    Richard  where are you located?  I'm interested in the Terra 250, and what are asking for that unit?   Regards Joe

    Parachute deployment panel
    Question for anyone that has the second chantz or BRS aircraft parachute system. I would like to know what type of coverings you have at the area where the chute departs the aircraft?  This one has a hole cut into the turtle deck with some unpainted lite fabric covering the hole that needs replacing.   Regards Joe

    So the test fitting is good,  it should be something like this when finished.  I had this section of 5 in ducting rat holed away, when I started it was at 5ft and I ended up with about 50 inches long and 3.4 lb. I'm going to do some searches to see if I can get something a bit less in weight with the end caps on.  Regards Joe

    Thanks for the replies    I just remembered I have a section of 4 inch ducting tin   I should cut it to the length needed and try some test fitting and go from that.   Regards Joe

    Thanks for the reply.  The cargo bag won't work, I have the parachute mounted just above the battery.   I think Jim C has the side door on one of his planes but I can't find that info.    I thinking 36 inches long is what a will need. Regards Joe

    Storage area
    Hello. Was wondering what people have added for a storage/cargo. What I'm looking to do is add something that will hold the wing support rods, window covers, fishing rod and a few hand tools.   Maybe a section of PVC pipe would work.   Any thoughts or photos.   Regards Joe

    Voltage regulator
    I was running the 582 today after replacing some fuel system parts.   So the charging system seem not to be working.  Battery voltage @12.38.    Did some wire chasing and found the power wire to voltage regulator was to a constant power post at back of key switch and then to a glass fuse.   My question is  does this unit need to be on a + continuous power supply or can it be to a keyed source?   And the new 15 amp fuse got me 13.58 volts at the battery post.     Regards Joe

    Ok. So I just was out looking at my hyd fittings.      Try a search on Jiffy-Tite 2000 series.   They come in 1/8 NPT.     I would think they will hold the pressure you are working with.    But please do your due diligence in regards to max working pressure, the one I'm using will hold 3000 psi.   Joe

    There's that hose supply store on the old Hwy near the Dimond mall in Anchorage.    They should have them.  They will be very much like a air line quick coupler    We use them for auto lube system on heavy equipment       Regards Joe

    I was under the impression you could hit a button and someone on the other end could see that you are still alive.  Also the option for some remote rescue.   I'm curious about this also.   Regards Joe

    Maybe look at Cole Hersee.     We use these often for mounting smaller switches into a larger hole.    If I had a little better sat connection today I would screen shot a photo of one.       Anyhow.  Just Google search Cole Hersee bezel switch.    Regards Joe

    Yes I see prices all over the board.  I just missed out on a early 90s Avid with the 532 engine  looked like a hard landing and the paperwork was all jacked up. But $1900.00 was a screaming deal.   The nice thing about this plane stuff is you can walk in with some cash and take it or leave it.  Regards Joe

    This a new kit powder coat frame.  I m assuming it's complete less the covering   Original price tag 1992 was $20K.   If I remember correctly at the Arlington air show back about that time   20 k got you everything except the flying lessons.  Guess I will have a look see and go from there.   My location is BC Canada  eh.    Regards Joe

    The value of avid mk IV kit
    Hello.  Thoughts on a new 25 year old Avid mk IV kit with 582 engine   I should say un assembled kit.  I have not put my hands on the boxes of parts yet. What I would like to know is what would be the fair market value $$. I do understand if a few bits are missing that could be a few thousand dollars to buy.  Thanks for your time.   Regards Joe
