Re: Two Years Flying!

Wow, how time literally flies! Yesterday was my second anniversary of my project being an actual airplane. When the prop stopped after my celebratory flight the hobbs showed 496 hours. Not bad for two years if I do say so myself. This is waaaayyyy too much fun to be legal! Chad, I will put your box...

Re: DIY: Cable to record cockpit audio on your Smartphone/GoPro

Hi Chris, First and foremost, welcome to Rivetbangers! I don't think you need to be concerned with the mic jack, as the mic audio is fed back through the headphones via the intercom. You only need the 1/4" plug and jack. I haven't used this with the GoPro yet (I have the GoPro mounted on the tail of...

Re: ELT Antenna Placement

Craig, I went through a similar dilemma on my RV-7 on where to put the antenna. Most of my concern was it ripping off the fuselage during an accident. After analyzing all of the different locations, I decided putting it under the empennage fairing provided the most protection of the antenna during a...

Re: ELT Antenna Placement

Craig, Here is the picture you were trying to post. Apologies for the Gallery being so cludgey - it is a left over artifact from the previous owner of RB. I keep it around just to make sure the picture links still work from previous posts. I suggest using PhotoBucket to post pictures in. It's a fant...

Re: Oshkosh 2016 pictorial report

Painless- A++ Job on RivetBangers media coverage of Oshkosh 2016! But then again you didn't have much to compete with the previous two RB photographers - CJ and Peter (Aka BriBri). http://i86.photobucket.com/albums/k86/painlessdds/994e00f3-d313-48d4-a1bd-366392e08233_zpsy9ncpkkd.jpg http://i86.photo...

OK, 4:30 is the hard departure time. Everyone plan to be at the rendezvous location at 4:00 - 4:15 so we can figure out what car everyone is going in.

Re: Otter 2016

What's a convenient place for everyone to meat <pun intended> for our trip to The Black Otter? I'm thinking 5pm around the SOS brothers tent - it should be easy for people giving rides to meet up there? I'm open to suggestions.

Re: Boost pump

Joe, The Andair fuel pump installation is quite neat because all of the plumbing is built into the pump. I know CJ has the Andair pump and is happy with it. My only concern with that pump is Andair's customer service seems to be lacking. They are an England-based company, and aren't known for their ...
