    Battery

    Battery

    I just replaced mine with the The "Expert Power" branded EXP 12200 off amazon for 40 bucks. I think its the exact same one without the FGFORTE brand. When I mean its exactly the same I mean in every way. I still think its funny to think you need a loa for a battery. Imagine all the planes out there without batteries in them waiting for battery loa's. Most of the US fleet would be just sitting there. Good luck with that. Don't tell no one but I flushed that green crappy coolant they use and put dexcool 5050 in too last year.
  3. Stats for the 2018 EAA airventure … keeps getting bigger and better.
  4. Nothing worth having comes easy! :-) Finally... after a long wait, we have our featured SportCruiser here at EAA AirVenture 2018! We'd love to introduce you to this beautiful airplane. Please stop by our booth #91-95 in Oshkosh they build a special aircraft espically for EAA but it didn't get to EAA till the last day ??????????????? I like it better then last years … that gold one was FUGLY
  5. I really like your videos. Very well edited. I look forward to see some with the sportcruiser. 9740CA8E-6BC5-42A8-9B81-968761088FD7.mp4
  6. While the log books are impeccable, we still found symptoms of this being a hangar queen ...... Ya think... My 2016 has more hours then this.
  7. I could be mistaken but I think that's David Flemings first sportcruiser.... He started this forum awhile back and was a dealer. Congrats on the new purchase. If this is the plane I'm thinking of then the outside had the blue strips... in that day the most elaborate paint offered at the time. ... yep its the same plane.

    Selling is all about setting you brand apart. Maybe even badmouthing the other brand. As a great example this aircraft has been used to compare the sportcruiser to the bristell for years by John Rathmell. https://www.trade-a-plane.com/search?category_level1=Single+Engine+Piston&make=CZECH+SPORT+AIRCRAFT&model=SPORTCRUISER&listing_id=2288935&s-type=aircraft If you go there stuck between what plane to buy between the 2, he takes you on a test flight in that sportcruiser. Then he takes you for a ride in a New bristell. Guess which one people buy. Now its not really fair to compare a 12 year old sportcruiser to a new Bristell but that's not the point is it?

    I have seen all of Kirks videos. He goes a little to slow for me so it gets boring, but its good content. I would still love to see some videos of some of the advanced features which they never show and quite frankly do a piss poor job explaining in the user guide. Such as how to use the Vnav for doing VFR approaches to a runway fully coupled on autopilot. I had to figure it out by trial and error and it works shockingly well. I'm sure its not dynons intent to assure and teach dummys that flying approaches in imc using non certified gps is a good thing. But I for one disagree as I would like to know how every feature works to its full extent. Who knows, I could be one of those dummys that finds himself in such a pickle and now you better know how to do it.

    Is Dynon still coming. I think they finally got the 472 adsb dual band unit fixed. Ask them when they should start shipping.

    I always read that about the rotax buring 4.5 gal per hour. Maybe its me but I flight plane for 110 kts at 6 gal per hour. usually run the rpm at 5350 and get something like 5.5 5.7 per hour . at 7500 ft or so its trues out at 118 knots. My personal aircraft will not get to 120 knots unless I firewall the throttle which will give me 5650 rpms which it cant sustain for more then 5 mins but I try not to ever hit over 5500.
