  1. Where is a good place to purchase replacement brake pads for Matco wheels?
  2. Good question...anyone have an estimate?
  3. When it comes to an engine overhaul or replacement, does anyone have some recent experience or knowledge of current costs? Would $18k for a new engine still be a reasonable ballpark?
  4. Last year FD sent me the image files for the little flip book and I took it to FedEx Office and had them print one. Not too hard to do.
  5. Thanks for all the input. FWIW emailed Arian at FD and he also advised to use blue loctite. Let me run one more thing by you guys...this never happened with my prior CT (2008 model) but this newer CT (2011 model) has some staining / burnishing behind the exhaust pipe. It was this way when I got it. also the electrical wire used for jumping, the rubber sleeve part is a little melted. Is this normal and if not, what could be the cause?
  6. Yeah I think that’s the missing link. Did not realize it needed loctite. Thanks guys!
  7. We have a CTLS with the Tundra wheels. We recently replaced some bolts on the inside that had fallen out (about a week ago). Since then, they have fallen out again. You can see the missing bolt on the side with a single bolt. The same bolt is missing on the other wheel pant as well. Are we supposed to put a nut on the bolt or is there something else we are missing here to help these stay on?
  8. And that’s why after first buying a CTLS, I started a flying club with the CTLS and then a Cirrus SR22. Best plane for each mission, without costing a fortune.
  9. It ended up being a settings issue. Got it working again. Thanks
  10. Not the easiest to land but once you get good at it, you can probably land anything
  11. We are dealing with this right now too. One of our members lost a good amount of power on a recent flight. We cleaned out debris from a few different points: gascolator, fuel filter. We are suspecting contaminated fuel but no conclusion yet.
  12. Our club's Cirrus has a way to supply power for the purpose of powering the avionics on the ground with the engine off while not draining the battery. We'd like to create something similar for the new CT since the Dynon Skyview is more advanced. Could supplying some power the same way one would jump start the plane be a way to do that using the wire under the cowling for positive and muffler for negative? or any other way other than that?
