    MP vs RPM for % power.

    This was what I was looking for. Thanks! Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    MP vs RPM for % power.

    A long time ago I run across a chart that was a rule of thumb for figuring percent power if you don't have an engine monitor. I cannot find that anywhere. Does anybody have one they want to share on this thread? It's something like 47 is equal to 65% power or something like that. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk

    ARI mod and Wing Landing lights?

    Talk to John Breda about the wings lights. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk

    Laminar Flow Wing and disturbed flow

    Summertime flying gave me a gain of 4 knots. Winter time flying saw a gain of 6 knots. I had the LASAR closure as the only mod to my airplane prior. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk

    Laminar Flow Wing and disturbed flow

    As a point of reference, I have seen as much as 3 knots of decreased air speed while flying in rain. The laminar flow airfoil is extremely sensitive to contamination. Not as much as a Varieze, but still. You probably said an earlier post, but how much airspeed do you think you have lost? Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk

    Paint or interior first

    I'm going to chime with: Panel, Interior, paint. As Paul said, you will use the panel on all flights. Solid, reliable instruments and systems are a must... interior and paint are niceties.

    How do you deal with ice?

    The Ice shows up very well on the black that's painted on the front of my wings. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk

  10. Take a really close look at the red and green tubing. The red stuff gets brittle and cracks and you won't even see it. if you don't have one already, go to Harbor Freight Tools and buy a brake bleeder kit. Pull the vacuum line off each side running to your servos. plug the hand vacuum pump into that line and pump to about 5 PSI. The system should hold pressure, or at the very least, bleed off very very slowly. Both the red and green tubing in my airplane were very brittle and broken. Jerry told me a good way to check for leaks is to smoke a cigar and blow the smoke through the system. I don't smoke cigars, so that was out for me but I did do the vacuum check. In addition to my tubing, I had two servos that were leaking. You wouldn't know it by looking at them, you could only tell when there was pressure applied to them with soapy water as an indicator.

    What’s your short field landing procedure?

    My short-field technique is to not go off the end of the runway.

    Honestly, how bad is this?

    @M20Doc would probably be able to provide some info.

    Looks pretty icy around 5,000 feet. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
