  1. I had this exact sound with a crack in the wing root tape. I removed the tape, cleaned the residue with goo gone and never put the tape back on.
  2. This is so great Andrew! Definitely made my day already!
  3. I’ve always used Foreflight to do the W&B. Works great. Kent
  4. I went with the shadow look. I thought it came out nice.
  5. I love doing 30 flap takeoffs. Solo I would get airborne in 280 feet and with another person On board it was 400. I could never come close to those numbers with 15 flaps. caveat: I wouldn’t do this on windy/gusty days.
  6. I bet they make a 2-seat part 23 F2 that is IFR certified and with a tremendous useful load capability.
  7. If I understood it right, it will be both LSA and EASA/Part 23 certified. The Part 23 version might have some differences in airspeed and/or useful load and maybe 915 powered. I could be way off though. Kent
  8. They rounded the rudder as well. Nice!
  9. A cording to my brother, Frank sold his Husky a few years ago. If you don’t reach him, I can post a request on the Husky forum.
  10. Goof off works incredibly well on that tape. Just don’t let it touch your vinyl decals.
  11. This is an interesting take of the ‘impossible turn.’
  12. May have SAVED my life once. Climbed out of Felts Field in a Luscombe when the engine quit. Straight ahead was about as horrible as you could imagine. Turned, kept speed up while in the turn and landed halfway down the runway. 500’ was plenty of altitude. I remember the wind was down the runway at least 15 knots.
  13. I bought them from Lockwood. Yeah, they were in the $2000 range. It SEEMS like a lot of 2006-07 CTsw owners have had to do the same replacement. When it first started to happen, I sent the modules to Lockwood to be tested. They came back saying they were fine. When it happened again, I just got the new modules. Never an issue after that. I sure loved the SW. Sad to have sold it, but I can’t have two airplanes at once. I’m monogamous when it comes to airplanes (and spouses). Kent
  14. I had to replace both modules on my CTsw when it wouldn’t start. The soft start modules did the trick. Never had any issues after that. kent
  15. I worked with Tom and Arian to get an MRA for a Schroth seatbelt upgrade for the CTsw. Search the forum here for information on part number. The total cost for two with rotary buckles was around $1000 and took 2 months for them to build. The belts were a huge improvement. Flight Design USA has the MRA information. Kent
  16. Thanks! We flew by your airport on the delivery flight. Definitely must come see you!
  17. What an adventure! The CT is quite the adventure machine for sure. Nice way to break-in your new license. Good Job! Next time I’ll fly along side! Kent
  18. Can’t wait to join you again this spring if you don’t mind slowing down a bit so I can keep up with you in the Husky!
  19. SOLD to a wonderful gentleman in San Antonio, TX. I’m going to miss it!
  20. I bet it was a fluke. You shouldn't need to push two buttons — although I don’t have your setup.
  21. Here’s a great thread on Huskies: https://backcountrypilot.org/community/forum/latest/talk-to-me-about-a-husky-23739
  22. It’s been fun so far. It’s a super easy taildragger to fly. Coming from the CT, I really didn’t want to give up anything in range, and the Husky is pretty close in that department. I think the Husky is overkill in performance for where I live here in NY, but we’re looking forward to taking it to the Husky fly-in which is in Idaho this summer. There is a great forum like this one for Husky fliers at www.flyhusky.com. I’m enjoying it so far, although the plane is currently getting some ‘northern’ modifications (controllable oil cooler door, Reiff heater, belly pod and ADS-B). Feel free to message me. I can put you in touch with my brother who knows the Husky market very well. Kent
  23. Congrats! That is such a good feeling, isn’t it?!
