    Pattern speeds/power settings

    This stol landing article talks a lot about level wing attitude for spot landings. I have been practicing this slow approach stuff at altitude. Probably not the technique to use on a check ride. Stall warning horn blaring might upset the examiner. https://backcountrypilot.org/stol-tips/stol-tips-attitude-flying Rich

    having Flap problems? check this out!

    Have recently had a couple of episodes of flaps working on pre-takeoff but not on approach. Flaps failed to move from 0 to 15. indicator flashing. Could someone summarize the troubleshooting for this problem if it persists? Will try to gather more info. First will fly some simulated approaches at altitude and see if rpm makes a difference. Thanks in advance. 2005 ctsw, Rich

    Need a new door seal 2007 CTSW

    Silly question. What's the best location to put the cut spot in the seal. The old one is in the middle of the bottom of the door.

    Need a new door seal 2007 CTSW

    Thanks Bob. When you crimped it did you crimp it fully from top to bottom or just the bottom 1/2 , 1/3? I measured the width of the door edge and it was about 1/16. I would prefer to use this and not return it for the 1/8th. Thanks again. Anybody else?

    Need a new door seal 2007 CTSW

    I ordered this 1120A411 from Mcmaster Carr. It appears too wide. It is for 1/4 inch wide edge. They have a 1120A211 that is 1/8 inch wide. Seems like that would fit better. Any experience or advice? https://www.mcmaster.com/#catalog/124/3590/=1dzxc9d Thanks

    Where do you hang or place your headsets when not in use in a CTSW?

    Short / soft field

    Ed, Climbs like a banshee with just me even in the heat. Get spoiled. But put a 200 lb.er in the right seat and it climbs , but more like a few hundred feet per minute.

    dynamic prop balance?

    Andy, Where did you get your prop balanced? Rich

    Short / soft field

    Snoopy, How do you do taking off with 2 people with that short field? I can land short but Seems like my CTSW does not like to climb in the heat at higher weights.

    What would you think about making panel sections? My center panel needs repair.
