    Ian (maker of this video) is a member here (ibange).  So hopefully he can chime in on this post.
    He is also making up Yamaha Apex wire harnesses for people and supplies harnesses for Wild West Yamahas.
    And yeah he must really love to tool around with things!  All those mods are cool but that is why I shopped for a KF5... so I can just have most of that already done and putting me closer to flying

    I'll repost Steve Henry's  worksheet here below and should have mine weighed here in a few weeks to see how much I lost from the subaru.  Hoping for 40 or 50lbs.

    Thanks guys.  I'll get some of both.  I love how RainX works when you hit a shower and it also seems to make bug cleanup easier.
    What cloth is best to keep from scratching?

    Best cleaner and "rain beader" for Windshield?
    Wondering what everyone uses to clean their windshields and if there is a a good "RainX" type product that works on plastic.

    I checked on that one in New Zealand and he had sold it (forgot to pull the ad).
    And yeah I'll want to be in the 2.25 or 2.5" length so I should probably just drop $250 for a new one the right length with 75mm on both sides. 
    Mostly I thought I'd post it up here in case someone had one collecting dust and would rather have $100 collecting dust.  
    Jim, hope to be flying this summer and look forward to joining your wing somewhere soon!

    I am away from it right now. But it has a larger Center hole, and then the holes on the Outer Circle are larger to except the bushings.

    Yep this is a luga prop on the yamaha with c-box.
    I think I'll see if he will sell that spacer.  With some bushings I think I'll get it to work.
    Jim thanks for the find.  I missed it on my Google"ing"

    Yeah the only idea I had here was to mill off the center hole "lip" seen on the top in this pic.
    then mount it backwards  with the 75mm side on the c gearbox and the 4" side on the prop.
    Doing it that way would require bushing inserts in the larger holes on the prop and the spacer in the picture.  Those bushings must be a standard part of 912 prop mounting?
    Below is pics of outer side of my prop hub.  The wider hole pattern has larger diam holes on the inside part of the hub, kinda like on that spacer.

    Unfortunately no in this case because of the airbox and oil tank which would really interfere if I moved the cowl back because of the cowl taper to the nose.  Keeping  the cowl forward to the windshield flare that is on it gives just enough room for those to snugly fit.

    Totally agree.  That perticular one goes from the 75mm to the 912 pattern  (4"?) So I have to see how Id manage that but since my propeller has both patterns I think I'll get it to work but I'd need some bushings for those large holes on that spacer Jim found.

    Yep need it to get the prop clear of the cowl.  Cowl has to go that far forward in this case for a couple other reasons.

    Wanted: 2.25" prop flange extension
    Looking for a 2.25 or 2.5" extension for my C box (75mm circle - 6 bolt).
    Anyone have one on a shelf collecting dust?
    If not then any recommendations that wont break the bank?
    Thanks.

  14. Yamma-Fox added a post in a topic Base to final stall   

    Sounds like you are well within the the envelope there.  But one lesson I learned along the way was that I had a bad habit of using a little skidding turn (extra rudder kicked into the turn) to get lined up when I would be overshooting final.
    I learned that was a bad technique because I was essentially dumping lift off that inside wing and setting myself up for a "flip on your back" stall if I would've gotten too slow at any point in the skid. Really what I was doing was what your instuctor did to force a plane into a demonstrated spin...  stall and kick hard inside rudder.
    Inverted Concepts had a great vid demonstrating it but I can't find it right now.
