  1. I’ve read the Rotax manual and know the max temps and so on but I’m chasing actual in field CHT temps. At what point would you start to think the engine is getting on the warm side? I’ve just installed a 912 and only have 2.1 flight hours on the (second hand) engine. I’ve only ever flown Rotax’s before mainly in Tecnam’s where they run nice and cool. What temps do people usually see in flight and climb? Thanks 🙂
  2. Currently the Off Topic site is named Whats Up Australia (.com.au) which I feel is a bit long. I am about to rebuild that site into something more powerful and sociable so I am wondering whether to just call it Jackaroo (.com.au)...what do you think? The Off Topic site is purely for discussions on anything to do with Australia...politics, news, current events and affairs etc.
  3. I am currentlt visiting the US and was wondering whether my RAAUS qualifications are recognized here. Also was wondering what qualification rec pilots have here. Is it like we have in Oz, a "pilot certificate" or do rec pilots here just have PPLs? Would any Americans on the forum care to have a stab at this?
  4. Next month we have the RAA Board Elections. The candidate profiles are in the current Sports Pilot magazine and there are contact numbers and email addresses. I am emailing questions to the candidates and deciding for whom I am going to vote. Overall I think the current management have done a good job of furthering the RAA and member interests, but there could be more cooperation and engagement with the rest of the aviation community's interests. Also the small but annoying distractions like the "freedom to fly" registration were not welcome and a sign of either management judgment error or hubris. We all make mistakes and group think mistakes can happen with any board that may or may not be being dominated by a small clique. Any questions the community should be asking? In my dilettante position of complete amateur, I would be interested to see anybody's informed comments. There are a couple of other management questions such as senior executive's business interests and association corporate structural changes, now is the time. Thanks, Frankus
  5. To replace or not to replace , that is the question . I have an Airborne Edge Outback 582 & although the hours are low , and it's been stored in a hangar , It has sat for years. It doesn't seem to me that the shock cord is as tight as those who share the hangar ... so Just replace & be done with it, or retighten & reattach ? Crimps or cable ties ? Any suggestions , tips or tricks greatly appreciated . Cheers Troy Rep.
  6. This article by kitfox designer & manufacturer Dan Denny some time ago states that kitfox airframes are quite ok to carry an extra 300 lbs if you choose to do so, as the Skyfox could be considered a stronger version of the kitfox ,one could assume that an official weight increase to at least 550 kg should be sought from RAA. One could make the point that at the time the skyfoxes were being produced ,they were only certified to 425kg because that was the maximum approved weight at that time ,test data showed that they easily passed all safety testing with plenty of margin
  7. Hey all, So my bird has a Rotax 912ULS with only 320 odd hours on it. The problem is, it will be 15 years old (TBO) in 3 very short years. So I have a few questions I would love your opinion on. 1) - Would you try to offload it now, and put that coin towards a new one? OR 2) - Would you wait for the 3 years and try and offload at TBO and do as above? OR 3) - Would you keep it and run it "On Condition" as allowable under RAAus? (Private use only) I would love to hear your thoughts. The engine has meticulously maintained, with all SBs etc completed. Just scratching my head on how to proceed. I want to keep the airframe (also only 320 hours in) as it's immaculate, and I love it. Anyways... Fire away. Cheers J
  8. Hi, I've been trying to get some information about the M10 x 110 and M10 x 35 bolts that are used to secure the ring mount to the engine itself. Does anyone know the specifications for these? I'm assuming they have to be some kind of high tensile bolt rather than the sort you buy at Bunnings. Obviously they're not AN because AN don't do metric. Thanks, Marty
  9. In a desperate attempt to get some conversation going, I ask the following questions: One of the eight caps on my 912 ULS has been found not to meet the security/fit standard (loose) at the 900 hr service (now underway): Original plug is made by NGK and has the writing VDO5FMH 5KΏ on the side. · Q1 - Replace all 8? · Q2 - Replace the faulty one? · Q3 - Replace with another brand or type? · Q4 - Cheapest supplier? · Q5 - Other related comments? I look forward to some interesting suggestion and comments.
  10. Just curious about those of you who have built their Nynja. What was your experience with the kit? Did you enjoy building it? Were there many parts missing/ wrong size etc? How was the manual? Easy to follow or did you have to contact the factory a lot? How was the customer service when you contacted them? Asking for a 'friend' 😄
  11. Hi Folks, As Bert Floods are no longer selling NGK B8ES Spark Plugs, can someone please tell me where to buy them from? NOTE they need to have un-screwable tips, the ones at car shops only sell solid posts which are too big to connect to high tension lead cap. Thanks.
