    I hear through the grapevine that Andy just loves these things. He wants one for each wingtip. https://www.uavionix.com/news/

    Glider tape question?

    Hi Ed, You have the perfect plane to go Zebra. White on yellow. Just add more tape over other parts of the plane to finish the look.

    Glider tape question?

    Do a good job it looks good, smooth and almost unnoticeable. Put on correctly it doesn't crack or split. It keeps water and cold air out of the cockpit and from entering other spaces on the fuselage. Some of you don't like it because you don't know how to apply it. You use 2" tape when 1" is good for the entire plane. 2" looks ugly in most places.

    Something is off. Your using multiple VPN's. The majority read from Pakistan and your original is from San Jose, CA. You email shows from San Jose, CA. Who's Wang Shu? Plus the original post has some oddities. This was posted over on the Rotax forum. This is what your location says: 迪拜客机在俄坠毁: Dubai passenger plane crashed 62 people killed in Russia What's up?

    Well John-Olav looks like you'll have at least one Popsicle attending Page. LOL 😁

    Here is my other problem. This was allowed this to go on for over 1 minute.

    You're not even supposed to run the engine without a prop because an over speed can happen so fast you couldn't stop it.

    I think that is a wise call because of this odd weather. Oct. in AZ is usually perfect and is why we have always gone up to this area this time of year.

    Andy, Something strange here?

    Night time temps will be in the low 20's. A little cool to try and leave the plane overnight and try and start the next day. The highs are only around 44F. After 11 years this is without a doubt the coldest Oct and fly-In weather we have ever seen. It seems there are more storms in the western US to.

    Vne

    I've seen well past 2000 ft. loss at a straight dive at idle and 140 knots.

    Awesome new seat in my CTLSi

    Yes it did and I didn't have any tools out. I had three timers.

    Just remind her like I tell my wife. She spoke and signed an oath in the begining. "Until death do us part". Now she seems more worried. LOL

    Awesome new seat in my CTLSi

    A nice stout rubber band holds that level very secure and still. You could just hold it with your hand. I have even set them in the field with my Ipad. Measure back 8" - 9" from the tip and put a line on each blade then use that line as your mark. I can get them dead on with any of these methods. It really isn't hard and I can do it in 30 minutes. Just ask Sandpiper that lost that dinner bet. LOL

    Awesome new seat in my CTLSi

    You can use a prop protractor or just use a rubber-band to hold on a 12" digital level. I use both when I adjust a prop. I just installed a new Sensenich 68" 3 blade on a Tecnam that had a 68" fixed pitch 2 blade that only allowed 5200 rpm WOT. What a difference. Prop set to get 5650.

    5350 is over pitched. Anything under 5500 is over pitched. There are NO redeeming qualities with an over pitched prop. You lose everything. Climb, cruise (cruise sped and top speed), fuel economy and higher engine temps. Set the prop pitch to achieve around 5600-5650 rpm at WOT at your AVERAGE altitude. This is the best balanced pitch setting for climb, cruise, fuel economy and engine temps. If you only see 5350 take 1 degree out of the pitch and try it.

    Fuel pressure question?

    Most likely a poor connection. If it was a poor ground it would go low. It is possible to be the sender. It happened to me.

    Hanging with the Peeps

    A few old CT fliers and wives hanging out at the Coyboy Corral restaurant (built in the 1800's) in Elsinore, UT for breakfast

    Exhaust Departed in Flight

    Your right no help in breaks. I had a hard time with the picture. Guess my eyeballs are getting older faster than the rest of me? Breaks either come from bad welds or excessive vibration.

    REMOVING RESUDUE WHEN REPLACING TAPE

    Hi Dick, I wouldn't use MEK or Acetone on our CT's. I haven't found any tape including the old cloth tape and the plastic strip tape that was on the stab that wouldn't come off with Goof Off and some elbow grease.

    REMOVING RESUDUE WHEN REPLACING TAPE

    I don’t use hard solvents. I do use Goof Off. Just apply it to a rag. You are not trying to soak the area to be cleaned. I have never had any tape residue that couldn’t be wiped off with Goof Off. Available at Ace Aviation and many other stores.

    Sleeve for FAA certificate

    https://www.aircraftspruce.com/pages/ps/flightbags_xcert/lic13-07900.php Then stick it up with some velcro where it can be seen from the outside. Many put it back on the bulkhead or on the side of the instrument panel or down by your knee.

    Exhaust Departed in Flight

    This isn't the first time. I have seen another CTLSi exhaust pipe come off and fry the cowl, coolant reservoir and surrounding soft parts. I HIGHLY recommend that all CTLSi aircraft put a wrench on the clamp that holds the pipe in place and then drill a hole through both pipe and receptacle and put a stainless steel rivet in place. I have suggested the rivet to FD and this will make sure this never happens again. I have found a few clamps that needed to be loosened, pushed the pipe back in as far as possible and most of all tighten the clamps TIGHT.
