  1. Wing Inspection

    I have changed mine without pulling the wings and as Roger said it is a PITA even after changing the clamp screws to SHCS. I mainly run 93 octane with ethanol and they get difficult to see after about a year...
  2. I lined most of my old hanger with used cement pavers. Worked very well and I was able to add to them as I acquired more over time.
  3. Engine failure today and forced landing.

    Maybe this will help understand the fuel system of a CT (granted this is for an CTLS).
  4. Folks that are anywhere close to Virginia should really look into this. The expense of the class will more than pay itself off over a few yearly inspections...
  5. Compliance Log?

    I have created a binder that is essentially my compliance log. Inside are copies of all of the SN, SA, and SB's with an index for each section showing when they were complied with. I also keep my log books in this same binder. Very handy for annuals and verifying compliance (easy to see what has been newly added since last time).
  6. Aero Classic 4.00x6 6 ply tires

    I have experienced the exact same thing that Tom has pictured on at least 3 tires now. I also balance the same way that he does (tire/wheel fully mounted) but, you do need to be sure the brake pads are not rubbing (Marc brakes). Have done this several times now and it seems to work very well. These tires are definitely very soft, not always of the best quality, and I have not seen one that didn't need some weight to balance.
  7. Cellular Power Plug Control

    My sim plan is through Truphone. Has worked perfectly until the new year. I was using a homemade relay that can handle the higher load for a heater since the switch that I have would not handle it. I'm just wondering if the switchbox and uphoneit are the only options or if others have found something else?
  8. Cellular Power Plug Control

    So I believe that this has affected my setup. What is the solution??? Is a different SIM card a solution or do i need a new switch box compatible with this new network?
  9. Brake Rotors cost

    Poke around on the website, the order doesn't make sense but they are on there. Also if you call the moto1 site they will order them for you and with shipping to your door will be just over 100 for both but they are plain drilled rotors (not the crazy cut ones).
  10. Brake Rotors cost

    If you look again at my original post you will find an Italian website with rotors listed for 61 euros each. They are very reasonable with shipping as well... www.speedcomfly.com
  11. Source for brake pads

    Check out this thread. A few of us have gotten them from the sites listed... http://ctflier.com/index.php?/topic/3321-marc-ingegno-brake-parts/?hl=%2Bbrake+%2Bpads
  12. I highly recommend this course. It is not very well known which is a real shame since the location may be attractive to many and the price even more so. A little bit marketing on the part of the college would have this class booked every year.
  13. Position light

    Yes I believe that they "blink" for a strobe effect.
  14. Position light

    Al, Try this site. They are a direct replacement. http://www.position-lights.com/index.php?page=lichter/epl.html
  15. Marc Ingegno brake pad thickness?

    Fast Eddie, I purchased a set of rotors from 1MOTOSHOP as well. they are not identical to the stock but you might be interested as they were about $50/each. This is the part number GOLDfren Aircraft Rotor 400-520. I havent needed to use them as mine are still in really good shape but, having spares is nice because they are not easy to get quickly. As Tip said, I too recently replaced that pads with pads from 1MOTO and they are working just fine. Speed.com (in Italy) is another good source if you want Marc parts but, they are more expensive and it takes some coordination to order from them.
