    Tell me about Decalin

    Tell me about Decalin

    It says oxygen sensor should be cleaned every 20 hours when running this. I wonder if 25 would suffice to coincide with oil change interval of running 100ll?

    Tantalizing new engines

    That’s awesome. Rotax engines are far more advanced than the competition and I would favor them hands down all things being equal. I guess that means mogas as well prescribed for these planes. Which probably presents a logistical problem unless more airports start offering the fuel in the right octane. Tried to see if this could be done at my home airport and hit a wall of red tape. Dealing with a few jugs is not a big deal with a fuel sipping LSA but probably not as practical with bigger horsepower planes with large fuel tanks.

    Baggage compartment tie down?

    Must have overlooked them - thanks!
  5. Baggage in the CTLS baggage compartment needs to be secured, but what connections are in there to tie something down with some bungee cords or something like that? I didn’t see any obvious connection points.

    A couple questions

    Are you talking about the actual lock on the doors? Or somewhere else? I might as well grease any and all areas that would benefit from this stuff.

    Something like this? Super Lube 97008 Silicone Lubricating Brake Grease with PTFE, 8 oz Tube, Translucent White https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0081JEBFC/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_tai_HFmABb31AE8B4

    A couple questions

    Thanks. I’ve already got wd40. Do you know whether this would be safe to use sparingly?
  12. Anyone know where could I get replacement springs for the small sliding windows? Also is there some sort of lubricant that could be applied to help the windows slide a little better? I keep having to add a little air to one tire every few weeks. Would it be a bad idea to add a little green slime or something like that to seal up whatever is allowing air to escape?

    prop covers

    prop covers

    My plane came with prop sleeves/covers. under what conditions would these be used? Anytime its kept outside? or are there certain kind of weather conditions or climates that are particularly concerning for the Nueform prop? Thanks

    LSA rules changing??

    Let’s hope FD does whatever it takes to increase gross weight limits for existing planes, when the opportunity arrives
