    iFly 740b Install

    I have the raw heat control relocation part. What brand and color paint did you guys use to get it anywhere close to the mushroom color?

    Port Clinton 2019

    This was discussed awhile back and I thought that it would be better to have its own thread. Who all would be interested in meeting up in Port Clinton, Ohio (KCPW) and flying the Lake Erie Islands this summer?

    Prop Issue -- Cosmetic or Serious?

    Has anyone sent their Nueform prop to FDUSA for inspection and or repair? If so, how did it go as far as cost and wait time?
  4. Tip

    No fuel crossfeed.

    Your plane has a fuel selector valve, right?

    Question on Matco nose wheel

    MEHenck will want to be included. Maybe we could make it a two day gathering and fly to all the islands.

    No fuel crossfeed.

    The early 2008 LS planes were shipped without 90 degree elbows at the wing root. The newer planes are using a spring in the gas line instead of the elbow. Look at and feel the gas line through the sight tube holes for a pinched line. I don’t know the physics of it all, but a pinched line at the wingroot will act like you are discribing.

    Replacement screws/bolts

    Fastenal is a good place to buy small quantities.
  11. My Pennsylvania group (3 planes) made the flyin in 2015. We got ahead of the weather that stranded Bill and Andy for a week on the trip home. We flew from daylight till dark which is only 11 hours in October. That year, pilots for California didn’t make the flyin because of weather. Last year, our group flew to Paige the week after Labor Day and spent a week. We were tied down when a massive thunderstorm came through that blew a hanger over. You can’t predict the weather.
  12. Maybe consider a date in September. The shorter days and Autumn weather make it tough coming in from the eastern US.
  13. That’s great! Enjoy your trip to Page. I wish that I could be there.
