  1. i visited the local approach center here in omaha about class C airspace and told them i was concerned about density of air traffic without adbs out equipment flying on the fringes of class C without radio contact. i was told that radio communication was not required as long as you remained clear and it was voluntary to contact approach control. FAA at sun and fun confirmed this as well. personally i will make contact with ATC even if i dont fly in class C airspace and it is not required for me do so if i am within 20 miles of class C airspace for traffic advisories. josh wanted to get technical information and diagrams for installation from uavionix to show czech aircraft factory to expedite process and maybe get a service bulletin issued for installation.
  2. i can fly here in midwest without entering class C airspace easily. i have a zayon traffic alert installed that shows other transponder equipped aircraft with voice alerts on my garmin 510 and have altitude reporting transponder and can my plane be detected by other traffic devices on other aircraft. adbs out is a low priority for me now but to install adbs in and out easily and cheaply is something i may consider. handheld devices can get you weather. easy to talk me out of installing adbs out .....lol
  3. i will wait for josh to get back from his trip and get details about installation and process from him at that time. i will be in oshkosh this july and see him and get latest information also.
  4. welcome aboard !!! i talked to josh at sun and fun and got literature from uavionix dealer at the airshow and gave it to him. josh will be going soon to the czech aircraft factory to talk them and will try to get a L O A for uavianix adbs in and out installation. get both for 2499 dollars. left and right wingtip lights are replaced in ten minutes. easiest adbs solution hopefully get this done soon. you can message him here or at josh.scheid@cruiseraircraft.com and he will be happy to answer any questions about this and his up coming trip.
  5. i purchased by sportcruiser new in august 2011. no other lightsport plane could match its graceful good looks. always wanted to own a plane and figured it would be alot fun. after seven years of ownership , its been twice as much fun that i thought it would be. hope you have a hanger for yr plane justin and am sure you will enjoy it more than you think. there is no such thing as a stupid question here justin, just stupid people afraid to ask a question...lol cheers
  6. thanks for posting this information shawn. i think it would be really great if all members could post best place to live and fly if you own a plane here. start a new topic. no state taxes in florida and texas and weather is different too. seems like those two places would be a good start.
  7. i have a 2011 sport cruiser with extra flared wing tips and have a hard time getting 105 knots indicated with 5300 rpm. being 6'5, i can see ok over the nose straight and level. i noticed my shorter passengers had a tendency to get air sick and one day when he sat on a cushion he brought along and could see over the nose, no more air sickness. you will enjoy yr plane with yr mechanical expertise and helpful advice from this great forum and glad yr here
  8. i wonder if you could tell me the prop settings for a woodkomp classic prop for my sport cruiser to max  out cruise and provide safe wot attakeoff rpm.

    thanks

     

     

  9. great feedback. thanks. only reason now for me to change to experimental is to install a garmin gtx 345 transponder. just wonder if a l .o .a. will be offered in the near future since 2020 is still a few years away.
  10. thanks for the comprehensive answer and common sense of complete accurate records. i do not want to make changes to airframe and powerplant or different type landing gear such as tail dragger from nosewheel. only reason is to install avionics for adbs out. if this is only entry on log book after changing to experimental, then future buyers should feel better i think.
