About Me

  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. Has anyone heard of “Australian Performance Props”? I can’t find anything online about them.
  4. Out of curiousity what other things are you guys interested in like Cars, Boats, Gardening, Technology, Jobs, Home Maintenance ?????????????????
  5. 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 rel
  6. 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
  7. 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?
  8. 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
  9. 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 ???
  10. 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.
  11. 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.......
  12. Ok, the site software is going well, I added the Events system so what do you want me to do next?
  13. 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.
  14. 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???
  15. 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.
  16. 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
  17. 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:
  18. 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
  19. 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
  20. 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
  21. 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.
  22. 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.
  23. 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 offerin
  24. Hi Is there a local distributor for the aeropup and supapup aircraft kit here in Australia? Thanks
