    With the new day...

    Tab closed. Have fun you guys.
  2. Deleted. Not LSA related.
  3. Bear in mind, I have not pointed any fingers at anyone in this thread. Members are free to guess who I might be referring to. I was just suggesting I felt it was a single person causing most of the dissention. But why start a thread, supposedly seeking feedback, if said feedback is apparently going to be ignored out of hand?
  4. From this user's perspective, there is one primary culprit. Which makes the solution patently obvious.
  5. Bear in mind we have a member here who actually boasted of trollish behavior on another forum after being banned - or encouraged to not renew his membership - there. I think that speaks volumes and should carry some weight as the admins decide once again the proper course of action.
  6. Since my name came up... My working solution has been to de facto ignore a member. What I mean is I still read their posts, but refuse to engage them directly, even when I'm referenced in a post. If their post contains incorrect or hazardous advice, I will just PM the person who asked the advice. A recent example? The advice to pump high pressure air into a pitot tube. I felt a need to warn against such advice, but again did not wish to get dragged into a back-and-forth that experience tells me virtually never has a good outcome. Similarly, I read the NASA thread with bemusement, but choose not to post there - seems like a colossal waste of time. I have no problem with political threads - it's easy enough to just not click on them. Anyway, that works for me. YMMV.
  7. That's what I did - I have separate ignition switches and it was not clear which switch was connected to which module. I did a Google image search for "rotax 912 color wiring" and came up with lots of good schematics and photos. Here's just one: Sorry, I can't help with anything CT-specific.

    4 camera angles vs 2 at 24 mega pixels - Mornin Coffee flight

    Thanks for clarifying that. I really had no idea what you were talking about!

    New Non-Aviation Toy

    Do it! Probably be able to find you a hangar and you can stay in our travel trailer if you don't mind roughing it. Looks like a fun car, Andy! Let me know if you need any guidance or help with the E-LSA conversion - I can't imagine you'd ever regret it.

    Beautiful - as always. A small thing: maybe just choose one transition and use that almost exclusively. Otherwise a viewer can start to wonder, "What transition's coming next?" which is distracting. I tend to like the "Cross fade" or "Cross blur" for most transitions. Other's preferences may vary, of course.

    Garmin GPSMap 396 Updating Cable

    Glad that worked out! Mark that cable and keep it in a special place!

    New 915iS Engine

    My Grumman Traveler had one. O-320, that is. I think my second Citabria did as well. I wonder what 35 extra hp would do for my Sky Arrow? 100 kt+ TAS? One can only dream!

    Garmin GPSMap 396 Updating Cable

    Let me reiterate - in my experience, not just any cable will do. I've tried many that will not "see" the GPS when plugged in.

    Garmin GPSMap 396 Updating Cable

    It's basically a USB to mini-USB cable, though from my experience not all will work. My Garmin cable has a thicker, cylindrical portion that may provide a clue as to why some simpler cables may not work. Might I suggest eBay? In an emergency I could send you mine, but I'd want it back when you're done.
