    Thanks for that, 4JJ. My Backcountry is within 1/8" of your widebody. I had wondered.

    A brief search of the Skywagon site says #5 shroud reduces #5 CHT by 25*. That's what I remembered being told when told to add it.

    The cooler doesn't block any air. There's a baffle behind the cooler to prevent air from going down in front of #5. The cooling of #5 comes from the pressure cowl doing it's job. Ram air to an...

    What about #6? I've had 3 or 4 versions of a plate over #6, also because Steve K. suggested it.

    Yesterday I was walking the dog and a Robinson came in and landed at the neighbor's. I was quite a bit upwind and it occurred to me that I could smell diesel fumes and that helicopter was the only...

    The three variables. Balance tube, induction, and fuel flow. But that said, I wonder if that baffle increases heat at #5 or reduces it.

    Not uncommon. At least not in my life. Dakota Airframes' PMA fuselages didn't fit Atlee's cabanes.

    Here’s a Mike Patey video of repairing a Catto. Google search “repair a carbon propellor” and you’ll get several videos, mostly from Hartzell. Repairing dings is a nuisance or a pastime depending on...

    It'd be interesting to see how a Whirl Wind compares. You can try my 200A while it's off. Maybe not the best match for a 360, though.

    If you operate on gravel rocks will get tossed over the top and forward from tires. Most composite props use nickel leading edges. Very, very durable. Not a problem there. Where composite props are...

    Like most businesses I'm struggling to find new hires. A buddy sums it up well. The guys you want are already working. The guys not working? You don't want to hire them.

    How much does a main rotor strike inspection cost? It's gotta hurt.

    There's a busy helicopter charter operator up a handful of hangars from me. They fly R-44s. They have two concrete pads in the asphalt ramp in front of their hangar and the proximity to birch trees...

    #5 cylinder baffle is part #1250134-1 or -2 for serial numbers 18502311 thru 18502392 and 18502825 and up respectively. I don't see such a part for the 180 but I didn't look very hard.

    I'm playing with Caltopo but it isn't intuitive on a smart phone. I'll try later from a desktop. I agree that in a scale less than 2 miles GP topos aren't good. When I do ground-based stuff I've been...
  18. Caltopo, Geospatial PDF's, and ForeFlight

    Good info! Topo maps were one of my biggest disappointments in Foreflight and one of the reasons I kept GP.

    For comparison, screen shots from my iPhone.

    Don't care about warranty so not a problem. I'd rather have a GDL-82 than a Tail Beacon so finding a way around the Garmin install requirement is appealing.

    Thread drift. Whew knew, right?

    If I buy a GDL-82 outright it's sold for experimental use but the box is TSO'd. Garmin certified boxes MUST be installed by Garmin dealers. Not interested. Why...

    The GDL-82 uses the existing transponder antenna for out and a WAAS GPS antenna for position. You shouldn't need a big ground plane to receive GPS. Since the shop wants to add the ground plane on the...
