  1. Prop Issue -- Cosmetic or Serious?

    It’s not my plane, but one that I saw. Tom’s right. What most people call the back is actually the “face”. The side you see from the cockpit.
  2. Prop Issue -- Cosmetic or Serious?

    I was surprised at how bad the paint was chipped up on the back side of a Sensenich with 150 hours. 2011 CTLS. The Nueforms always look like new.
  3. Kennel Storage?

    I had questioned the forum several years ago about transporting a kitten for my daughter. The consensus then was that it would probably be too loud for pets.
  4. iFly 740b Install

    Andy, could you post a picture of the bare block? How does the original block keep tension on the rods so that they don’t retract?
  5. iFly 740b Install

    I like this location but I don’t know how the knobs are supported. It looks like the tab that was part of the original mushroom is moved, but it would need to be supported really well in the new location. I think that this was Scrapman1959’s first CTLS.
  6. Favorite weather app for planning?

    I uses this one a lot http://www.usairnet.com/cgi-bin/launch/code.cgi?Submit=Go&sta=KIDI&state=PA

    I shorted out my landing light and it tripped its breaker. The fault also destroyed my intercom without tripping its breaker. My ruined intercom acted like yours.
  8. Also, hooded sweatshirts.
  9. New panel insert

    I can’t find it at IKEA in the US. Maybe in Europe?
  10. New panel insert

    Has anyone found a source for the original looking panel blanks?
  11. 912 ignition modules

    You could start a great business if you were able to repair these modules. It looks like that they all go bad at some point. Three of us that fly together have all replaced them.
  12. Wingtip Repair

    Hi Dick. My IA attended a Lockwood class in 2011. Cory is the closest for you and I that I know of.
  13. Wingtip Repair

    Lockwood has had composite classes in the past with either Daniel or Frank. Both guys are from Germany.
  14. Hi Bill, i attended it in June. It's a long three weeks but well worth it in the long run. Once you have your LSRM, you can sit for you A&P in as little as 30 months.
