  3. Ximango AMT200 Tyres

    Hello, Does anyone know if Chuck from Ximango USA is active? I emailed him about tyres some time ago and did not get any reply. Alternatively, if anyone knows a source for similarly reasonably priced tyres, it would be good to know! BR D

  8. Engine failure

    Thank you, pdrav8r Yes,mechanic also said me that he never have seen a damage like that in 40 Years I always use suggested oil ( don't remember the name ) at 2% misture No unusual temperatures, only sudden propeller block Br
  9. Engine failure

    That is really strange for at least 2 reasons: 1) the belt tensioners are not adjustable, 2) the crankshaft & bearings of the Rotax 503 are very strong. What oil are you using? Are you mixing it 50:1? Have you noticed unusual engine temperatures?
  10. Engine failure

    Hi, I'm an owner of a Pipistrel Taurus, 150 hours of engine Flight ( belt changed at 100 hr ) 3 weeks ago I've had an engine failure. Rotax mechanic's found a seize up bearing and an extreme belt tension. Has anyone get the same problem ? Has anyone measured the belt tension ? Thank you

  23. Taping the wing extension joints

    I don't tape the joints on the long tips when I'm flying from my hangar because I'll have to take it off to put the plane away. The improvement in performance isn't discernible to me, it doesn't seem to reduce the cold air that leaks out of the spoiler handle slot, or reduce the noise in the cockpit, so the incentive isn't there. When I'm using tiedowns at a soaring camp or on a trip, I'll tape the joints; if nothing else, it keeps the rain out of the wing. My Schleicher ASH 26 E sailplane has turbulators on the bottom of the wing, on the vertical stabilizer ahead of the rudder, and both sides of the horizontal stabilizer ahead of the elevator. The Phoenix might benefit from the same thing, but (as Jim points out) it takes some special effort to determine the best location. I keep hoping the factory will do some tests, then tell us where to place them.
