  1. Power loss in flight

    Okay. OAT of 53°f and high humidity are ideal conditions for carb icing in a CT. It is rare, but does happen.
  2. iFly 740b Install

    I'd be willing to bet, the FlyingMonkey could have fabricated a better part himself. After all . . . he is E-LSA. . .
  3. Power loss in flight

    During these events, regardless of OAT, was the humidity high?
  4. Low Cost ADS/B solutions

    Hi Eric, Any update on the install/testing of uAvionix echoUAT-SkyFYX? That is the unit some of us are really interested in.
  5. Power loss in flight

    Quality of fuel?
  6. New Rotax Service class in Tucson, AZ

    That conflicts with Lakeland Sun 'n Fun. Who schedules that stuff?
  7. Need a new door seal 2007 CTSW

    Hi Bob, This is what I use on my 2006 CTSW. https://www.amazon.com/Trim-Lok-Rubber-Closed-Sponge-Strength/dp/B073QXTCDB Snug fit and very, very good bond (3M), to your existing channel material. Before applying, remove the plastic channel and thoroughly strip and clean with acetone or lacquer thinner. After channel is back in door frame, then apply weather seal as desired. 25 foot length will do both doors.
  8. Control Lock

    Just a suggestion, but when I overnight outside, I use 2 bungee chords with hooks at each end of both. I hook each bungee to each right pedal, then wrap around, aft of each stick, hooking the other end to each left pedal. This forces the sticks forward and keeps them laterally centered One bungee can be used under normal conditions. But if strong winds are forecasted and I cannot find hangar space, I use 2 bungees. By using 2 bungees, the tension force on both sticks can be minimal, yet give it adequate control force. With forward stick, it lowers the trailing edge of the stabilator, which is more desirable with a surface tailwind, but at the same time, it also forces the nose down during a surface headwind, which I think is also desirable.
  9. Cabin heat

    I assume that would reduce the "flow rate" of air passing around the muffler can, thus increasing the air temperature, before it flows downstream to the cabin nozzles. I am not sure that would be a good idea. Are you sure you don't have a leak in your cabin heat system somewhere?
  10. Diagram is from Flight Design AIRCRAFT OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS CTSW, page 2-2.
  11. Designed engine droop angle for the CTSW is 5° nose low. How does that droop angle affect climb and cruise performance? What if the engine droop is more or less than 5°? Why is there any droop in the first place?
  12. -12 Degree Flap Microswitch

    At near sea level, 5200 rpm, what is your typical indicated airspeed?
  13. -12 Degree Flap Microswitch

    Last time I checked, my WOT rpm was at 5700 (3000'msl). I'm okay with that.
