  1. Your potentiometer has failed and it's seeking flap position. Extremely common. The control board constantly monitors flap position by the use of a potentiometer configured in a voltage divider circuit. As the flaps move, the sense wire will receive a different voltage. When the potentiometer has failed, the voltage on sense will fall outside of the normal range and the flaps will try to seek that position based on if sense voltage is too low or too high, and get confused, resulting in extending and retracting as it runs across the bad spot in the pot track trying to find position. Sometimes that seeking will be enough to loosen the crap on it and it will start working again, but it will happen again. There's a lot of posts already on this forum that covers how to replace and configure the pot. It is located on the flap actuator column.
  2. Flaps down lowest. Use the manual down setting.
  3. It's been a long time since I recall seeing it. It's not turning up in the regs themselves, so perhaps it was an AC (and thus not regulatory). I just know there was an important point about them needing to be sensible, if you toss a lump of papers on the inspectors desk there's some technicality about them being able to reject it. Man that class was a looong time ago.
  4. Tom i want to put this out there: the requirement is that the logs must be in an easy to read order. Written on napkins might work, but just stuffing them in a bag won't work, since there is no order to it.
  5. The jack screw is inside the assembly. That's a cap, probably so they can inject grease during manufacturing. There are 4 screws if I recall correctly. Two of which are near that cap. Keep flaps at lowest position before you do this or you'll have parts going everywhere... and again, you should still be laying out rags and such to catch the parts.
  6. Put a very thin piece of soft foam on the mounting flange for the cowling along the windshield area. Rubber won't conform very well.
  7. The nice thing about the thermostat is if you deal with renters, you don't have to worry about them forgetting to take the tape off and damaging the engine. But in extremely cold weather you need the tape anyways...
  8. There is no strain relief on our connections, which is absolutely awful. Vibration wears them out. None of the female pins should move more than what is barely perceptible while installed. If any pins slide in and out, it's a bad connection and must be replaced.
  9. The HS 34 wiring diagram is located in the appendix of the dynon d120 EMS installation manual.
  10. These crack all the time. I think people put the stuff on too thick. It's extremely expensive stuff though, just order a smaller amount from flight design.
  11. Size 2.5 and 3 are the common ones. Size 3 holds the panel on.
  12. It can be done by hand too. You should practice on junk plastic first. It's like turtle wax's polishing compound, but has several stages even finer than that.
  13. Adding onto what Tom said: you can just tip the airplane and it will get the fuel flowing again.
  14. You have to polish it. There is a kit product on aircraft spruce called scratch off.
  15. It's either the the "mic" port or that RP port, I'm pretty sure of it.
