Hi Mike

Thanks for the info on your baggage vent fan.  Found a computer fan at Staples. Next will be a vent cover probably from A building supply store.

The throttle link looks good.  I hope it works out for you.

So Mike, Are you going dual throttle on yours?  I would certainly recommend a single throttle, but if you are already headed down that path, good luck.  I think the single most thing that helped me was to put doublers on both the panel and firewall where the cable passes through.  There was enough flex in those parts to make hysteresis pretty bad. Once I stiffened them up, I had only fritction to overcome.

Sport Cruiser worked well for me.  I got 5hrs in it and I transitioned well.  I think sport cruiser was bought by piper, then very recently sold.  So I think we're talking about essentially the same bird.  Just be ready to take off when you apply that power.  Ground handling is better in our Zodies than the sport cruiser in my opinion.  I wasn't to fond of differential braking and castering nosewheel.  The pedal geometry on that sport cruiser seems to lend itself to the possibility of landing with a bit of brake on one side or the other... Ask me how I know.  I just kept my feet low on the pedals after that.  I'm no expert, and these are just my experiences, but I found it very valuable to have at least some light sport experience.  They just don't fly like 172's which isn't necissarily bad, just something to be aware of.

Adding Louvers to cowl for cooling 3300

Has anybody tried to cool down a 3300 with louvers added to the cowl?

Arizona 601/650 Pilots...Question

Posted on April 10, 2013 at 1:26pm 3 Comments

My 601XL-B is now signed off by FAA to begin phase I testing, however, the flight school in Prescott that I was taking instruction at decided to get out of fixed-wing training.  Does anybody recommend another flight school/instructor with an "LSA" in Arizona, that I could contact for finishing my "Sport Pilot" lic.?

 

Thanks in advance...

Mike
