    Leigh: I did not check thrust, just WOT as recommended.

    FlyCom Helmet

    My situation was in the front with my FlyCom with instructor in the back with a different setup. Could here him fine and the radio but my mic audio extremely low. Removed the active circuit and replace the mic with a David Clark mic and fine now.

    I set up he prop pitch and then did the runup based on discussion with Nicolas. He said 5500 Rpm normal when stationary and that that would go up to about 5800 at WOT. Tire pressure as recommended at limit, will check spec and let you. Brakes are hydraulic disc.

    Tyger: Full engine RPM on the ground is 5500 RPm and should go up in the air. My issue is ground speed at idle. Understand the gearbox issues but wore out a set of brake pads in less than 2 hrs, just taxiing!

    The cable/adjuster looks more substantial than what I had. Cable looks different and seems rigid at the adjusted. The cables on my Genesis are bicycle brake cable and sleeves.

    Correct:. Machined the basic part but had to wait for 6mm x .75 die so I could thread it. Then realized I needed a threaded plate to mount to the Bing bracket. Had to wait for the tap and the 1/4" aluminum plate. If I was going to do this again would do the brass rod but go 1/4" longer...

    I didn't like the way that the Rotax throttle adjuster fit the throttle cables. Made balancing the carbs and adjusting the idle sloppy. You can see the sloppy fit of the cable into the adjuster so I machined new adjusters. Here is a photo of the new adjusters and a threaded plate that I...
