    I nosed over my CT - I think its totaled?

    For me it’s like a car. Your biggest nightmare is a rebuild. Things will never be right again and the stigma alone will kick your ass forever. If I’m fortunate enough to crawl away from my rig following an accident I’ll arrange things accordingly! 😱
  2. Two were on top of the top module holding the ignition module on and the blue one was sandwiched in between the two modules. The blue one that was between the modules has no metal contact except the bolt going down the middle. What are these please? Thanks

    What are these three wires for?

    Shipping to them approximately $25 slow 7 to 10 days, $45 medium 7 days and $100 faster 4 to 7 days via US Postal. They email you progress along the way. Three day max for in house repair. They return item UPS 3 day. Cost is $485 for both plus shipping your looking at $550 total. They say they inhance the units with even improved operations over the OEM originals. Example they introduce soft start features that makes the need for the extra wire set up unnecessary. For a little extra they will replace the 6 pin wire and plug set up. They return email questions almost immediately along the way. Just be aware of the time differences. Payments super safe and easy via Pay Pal following there checkout procedure. 5 star experience and the engine seems smoother than before.

    Oh yes would one benefit from placing rubber isolators between the modules and the mounts?

    I nosed over my CT - I think its totaled?

    My friend just built his Rans 7 and last summer he got gas and walked into the FBO to pay and in the corner of his Eye saw his little dream plane flying. He thought someone had stole it. A dust devil had lifted her 30 feet in the air and down hard on its back. Totaled.

    Not getting rid of me so easily

    I bought my 07 CTSW almost 3 years ago not knowing anything about LSA airplanes. Turns out to be the best num nuts purchase I’ve ever made! This forum has made the difference between a bad experience and an awesome one! Thanks everyone!

    Engine quit in flight

    I wonder if the new Flight Design Super Sport will have a fuel selector and header tank? Maybe just a fuel selector?

    Engine quit in flight

    Yup, my left tube went empty. My right showed approximately 8 gallons. I immediately became concerned and cranked the plane in a left turn towards 8U8. Straitened out and engine quit like right now. Looked at the right tube and wallah empty. Landed her in fresh Alphalpha field and behold 8 gallons appears back in right tube. The tanks are flat and long. You can sling fuel out very fast by skidding. My engine quit almost immediately upon recognizing momentary loss of fuel in the line. I would bet money that you may of been bouncing fuel back and forth by rudder action against the bottom of the tube. Cool pictures!

    Carbs Rebuilt

    Roger thought 800 hours was maybe ok but not an emergency. He Said he’d do mine for $400 and a 4 or so turn around. I’m getting ready to ship mine since my Ignition modules are being repaired now.

    Seatbelt reinforcement

    I think the CT is an easy plane to land except for full flaps. Never liked the feel of all that drag and pitch change. It does have its place tho!
  16. I’m trying to unplug the two bottom plugs but cannot reach to tabs on the white plugs. Help? Seems to me you need a 180 degree bent blade to pull upwards against the tab.

    What were the signs first felt or observed of the flutter problem? Have others had this?

    Bad mag check today!

    I guess it’s an ignition module. Anyway I went to start her this morning and she wouldn’t fire up. So again I got a bag of ice which is easy to find around here. First tho I did the Roger recommendation of wiggling the module wires. No help so I iced her down for 5 minutes and bam she fires. I go out to the run up area and doing the mag check when I select number two she immediately dies. WTF!! I waited a bit and restarted and tried the number two ignition again and she was fine. I then taxied her to the hanger and could hear and feel a rumbling sensation. This should be an easy one for the experts I hope! Also how much $$ am I looking at and the best source for those parts? Thanks everyone!

    One year warranty and three day turn around. Shipping will take the time. Still thinking this over.

    Then I asked him about the soft start feature on the new ones and here’s his reply. Hello David, When the male 6 pole connector from the Ducati CDI unit has 6 terminals, than you have the soft start function. When the male 6 pole connector has 5 terminals than you don’t have the soft-start function. But… When we repair/overhaul the units we also adjust them that they give a good spark at lower rpm (start rpm) it’s not a soft start function but it has about the same outcome. Best regards, Robert Carmo

    Bad mag check today!

    Here’s Robert from Carmo’s email response back to me this morning. Hello Dave, We normally repair / overhaul those units both because they lived the same life... Please put them in a box to us (not in an envelope) so they are more protected against damages. Also please keep the package value under $35,- otherwise we have to pay import tax when we receive your package. We have fixed prices for the repair/overhaul service, see THIS LINK. Because you live outside the EU, you do not have to pay the VAT. See THIS LINK for our repair form which you can put in the box with the units.

The ignition modules are giving me problems I would like to send them in and have them tested and then rebuilt if necessary. Can you advise me as to how I will do this and what is the cost for each one? Is it possible that I would only have one bad one ? Also I am in Montana in the United States what would be the approximate turnaround time ?
