We teach a few groups of kids about airplanes each year and part of the discussion is always the four forces of flight and later some airplane tours. My airplane is not painted and I always tell…Continue

We had a very noticeable Nose wheel Squeak on our CH750 STOL with the rounded front tire mount. We lifted the nose off the ground in order to find the problem. After removing the wheel and checking…Continue

Inspection was completed on September 23rd and first flight on the 24th. Currently trying to get as much flight time in the remaining fall flight weather. Many thanks to all on this forum who have posted their experiences, lessons learned, and especially photos. Without these resources I would only be half done by now. I hope to share more of my experiences when the weather gets worse. I am hoping I can help others they way this community has helped my build.

It is critical that I work on my airplane every day in order to make progress. I find that if I have more than 24 hours between sessions it is way too hard to remember where I left the tools ! :-)

I just received my generation 4 engine today. I also received the firewall forward kit provided by Arion aircraft the US Jabiru dealer. Everything looks great and it seems to be a very complete kit. I will post more details at a later date, but the Jabiru engine and FWF kit combined seem to be the cheapest combination after the Viking engine and certainly the cheapest for a new engine.

Arion Aircraft was right next door to Jabiru USA, so I've met them including Nick Otterback, the owner. It seems to have been a fairly seamless transition from Jab USA (later Jabiru North America) to Arion. I've spoken to a few people who have done business with them since the transition and it has all been positive!
I have the Aeroelectric CD. I can see the requirements, but would feel more comfortable if someone with more knowledge than I have gives exact details.
I noticed your comment on John Austin's flap actuator switch.
I don't know whether you are knowledgeable enough about a problem I have, but here goes:
I am installing Ray Allen 301 sticks on my Cruzer. There are two issues: the use of two sticks to control a relay, AND in my instance, wanting to use the stick as the switch for the flaps. I can use the relays that come with the sticks for the trim motor as it is of low amperage and grounds through the relay. But, I cannot figure out how to have the stick relay trigger a relay to operate the flaps.
Is this within your knowledge base?
