  1. What I learned after my first LSRM course session

    http://www.sportaviationspecialties.com/LSA_Repairman_Courses.htm Andy took this course. They are not scheduling courses but you can email them and get on a list. They will schedule a course when they get 8 commits. Rich
  2. Replacement Seat Belts

    No. The belts are quite thick so one might have to loosen the attachment points to pass the belt through. You could get a different buckle but this one allow the addition of anti-submarine 5th point if desired. They are definitely an improvement.
  3. Replacement Seat Belts

    These are nice. About 165 shipped for a pair. The 2x2 utv restraint. http://www.parts123.com/parts123/yb.dll?parta~partsort~1~cadeikca
  4. parking brake issue

    Twice yesterday while landing on grass shortly after touchdown the parking brake came on spontaneously. I recognized it and turned it off. First time I thought I must have hit it with my hand. Second time I am sure I did not. Any thoughts? Maybe I didnt have it firmly in the off position? Rich
  5. iFly

    Old topic but I would also be interested in what you used to block the top window etc. Rich
  6. Canada, Cuba, Central America, and beyond

    Glad you guys are well. I thought maybe you had run out of fuel availability and left the plane in Alaska after that last post. Will put a trip like that on my bucket list Rich

  11. Grand Rapids Technology

    I don't need anything but I want something. I was looking at the GRT Sport ex. For a little less than 2 grand you get flight display, basic engine monitoring and moving map. Looks really nice. How hard would it be to get LOA for one of these? Anyone have experience with GRT? Rich

  13. Savannah, Ga "demo ride"?

    Jon, I'll trade you a ride in my CTSW for a ride in the Blackhawk. Actually it's been 30 years since I have been in a Blackhawk. (Ex 6th Cav Brigade Surgeon) If we ever get some good weather I could probably get down there from Aiken, SC for a demo. Rich
  14. Oshkosh 2017

    Tom I have been looking at GRT a little bit. The Sport EX looks nice with a one piece efis, moving map and engine monitor. Would love to get a report. Now they have this http://grtavionics.com/hud2.html I have no financial interest in GRT Have a great time. Rich
  15. Garmin/Trutrak digiflight IIvs question/problem

    First update report: Pulled the panel and checked continuity between data out on Garmin and data in (pin 17) on trutrak. It was good. Next step used reference : http://trutrakap.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/03/DigiflightIIInstalManual1.pdf Made sure garmin was nmea out baud 4800. Stumbled through menu on autopilot and found it was set on 9600. Trutrak appears to be receiving now as HDG has flashing plus sign. Unable to check in the air today but will post after. Rich
