    Lightspeed Zulu 3

    I have the d/c 10-13.4s and I’ll keep them for pax as they still do the job. Worked well in the Lightwing I had but the Hornet Cub I have now the mic is activating the intercom from engine/ airframe noise when over 5000 rpm ( 912(uls). The intercom which is built into the Icom a220 vhf and I’ve tried all the different settings (mic gain/squelch ect) to no avail and tried the Bose A20 also and same result and that’s why I’m looking at the Zulu 3 with the different mic set up as I still need another headset. I know jack $h/t about avionics so hoping one you tech gurus maybe able to help.

    Lightspeed Zulu 3

    Thanks for the reply Roscoe. I’ve been tossing up between the L/S 3 and the Bose A20 b/t but the L/S 3 seem better value. I have flown with the Bose but not the Lightspeed.
  6. Looking at updating my headsets to the Lightspeed Zulu 3 and was wondering if anyone has a set and their opinion on them?

    What radiator hose for Rotax 912

    G'day Peter, I got one hose from Repco and the other from a Mackay rubber catalogue (360 pages to find the right one). I wrote the numbers down in the maintenance log but the aircraft has been sold. I just took the hoses with me to town and got the right bends ect and cut them to length. I have not seen one Lightwing Rotax installation the exactly the same so it is not as easy as just ordering one off the shelf. Regards Clayt.

    The wierdest thing....Canberra

    . I can relate to that one Planedriver,about 27 years ago I was in a mustering (cattle) camp 150 km NW of Camooweal and while lying in my swag at about 8.30pm (NT time) looking into the west I could see this light dancing around on the horizon and my first thought was its a minmin light but I kept it to myself (in case I had a touch of the sun) but the same time the next night there it was again.This went on for about 3 nights until I pointed it out to the mustering pilot and he studied it for a bit and advised me it was the evenings star (I felt a fool). It's amazing the optical illusion it gives on the Barkley Tableland horizon at nighttime with a slight breeze blowing. I didn't get a cent either. CV.
