I also have a Vertex radio which I run off the radios battery. Connected to an antenna on my instrument pod.
I have a LED landing light which I have set up to strobe in daytime. I would get a loud buzz when it flashed on.
Since the light was close to the antenna I moved the light lower on the...
Just looked at the Cavalon USA web site. Says take off distance with one pilot is 98'. https://autogyrousa.com/cavalon/

This was for an Avid Flyer I had. The waver was for me to operate to/ from an airport under O'Hares class B airspace. I also had to submit a...
My Subaru 2.2 is getting a little tired. Not sure whether to find a place to rebuild or get a crate rebuild.
The first question I have is the bolt pattern on the engine for the reducer.
Some of the crate engines I see are called EJ22E. I need to know if the bolt pattern is the same and...
The stuff was extremely small and lint like. Uneventful landing. I was on final for the runway so I got lucky.
