About Me

  1. 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
  2. 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:
  3. 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
  4. 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.
  5. 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???
  6. Does it seem strange to anyone other than me that the factory supplied( in my case factory fitted) 600 Kg upgrade spacers are of a thinner aluminium section than the clevis on the strut which straddles the two wing attachment plates that the upgrade plate is rivetted in between. The result is that the attachment plates have a lot of stress on them at the closest rivet on the upgrade plate. It feels like the upgrade plate should be the same thickness as the strut clevis.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. I was wondering ... If you were building a plane and intended to use an unusual engine for a plane, hypothetically, a 1000 cc 4-cylinder engine from a Morris Minor, how would you determine the pitch and diameter of the propeller you could attache to it?
  11. I have 2 Microair radios in my Jab and i both are not very good, i would not depend on them. Can anyone suggest the best value radio available. Also what transponder can i fit, must it be a mode "S" or can i fit a second hand one from a local helicopter guy. Thanks
  12. Which is the better system for recording an aircraft's Total Time in Service (or pilot's flying time for that matter)? There are at least two ways of recording an aircraft's TTIS - Tacho time or Hobbs Meter time. Although aiming for the same target, the two methods record different things. Tacho time is a recording of the time an engine has been operating. It is linked to engine revolutions per minute (RPM). Tacho Time records the time at some specific RPM. It is most accurate at cruise RPM, and least accurate while taxiing or stationary with the engine running. At these times, the clock runs slower. That might be an accurate measurement of wear and tear as one would expect the engine components to be less stressed around idle speed. Hobbs time is time recorded by an electrically powered clock. The Hobbs meter can be activated in a number of ways: It can measure the time that the electrical system is on. This maximizes the recorded time. It can be activated by oil pressure running into a pressure switch, and therefore runs while the engine is running. It can be activated by another switch, either an airspeed sensing vane under a wing or a pressure switch attached to the landing gear. In these cases, the meter only measures the time the aircraft is actually flying. With method 2, the Hobbs reading will be closest to the Tacho time, but will always be higher because of the slower reading rate of the Tacho when the engine is at low revs. With method 3, the Hobbs meter records the time that the airframe was subjected to in-flight forces. With method 1, leave the Master turned ON when you hangar the plane and your maintenance period will be short, without any flying being done. What is the best way to record TTIS to balance the needs of good maintenance and economical running? Each method introduces inaccuracies. Perhaps the compromise is to wire the Hobbs meter to the oil pressure switch so that Hobbs time and Tacho time are more closely aligned. The Hobbs meter will account for the under reading of the Tacho on the ground to account for engine use, and allow for structural wear to the airframe during movement on the ground.
  13. Has any one moved the ignition leads from inside the cooling plenum chambers to outside the chambers on a 230 . Looking at the location of the leads they seem to block an awful lot of air flow to the heads
  14. Ok, the site software is going well, I added the Events system so what do you want me to do next?
  15. Always been curious about this, but in general, is buying a Hangar and renting it out, a good investment? What are the factors/gotchas to consider. I guess Location is a big one, and demand/waitlists for hangar space. Or is it like most things in Aviation - money Pit
  16. Hi Is there a local distributor for the aeropup and supapup aircraft kit here in Australia? Thanks
  17. I know all the States have different lockdown rules at the moment, but are there any Flying schools that have managed to stay open and are still operating at the moment? RAAus have not said any more than As such RAAus strongly encourages pilots and flight training operators considering undertaking private, recreational, or flying training activities, to carefully review and to follow, the advice or regulations which have been published in relation to social distancing, travel restrictions, or any prohibited or restricted activity. You should also consider your personal risk factors related to age, health status and other considerations, just as you would by using the IMSAFE check prior to flying. Flying is no different to any other activity and while it has not been explicitly mentioned as being exempt from any restrictions currently in place please keep these restrictions in mind when considering what to do. COVID-19 advice and any associated regulatory requirements are made and published by Commonwealth, and/or State and Territory departments. Importantly, the advice and regulatory requirements may change very quickly and hence should be regularly monitored. Different states and territories are enforcing these rules in different ways and the last thing we want to see is our members potentially receiving penalties a result of going for a fly. In NSW for example, if you travel to a regional location and you don’t live there or have business there (i.e. landing at an airfield just because you wanted to go for a fly) may see you end up with a fine of $11,000 if you’re an individual or $27,500 for your business. This was announced late into the evening of 30 March and we are sure there will be more announcements, both federally and in relation to individual states and territories. This rapid and frequent changing in policy makes it difficult to keep up. Perhaps the safest thing to do is simply not go flying if you’re not sure. Our planes will still be here after this pandemic passes so let’s make sure we’re healthy and haven’t wasted valuable fuel money on pointless fines! Michael Monck, Chair, and Michael Linke, CEO RAAus
  18. I would guess that this might represent a marriage made in hell for the die had Jab/Rotax crowd but I would be interested to have some informed hopefully factual comments on this aircraft merits/shortcomings. So - how does the aircraft perform, particularly in comparison with a Jabiru 120 Hp powered J230 ???
  19. Two of the famous aircraft of WWll were the Stuka and the Corsair. Both were designed with gull wings. I wonder what the advantage of that design was over the usual horizontal design.
  20. Hi Gurus, If a person could positively identify the manufacturer of the following tail wheel assembly that would be great. Please disregard the tail wheel itself, that will not ident the assembly. Reason, new grease cap is required, and I want to get a spare bushing too! Grease cap is 1.25 inch or 31.7mm All exact answers gratefully received. Please see attached photos.......
  21. Has anyone heard of “Australian Performance Props”? I can’t find anything online about them.
  22. Out of curiousity what other things are you guys interested in like Cars, Boats, Gardening, Technology, Jobs, Home Maintenance ?????????????????
  23. Did anybody see the recent article going around about the 3D printed aircraft. parts of my designed aircraft will have printed parts in load bearing areas. Has anybody on this site made load bearing parts for aircraft? If so what experiences have you had?
  24. 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
