    Lycoming built lots of GO engines in that power range, all of which used CS props. How adaptable those gearboxes might be?? Who knows?

    I'd vote for Aqua 1500s. EDO 1400s are on the TC, but a bit small on an 18, and probably hard to find these days.

    The Aquas work fine. Stay away from the bigger floats, they weigh too much and...

    Thats what I figured. Minor detail, though: on late model planes the RSTOL doesn’t droop the leading edge. And in fact, the system does nothing to the trailing edge unless you deploy flaps. Who...

    Yes, that first SkyBeacon installed a swishing noise into my radios, at least intermittently. I called uAvionix and asked about that, and they said it was probably a poor ground somewhere in my...

    I'd ask the same thing. Must be for roll control, the RSTOL pulleys, etc create a slightly different install, and they've never gone through the approval??

    How about a two axis autopilot?

    Web,

    Actually, having a GPS input to an ELT does a lot more than that. First, yes, it gives RCC an immediate, very precise, location.

    That also significantly accelerates the "rescue" part...

    There have been “replica” Cessna pods out there for decades. Original Cessna pods can be (are) impossible to identify from these. So, why not create a Cub pod, if you’re set up to do glass?
