    Who's going to Bryce Canyon? Who's going to Page? Is there a LIST of people that are going to the 11th annual Fly-in? If not, can we start one? I am going to BOTH destinations... Who Else? I posted a separate thread about this a few days ago but did not get any responses. What time are people planning to arrive at Bryce? Do we have a Van there? Is there someone "in charge" with an itinerary or are we just Winging it, Pun intended.

    See you guys there! I sold the Zenith 601 and bought a CTLS.
  8. As a CT owner for just over 6 months now, my experiences confirm that things can go wrong while forcing a landing without bleeding off excees speed AND due to the NARROW landing gear, it is more difficult to "stick" the landings at higher speeds during a crosswind /slip landing. The other aircraft that I have owned had almost DOUBLE the gear width and that distance between them made it more difficult for the upwind wing to rise which in turn kept the acft on the ground.

    Airventure 2018

    You may want to consider flying into Fon Du Lac as it is much less congested and I hear they have a daily bus TO and FROM Osh. We actually flew into West Bend, WI and rented a car for only $180 for the entire week. Here we are in West Bend getting ready to return home on Saturday. Notice there is nobody here.
  10. Does anyone know why the Shoulder Harnesses loosen up by themselves and is there a FIX for that???
  11. I posted this a few weeks ago but did not get any response so I am not sure it actually posted. I have purchased the uAvionix Echo and SkyFYX ADSB set and wanted to see photos of the install if anyone has installed these units. Thanks.
  12. Does anyone have any photos or videos of the nose wheel being removed? My GoPro has revealed that my Nose Wheel is pretty unbalanced and I need to balance it.. CTLS Nose Wheel out of balance.mp4
  13. OK - The Nose wheel has been balanced. See the Video. CTLS - Nose Wheel - Before and After.mp4
  14. Thanks Roger, but just opening the Hangar Door at 110 Degrees breaks a sweat.... you know that! Enjoy your trip!

    Safety Belts - Revisted

    Has anyone installed and/or have photos of BETTER safety Belts used for the CTLS?

    Safety Belts - Revisted

    I contacted CROW yesterday and they said to send them some photos along with the lengths of what we already have so they do not have to re-invent the wheel. Send it to info@crowsafety.com Each harness was only going to be around $80

    Safety Belts - Revisted

    Great, Thanks Bill. If there is anyone that has actually purchased these for use in their CTSW or CTLS, Please CHIME IN and let me know if they work better than the STOCK ones that won't stay tight. Thanks!
  18. I have a few chips and put some Epoxy on them but need some paint for touch-up. Anyone know what type and where to get the paint?

    Help with Landings

    So.... I have about 8 hours now flying my new (used) CTLS and my landings are all over the board. Some are good, some are... Less than good. I received some great reference materials from Eric Swisher (thanks Eric) regarding the airspeed numbers for downwind, Base, and Final. My question /poll is to find out from others the REAL numbers they use including their Flap settings. My past flying has been with a Zenith 701, Zenith 601 and Titan Tornado which are pretty draggy. I usually flew them a bit high and a bit fast and just "chopped" the throttle 2' above the ground and they just settle in. This approach has me WAY High and fast with 15 Deg flaps in the CT and I am landing pretty long. Also, What are the Max Speeds allowed for the 15, 30 and 35 Deg Flap deployment?
  20. Has anyone else had any trouble getting the correct Oil pressure reading on your Dynon D120? My pressures were reading High so I ordered another Kavlico Sender to see if that would eliminate the problem but I still get the same readings. Upon further investigation, it turns out that the Dynon system was incorrectly configured in the OIL PRESSURE Menu and was set to #3 instead of #5 where it should be. This setting gave pretty normal readings however the Oil Pressure always read 30 psi when the engine was OFF. After setting the Dynon to the #5 option, the static pressure dropped to ZERO (good) but the running pressure only went to 30 psi. I tried this with BOTH Kavlico sending units (new one and old one) and thy were exactly the same. I even hooked up a mechanical oil Pressure gauge and everything reads perfect. I have been working with Roger on this , along with Dynon and we are all stumped. I have checked the wiring, checked the grounds and we cannot solve this problem. Dynon suggested I go back to the VDO sender and use option #1 to see if that works. Since they are not available locally, I ordered one and it will be a few more days until it arrives. Any Suggestions out there????
  21. Nope, nobody told me of any resister needed, not even Dynon. Anyways, I just hooked up an old VDO sender and set the setting to ONE and it works fine now.
  22. Yes I am sure it is not 30 psi. Roger tested it last week with a mechanical gauge and I tested it yesterday with another separate mechanical gauge and the readings were consistent.

    FYI - It has been reported that Ruby's only has 2 rooms left in our "BLOCK".

    IFly 740 question

    I will have to check this out on my next flight, but the Wind direction arrow / speed and TAS seemed to work but maybe the info is erroneous since the iFly740b wasn't hooked up to the Dynon. I think this will warrant a call to Dynan for details.

    Prop Issue -- Cosmetic or Serious?

    Since you have had both props, does the Sensenich prop perform better than the Neuform prop?
