    Sorry, I thought it was...I want to make a movie not take video footage. Bobby said he used windows movie maker, that's what I was looking for. Have you used AVIdemux much? Is it as simple or more simple than movie maker? Thanks for following up Frank....

    2009 EPA Gas Can Jug spout fixes

    I bought the ez pour spout from TSC. Kinda expensive, but worth it maybe if you don't want to make your own like in the video. I hope the links work. Holding that damn gas can up for a 7 gallon seat tank sucks!

    Thanks, I'm good with hardware... it's what to do with all the video once you take it! I'd rather go flying than spend too much time trying to figure out software that does way more than I want. Again, just join a couple clips of different angle and maintain synced audio across it...

  • Air Command CLT Tandem Pod Options, anyone???

    Just what it says, It's going to start getting chilly again and I'd like to extend the season a bit. Has anyone ideas, or seen other's ideas besides that of a stock A/C pod?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi-
    Those were cool camera angles. What do you use to make the videos? I've tried to put some feelers out, but so far not much help.
    Tons of software out there, but all I want to do is clip a couple angles together and get audio to sync with the clips. Any help?...

    Engine Information System. Sorry, thought it was common though I didn't know until I had one. It has a small rectangle digital display and has rotor rpm, oil press, cht, egt, water temp, fuel, air temp, rpms all on one screen if you want it. Also flashes if something is running out of spec so I can...

    replied to Subaru 2.2 Cam upgrade power modifications
    Good thoughts though. I'm more worried about: How do I find someone to tune the engine now if I go turbo, - If I go Yammy, I need to figure out engine mounts and re-wire everything including the very nice EIS that's on the Subaru as well as make new cheek plates. I think I really like the turbo idea,...

    replied to Subaru 2.2 Cam upgrade power modifications
    Its a CLT tandem Air Command. I also have the Parham redrive. The plaque says it weighs 735lbs I think, and we're only about 650" elevation. I've had the machine for this season only and I didn't put it together, but it is very nicely done.
    I hang tested it, and then started adding weight...

    Are both of you guys running turbos? Is this something I just go to summit and pick up, or do you really need to know what you're doing? How does the tuning work...can you send off the computer, or do you need to take the machine to someone special? Thank you already!...

    Subaru 2.2 Cam upgrade power modifications

    Hi,
    I'm playing with the idea of swapping my stock subaru 2.2 for .a Yamaha 4 in an attempt to drop weight and get a bigger payload. My system is set up so nice, it seems like I'm asking for trouble, but I'm disappointed in my weight limitations. I tried searching the forum, perhaps I'm searching...

    How much does the Subaru 2.2 weigh? 300#s? Anyone know?...

    So I made it through the whole thread finally, but I don't think I saw any thrust numbers really. I recently did a static thrust on my stock 130 HP Subaru 2.2 on a hot day to adjust prop and get rpms up a bit.
    I have a 68" Warp Drive and saw ~550#s. I'd have to believe that the YG4 would...

    replied to Yamaha motor mounts
    I'm thinking I'd like to replace my Subaru with a Yamaha. Guy in the hangar has one with a plate for a Cbox, but I'd need to mount it on my AC CLT tandem. Can I buy a set like in the pictures?
    Are the motor mounts for the various YG motors the same or different?...

  • HI Scott-
    I tried a PM, but it tells me your "quota" is full. I was told you can help with a smoker kit? Then I saw a video on youtube too. Always looking to be seen at our airport and wanting to look cool on demand as well.

  • Very nice looking. So what are you using for the red and green lights? Like that too! Just to reiterate, I also had success with the light you're using, it's just not very bright comparatively. I bet the wig wag helps in daytime though.

    I bought a Blazer light bar from Autozone and...

  • Never said anything about such a thing! I assumed you meant, as I did, that at the top where the zoom climb peters out may have lower rpms...no pushover necessary....

  • Thanks Vance.
    I was up this evening and saw my rotors go to around 313 in a sustained vertical decent.(I take ~225' to recover w/ no power & nosed over).
    I then watched as I turned in a sustained tight fast left hand turn and saw just over 400 when I rolled out and up.
    I didn't...

  • What would the definition of low RRPM be? What maneuvers would cause low RRPM? If I "hover" at zero airspeed on a no wind day I come down pretty fast. RRPM is lower than in forward flight... shall I be concerned?

    Thanks for the help,
