    Stick Shake

    Okay . . . thank you.

    EGT question for the experts?

    Are your exhaust pipes wrapped? I am wondering if that makes a difference at all.

    Stick Shake

    Tom, I am not doubting you, but any document source for that? If something was published by FD, I’d like to read up on it.

    Was the autopilot coupled in the video? If the gain is set too high in the autopilot pitch axis, it can cause the pitch servo to become “twitchy,” which can be felt as control feedback (pitch axis) of the control stick. Or . . . You may be experiencing a little stabilator flutter. Was that at normal cruise speed, during straight and level flight?
  5. Complexity? Tom, please elaborate.
  6. Question: Regarding the seat belt . . . to tighten each belt (right and left waist), do you “ pull outward, towards windscreen, or “pull down,” towards aft- seat bottom? Makes a big difference on tightening and losening.

    uAvionix skyBeacon for ADS-B Out

    Correct. You still need SV-GPS-2020 (or an equivalent) to have a compliant GPS position source for ADS-B Out. The SV-GPS-250 position source will not suffice to satisfy the 2020 ADS-B mandate. http://www.dynonavionics.com/gps-receiver-module.php

    Passenger Foot Rest

    Al, Is that same device applicable to both, the CTSW and CTLS?

    Al, If you decide to make a bunch of them, count me in too.

    Engine thrust alignment

    That is what I was told by Dave Armando, former Director of Maintenance, Flight Design USA.

    Thanks Roger. Interesting report.

    Engine thrust alignment

    If you closely inspect the front part of the entire cowl, you will see that the offset (to the right) and the engine droop is built into cowls. The extended portion of left vs. right and up vs. down are not symetrical. It take a keen eye to see it, but it is there. Take a close look sometime.

    Engine thrust alignment

    A couple of years ago, I inquired Flight Design USA regarding that question. To the best of my knowledge, the CTSW cowling is designed with a right offset of 2.5°. What’s more, when the prop spinner is centered on the cowling, designed engine droop is approximately -5°. I was told jigs are used in the construction of the cowlings.

    I don’t think so. When I inquired about my 6.00x6, I recall him saying that. That is a drawback for sure. It has been a couple of years since I talked to them, so by now, maybe they started carrying them. I would give them a call.
