  1. I used white vinyl tape 2" wide for my wing gaps. I don't remember the brand name. I ordered it from Arian at Flight Design.
  2. Thank you, Anticept, I'll give it a try next time i fly...
  3. After applying solvent, a good way to remove softened material is a credit card.
  4. Issues have been fixed with the 496 not talking to the autopilot. The data/power cable to the 496 was faulty and was replaced. Still no audio from the 496.
  5. I'm aware the problem is not the transponder. The problem originated during the installation of the new transponder. Along with loss of audio I'm not getting power to the GPS. I have to turn it on manually. The auto pilot is not receiving information for the GPS and won't work properly. Also missing is information that should be appearing on the Dynon PFD. l All was working well until the avionics shop got a hold of it. Could it have something do with the data cable?
  6. I recently had a Garmin GTX335 ADSB out transponder installed replacing a GTX330. After the installation I do not hear voice warnings through my headset for "TRAFFIC" and "RADAR NOT AVAILABLE", which I previously did with old Xponder. Installer has no answer. Would anyone know what was changed? The audio connector in back of the 496 is plugged in. I'm not sure which avionics controls aural messages. Hope someone has an answer.. Thanks!
  7. Does anyone have any experience with the uAvionics tailBeacon? Is a modified template needed? thanks....
  8. I have a CTLS. By the way, did you have to make any modifications with the screw holes.?
  9. Thanks for the information. Let me know how things work for you as time goes on.
  10. Coppercity, Can you tell me what modifications you had to make to install the device on the wing tip. How is the unit working out for you? Would appreciate any info you could give me. thanks...
  11. I am considering installing the sky Beacon ADSB out. Does anyone have experience with this solution in a CTLS?
  12. I flew in Sunday afternoon afternoon. It was a madhouse. As i was on the Fisk approach, I saw a shadow over over my left wing. A Piper flew right over me. Couldn't have been more than 20 feet. I could see the oil under his fuselage. He never saw me and he slowly turned away from me. As I approached 36 right for permission to turn base, tower had not contacted me so I called them up and then turned base after getting permission. Controller hadn't a clue as to my position. As I approached the runway at about 50 feet, the tower told a plane who was just about to land on 36L to move over to 36 R where I was about to land. Fortunately there was room for both of us. There comes a point where the airport should have been closed due to the volume of traffic. All it takes is one collision and the media would have been all over it with Airventure getting a black eye. It was a miracle that we were all able to escape with our lives and planes intact. Attaching a couple of pics one of the my tent, and the other is on the way to Oshkosh along the Chicago shore and what's left of Meigs field.
  13. Thanks guys. Appreciate the input on the residue problem... I flew my CTLS to OSH from Boston this year. Camped by the plane. I hit some turbulence over the Catskill mountains and when I landed i discovered that the wing tape was peeling off. That was a surprise. I hope everyone remembers to close the fuel shut off valve after a flight. I had a bad experience after forgetting to do that. Eventually fuel leaked pass the carbs and into the cylinders and oil reservoir. What a mess!!
  14. I fly a 2008 CTLS. I'm planning on replacing the tape that covers the wing next to the fuselage However, after removing the tape there is quite a bit of sticky residue. I would appreciate some advice as to the best solvent to remove this sticky substance without harming the wing surface.
