    Resonance...?

    XXavier Yes it has been sorted with the new 145C hub bar. But after buying a 154B bar for a different SB, and then buying a 145C hub bar for our machine, I'm hoping this hub bar and teeter block is made correctly with the material specified in the type approved drawings

    Aviasport Rotor tach Wiring issue?

    We also got erratic readings on our Aviasport and changed the ELA's rotor tach to a MGL infinity RV1. Works perfectly now. http://www.mglavionics.com/html/infinity.html#RV-1 if you want a Colour screen check out the MGL Vega range.

    Wireless Rotor tach.

    Its a great project Jake. Are you using the same pickup coil for power and RPM sensing? Are you rectifying the pickup coil with the diodes, then charging a capacitor for powering the oscillator and also using the pickup coil AC voltage to Frequency Modulate the 88.1? You might want to keep in...

    Put a 5 or 10K ohm resistor between the rpm input on the gauge and ground. (Between pin 2 and pin 3)

    New Radiator Installed

    I think its an excellent mod, I definitely got a speed increase. my old rad had to be taped up to get the 582 to a reasonable working temperature in flight, there was at least a square foot of flat plate area causing drag.

    Stick Shake and control friction

    Maybe electrically adjusted dampers like on high prrformance motorcycles like the Honda cbr1000 which have the damping rates controlled by the computer sensing the speed of the bike could be modified where strain gauges on the stick would reduce the damping effect when they sense pilot input

    Stick Shake and control friction

    I think the snag with using something like this is those dampers are tuned to a particular frequency, we have a rotor that is varying in RPM (frequency) depending on load.

    My single Dominator has 5-6" clearance between the blades and the top of the tail. Stick full back on the stop and blades back on the teeter stop.
