  1. he only got pale. Reach over and shut the engine off and watch them cry.
  2. The mechanical pump has rarely ever failed. If it were to totally fail it fails open. Yes gravity feed makes a huge difference and no the engine will not quit. You may only be able to get 4900 - 5000 rpm out of it before it wants to cough, but you can still fly wherever you want. The engine will run just fine below the 2.2 psi minimum. I know this because I tested the system just for this.
  3. Tighten the 5 main grounds, squeeze the fuel pressure gauge connectors with a pair of pliers to make them tighter and if these fail replace the sender. Most likely has some old fuel clogging up the tiny hole in the sender.
  4. 50 knots at 30 & 40 for me to. At this speed I can land in 1K ft. and less all day long. If you try to shave every last knot off one day you may be posting picks here of your smashed gear. There isn't enough to be gained by trying to shave a few knots off.
  5. If for any reason my computer runs a bit slower than normal I run CCleaner (free download) and clean all history & cookies from begining of time ( it won't hurt your passwords). I also run Malware Bytes and Rouge Killer once every two weeks. I never have computer problems or any malware. These items keep my computer fast and clean. Learned these easy and simple tricks from CT4Me. If you've never used a cleaner then you probably have thousands of cookies and trackers on your computer. I let Microsoft Essentials and Malware Bytes run in the background all the time for security. p.s. I never ever open any email or attachment if I don't know what it is or did not go personally looking for something on a secure site. Opening an attachment gives your computer permission to allow whatever is in the attachment access to your computer. Now days Ransom Ware is a major issue and you could lose everything on your system.
  6. I CTLSi crashed a few days ago (pilot error) as it veered off the runway and hit a hole which caused it to be totaled. No injuries. This was at some airport around Las Vegas.

  9. Replace the engine compartment fuel filter and then inspect the gascolator screen. That should take care of your problem.
  10. You are propped well at 5600 and I would leave it alone. If you coarsen the prop you will lose some fuel economy and climb. Eco mode usually starts above 5300 rpm. You can stay under 5300 rpm to cruise for best fuel economy or cruise at 5400 and go a couple knots faster, but burn a lot more fuel. Enjoy it the way it is. It is setup properly.
  11. Hi Ed, What was your flap setting when the wind pushed you over?
  12. New place to fly this year. Just north of Mexican Hat town which is just north of Monument Valley is Valley of the Gods. It's a must see.. Just north of Mexican Hat.
  13. 15-20 minutes is only to pop the cute out.
  14. Ed, Your serial number on Woodstock is 05-12-05 which means it is a Dec. of 2005 aircraft build. I didn't have some of the upgrades as the later mid 2006 and later CT's had.
  15. Hi Ed, The tail / rudder is bigger than your old plane. The Neuform prop will definitely give you better climb than your Warp. The main gear is thicker than yours. The 2007 and your have differences.
