About Me

  1. 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
  2. Hi Is there a local distributor for the aeropup and supapup aircraft kit here in Australia? Thanks
  3. I am looking for something to replace my Brumby 610 Lycoming powered. I am looking for a big cabin , 130 kts , 4 seats, what’s for sale?
  4. I am interested in the short field capabilities and very low stall performance of these aircraft. Does anyone know if any of these aircraft have made it to Oz? http://www.katmai-kenai.com/
  5. Out of curiousity what other things are you guys interested in like Cars, Boats, Gardening, Technology, Jobs, Home Maintenance ?????????????????
  6. Looking at the site statistics today and I am alarmed at an obvious downward trend. The number of "registered" users coming to the site every day seems to be maintained at an average of around 250 to 275 per day however years ago we were averaging 600 registered users per day peaking at up to 1,000 (the graph peaks are a result of the weekly email that goes out). I believe this drop is caused purely by Facebook. But what is concerning is the huge downward trend in the number of posts per day. This could be caused by Covid-19 but I would have thought that the numbers would increase given that e
  7. Hi! I need to interview seasoned pilots for thesis purposes. Would you help me? Thanks!
  8. Good Morning, I am posting to invite pilots who are interested in furthering the current research and focus on Human Factors to take part in a survey. Pilots of any category (Military, GA, Civil, Recreational, Student, Commercial) and any flight hours are invited to take part in this short (10-15min) survey looking into Emotional Intelligence and Decision Making in high-consequence situations. If there is interest, I would be happy to post a results document after the research has concluded. Link to Survey: https://rmit.au1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_eKCI7qGo6yJDuDP I am happy to chat a
  9. Anybody here own or fly a Pelican PL or know where I can get some main landing gear legs for one? They were a Canadian kit years back and since been taken over by Ballard Sport Aircraft in Quebec - have had no luck e-mailing or calling them Home
  10. Any ideas please on the most suitable lubricant to help fit bungee rings. I'm replacing mine again, and want to make them slide easier around the mounts as they are stretched - no easy task as each ring has a test load of 1160 lbs (527 Kg) and they are doubled up around the mounting pegs. Current thinking is tyre bead mounting paste, but am not sure about its long-term effects on the rubber strands and cotton covering of the rings.
  11. Considering purchase of the Aera 660, have read many reviews etc which are mainly overseas ones. The vendors here simply publish the Garmin blurb and nothing relative to Australia. I am interested in subscription costs etc which I believe is Jepessen? ADSB in is available as a Garmin accessory but I was wondering IF the new Skyecho unit would connect to the 660? I know people use iPads etc to do a similar job with Avplan etc etc, but I want a stand alone dedicated solution. Any help appreciated.
  12. I think it is time to revisit the site, its function, its capability, its service to all recreational aviators. Time to perhaps look at a Wish List of what the site could perhaps deliver/provide you all...so how about it, what would you like to put on the Wish List? I will start although derived from a specific user's request: Aviation Book List - details about the many different books written about aviation Aviation Movie List - details about the many different movies concerning aviation Plain English Weather Converter After all, I am stuck here in Melbourne in lock down so it will g
  13. 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?
  14. I always thought that the carburettors fitted to the Rotax 900 range were altitude compensating (auto adjust) to at least 8,000 ft - perhaps not as precisely/accurately as one might like but a fair compromise never the less. I recently read a comment, by Ivan Shaw, where he categorically states that the Bing carburettors, as fitted to Rotax 912 range, are not altitude compensating. Did a little additional reserch, only to find the exact opposite statement from other authoritative figures. So whats it to be:: Are they altitude compensating? To some degree? If so to what altitude
  15. I am looking for any information on the overhaul of a Subaru NSI gearbox. I would like any parts break down and or a supplier of the same. The prop is free wheeling , so it will be a sprag issue I suspect.
  16. Just wondering what value the "brains trust" put on factory built aircraft - compared with the same unit, kit built ? So this is a question about perceived value, ability to train & hire - it is not about build quality etc etc
  17. Would love to see your instrument panel set ups! Post some pics, and maybe list what instruments if its hard to make out. I'm interested in steam gauge type setups. Not too interested (and cant afford!) glass cockpit setups. Also, what are peoples thoughts on the essentials. For instance, I virtually never look at the VSI. I was thinking I would be naughty for not fitting one, but on another thread somewhere someone pointed out that on an RA-AUS plane its not really needed. In which case I wouldn't feel bad leaving it out, AND my wallet would feel ok about it too ?
  18. Has anyone heard of “Australian Performance Props”? I can’t find anything online about them.
  19. 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.......
  20. Hi all, Can anyone tell me where I could buy Loctite Anti Seize 8151 (or equivilent) for use on muffler ball joints on a Rotax 912ULS exhaust? I was hoping to source some locally in Brisbane CBD area. Thanks in advance :)
  21. We are interested to know the best and the least helpful experiences you've had with your aircraft manufacturer. This is a very short survey. If you are the 24th or the 100th person to complete the form, we'll send you $100. Manufacturer Survey Thanks Stuart
  22. 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.
  23. Hi everyone, It´s time for me to exchange all the rubber fuel tubings in my SavannahS, Rotax 912 (eight years since built). Four dimensions (6, 7, 8, 10 and 11 mm) were delivered with the kit and as some dimensions are difficult to find (particularly if you want a quality brand) I wonder if all dimensions are really needed. For instance, the 7 mm tube is used to connect the mechanic pump with the electric pump while the 6 mm tube connects the mechanic pump with the "spider". In other words, fuel to the mechanic pump is delivered via 7 mm tube and fuel from the mechanic pump via 6 mm tube.
  24. I'm sure someone here can enlighten me on this, and apologies if it is a really dumb question, but I have not spent any flying time in the RAA world (yet). I am somewhat bemused by the information on the Jabiru website regarding the MTOWs of their J230/J430. If I were to buy a factory-built J230, it appears the MTOW is 600kg, which I assume is because they want it to fit into RAA parameters. If I buy a J230 kit, same deal. But if I buy a J430 kit, the MTOW is suddenly 760kg. Hang on - is this not the EXACT same airframe as the J230?? Does this mean that a J430 has to be VH registered?
