  1. I just switched to the heavy duty tubes and Matco wheels. So far, so good.
  2. Is there any reason to worry about this? It never crossed my mind.
  3. Periodically the dynon PFD doesn’t shut down when power/avionics is shut down. One has to turn power back on and try powering down again. Question- could this drain the plane battery or does it have its own internal battery? Plane had to be jumped recently and wondering if this could be the culprit.
  4. My CTLS is now part of a flying club and we’re getting some interest from some guys who are in excess of 260 lbs, the per seat limit. What is the issue here, W&B or structural limits of the seat? How big a deal is it if they are 270lbs?
  5. If Ethanol free gas is not available, what is second best for the CT - Avgas or unleaded with ethanol?
  6. I think the answer is more simplistic. Do you want to spend around $80-$90k on a nice plane or do you want to spend $150k on a nice plane? Because the capabilities difference between a 10 year old CT and a brand new CT are marginal.
  7. Nothing beats a tuffjug for refueling. Try one of these and you’ll never go back. Fast and easy and foolproof. Set it down in the fuel tank and the weight releases the valve and empties 5 gals in 45 seconds Tuff Jug TJ1R-2PK Red Gasoline Fuel Container - 5 Gallon Capacity, (Pack of 2) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00UC1SUQS/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_qxA-CbJCDV7KB
  8. Just bought an Odyssey PC310 from Amazon. In stock and arrived in a couple days.
  9. The downside to the LED landing light is it’s pretty weak. Better than no night at all, but just barely.
  10. Ok so looked a little more into it. This Turtle Wax is silicone based, which I have read is not great to use on composite. Anyone have any additional input on this? Thanks, Ben
  11. Yeah I’ve been interested in more info about this as well. I looked into it last year and really wasn’t able to find any good info on it. No operational instructions turned up in my web search.
  12. I have some composiclean, but the instructions says to rinse it off with water, right? Just want to make sure we are talking about the same thing. Are you taking about the cleaning solution or the wax?
