  2. Hi all, Can anyone tell me how far apart the spring lugs should be when the muffler pipes are in position? Or failing that, how much should the springs be stretched? I'm taking the stainless steel lugs up to the welder tomorrow, but it'll probably be a while before he gets around to it anyway. Thanks! Marty
  3. Hello all. I have a question about Isa deviation and I can not work it out. the details are 12000 feet and 0c. 15-24 gives an Isa temp of -9 but the deviation is 9. the problem I have is I would have thought this is -9 and don’t understand why it is a positive not a negative. if anybody can show me what I am doing wrong would be great.
  4. Dear friends, My engine, a Rotax 912 ULS, has started running roughly on each mag. Aircraft; UFM-13 'Lambada'. Year of Construction; 2006. Total hours; 530. Previously it would always drop approx 150-180 RPM on each mag. Now, however, it's dropping over 500 RPM on each mag and running roughly with considerable shaking and roughness. It runs normally on both mags. PLEASE SEE VIDEO, ATTACHED Spark plugs seem unlikely as they only have 29 hours on them since being gapped and fitted last year. I changed the fuel to fresh, quality fuel and that didn't' change anything. There's a
  5. Would appreciate some advice re the following: At around 200 hrs the fuel pressure in my Sav started a rapid pressure pulsation. Floods suggested it may be to do with the location of the vent tube from the pump and suggested some fixes, none of which worked. In desperation a new pump was fitted (supplied at no cost to me) and the issue was solved. However 50 hrs later the problem has re-emerged. Floods are at a loss to suggest a cause. Logic would indicate that it is not to do with the installation given the outlined course of events. Does anyone have any thoughts as to what is going on?
  6. We are seeking pilots to volunteer for a study examining how meteorological information displays affect pilot weather decision-making. Licensed pilots and currently enrolled student pilots who are at least 18 years of age and live in the US are eligible to participate. As you know, adverse weather conditions in aviation can lead to delays, deviations, and even accidents. As a result, the Georgia Institute of Technology is conducting a study on how different weather display technology influences pilot decision-making. As a participant in this study, you will be asked to complete an online demog
  7. I am researching to create a profile of the Texan for the Showcase. There are a lot of photos listed Texan Top Class on the web, and airport data lists a lot of Texan Top Class, but the FS website doesn't mention it and it is not listed in the variants on Wikipedia. However the Texan EVO is on the FS website and wiki but not elsewhere. Is Top Class an alternative name for the EVO? There are fixed gear and retractable versions of the EVO. Also, is the glass panel available on the Club, or just the analogue panel? I hope you can answer these questions for me so I can prepare the profile.
  8. Hi All, I'm just updating my logbook online and adding all my flying history. While doing this I looked to see if I can find photo's of all the aircraft I have flown. I have found for all of them except two and was wondering if anyone here might have them for me. Both were Arena Aviation tomahawks being flown out of Archerfield in the late 90s. BVJ, and FLA. Many thanks, J
  9. Hi, I want to know that for Rotax engine service bullition SB-914-039 that required clarification that who can give authorization for increased of TBO from 12 years to 15 years?
  10. A couple of years ago I was given a large supply of aircraft colour slides, unlabelled, which included the four below. I have disregarded these until now, but feel they could be included in the aircraft showcase. What I need to know, if you can help, is the make and model of these gliders - I know nothing about gliders. I am guessing the first two photos are the same machine.
