  1. Where can I purchase the switches for the reprogram?
  2. Did 6 cycles all settings except -6 and 35 worked fine, numbers stopped flashing when flaps reached the assigned angle. on -6 the upper red light is on and the number continues to flash even though the flap motor has stopped. Same for the 35 setting except that the lower red light is on. Voltage is 12.9 Seems like the limit switches are stopping the flap motor before it reached the flap setting.
  3. No other electronics on except Dynon 120, had a battery minder attached to the battery.
  4. On my "New" CTLS while on the ground when I put the flap setting to -6 I hear the flap motor running and then stop but the numbers still blink and the red light on the upper right of the display is on. This also happens on the 35 deg setting. Looking at the maintenance manual this looks like a control rod out of adjustment to me. Just want to confirm this before I dig into the airplane and make some adjustments.
  5. After reading all the helpful topics on this forum, I have finally completed my first transition flight with my CTLS, Quite a change from my Zenith 650B low wing but I'm ecstatic!!! Found a great CFI who was willing to come to my airpark, had a great morning flight, looking forward to the rest of my instruction. Really a fun, comfortable plane to fly, stalls are a breeze and actually if I keep the plane landing as recommended it is a nice comfortable event. Also, thanks for all the helpful comments to all the questions I have had the past few months.
  6. Is there any way to get the Garmin GPS696 to display the Mode C boundaries?
  7. Thanks for all the info, Looks like a nice weekend project.
  8. I have a loose fuel cap fitting which turns about 1/4 turn and there are traces of fuel along the rear or the fitting. Looks like this was a problem before and a 1/8 inch line of epoxy was applied around the fitting. I'm thinking of removing the added epoxy and replacing it with something better. Any suggestions??? Thanks Tom
  9. Thank you for the suggestion, best one I have heard so far. I'll give it a try. Tom
  10. Thanks, probably will be my choice too. Just a "New" plane to me so I'm looking at all of the quirks.
  11. What would be the "HARD" method?
  12. Does anyone know of an "EASY" method to replace a broken hinge on the cockpit floor hatch?
  13. Does anyone have a copy/example of the program letter to submit for changing to ELSA? Thanks Tom
  14. HI All My "new" CTLS has only one set of keys and no Fuel tank dip stick. Seems like Flight design usa is quite proud of theirs, just wondering if there is any other source for these items. Thanks Tom
