  1. I purchased an older, out of date Icom IC-A4 the other day that was in perfect working order. Since it was from another area, I read the owners manual to see how to change the frequencies and in the manual it explained how to clear the memory to start over. What they DIDN'T say was that if you do that, the unit will be permanently stuck on 118.00 mhz unless you have the program and cables they ONCE supplied and no longer have, to reprogram it. THIS SHOULD HAVE BEEN STATED IN THEIR LITERATURE BEFORE I CLEARED THE MEMORY. I have asked them to either find out where I can have this done OR Replace this unit with something else as a result of THEIR misleading, self destructing instructions and they say they can't and won't help me. Un-Freaking believable! A BIG company like that setting me up to render the unit useless as per their instructions and saying... "Sorry, we can't and won't help you". Just thought I would share this with everyone as a Heads Up if you need to deal with ICOM in the future, you may want to try another option which may or may not be better. That said, does anyone happen to have this old software and cable for the IC-A4 that I could use? Thanks
  2. Tom - So with this serial number: F-09-08-05, Is mine affected? It Doesn't appear to be.
  3. Just Pipe insulation foam and cardboard. Works great!
  4. Does anyone know What Years or serial numbers are effected by the "Stiffer" Ailerons?
  5. email me at djtoddb@yahoo.com so I have your email address to add.
  6. Congrats Poco and welcome to the Club. Look forward to seeing you in Page this year! Are you in Tucson? I am in Mesa. We have a group of flyers that fly every weekend to different Arizona destinations so let me know if you would like to be put on the Flying List. I have plenty of Flying Videos on Youtube that you can view.Just do a search for Todd Bristol on Youtube and you can view them.
  7. I just happened to be browsing some videos today and a video of a plane landing at Marble Canyon popped up on my screen. As I watched it, they showed Hugh's Titan Tornado still sitting there off the runway. It's at time mark 13:30.
  8. I have the same exact problem on my 2009 CTLS. Please keep us posted.
  9. Thanks so much for the write-up Tom so that we can all learn something from this tragic event which could have easily turned out so much worse. THANK GOD you and Rich made it through it and that the insurance is covering your loss. I can only imagine how difficult it was for you to have to keep re-living this incident in your mind and then share your thoughts of the accident in this write-up. I can't say THANK YOU enough for sharing this with us and if we all learn something from this event, it will have not all been in vain! Hope you keep your FLYING options open.
  10. SPOT -ON to both of you, John and Duane !!!
  11. The winds at Monument valley were mostly a rather Stiff Crosswind with a tailwind component. The video looks like the aircraft pitched up prematurely as did the Upwind wing. Once that happened at or below the take-off speed, the plane then became a KITE with not enough Enertia or HP to penetrate the air in a contollable manner. That's my 2 cents as i was there to witness the accident, Video record it, first on scene, and took off later when there was a break in the wind velocity.
  12. Hope you can Kent. I flew my CT from Arizona to Albany and Cape Cod in July. Awesome Trip!
  13. I don't but you can have mine for Half the Price of theirs.
  14. 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.