  12. There are 2 ways we can provide you with the Whats New (Unread) Page and I would like you to vote on which one you would prefer so as to give me direction on the page. 1. The way it is now with ALL new items that you haven't read/seen in a list. This includes not only forum posts but also new aircraft entries, new tutorials, new videos, images, articles etc...or 2. The list to just contain new forum posts/threads in the one box plus new entries for each section in other blocks...blocks like the home page has The thing is there may be something in the other sections of the site that are of interest so the Whats New (Unread) page needs to reflect everything that is new to meet everyone's interest so it is about the layout that you prefer so please vote
  13. Hey all, So I have never really noticed this until I started doing my own maintenance, and one step is to measure how much force it takes to pull the prop through, and noticed recently that if the bird has sat for a month or so, the prop pulls through really easy. What I am saying is... when I turn up at the hangar and pull the prop through 5 or 6 times to burp the oil, she is really easy to pull through. If I do the same thing after i go flying, she is a lot firmer. Is this normal? My LAME seems to thing it's OK. She runs fine. Burns no oil, and is smooth. She is a 912 ULS 2008 with about 350 hours on it. All SBs up to date etc. Any advice would be appreciated. Cheers J
  14. Come Birdsville race time do owners of Savannah’s venture there? We are planning in the future to travel in ours to share the madness.
  15. Hi, I'm a new pilot and have acquired an aircraft with a Jab 2200A engine. It has done 316hrs so far and the log books look very thorough. Just after people's thoughts, experiences, and possible things I may need to be aware of with this engine.
  16. So.... Here's a question... How many of us out there use the circuit correctly. As in, when you arrive at an AD, you go through the motions of joining the circuit properly? I ask because I live near an AD where lots of aircraft blast in from anywhere and just land. Circuits are to the left, but even today, 2 aircraft flew what I would consider a weird angle from the right and just landed. Add to that - not many use the radio around here LOL! So it got me thinking... how many of us do the same thing? I personally like to fly over the AD, spot the windsock, and make sure I am going to come in from the correct direction. But I am only 130 hours in, so call me cautious! Confessions Session is now open. 😉
  17. Free Coffee available at the Lack of control Tower. . . .
  18. How are dedicated CTAFs allocated?? The reason I ask is that in our SE Qld area for example, a very busy airfield like Gympie is sharing 126.7 while a very quiet airfield like Watts Bridge has it's own dedicated frequency. With all the training action at Gympie, sometimes the transmissions are almost constant, taking up much of the 126.7 air time. Do the managers of Gympie need to apply for a dedicated frequency and be assessed, or how is it done???
  19. Hi there. I am a long time lurker first time poster. I am looking to purchase an aircraft for commuting between my QLD and TAS farming properties. At this stage I will be landing at sealed airports and flying only myself, but I am planning one day to take the family (of 3) with me and land on either property. I am happy to pay more up from to lower operating expenses. I would be keen to hear some suggestions. Note: please don't bother to suggest a Cirrus.... i had a friend in aviation insurance who made me swear never to fly in one.. I am aware of the diamond and tecnam twin piston offerings.
  20. Just looking at the MSN photos of thecrashed and burnt Citation that had the retired race driver and family on board and the fuselage seems to have some sort of mesh left after it has burnt. I just wonder what sort of structure the fuselage has, is it a carbo fibre composite? Apparently something flammable.
  21. I have created a proposed Home Page for the site and have a few concerns about it so I would very much value your opinion on it before I turn it on. You can see it at https://www.recreationalflying.com/index.html/ Does it load fast enough? Is it too cluttered? Is it missing something? Each section has too many entries or not enough entries? Is the layout right and the different sections in the right order? Is there enough importance placed on the right sections like centre or side column? etc etc etc Please post your comments and also remember there are still several more components to add like Articles, Tools and Calculators, On This Day, Famous Aviators etc
  22. It's 6:30 am here in Oshkosh on Monday morning, the first day of the show. We are camped in 101 Woods and would like to know about any other forumites that are here. If you are here, stop by for a cuppa, and let us know if you're going to the international dinner. If we're not in the trailer when you stop by, leave us a note for how we can contact you here.
  23. I was never 100% on the purply blue colour of the theme for the site so I have changed it to a more true blue...any thoughts? Old: New:
  24. Hi All Recreational Flying (.com) users The site is powering on with some great new features with a lot more to come so I was wanting to know how we are going with it and delivering to you everything you want and need from a recreational flying resource...a sort of score card. This will help in creating the site's future to one that you will value in what it provides. Please post your thoughts both good and bad so we can ensure we are on the right path...I personally very much appreciate your time in any comment you can make, any at all...thanks
  25. Hi UK aviators! my wife and I have just home returned home after a couple weeks visit to the UK. It was basically a family visit, but we drove around a bit and took in a few sites. En route to Durham we called in at the delightful little flying club at Fishburn, which has a coffee shop overlooking the field. There we got talking to Dave, who's the farmer who owns the land the airfield is situated on. Dave was a really good bloke. He took us on a tour of the hangars, introduced us to a couple of the club members who were around, and told us about his practical arrangements for operating the airfield. My wife and I both fly and are just establishing our own airstrip at home, so we were very interested to chat with flyers, check out their aircraft and hear all Dave had to say.... Stupidly we drove off before I got Dave's contact details. He lives right there in the house beside the airfield. Does anybody here have an email or physical address for Dave? I'd really like to write and thank him for his time and kindness shown to two random Australians. We really liked Fishburn and it was a real highlight of our trip to UK. Cheers Alan
