  1. Battery charger

    I have a Battery Minder model 2012 (Not the AGM 2012-AGM). The company web site notes that it is not for use in Light Sport Airplanes. Are they just trying to get me to buy another charger? there was no mention of this precaution when i first purchased the 2012 model. It doesn't seem to charge very well and occasionally I get a light showing dead cell. But the battery is new. When the plane has been down for a few weeks the voltage in the Dynon reads only 11.00 to 11.3. After flying it reads about 11.8. Second Question. I have a cheap BATTERY TENDER I PAID $50 for. Would that hurt the odyssey 310? It seems to charge much better. Thanks for any help.
  2. Aileron trim wheel is loose.

    Thanks. I'll have a look.
  3. The aileron trim wheel has suddenly become free wheeling and doesn't seem to be connected to any cables. It's loose and turns freely on its axis... What do I need to remove to gain access and attempt fix the problem.. Second question...how to get it back on track. Appreciate any help in this matter. thanks....
  4. FRESH AIR VENTS STICKING

    thanks for your response, guys.....
  5. What type of lubricant would work well on the side window sliding fresh air vents?
  6. Door lock problem

    I did try locking the door unlatched, but no joy there. the locking mechanism works freely when door is open, so no lubricant is needed. it's just when the tab drops down as I turn the key, it doesn't fit into the slot in the frame. The locking tab in the door is not aligned properly with the slot in the frame. I've tried pulling and pushing on the door as I attempt to lock it, but no help there.
  7. Door lock problem

    Sorry i didn't explain this properly. My question is about the key lock not the pins and insert into the frame.
  8. Door lock problem

    Having a new problem with locking one of my doors on my 2008 CTLS. The metal lock tab no longer inserts into the opening in the door frame. I close the door all the way using the latch inside the cockpit and even push on the door and still it won't slide into the opening in the frame. Any thoughts?
  9. Weight and balance

    Would someone be kind enough to share with me a weight and balance spreadsheet for my 2008 CTLS that I can use on the iMac with all the proper arms. I'm having difficulties finding this information for pilot, baggage, etc. POH doesn't help. Thanks!
  10. Flap settings

    Yes, I'm using the flap controller switch. thanks for your input. I've decided not to use this setting as there wasn't much of a speed increase.
  11. Flap settings

    I've been able to manually raise the flaps past the -6 position using the flap switch. There is no indication on the flap viewing screen of any flap position when I do this. Anyone familiar with this? Could this be a -12 position? I don't seem to gain much speed doing this, maybe a knot or two. Any safety issues involved? Thanks for any help...

  13. Propeller noise

    Lately I've been hearing a high fairly loud high pitched squeak when turning my prop to burp the engine. It happens in cold and warm weather. It's a recent problem. Has anyone experienced this, and what could it be. thanks...
  14. Mater switch for autopilot?

    Thanks Amabo. That solves my problem. Being as the auto pilot isn't on until the avionics switch, then when turning the engine master on there would be no harm to the auto pilot as the avionics has not been turned on yet.
  15. Mater switch for autopilot?

    Thanks Bill. I'm aware of the supplement. It shows an autopilot master switch in the electrical diagram. That's what I'm looking for. I want to protect the AP when switching on the engine master switch.
