  4. Hi Doug Scroll up on the thread and you will see photos as well as a video. Let lme know if you have problems finding them.
  5. Does anybody know where the remote compass is located in the CTLS?
  6. I have not been able to get the same material but I am making a set with a replacement. I will let you know if I think they are acceptable.
  7. There is a place called E Z heat that makes a good heater. Not to expensive and with the wifi outlets you can control it from home and only have it on a couple of hours before your flight. https://www.e-zheat.com/912-914-engines
  8. Thanks for all of the replies. I think I found a good solution. I have wifi in the hangar so I bought 2 Smart WIFI plugs. $10 each. Very simple install. I set up a schedule to have them on 6 am to noon. Planes generally get use starting at 8. I tested bypassing the schedule from home and it worked perfectly. I am able to control from home when needed. This time of year for the CT's, I like to keep the heater and battery charger on, but they really only need to be on for the first flights of the day. For the less used planes I can turn them on as needed when I get notified of a scheduled flight. I don't heat the hangar, only the office because of the expense. I have two large radiant heaters in the hangar and will be able to use one of these plugs on each of those and that will allow me to preheat the hangar when needed. I don't know if this will save money but it is cool to be able to control these sort of thing from home.
  9. Thanks for the info. I don't think that would work for me. I have 5 planes to manage and we keep the 3 CTLS's plugged in all the time in cold weather. The Piper Cub is not flown everyday and I would like to be able to activate the heater from anywhere. That way when I get notified of a reservation I could turn it on prior to the pilot arriving.
  10. I have to ask because I can't find the thread. I know there was some discussion about remote control power options. I see on line there are options from $25 to $400. Do you have any experience with any of the available units for running engine heaters like the Tannis?
  11. I will look tomorrow and see what I have. They come in pairs only but I may have an odd one. I only need one of each for reserve.
  12. Thanks Tom, I sent them an email.
  13. It snowed last night and the renter didn't know it came off (that is another story). It was discovered by the next pilot when he came in to fly.
