Re: Smoke System for N987MB

Bruce,

No, I am not formation qualified. To be honest I am not a fan of formation outside of people I absolutely trust. Too easy for things to go wrong, and I have had too many instances of "close calls". Smoke install was just for fun!

Smoke System for N987MB

I have been sitting on the parts for a smoke system for well over a year. I even bought a 55 gallon drum of smoke oil in the fall. I have been dragging my feet installing the smoke system because I couldn't figure out some of the basics - such as where to mount the pump. I wanted it as removable as ...

Forum Software Upgrade

Tonight I upgraded the forum software to the latest level. As you regulars have probably noticed, the spammers had gotten a little out of control as of lately. The new software should hopefully make it more difficult for them to sell us the little blue pills CJ eats like tic-tacs! :lol: Let me know ...

Re: Avionics Upgrade

Hey Mike, I am working with GRT on an issue when the 440 is driving the A/P through the Sport it will fly through a fix before starting its turn, this does not happen with the 440 driving the A/P directly. Are you seeing anything similar? Hmm, I don't recall if I was driving my AP from the GRT or d...

Hey Skid- I have a GTN650 connected to a SportSX. I have been working on my instrument rating in it and am very impressed with the combination. I also have a TruTrak Vizion 385 which is amazing for the coupled approach I've done. I am looking forward to finishing up my rating and really seeing the f...

Re: Black Otter 2019!

I am a little embarrassed it's taken me this long to post the pics from the Otter, but here they are. 26 of us! Lots of fun was had. Already looking forward to next year.

Aiming to arrive 530ish?

There might be a slight issue....they claim they didn't order enough prime rib :o . I am going to call them when they open at 4pm and let everyone know. We have a few alternative places picked just in case.

Re: Black Otter 2019!

This will be my 8th Oshkosh, 7th in my RV-7 and 6th consecutive! I don't recall if I went to The Black Otter my first year - I drove in from Chicago and only spent one night (CJ's tent in Camp Scholler :o ). Let's make it Tuesday. Who's got rides, and how many can you squeeze in? Right now for atten...

Black Otter 2019!

Wow, how did Oshkosh sneak up on me so quickly this year???

Who's in for Black Otter 2019? What day works best? I rather liked Tuesday last year. Only downside is <not> missing out on the Van's banquet.

Thoughts?

Re: Drilling stainless firewall *HELP*

What sort of drill are you using? I don't recall anything special about drilling SS.....my drill bits are from Avery, and I used BoeLube , however, any cutting oil should work? My thought is you might be turning the drill bit too fast. A slower speed drill with light pressure applied to the bit (let...

Re: Newbie with Pneumatic Squeezer Woes

When I went to a builders class wayyyyy back in 2005, a fellow builder faced the same dilemma as you - sticker shock over the pneumatic squeezer. Our teacher echoed what Bruce said - don't try to save money on good tools. Specifically the pneumatic squeezer, as it is one of the more complicated tool...
