    Ran out of fuel at 4500 feet and I assure you the plane flys beautifully without the engine.Fortuantely. Had my Iphone and took a picture of the panel showing 12.5 gal of gas and 2.5 hours of flight time .In Iowa we have a road every mile and simply landed on a black top road and hitched to a gas station and completed the trip.I was mystified as to how this could happen and had laughed at the in competence of running out of fuel in a plane.When I filled the tanks the following day and started to taxi I smelled fuel.When I checked the fuel caps to insure they were tight I noticed fuel flowing off the back of the wing.Comparing the fuel caps and inspecting for damage I noticed that the black o rng under the cap was missing allowing the fuel to flow out of the full tank.When I returned home I found the o ring on the ground where the fbo had fueled the plane.My mechanic replaced them after noticing that the missing one had expanded and could be displaced trying to replace it.I had visually inspected the tubes in cockpit ,turned on the master confirmed 14 gal ,checked tanks fuel in both,with 7 in the right.I am also meticulous about input.Finally the trips are always about the same in usage and yet it was clear fuel had been lost that didnt flow through the instruement meter.Faa suggested that the caps be made part of the inspection process.
  8. Looking for a late model ctls or ctlsi .I have a 2008 ctls loaded I will sell if I find something .My ct has 550 hrs
  9. If the bill modifies the cruise limits on sport planes like ctls I wonder whether the neg flap setting could be modified to increase speed.I am also curious to hear from the experts as to what useful load could be accomadated in the ctls.It seems when I am loaded to the gills I dont sense any significant difference in flying characteristics.Of course ,I would never overload my plane but it feels lile the limitations are born from the legal restrictions not necessity.
  10. I am curious does this discussion ,which seems a little dynamic, apply to the ctls or only the ctsw.I ask because I assume in my ctls that I cant exceed 5500 rpm which is in the yellow.Are you flying in the yellow above 5500.?
  11. I have a 2008 loaded great shape 696 etc .Am looking at ctlsi . You can email me jwalker@beecherlaw.com if imterested.

  13. Have 2008 ctls 500 hrs beautifull with about everything from auto pilot to garmin 696 .all up to date including hoses.Starts easily and quickly 108500
  14. Roger, i am wondering if you can explain the variables in how the ctls prop can be adjusted for various pitches that would affect cruise ,climb. ,or max speed..I believe my ctls ,which was purchased From Fla. had the prop adjusted.I have to fly with throttle at firewall to get 5400 rpm 110 knots and 6.4 gph.The plane and engine are perfect no problems new hoses and the engine is smooth and starts with a flick of the key.i thought I saw an adjustment reference to17 degree plus but don't know if that is accurate. Would you mind giving me your expert analysis and anyone else who has an opinion chime in.I would think this to be an important issue since we are all interested in max performance measured by efficiency.I would like to gain max speed without jeopardizing the engine or completely losing climb, which is excellent.Also seems like high gas consumption for 110 kts.
  15. Any thoughts about stuck mike.Followed the book and turned off the radio a dozen times per book .seems like it could be a ground problem flying through rain .Finally just started pushing talk switch repeatedly on rt and left stick and that did the trick but wonder about a repeat and would like to understand the possible explanation and solution.thnx
