    Prop balance question?

    Do you find it makes a noticeable difference in the composite small props?

    Prop balance question?

    We have a guy that has just started doing these and business is good for him. I’ll probably get it done as well. For $200 if it is unbalanced at all should be worth it!

    Prop balance question?

    Yes I agree but with our small blade is it worth the $200 to do it?

    Fuel starvation

    My CTSW is a brilliant Light Sport aircraft that I really cannot find a better example. There fast, carry a lot, beautifully built, quality, pretty and roomy. Just don’t fly on less than 10 or 12 gallons of gas until you learn the idiocy’s of operating with low fuel load of say less than 12 gallons! I honestly cannot find a better machine for fun, sport, crisp handling etc. They are like a fun sports car only in the sky! Also very safe!

    Prop balance question?

    We have a new hanger owner who is a IA who is doing mainly prop balancing. He says most aircraft owners are niave about the benefits of having their props balanced. For $200 he’ll balance your propeller. I watched today as he did two Cessna 180’s in which I heard the feedback that their ride was much smoother. I asked him about doing my FD CTSW and he said that I could very well benefit from this procedure. Thoughts???
  8. Anyone try these?

    Fuel starvation

    If you indicate say zero fuel in the left tube and say 6 gallons indicated in the right tube and you make a skidding left turn you will throw fuel out to the far right end of the long flat right tank and probably see a empty right tube followed by an immediate loss of engine power. Six or even 8 gallons of usable fuel does not mean you’ll have say and hour of flying left. An uncoordinated turn can steal fuel with engine failure followed by a forced landing followed by a re-appearance of the fuel in the tube while sitting at the of field setting. Believe me I know!🤔

    Another oil temp question?

    I’m turning 70 this December 9th. In the 70’s and 80’s as a flight instructor who enjoyed teaching I finally quit flying after 5000 hours to do a real paying job with a retirement. Then two years ago I heard about light sport with no medical. I’m a 100% disabled in country Vietnam Veteran who was convinced would never qualify for a flight physical again. Once again energized and motivated to fly again I bought a CTSW. This purchased was the Best Buy I’ve ever done thanks to this forum convincing me to settle on the FD line of planes! I’m really happy with this brilliant aircraft! Thanks everyone!

Why? My concerns and questions are always sorted out by very bright informative and experienced people! Thanks everyone!

    Another oil temp question?

    So back to my question that no one answered if you cruising cross country and hitting 250 what actions could one try to change the scenario? Would backing out of 5500 rpm to say 5200 help or a short climb to cooler temps or a decent keeping rpm constant at 5500 or dumping rpm??
