    Frozen Rotax 912 Oil Cooler
    Just wanted to make rotax 912 owners aware of the fact that condensation in the oil cooler can freeze and block oil flow.  I started my 912 on Sunday.  Had 6 psi oil pressure.  Tried several times to trace it down but could not find it until I unhooked the outlet hose on oil tank and unhooked the oil line at pump.  Zero flow of oil or air through the line.  Heated up oil cooler and pressurized it to 25 psi with compressor and the blockage popped loose.  I knew it was water because of milky deposit that came out.  So be aware if your engine is running below 180 degree oil temp then the engine is probably not burning off condensation which can sit in a low spot and freeze later.

    My foot got caught between the rudder pedal and the frame.  Quick thinking and I did not need amputation.

    Those fires in California are epic.  Makes a person wonder if someone is out there intentionally starting the fires.  I was in Oroville a couple weeks ago.  Smoke everywhere.

    That's a moose. My friend surprised a bear and it was swatting at the air as the plane flew over.  Im going to try the same next summer and get it on video.

    Flap control
    I have the original flap control. The stick is so small it's hard to find it sometimes when I need to pull or dump flaps. Is there and upgraded flap control arm?  Do you have pictures?  Does kitfox have a better control arm they sale that will work on Avid?

    If you go with the 582 get rid of oil pump and mix the gas.  I had a pump that was bad.

    I would not focus so much on the donations.  The technical information helped me more than anything.  If the people in Alaska want to help him fix his plane more power to them.  I would be hesitate however to ask for donations if I crashed my plane.  :-)
