    Looking for a stock RAF instrument panel engine tachometer

    I'd rather not remove it from the instrument panel until I have a replacement in hand. So I can't see the numbers on the case. If anyone knows that info, please post it. Alternately, if anyone knows of an RAF being parted out, that would be helpful.

    Looking for a stock RAF instrument panel engine tachometer

    If someone has either a spare or a used one, I'd like to purchase it. For some reason the contrast of mine has become so poor that it's hard to read it without really staring at it. The numbers are very dim. Thanks.

    Throttle control modification

    I'm used to having a nice quadrant throttle control handle. Something I can gently hold with a small knob at the top, and also about 6 inches long, which allows for better precision RPM control. This is what I had on my last plane: Now obviously I can't put this whole thing on the RAF, but I...

    Prop suggestions

    My RAF has the standard 68" 3 blade Warp Drive prop. When I was flying PPCs, I started with a 3 blade (72 inch) and a few years later ended up with a 5 blade Power Fin (also 72 inch) pictured below. The increase in thrust was remarkable, the RPM lower, and much quieter. So I'm considering...

    Trailer questions

    Thanks for the input, Willie. I definitely have to give this some thought. When I first started trailing my PPC, I noticed that some of the engine supports were being stressed. I spoke with other PPC owners and they said they'd had similar experiences. I decided to scrap the traditional tie-down...

    Trailer questions

    Excellent!! Thanks. I wasn't planning on detaching the rotors. Any thoughts on why that would be necessary as long as the rotors are correctly supported?

    Trailer questions

    Hello Everyone, Sorry if this isn't the correct forum for "trailers", but I didn't see a trailer forum. (Admin, please move to the correct forum if there is another.) I've purchased an RAF 2000, and would like to trailer it without taking the rotors off. I have an enclosed trailer which is 33...