  11. Had a yellow stain appearing from around the left side of the cowl , looks like it was coming out of the exhaust where it fits into the head , could it be that the pipe wasn’t seated properly and maybe allowing unburnt fuel to leak out hence the yellow colour, I’ve had a go at reseating the compression ring but haven’t flown yet , has anyone come across this. Greg
  12. Hello all, I have recently changed my oil cooler in new (150hours) rotax 912ULS as the temps were slightly high. Oil temps are now good but the CHT’s are higher than before (expected) due to positioning. my engine has the newer CHT limit of 120° my question is are these temps ok. Or should I be concerned and try to lower them? (°C) OAT CHT. OIL 17° 94° 88° (Cruise) 22° 100° 90° (high speed cruise) 20° 110° 105° (extended climb) my CHT temps used to be 70-90°
  13. Looking to buy a set of Rotax 912 Intake Manifolds to install a larger crossover tubes, a la https://www.flygas.info/2017/06/18/311/ Anyone got any spares? Cheers Murray
  14. Hello all. Perhaps someone can figure this out for me. Yesterday as I was warming up my engine prior to departing for Austfly at Narromine, I noticed a big oil smear being blown over my floor windows by the prop blast. After shutting down and removing the cowls, it was obvious that lots of oil had suddenly leaked out in the vicinity of the oil filter. It had been blown all over the lower half of the engine, over-filled my belly cowl and was pouring onto the tarmac. It took about 200ml to bring the dipstick reading back to where it was before startup. After a thorough cleanup, I res
  15. Hi just chasing some info about a 12 volt voltage regulator issue for a mate. Its not an aircraft engine application but any answers may be helpful for aviation engines in the future. I was asked to have a look at a 12 regulator charge issue on a sail boat's inboard 'BUKH' engine. What is happening is when he places the positive terminal spade to the regular it sparks. He has no isolation switch in the circuit so the positive is live. Would the regulator have a fault / short internally or should the positive feed be made open (disconnect positive from the battery or fit an isolation s
  16. Hi All Recreational Flying (.com) provides an important service to all aviators and as the site is growing we need a couple of staff to help manage a site feature for everyone. Currently we are looking for 2 volunteers who who would love to help in: 1. Quiz Master - a person that would enjoy creating aviation related quizzes in the new Quiz section. You could create any number of quizzes that you may like for example on BAK, aviation history, emergency reactions, human factors, aircraft histories etc etc etc 2. Event Manager - a person who would like to keep the Event Calendar updated
  17. Thinking of a trip up north, probably as far as Cairns, with my brother who’s visiting from the US. What is it like during the November period for flying in the top end?
  18. Hi all, Looking at getting some rod ends to make some pushrods - control stick to elevator bellcrank, torque tube to flaperon bellcranks, rudder pedals to noseleg, etc. Looks like rod ends come in male and female with male seeming more prevalent. From what I can make out from the 701 plans, the flaperon rods are shown to be solid steel rod with the ends threaded and female rod ends. What's the common practice? It occurs to me that male rod ends going into a nut that's welded to chrome moly tube would be a lighter solution. Is that an acceptable compromise? How about safety? A
  19. I am so hoping to fly to Edinburgh in October.. I have my flights with Emirates in credit.. However I am told I have to have a special permit .my reason being mum will be 100 in Nov.. I know I have to isolate when I arrive. But how does this work? Anyone?
  20. I am trying to identify a recently donated home built ultra lite partly built by a (diseased) local pilot unfortunately with no plans. We wish to complete it and display it in our "local Aviation" section. The closest I can come to identifying it is a Boorabee only it has a nose wheel. Any help or suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
  21. Does anyone know where to purchase 15x6.00x6 6ply tyres
  22. I've read the forums about the choices available when choosing a Tie Down system. However, there doesn’t seem much new added to these forums in the last two years. Anybody found anything that really works? Links to new or improved systems eagerly sought. I’m also interested in opinions of rope type vs ratchet webbing strap types.....Thanks
  23. I'm finding it almost impossible to find through a google search suppliers of Stits Poly Fiber in Australia, let alone Brisbane. I also cant find any pricing on Aircraft and Spruce catalogues. Does anyone know where I can purchase it and how much it is. I'm also unable to find suppliers of Scotchweld 2216 b/a epoxy resin glue in quart kits. Any help would be much appreciated.
  24. Im looking for a microlight pilot to train me up i was just wondering if anybody knows of any in melbourne can contact me on 0411 095 735 or have any numbers i can call! Thanks guys
  25. I'm looking for help to clarify the position for LSA build and registration in Australia. Currently looking at beginning a build of a SPA Panther LSA. It's a single seat aluminium kit build from Florida USA, that meets the US LSA rules (according to the website). As I see it my options are to build under the SAAA or the RAA. If I go with SAAA I can register the Panther as a VH amateur built experimental? Is that correct? If I go with RAA, it would be registered 55-xxxx. Correct? So what are the advantages and disadvantages of each direction. I got my GFPT years ago and haven't f
