  1. PARTS? REPLACEMENT FUEL CAP?

    I wish it was that simple! Embarrassed to say, I left the cap off, resting on the wing after fueling. Pulled the plane out, taxied and did some touch and goes before I noticed a stream off the trailing edge of the right wing (in a right turn). I had been up around 30-minutes before noticing. Upon landing, I couldn't believe that hardly any fuel was missing! T
  2. PARTS? REPLACEMENT FUEL CAP?

    Thank you! I never knew it would be so easy! I don't even want to say "WHY" I need it!
  3. PARTS? REPLACEMENT FUEL CAP?

    Does anyone have a line on the best place to buy CTLS parts? Specifically I am now in need of a fuel cap. Tom
  4. -12 Degree Flap Microswitch

    What is the so-called "favorite pitch"?
  5. SKYVIEW GPS MAP

    BY THE WAY, THIS PROBLEM IS SOLVED. As it turns out, I learned something very important. When you turn on your PDF inside a hangar (or elsewhere, when it can't acquire a GPS signal), it gives up and after a while will not even try to acquire, hence the the "NO GPS POSITION SOURCE" message. All you have to do is power it down completely, then turn it back on in an open area. However, if it stays on after being closed in, it will "give up" trying. An interesting anomaly. In my other glass cockpits (such as my Cirrus SR22), if I turn on the GPS, while inside the hangar, it will continually search for a GPS source as I roll it outside.
  6. SKYVIEW GPS MAP

    One day, all of a sudden, upon powering up, I get an error message on Skyview map. It simply says "No GPS Position Source" (SEE PHOTO). No rhyme or reason. No updates, no changes in wiring, no loose connections, no recent maintenance - nothing - just this error message. Never acquired position throughout entire flight. Autopilot grayed out as well. Alstry to enter map menu with joystick, nothing comes up. What the heck? Any ideas? OK, one confession, I did enter Setup Menu to put AutoPilot into "expert" control mode (from "Simplified", then switched it back.) But I am almost positive I did not screw with any other settings. Does anyone know how to get back my GPS? Tom
