Hi David,

Glad to see you are finishing up your Cruzer. Like your panel. Looking good.

I have a couple of sets of the wing/spar fairing printed. I currently have two sets in black and I am just finishing a set in white (with fine layers). The standard I print is .28 mm line height. You can see the printing lines up close but from a distance they are barely perceivable. I have just recently experimented with .20 mm line height. It takes about 50% longer to print but the finished product is much smother. The .28 mm line height is easier to paint as long as you use an acrylic primer. I would need to charge $90.00 for the .20 mm due the the extended print time. Just let me know which you prefer. I can send out the week yet. Your can pay me via PayPal. If you do not have a PayPal account I can send a you an invoice. When the invoice is paid I will ship them out.

By the way if you want black in the .20 line height it would take about a week to print (also have silver available to be printed).

Have a good night.

Dean

Hi David:

Good to hear from you. So glad you have completed your Cruzer project. When is the FAA coming over to certify your plane? Or is it done already? Call me to chat: two 1 nine, two two 1, 1 two 1 nine. If I do not answer, leave a message and I will call you right back.

Real glad I have another Cruzer in the area, we can now fly around together. Include Michigan City and Laporte as part of your 40 hour fly around area.

Care...

By the way, what was the lead time on your fuselage? If it is taking a while, maybe I should go ahead and think about ordering mine.

Thanks Mr. Mason. I am going to add you to my friends list. Maybe we can keep in touch. I may have to bother you on occasion, since you are a step or two ahead of me.

Dynon p lead resistors

Posted on October 5, 2019 at 7:48pm 11 Comments

Hope to solve soon but do any of my fellow builders have experience in the total resistor value needed to solve erratic rpm readings on Dynon HDX unit and Continental O -200? Tried 30k, 62k, 92k, off p lead and the display still goes bonkers at rpm exceeding 2300. Thanks in advance.

Another possible solution to help with crossing of elevator cables and reduce heavy right stick pressure.

Posted on September 20, 2019 at 1:05pm 3 Comments

There are a lot of great ideas from other builders and I learn a lot from prior posts. Just passing along how I solved the cable issue for others to consider. It worked for me but each can judge if it’s in their best interest. Posted for entertaining purchases only. “Keep the attorneys away” lol. Like others I realized I i needed to cut the bellcrank off the aileron tube. Before doing so I market where the factory location is for the pivot on the elevator arm /brackets under the center tunnel… Continue
