    Strobe lights

    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...

    Fatal - N419LB Cavalon OK

    Just looked at the Cavalon USA web site. Says take off distance with one pilot is 98'. Maybe with an experienced Pilot with experience in the Cavalon and a paved runway that might be possible. But others here have already pointed out the obvious.

    single place tall tail differences?

    I would suggest before you cut and drill cheekplates. Is to make a set of test cheek plates out of plywood. With several different positions drilled for the rotorhead. Then when doing the hang test you can move the rotorhead Back and forth till you get the correct angle. When you know the...

    To quote a fellow gyro member. Gyros don't kill people. People kill Gyros. Still a sad outcome. I feel for the families.

    Subaru 2.2 & Subaru 2.5 question

    I'm in the same situation as you. Trying to find how to convert the wiring harness for the ECU. I spoke with Don Parham who used to convert Subaru engines for aircraft use. He does recommend the 2.5 over the 2.2. The problem with the 2.5 is redoing the wiring harness to work as an aircraft...

    Sport Pilot Gyro Ground School

    Per 61.307 (a) and (b). Any Authorized instructor can endorse for the written test. Not so for the Practical (flight proficiency) test. I was assuming he was asking about the written test.

    EJ22 Question

    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...

    Seat tank finger fuel strainers

    The stuff was extremely small and lint like. Uneventful landing. I was on final for the runway so I got lucky. I think your idea for a metal filter is good. They don't cost that much so for me I would replace it annually.

    Seat tank finger fuel strainers

    My advice do not use a finger strainer. Once installed you can not see if it is clogged up. Use a clear in line fuel filter instead. Had a clogged finger strainer put me on the ground.
