  1. Looks great in its new home Chris! Have fun!
  2. The 912is has a "Economy" setting and a "Power" setting that transitions at a throttle percentage. Depending on how the prop is pitched that transition will occur a various rpm's, sounds like you were operating at that range. If you watch the Dynon engine display you should see a text of "Eco" or "Pwr" depending on which side you are. "Eco" will trim the fuel flow down to 3.8-4.0 gph usually which slows you down a bit but your range goes way up. Hope that helps
  3. Hello, We teach in our CTLS and have a lot of experience in the CTSW as well. The two are similar enough to provide the skills needed. Let us know how we can help. We are located in the South West US
  4. The Dynon autopilot servos in the CTLSi should both be Arm style from the ones I have seen. Its easy to see the roll one in the baggage area, if it has an arm with a pushrod to the aileron linkage its the Arm style, capstan would look like an aluminum bar riding on a circular wheel at the servo. Hope that helps.
  5. Seems like the conventional gear choice may have been a result of the pusher prop that could contact the ground if over rotated with a tricycle gear.
  6. The "Tri motor" returns!! Maybe I can finally put all my tailwheel time to work
  7. Might also check if there are airspeed limits set for the pitch loop. Most have an upper and lower airspeed limit, maybe you were bumping up against that upper limit.
  8. Wax lacing cord works well here too.
  9. From pg 4-55 of the CTLS maintenance manual. Flap deflection can be adjusted by the flap control panel. Check flap angle of deflection after each adjustment by means of electronic level. 1. Connect printed circuit board (PCB) connectors with corresponding headers of the flap actuator control (Control Card MT-10) wiring harness (Fig. 9). 2. Connect auxiliary control switches SW1 and SW2 to corresponding connectors at the PCB for programming. 3. Set the flap into required position by SW2 using a level. Set the digital screen indication corresponding to the value at the level by SW3. 4. Press SW1 to input data into the PCB memory. If the operation has been performed correctly the display shows the value set by SW3. 5. Move the flap by SW2 to the next required position using a level. Change the value at the screen by SW3 according to the value at the level. Press SW1 to save settings into the memory. 6. Repeat the process for each of the flap positions. 7. If you cannot adjust (set) max angles of deflection (the rod of the flap actuator takes the end position), this problem could be solved by adjusting the length of the rod of flap control. The length of the rod can be adjusted only following the item 8. After rigging all flap positions turn off the circuit breaker 25A. 9. Remove the switches SW1 and SW2. 10. Turn the circuit breaker 25A on. 11. If the instruction has been performed correctly the flaps will take their predefined positions. I can let you borrow my switch set or if you are ever down to Bisbee you are welcome to use them.
  10. Soft brush attachment on a shop vacuum.

  12. Yes, we have a couple that do check rides in our CTLS One of them even travels to California for check rides.
  13. I've got a few hours in the Swift, they are a bit sluggish with the 145hp but awesome with the 200-210 options! They are pretty friendly on the ground but I've only flown them in fairly benign conditions.
