  1. I went through each version of nose strut. Sooo, actually started in 2012. http://lsaeronaut.blogspot.com/2012/11/at-us-sport-aircraft.html. Rubber was done in 2015. Yep. ...and then we get back to faith, confidence and trusting the knowledge of the person doing the work. (Start with the cost of the parts from CAI then add the labor rate of your favorite A&P.)
  2. OK, I know this is dangerous territory but I'll start the discussion. When you see that beautiful picture in the trade paper consider this: I have a 2010 PiperSport. She flies about 100 hours (average) each year. I spend about $1K for my annual (100 hour) inspection. Also, I've had this work done: Rubber $5K Nose Strut $6.2K Main strut $2K BRS $1.5K ADSB $4 to 5K Of all of theses, the Rubber Replacement was the most invasive, most troublesome maintenance I had done (by a major Rotax "Specialist" in central Florida).

    I have. Fly the airplane. https://lsaeronaut.blogspot.com/2012/09/canopy-latch-handle.html
  5. ...at my age, I get to choose who I fly with. You are NOT the student from hell, you are "a chosen one". Welcome to the group.
  6. I may have mentioned it here but didn't change it out. I was hoping a LOA would allow me to upgrade. I'm averaging just under 200 hours per unit. I agree with the heat/cooling issue.
  7. As I announced my exit from the runway, I was alerted to low voltage. I ordered a new Ducati voltage rectifier from Certus. It would be my 5th replacement since new.
  8. Welcome, Scott. Flying and instructing in a SportCruiser is just so much more fun than flying a Cessna. What would you consider a "good deal"?
  9. Hi Agis, welcome to the forum. Where are you located?
  10. Thank you for your service. I hope you get to fly soon. I fly out of Tampa Exec. https://lsaeronaut.weebly.com/
