  1. Thanks all. Well said Tom
  2. I see where people reference grabbing on to the support bar to get in and out of the CTLS/SW. I use that method myself. I want to do some touch up painting on the mushroom, without leaning on the mushroom, or removing it. Can that support bar support someone who is 150 pounds in a trapeze kind of arrangement leaning over the mushroom? Danny
  3. Loud Periodic Creak While Taxiing

    For the wheel pants, I noticed it was rubbing into the paint on the gear legs. I took some clear fuel line, cut it down the length of the hose, and put it around the upper edge of the wheel pant to create that barrier as well as tightening any wobbling between the leg and the wheel pants. Danny
  4. Mounting of GPS antenna for ADSB in.

    Has FD issued a fleet wide authorization for the GDL 82 in our planes? Did you each have to request an MRA or are you all experimental? Danny

    You flying down?
  6. Garmin SL40 problem

    I'll check the wires on back before I proceed further. Thanks
  7. Garmin SL40 problem

    My aux music jack toggle switch seems to, all of a sudden, be causing background buzzing in a repeating pattern (on off on off) in the headsets. I don't use the aux music jack at all. When i turn the toggle switch to off (down), the sound stops but so does the side tone. Flipping it back up causes the buzz again, but sometimes not. It is becoming more frequent. The sound does not appear to be going out the radio. I guess I want to replace the toggle switch but I can't find a reference as to a part number / source. Can anybody assist in this resolution? Thanks Danny
  8. These guys are indeed arguing for the sake of arguing. One-up-man-ship at its best, or worst. The points have been made and we have all learned about as much as we can on this matter. We had someone on the list a couple of years ago who did that all the time. He finally left the group when no one fell for the taunts. This makes me wish we had a button that allowed us to say "i'm not really reading this thread anymore, and i'd like it to stop appearing in my list of threads to read."
  9. WTB Neuform Prop complete

    My prop is coming up on 1400 hours. From what I'm seeing about the upcoming inspection, there really is no good reason to get the inspection. Therefore I'll be thinking a Neuform or Sensenich also. Danny
  10. Wingtip Repair

    Or how about a number of us chip in and have Frank come over and do a class.
  11. 2007 CTSW $63,900 Off Market!!

    I'd like to go to Roger's place and have him train us for the LSRM Maintenance 3 week class. Plus I'd like to stay in Buckaroo's trailer.

    I wouldn't be happy feeling isolated with no other repair/maintenance services nearby. I have taken the Rotax class and still want help to be nearby. Have you considered that for annual inspections flying it to someone elsewhere? Should you end up in a repair scenario where you can't take the plane to someone, then you could coordinate with a repair person so they know what to bring with them, and then pay their airfare to come to you. Hopefully the annual can be worked into a trip and the repairs would never happen. Hate to see you give up a plane you have worked so hard to come to terms with. When I got my CTLS, I read somewhere that for the first year, you will fight the plane for who is in control. In the second year the plane will decide if you have earned the right to be boss. Danny
  13. Replacement Seat Belts

    I don't see this part number in Scroth's catalog. Anyone else have a more up to date number or even an alternative seat belt that would work in a CTLS? Danny
  14. Other than the seats, that is some seriously ugly stuff.
