  1. Thanks guys and thank you Roger for further instructions over the phone on Saturday. it was the sending unit. They sent the wrong one to me, but Roger told me how to make it work.
  2. How many hours on your CT?

    Brookfield MO 64628 I adjoin the airport for 1/2 mile on the east side of the airport.
  3. Thanks guys, I'll check it out
  4. After flying for 45 minutes, I added full power to climb higher. The high oil pressure warning light came on. I reduced RPM's and the light went off. The pressure on the Dynon peaked at around 100 lbs. I flew for maybe two hours, at 5200 RPM's, and the pressure was fine. But, before reaching home, I had to continue to reduce power to keep the oil pressure down. The last thirty minutes of the flight, I had to keep the RPM's down to 4,600. I didn't check the log, but I think I have less than 25 hours on the oil and filter change. During that time, I had one flight that required me to put in 10 gallons of 100LL. On the flight where the problem started, I had added 21 gallons of 100 LL. I'm going to change the oil and filter when I get time, as well as cut the filter open. During my previous oil and filter change, I had flown 43 hours, without out the need to add oil, and filter looked good. I had probably used about 30 gallons of 100 LL, but like the week ends flight, it was mixed with 91 octane. What are your thoughts on what is going on?
  5. It was 4 degrees, when I started the plane today. It took a while for it to get to 124. On climb out the temp started dropping fast. I put flaps at 30 and reduced power. Temp started rising slowing but would not reach 124 until I went flaps 40. In level flight, I had to keep it at 45 knots to keep it warm. After an hour and a half of local flying we landed with the temp going down to 105 on final. The Cherokee that I use to have, had plates that attached on the front of the engine to keep it warm in the winter. Is there something that I need to install, to keep the engine at operating temp. Thanks in advance !
  6. I put a gen3 spot in my mothers car. I leave it turned on all the time. When I pull it up on my iPad, it shows very many of her daily trips. So many that I have a very hard time finding the newest trip. I would like to erase trips so the clutter of previous trips is not displayed.
  7. New GoPro products...

    My wife is picking up a Phantom 3 for me while I hunt this afternoon. Is there a mount that would let me use the drone's GoPro?p

    My family has a love for the mountains, I would really like to fly your area along with southern Utah. Who would ever thought that I cold look at mount pics, setting in a deer blind. Great pics!

  11. Guys, thanks for your help. My plane is a 2006 CTSW. I had already blown on both fuel camps, and they seemed fine. The plane was flown ball centered, except while we were looking for my mother's car. While looking for the car, I flew right wing low, so two of us could see out the right side. But, I had commented to my wife, on the trip from Dallas, that the ball didn't seem right to me. In the past, I've always paid close attention to fuel levels in flight. The site tubes on this plane are fairly dark, dark enough that I have not been able to read them. I mentioned this fact to a guy; he said I didn't need to worry about it, since the tanks always drained the same. He also said that the plane would fly with an empty tank. When I heard the second statement, I wondered how it could continue to run if it was sucking air. Well, dumb on my part, because I should have got the book out. I had also wondered if a small flashlight would help when trying to read the tubes. I tried it today with a flashlight and I could read them easily.
  12. Friday my wife and I flew from North central Missouri to a Dallas suburb. In a little over 4 hours of flying, the left tank had 3 gallons left and the right tank had 13 gallons remaining. On our return trip yesterday, fuel remaining per tank was about the same as it had been on Friday. I,ve only owned the plane about a month. The day I bought it, I flew it home 2.5 hours. Tanks were equal when I arrived at my home airport. Without looking at my log book, I think I've put about 15 hours on the plane on local flights. Except for the Dallas flights, the tanks have always stayed equal. Shortly before we arrived home, we learned that my elderly mother had been missing for a little over a day . After speaking to folks on the ground, I put 5 gallons in the low tank, giving me a total of 21 gallons. We flew for a couple hours, looking for her car at places we thought she might go. The engine ran rough for a very few seconds, the quit running. I advanced the throttle full, and leveled the wings. At 500 AGL, we were going to land very soon. I had started to trim the plane when the engine restarted. When we landed at the nearest airport, the left tank was dry, the right tank had over ten gallons in it. Soooo, what do you think is causing the uneven fuel feed. BTW, a lady saw a post that our daughter had put on Facebook, and called to tell us that my mother was at her home. Credit card charges, to my mom's card, showed that she had driven at least 100 miles. She was found just a few miles away.
  13. How many hours on your CT?

    666 hours on a new to me 2006. I bought it a little over two weeks ago and I think I've put 18 hours on it.
