    Lubing the stabilator cable

    Hi Dick, No obvious damage or signs of installation issues, just really stiff stabilator movement. I suspect it had water/humidity intrusion over time that maybe corroded it internally (came from coastal environment and not always hangered).

    Lubing the stabilator cable

    This is the system used in the CT stabilator control. http://www.flexballitaliana.com/prodotto.php?idprodotto=80 I had to replace one recently that was binding from I assume internal corrosion.

    Trying to get the most speed out of my CTLSi

    What you are seeing with your new prop pitch seems about right for what I have experienced in the CTLSi's I have flown. The injected motor does have a "power" and "economy" setting depending on throttle position. In economy mode the power and fuel flow is decreased along with your speed, a throttle position slightly above this setting ramps up the fuel flow, power and RPM. It can take a few prop adjustments to find the setting that can allow a 5300-5400 rpm comfortable cruise in the "power" band vs having to throttle back below 5500rpm and getting into the "economy" band unintentionally.

    Hi Sid, I have not had the opportunity to test it on a CTSW yet. It might work very well if the CTSW wingtip is fiberglass vs the carbon tip of the LS. I would ask Arian or Tom regarding the MRA, it can be installed without any modification to the wingtip and can use the existing wiring and connectors, however it is not original equipment.

    Wind speed arrow and stall warning

    Sometimes the Garmin GPS data output resets, so check the "Interface" settings on the unit. Should be something like Aviation and NMEA out.

    406 ELT requirments for Mexico

    BBP Alert: 406 issue comes to a head In the second advisory within 24 hours, the BBP has been informed that a 406 ELT will be required on all aircraft flying in Mexico. There is zero tolerance with no warnings being issued. Additional information has been provided the BBP that as of end of day, June 30, any aircraft in Mexico that does not have a 406 ELT will be grounded. As incorrectly reported earlier, there will be no warning. Mexico states that they have given the flying community over 15 years of extensions to allow time for all to add the required ELT and June 30, 2018 is the final deadline. There will be no more extensions. We are trying to find out more information regarding aircraft in Mexico past that date that do not have the required ELT. As soon as the dust settles on this one, we will do another alert. I repeat, do not take your aircraft to Mexico after June 30 if you do not have a 406 installed. And you might be making plans to move your aircraft out of Mexico if it is there without oneā€¦. More to come as we get additional information. jack@bbp
