    What lateral float is acceptable in the front and rear stab location, and where is that specified? I have more freedom than I would like in an FX-3 Carbon Cub.

    ILS implies LOC and GS. Satisfactory GS reception may be more difficult than satisfactory VOR/LOC reception. It certainly requires more equipment.

    I have no ILS at my base airport but there are...

    I have had several near misses. Most were with power planes than nearly ran me down while I was thermalling in a glider. I have used PCAS, FLARM, and ADS-B In and Out. None of these reduced my...

    There is a huge range of capability for ADS-B In. Just having traffic depicted on a "tablet" may help with traffic awareness when workload is low. It takes a good aural warning system to...

    I had assumed those pins provide the rotational coupling between the fork and the thrust plate. If that is correct then any time the tail wheel shimmies the pins are subjected to a rapidly...

    My wishing to check that my ELT transmits valid GPS coordinates has absolutely nothing to do with, and is not intended to be a substitute for, any test required by regulation. My interest is simply...

    I have no idea what that means. There is no requirement for an ELT to transmit GPS position. There is no requirement to test that it does. If I use an SDR and, for example, multipsk to decode my...

    I would consider the ability of some, perhaps most, 406 ELT to transmit the GPS coordinates of the crash site to be a significant operational change. Unfortunately the self test of my ELT does not,...

    Did the OP ever define how this NAV antenna would be used? It's one thing to get an acceptable LOC signal at the FAF. Quite another to get an acceptable VOR signal at low altitude mid point on an...

    Isn't it the case that the restricted Ag certification would have excluded passengers? If so, perhaps it was passenger safety that was the consideration. I know the restricted PA-18-180 glider tugs...

    I intentionally added mass to my CubCrafters FX-3 after taking delivery. Each increase in aircraft mass brought me closer to the capability that I wanted when I placed my order. I chose to add to...

    $0.00 for my FX-3. It's configured the way I want it. If I want to lose some weight I can take the case of drinking water out but, in AZ, it's useful to have spare water.

    I would like to see his confirmation of that. The P lead of the impulse mag is not grounded during starting and nothing abnormal happens in the mageneto with the open P lead during starting. The...

    Well I'll stick my neck out. Lycomings usually have the impulse coupling on the left mag. Right mag P lead is usually grounded by the start switch or by manual selection of the mag toggle switch. ...

    So, if one one mag has an impulse coupling, which one is it? Do Continental and Lycoming have different configurations when only one mag has an impulse coupling?

    No, that's not true for an EX-3 or FX-3. The ignition primary power is not Master switched. It is Battery Direct.

    As I have pointed out before, the 1/2 hour duration of the emergency ignition battery does not define the time the engine will run after electrical system fault detection.
