    Heard about this? https://www.flightdesign.com/flight-design-airplanes-u-s-desert-oct-2017/
  4. Hi Mike. Many thanks for stopping by. Was planning to go before weather switched to moody. Will see how it looks like Saturday morning. Event is only a two hour flight from my place, so chances there will be a window at some point.

  6. Portable GPS

    Tried Air Nav Pro in Bulgaria, Romania, Hungary, Austria, Germany, Luxembourg, Belgium, England, and of course France where I stay and it worked fine all the way. The only thing is that you will have to pay almost every single option because the price you pay for the app is only the right to use it without ads, but For maps, databases, flight plans, 3D or anything, you will have to pay for each and everything. Also, they won't care should you need support and won't reply to your emails nor will they answer your questions. That is my experience with Air Nav Pro. I don't know the other ones.
  7. Portable GPS

    Many thanks to all for sharing your thoughts and experiences on this GPS topic. I do have an iPad with Air Nav Pro app installed. Any other apps worth your recommendation?
  8. Portable GPS

    Was browsing the GPS conversations and noticed they go back to some time ago, reason why I am seekng advice on a portable GPS nowadays. I am considering installation of one of the following which seem to be quite close to each other in terms of price: -Garmin 795 -Garmin 695 -Avmap EKP V What would the CT community out there recommed? What is the major benefit of the 3D functionality of the 795? Will it replace an artificial horizon for instance? Seen pictures of the Avmap showing a moving map and other pictures showing artificial horizon, does the Avmap do both? And can it do them on the same screen or do you have to juggle between various functionalities? Any thoughts on reliability and ease of use? Many thanks in advance

  10. Another fuel tube question?

    Came across this video and wondered if the Header Tank solution can help with the tank imbalance issue. Any thoughts? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i_sVFpfxOuc

    Looks like a cool tip. Good to know. Will definitely try it. Thanks.
  12. Lower compression after oil change

    Roger Lee, many thanks for your reassuring words. My gratitude goes to all those who contributed and shared their wisdom and experience, whether it is to this question of compression or to all other questions I have asked since I joined. I have to say that I always got my questions answered. I also benefited a lot from reading other available discussions. Also, thanks to all those who cared and stopped to read.
  13. Lower compression after oil change

    Given you took the time to kndly share your thoughts, I thought I owe you this little update/feedback: Measurement of sparkplugs tightening showed they were not loose. The guys at the club did the oil change and tightened the new sparkplugs to 20 N when the engine was still warm (very warm actually) so now and when engine is cold sparkplugs show they are tightened even higher than the recommended 20N. the thought around here about compression diffrerence may be due to oil difference. The CT was bought second hand so we don't know what was the previous oil. The oil used for the change is Yacco. They used 2 litres of this one: https://www.yacco.com/product/222-avx-500-4t-sae-10w40/ and they topped up with this one: https://www.yacco.com/product/300-avx-1000-2t/
  14. Lower compression after oil change

    Gentlemen, many thanks for all your valuable contributions. Will explore the lose sparkplugs route.
  15. Lower compression after oil change

    Burped warm as well as cold and the difference with before is there in both cases and it is definitely clear.
