    I’m in.

    having Flap problems? check this out!

    The reason I mentioned it is that I once posted a drawing to ctflier showing the FD drawing for installation of the GPS antenna for ADS-B and got called on it, and rightfully so. Arian provided it to me free of charge, so I figured it was OK but it had the same note at the bottom of the drawing, which I missed. Maybe this case is different if it’s in the maintenance manual. I’m all for free flow of info but don’t want to see anyone get sued for a copyright violation. Merry Christmas everyone!

    OK, if FD has provided an agreement in writing that it can be publicly disclosed, there’s no problem. If not, then just being in the ‘download section’ does not make it legal.

    Shouldn’t be sharing proprietary data (see note,lower right). I should know, having made this same mistake.

    Question on Matco nose wheel

    Could stay overnight at 0oh5, Freeman Swank Farms, Butler OH. It’s tent camping, with 3000 ft grass strip, toilet, shower, elec power, short walk into town to restaurants/bar. This is 1/2 hr South of Put-in-bay.

    Question on Matco nose wheel

    If you’d like to make it an even half dozen, let me know when you’ll be going. Phil Wade would make 7. It’ll look like an invasion.

    New Aero Classis 4.00-6 Tire @ Desser

    Dick - is this the tire that shows up when you search online for the 400-6? I notice that the price has gone up a little this year.

    For the 4.00-6 tires, search for tube size 13/500-6. You’ll find both the heavy duty and regular tubes. Pick the HD.

    Awesome new seat in my CTLSi

    105 kt true, or indicated? Mine cruises at about 119 to 120 true, but obviously indicated is lower. If it’s true AS, I wonder if something’s not right in the way the its being calculated. Could whip out your E6B and check it.

    Hurricane Florence

    This is my home field as well. Fortunately, my CTLS is in Elkhart, IN right now, 800’ ASL. Oliver, sorry you’re going through this. Hoping your gear is wet but the rest is OK.

    LSA rules changing??

    I had always thought that the elimination of -12 for the American market was needed to comply with the 120 kt limit. Not so?

    LSA rules changing??

    Maybe we could get -12 flaps with a couple of minor modifications. Ten extra knots (??) at cruise would be lovely.

    Oil Change instructions

    OK, thanks Tom.

    Oil Change instructions

    Roger- after pre-filling the 825016 filter, does it make a mess when you tip it to horizontal to align the threads?

    Flaps and stab question.

    Probably come out smoother, too.
