    No Cabin Heat-SOLVED!

    Roger, I have tried to align the intake on the shroud a number of times, but the exit at the aft of the shroud keeps it from aligning. Any hints? I am pondering widening the flexible “seal” around the outside of the intake.

    Door Lever Guide Plate

    Do you think ABS or PETG might make a more durable print?
  3. The only time I had a problem with this is when I didn’t put the strap through the clamp correctly. I am 205 lbs and was 215 when I got the plane. (Another 1.5 gal of fuel for MTOW.😎)

    New Floats from MS

    I find this a bit odd. MS decided to make floats that don’t hold up in fuel approved for use with carburetors that use that fuel? What type of plastic are they?

    New Floats from MS

    Based on what? If they just came out how much data does he have?

    Auto fuel available at your airport?

    I was told I could not store fuel in the hangar. That doesn’t make sense because my airplane stores fuel and the vents are open to the air. So they don’t allow sealed 5 gal. containers to be stored but they allow a 34gal. unsealed container??

    Replacement screws/bolts

    A Parts Manual from FD helps a lot with this sort of thing.

    I kept it out of the yellow so it was not that close to Vne. Still dropped fast in a controlled turn. A turn also helps blow the fire away from the fuse - if that is an issue. (That bit is out of the Skycatcher POH.)

    Looks like a 3D printing/small electronics project.

    They are one of the Harbor Freight perennial give aways.

    I was taught during my last Flight Review to do an emergency desent by using a spiraling dive near vine. There were a couple of aviation deaths because of fires in flight last year in the general area. This was the method he had been taught flying for an airline to lose altitude as fast as possible while maintaining control.

    Foreflight W&B Template?

    As is coolant, right?
  14. And add an endorsement for night flight. Oh, and get Canada to let us fly there!
