  1. Yes still watching. Want to hear the result of this mystery.....
  2. Hi JG3 - Just re read your article(s) on propeller performance/comparisons. I have been trying to get some informed comment on CS/IFA props (you may have seen my thread "Prop Selection" on the topic. I would be very interested in your observations on the matter.


    You will find in the aforementioned "thread" my rational for going down this particular line of enquiry - in short - terrible home field, requiring short field TO/Landings, ever time. Ground adjustable set for advantage climb. Resulting in, expected, reduced cruise performance. My wish to explore options to retain excellent existing TO & climb out performance, while significantly improving cruise. Seems to me a CS/IFA is the only way I can have my cake and eat it. I guess the question is by how much (if at all) can I expect to gain in cruise.


    Aircraft: ATEC Zephyr, motivated by Rotax 912 ULS through a Fiti 2 blade ground adjustable. Note:  Fiti - couldn't be happier - very smooth, quiet running.

  3. Bombardier Recreational Products (BRP) says it has suspended the delivery of aircraft engines to "countries with unclear usage" in the wake of reports that some of those engines are being used on Turkish combat drones deployed by Azerbaijan in fighting against Armenian forces in Nagorno-Karabakh. The Quebec-based company — better known for its Ski-Doo and Lynx snowmobiles — said it became aware late last week that some of the recreational aircraft engines produced by its Austrian subsidiary, Rotax, are being used on Turkish Bayraktar TB2 unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). https:
  4. Gday, Finally the results of testing the EProp in comparison to Bolly and Kool (Luga), using manifold pressure to set engine power exactly equal for each. Once again surprising results that required testing again and again to confirm. The results and analysis are several pages so access them here https://www.stolspeed.com/nid/46 EProp Testing.docx
  5. She was very cool the way she handled that flareup.
  6. It's not who you were told. I have word from a neighbor of his at Gatton Airpark. He flew a trike there.
  7. That's way out of date; I haven't kept it up. There's way more available now as already demonstrated. Excellent project. Hopefully tied in with OzRunways for convenience.
  8. And these days the USA can't produce enough face masks when they need them......
  9. I've done that but the ad is still up......
  10. Now my question is how do I remove an ad after the item has been sold?? I guess I'm slow but can't find a way to do it.....
  11. I found that these sardine tins do the job very well. Fit snugly around the float bowl. Held up by either light bungy cord or tie wire. Drain tube is plastic drip irrigation line forced into slightly undersize hole. Been using them for 10 years no problems. Light weight and the price is right..... I particularly like their heat shield function from the hot exhaust right below.
  12. JG chipping in here...... Those ICP VGs should just click into the holes provided, in that paired pattern as you see in the photo. If you didn't have ICP VGs then the Stolspeed VGs will just stick on over those holes in the same pattern. ICP purchased their very first set of VGs from me at Narromine. At the time I was importing the VGs from the USA, and ICP copied that style of VG. I never liked that style with the sharp point and the crude base, so I later designed my own. ICP chose to go with the paired pattern that some other suppliers used. I tested both that paired pattern and t
  13. <<do you listen to area frequency to stay safe and informed? >> Informed about what the big jets and IFR aircraft are doing way up there, but nothing about the low level VFR you may encounter....
  14. Thank you. I didn't realize that you need to select the category first step. Done now.
  15. How do I add a new posting in the classifieds?? Maybe I'm blind but I can't find a way in.....
