    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.

    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.

    Stick on Slip Indicator

    Despite reports to the contrary I can attest to the fact that a yaw string on the windscreen makes a very nice heads up slip indicator. The prop may affect it a small amount but it works pretty well. Doesn't get much cheaper.

    Glide Ratio

    I would think it would depend on what your idle set is. When I first got my CT the idle was about 1950 and I think it definitely increased the L/D.

    Oil Change instructions

    This was a tip from the 2 day rotax inspection course at Lockwood with Dean Vogel. You can use that clip to bypass the ignition and just spin the prop while you sit in the cockpit and monitor the oil pressure.

    IFly 740b installed

    I have a 720 ifly that I hooked up temporarily to my trutrak digiflight II. It would run the autopilot for a few minutes and then lose the track. I talked to the trutrak people but could not get it to work consistently . Worked fine with the garmin 296. What output settings are you guys using? Any suggestions? I might try it again. Thanks

    Outside air temp probe placement

    When you say under rhe flap do you mean inder the wing fore of the flap? A little more detail would be helpful for me . Did you partially remove the wing to run the wires? Thanks

    Dynon D100 to replace BMA

    I am getting ready to replace my small 5 inch blue mountain avionics efis with a Dynon D100. Biggest question is where to put the magnetometer. Does anyone know: Where is the magnetometer for the old BMA. Wing? Could one switch them out since the wiring is already done? Should it just be mounted under the passenger seat? Thanks in advance.
