    500fpm, 60 knots, 15 degrees flaps

    If its a light SW then roughly 200rpm less. There are lots of variables so those rpm settings will just be ballpark.

    500fpm, 60 knots, 15 degrees flaps

    Yep, those numbers seem about right. give or take a hundred RPM.

    CT incident Lorraine, Ohio 11/4/18

    Agree, the CTLS gear holds up pretty well with students. I've replaced one in 2500 hrs on our CTLS used for primary training.

    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.
