  1. The Monument Valley Runway is a decent runway, plenty wide, unless you have a stiff crosswind with a tailwind component. One interesting thing to note is the location of the Pilots Lounge which may have caused tremendous turbulence over the runway at that spot with the wind out of the East as it was.
  2. I arrived about 3 min after the crash and the fuel was flowing pretty good out of the Wing tube, Here it is still dribbling out almost an hour later 20191017_132228.mp4
  3. A walk around the crash site 20191017_131917.mp4
  4. I am sure everyone has checked the weather already for the Southwest area and it looks absolutely Awesome for the entire week! What a differencce a year makes.
  5. Is anyone bringing a computer on this trip? I will be shooting some GoPro video on this trip and need a way to download the Files from my camera to my 250GB HD.
  6. For those of US going to Bryce Canyon on Monday, What time are WE planning to arrive so we can all jump in the Shuttle and head for the Hotel???
  7. FYI - David McNeil is a friend of mine and is NOT going as he just started a new job.
  8. I added this Clamp to hold the headset to prevent it from falling
  9. Just seeing if anyone has any good Cup Holder ideas, Pen Holders, Tablet holders, etc. that give easy access during flight.
  10. I recently completed a 5000+ Mile Cross country trip in July and used Flight Following the majority of the time. I was asked several times by the controllers what my EQUIPMENT Code was and what type of aircraft I was in. I didn't know the code and it was apparent that LIGHT SPORT was really not in their vocabulary. For those that use Flight following, I would be curious to know what EQUIPMENT CODES you use and what type of aircraft verbiage they are looking for from us. Thanks.
  11. I just returned from a 30 + day Cross Country trip from Phoenix - Cape Cod - Oshkosh - and Back to Phoenix and put 64 Hours on this trip. I am in the process of changing the Oil and Plugs and need a few suggestions on where to find some of these products locally if available. * Wacker P12 - anti seize for the plugs or equivalent * Best price and location to order the DCPR7E Spark Plugs * Crush Washer for the Oil Tank drain plug * Torque Specs for the Spark Plugs * Torque Specs for the Magnetic Oil Plug
  12. I just finished flying from Phoenix Arizona to Albany New York and tested the flaps at different angles and I confirmed what Roger Lee told me. While it -6 I would cruise at 104 at 5 gallons per minute, I would then switch the flap to full up which one of the few more degrees. The airspeed indicator with then briefly read 105 but within 5 Seconds go back to 104 with a slight but noticeable pitch High attitude which caused it to go back to 104. It seems that anything past -6 will just increase the angle of attack while inducing more drag
  13. Does anyone have the information or a link to the info used to program the flaps? I have called Flight Design twice and have left messages but nobody calls me back. I have already spoke with Roger and would have him do it but he is OUT for the Summer. I also need the switches. Any help would be appreciated.
