  1. Mine runs the disk it uses alternator type brushes and I have never had to replace them and still plenty of length left. The prop was fitted by the previous owner just before I bought the aircraft off him as the woodcomp had time expired and no longer a dealer in Australia. The airmaster was purchased second hand with low hours and actually came off a tecnam which was going to be used for training and converted back to fixed pitch for simplicity so it wasn’t even specced for the Sting . I never few the aircraft with woodcomp In flight adjustable but previous owner reckoned the airmaster was mu
  2. I posted this back in may when you asked the same question. I have run this cs unit for the last five years and couldn’t be happier with it. See below again! I run an airmaster with warp drive blades on my 912uls Sting and the performance is exceptional. In take off mode the engine revs to 5700 rpm and the acceleration pushes you back into the seat . I switch it to climb mode 5500rpm about 100 ft off the ground and put the flaps away as it will quickly accelerate through max flap speed 77knts and climb out solo at 80knts at 1300 -1500 ftpm depending on the day And fully loaded it will

In the cruise mode 5000 rpm at 24in manifold pressure I get about 115ktas at 15-16l hr and at 26in I get about 125 k
  4. It tows it from the tie down line to hangar and back nicely. Beats doing it by hand in this bloody heatwave.
  5. Cover I had made for my Sting . Fully padded and protects from hail and sun. It takes about 5 minutes to remove and install with 2 people a little longer to install by yourself.Its too heavy and bulky to take in aircraft but I have factory canopy cover for trips away.Bird deterrence on the tail made from a piece of pvc and cable ties also works well.
  6. That would be good mate and not me paying a visit I haven't flown for weeks due to work and weather hopefully early next week I will be able to drill some holes in the sky
  7. Hi Clayton here you have the new addition .I have lightspeeds and happy with them I am half deaf so needed anr to hear radio better .I am considering getting the cordless lightspeed tango and pax can use the zulus.Happy for you to try mine if you like
  8. Hi Jim welcome. Just spent a week or two in Georgia with freinds in Dallas Ga. near Atlanta .A beautiful part of the world and great southern hospitality.Carnt wait to go back .We did some boating on Lake Allatoona would love to fly over it.Good luck with the hurricane hope all is well. Danny
  9. It's doing hi resolution mapping in the area and has been operating in the area for some time .I got this information off the local helicopter charter in Roma as they frequently operate in the area .They were notified by email of its operations.
  10. Seb I have a laser thermometer if you want to borrow it Cheers Danny
  11. All good now .Did try reset etc earlier but didnt make any difference.
  12. Is any body having a problem with Oz runways ?Every time I open wx notams on an airfield oz runways shuts down on my I pad.I am up to date with upgrades etc and it worked fine yesterday.All other features are ok and works fine. cheers 409
  13. Look on the bright side mate ,you will have to fly the route again.I bought a cheapie $100 from supa cheap for my race car ,footage was ok but any vibration ( lots on a drag car ) it created a horrible buzzing noise .I used it on my helmet skiing in New Zealand and it worked great.I havnt tried it in the plane yet. Danny
