fin on it vertical and using the mounting holes would have it a about a 41 degree angle. They have no plans on revising the mounting bracket to make it work. I have one I was going to test for them but now I need to start looking at something else.

    Has FD issued a fleet wide authorization for the GDL 82 in our planes? Did you each have to request an MRA or are you all experimental? Danny
