Hangar Flying / Desser Tires
« on: April 30, 2012, 01:16:53 PM »
Anyone, besides Beagle, running the Desser version of the Lamb sized tires?  Do they get a lot more wear?  Do they fit inside tight wheel pants? 
They are much closer in price to the Cheng Shins now that the price jumped at ACS and Wicks.  Would feel better running an aircraft tire vs. whatever the Lambs were/are.....!

Anybody have one they upgraded from?  Are they easy enough to fit in the upper center of and EZ panel?  Will be fitting it to the hole currently housing my Artificial Horizon.

Hangar Flying / Blast Tubes
« on: January 18, 2012, 07:46:39 PM »
I guess I've been hanging out too much with Ramp Vermin (!) but I wonder; does the canard design with updraft cooling reduce or eliminate the need for blast tubes on the mags, vac pump, etc....?  Am at a point where I could add this but don't understand enough about the air flow and heat sink action on the parts in the accessory case due to oil heat.

Vari eze wing spar issues
contact info would be appreciated;

I've read recently about the issues regarding corrosion issues with some of the vari eze airplane wing spars. I have contacts with a company that has a scanner (using gamma backscatter) which has the potential to see through a plastic / composite material and measure corrosion in aluminum. It might be applicable to these aircraft, i'd like to organize a test, if anyone can help, let me know!

Hangar Flying / Crummy Review
« on: May 27, 2011, 08:07:24 AM »
A high time cockpit hopper wrote up a stealthy hatchet job on the Varieze in this month's Kitplane magazine.  Seems every paragraph has at least one or more negative words or connotations.  While thinking up the outline of a letter to the Editor, Marc Cook, I thought perhaps our very best writer and, coincidentally Vari expert, might be a lot better suited to the task.

So, Bill James, interested in the challenge??

For Sale/Wanted / FS-Terra TRT 250D

Just back from the shop with fresh yellow tag and tuneup. Paid $775 plus half of repair costs. Includes tray which is about 1" longer than the non-digital transponder so I've found another analog unit that fits my shorter tray. Make offer.

Hangar Flying / Copperstate
« on: October 04, 2010, 11:58:55 AM »
Has anyone ever 'camped' in the dirt at Copperstate?  Doesn't look too inviting but the camaraderie may make up for it like it did at sloshkosh this year.

Hangar Flying / Speed Brake Acutator
« on: September 27, 2010, 12:50:28 PM »
Does anyone know the brand of an electric actuator used for Long EZ air brake that is 13" long and 1.75" square?  Mine is not always closing and there is no label on it.  Need to find manufacturer if possible. 
Thank you.

For Sale/Wanted / FS: 2000C
« on: April 24, 2010, 08:13:12 AM »
Lowrance 2000c with WAAS but no Terrain.  Unit purchased 4 years ago and found it too big for my cockpit. Only used 3-4 times before I got the 396. In perfect condition and original box. Only "damage" is the bottom of the antenna has some glue on it as I thought to set up the unit in the back seat and now am looking to do that with a 600C instead.
$450 or trade for a clean 600C and $150, or best offer. Free delivery in northern California.
