  1. 6’4” is not a problem, we had/have a 6’9” member here who had no issues, The low seating position makes it difficult getting in and out for some people (bad technique, bad knees, overweight, etc). If it’s not comfortable for you, there’s no point in going further. For those of us who have or had sports cars is usually a non issue.
  2. Pick one close enough for you to easily get to so you can be involved in the process. Important if you want to guarantee a good outcome.
  3. Short answer: polysulfide compound. Long answer: PR-1425 Class B is an aircraft windshield and canopy sealant. It has a service temperature range from -65°F to (-52°C) to 250°F (121°C), with intermittent excursions up to 275°F (135°C). This material is designed for fillet sealing of properly prepared glass, polycarbonate, acrylic and other aircraft sealing applications. This product is specifically formulated not to craze substrates. The cured sealant exhibits excellent resistance to UV and weather exposure. PR-1425 Class B is a two-part, dichromate cured polysulfide compound. The uncured material is a low sag, thixotropic paste, suitable for application by extrusion gun or spatula. This sealant has excellent adhesion to common aircraft substrates. It overlaps and isn’t easily removed as silicone, LEDs are suppose to last a long time, my mechanic put it on, so I assume he can remove it. He used it on my windows as well:
  4. When you power up, you should see a message about it aligning, do you see this? Is the plane stationary and level?
  5. I would think a hard nose landing or severe turbulence could cause it.
  6. I would replace with the thicker glass if you don’t already have it.
  7. I don’t notice the flare, the lights are far enough recessed I don’t see them, and new lenses shouldn’t be reflecting the light passing through them. My AP used PRC to seal the lenses. I gained 3 knots by doing this alone.
  8. The fault may not be the button, but the button wires even back at the GFC 507 controller. I would try to visually check the entire length of wires.
  9. I got a Concorde and 2 years later it started to weaken. I now use it as a utility battery, last week I put a charger on it and noticed it was leaking at the seam. So far it’s replacement seems to be working fine.
  10. I opted out, and searching database using link above for me will return nothing.
  11. That’s what mine did too, the vertical rails weren’t sheet metal, the look pretty robust, maybe 1/8” thick.
  12. Maybe post some pictures, someone might be able to give you some advice. Is it the main spar, the skin, ribs, stringers…
  13. How many hours have you put on it since it was fixed?
