    Rotax 912

    Every 912ULS uses the same amount of fuel to produce the same horsepower if setup to spec. You need manifold pressure readings to know what is going on. Rotax recommend cruise at not below 5000 rpm and idle not below 2000. John.
  4. I use the Ping running on a portable USB power supply.
  5. The better BRS are fully deployed in 3 seconds and are shot well clear of the plane to avoid tangles. Believe it or not they can be deployed down to 30 meters ( 100 feet ). I wouldn't recommend that. Having worn a pilot chute for many years I know it is very hard to exit a plane in an unusual attitude. John.
  6. Obviously made from broken hay rake tines - spring steel. John.
  7. MH134 took off with 3 pilots up front, they must have taken off when the far fence appeared. Four pitot covers were left on. Three for air speed and one for altitude. Thet also did a heavy landing and the A330 was not moved for some time. Pitot covers have been mandatory in Brisbane because of a wasp problem. In the case of qantas the ground engineers remove the covers with a long pole then take them up to the cockpit where they are signed for before take off. John.
  8. I have a friend who flies behind a 6 cyl. Jabiru and does not have any overheating problems if he avoids a certain (narrow) rev range. Sorry can't remember that rev range but could find out. John.
  9. I will have another look later, may have been too close to Sydney.
  10. Loaded the icontest but could not see anything offshore Sydney. How far off shore ? John.
  11. Just to let you know that your airport data files loaded instantly to the Garmin G3X as waypoints. Now available for flight planning. Will be good if you can find time to expand the airfield data. Thanks.
  12. Thanks Biggles - second hand messages are not always right. Good advise danny
