  1. Why does the FAA have to meddle in everything and make aviation a complete pain in the ass? The instruction will still go on but now a different kind of compensation will occur. Where I live there is an aerial spray company that has been crop dusting for over 35 years, has every single needed signature required and has endorsements a mile long. The FAA did an audit of his logs and a signature back 30 years ago is not legible now his entire business is in an uproar because a signature is not readable from the ink smearing. The FAA needs to stick to the big cans in the sky. General aviation
  2. I did. it turned out to be the fuel servo. I sent it out and they swapped it for another rebuilt. problem went away and its been running good since.
  3. Thanks for the replies. now to see if I can get the chosen one that's an APs here to listen. I'll bet mine is full of dirt and debris. That boot looks like it has never been off in 3K+ hours.
  4. Wanted to Fly my 201 this morning, all pre-flight checks were fine, started on 3rd blade, THEN, on turning on radio master, got a high pitch squeal in the headsets, and extremely high amperage reading (with no normal taper off). Radios dead even though radio cb not popped.

    My guess is either alternator or regulator is/are bad.

    At the Poplar Grove AirMotive shop now for diagnosis/repair....what's the consensus as to the problem?


  5. Looking for some input. I have a trim issue that I thought was in the u-joints that were totally slopped out. Had my mechanic swap them out and it is better but still not smooth. I disconnect the linkage and the trim wheel moves from lock to lock with gentle friction and seems fine. I am guessing the problem is in the tail screw. Are those rebuildable or are they throw away when bad? Also how does one remove the rear assembly with out total disassembly of tail. my AP is talking about removing the tail. I don't see why that is needed but I might be wrong. Wouldn't be the first time.
  6. Thanks. I figured it was a long shot. Sent from my E6910 using Tapatalk
  7. Does anyone know what alloy Mooney used to make the trim control rods that are coupled with universal joints. is it 2024T3, 6061T6, 5052-0. ETC. Thanks
  8. Thanks but I am not sure I want to go that route. I am shocked that Cygnet Aerospace would be so greedy for their product but I guess it falls in line if it has to do with flying get as much as you can.
  9. Trying to get all the needed materials and supplies to do this install and after reading the STC I am totally confused. 2 years ago MIL C-27500 twisted pair was an accepted connection method between the G5s, GMU11, and the GAD29B. Today the GFC500 is requiring CAN24TST120 to link the CAN-BUS. So my question is I obviously have to use the new CAN24TST120 to link the autopilot system can-bus but when it daisy chains to the previously installed network can it be linked to the Mil C-27500 or do I have to remove all the old twisted pair and install the new requirement? The STC isn't clear and
  10. So I am looking for a a 22AWG 6 or 12 conductor coil cord for an autopilot and I just about fell on the floor when I went to purchase one. Anyone know of options?
  11. It should be a rare case but I have towed two aircraft off the runway here in ND where the tire lost all the air after takeoff and the pilot didn't know about it till he landed and had a handful of airplane to deal with. A simple $240 system that adds little to nothing for weight seems like cheap insurance. I was just wondering why it would be an issue. Sent from my E6910 using Tapatalk
  12. The few systems I could find for aircraft specifically say for experimental planes only. I would think having a system that has been well tested on vehicles of all shapes and sizes for all sorts of duties I would think it would be a no brainier. As for people putting things in or on their airplane that can't happen. It's illegal and the book written by the gods says so. [emoji23] Sent from my E6910 using Tapatalk
  13. I was repairing a trike for a buddy of mine after having a rear wheel go flat and damage the rim and suspension. He was hell bent on not letting that happen again and installed a 3 sensor TPMS system that screws on to the valve stems and transmits to a display on the handle bars. I thought it was a great idea especially for a low wing and looked up systems for aircraft. As expected it is not allowed on certified aircraft. WHY?
  14. Oil screens and oil filters. I am not impressed with the sick feeling I get having to look at those items. I can understand why some would rather not look. I am glad I dodged the bullet this time. Thanks for the quick replies. I am moving on to the windshield.
