    Want To Buy Turn Coordinator

    My Wultrad Turn Coordinator has a failed Rate Indicator (the skid ball still works). I think getting this repaired is hard to do, so best just to replace it. So if anyone out there has an electronic 3 1/8" Turn Coordinator laying on your workbench after a panel upgrade, I'd sure like to buy it...

    Clearing fouled plugs

    Source of static on comms

    Glad you figured it our. Electrical gremlins are the worst. Very hard to trouble shoot.

    Shameless plug for Arizona ice Tea

    Cool, wish I could get a quart Ice Tea container around my filter in my RV6 but . . . nope. So I use 1 gallon Ziplock bags. And to "save the environment, I don't use a new one, I tell the wife to save me one before she throws it out.

    Band-Aid for hangar rash

    I'd put the protection on the doors of the hanger, not on my wing tips . . . . Hangers don't fly
