Looking for nose retract system

Billy Rose
 

  Done the unthinkable a while back and landed nose heavy. Looking for a front gear leg and the weldiment that the front nose gear mounts too. I can't find a part number for it. It's a 4130 welded part. If someone has the entire retract system I would be interested in it to.
Thanks, Billy Rose

What about the Velocity in Banning CA? Pilot did not make it. No word as to cause.

That's a different aircraft Ron.  This email was about an EZ in Utah.  I heard about the Mooney this morning.

Thanks Jim!

I didn't notice you were talking about a different crash. I figured you were talking about the one last night that the news outlets are discussing nationally (and probably internationally) because it was so sensational!

Fw: COZY: Manual Retract Drafty

Spent a little time at the hangar today sealing up winter drafts in the nose of my Cozy today, but not sure how to address the hole in F-22 that I had to create for the EZ-Noselift manual backup system.   Has anybody got a successful solution to preventing air from coming through this penetration?  


Hanging out in my co-worker's office last week, we discussed sealing up the manual retract that rotates and moves through F-22.  We saw Marc Zeitlin's idea that he made with glass and searched around for a pre-made solution.

We knew it would work when we saw it... a Jeff Gordon (NASCAR) beer cozy.

I slit it lengthwise, installed it with double sided tape, and test flew it.  It works GREAT!
Its weak enough to not cause any unwanted failures (binding up the retract mechanism needs to be considered with different solutions).

Thanks for all your ideas, they led to this solution.  I don't think these type beer holders are for sale anymore.  The new ones are much thinner and more flimsy.

Re: [Canard Forum] Dynon D6/10/10A display failure/replacement?

aviationeyes
 

Thank you Erik and James for the LCD screen part number and the ebay source. Thanks also to Del, for the comment about voltage to the unit.
So, as it turns out, I had accidentally turned on the un-installed unit and so it was operating on its own internal battery. I think the internal battery was either very cold, or barely charged, and probably not full voltage. I later tested the cold unit on the bench, on internal battery and it still was very dim. Connecting to an external 12Vdc source, brought up (what I think is) a full brightness screen. Interestingly, when the external 12Vdc was removed, the unit stayed at full brightness. At any rate, it seems the LCD is OK for now.

I picked one up off of eBay as a spare – there are many available.  Google it and you can find some other sources as well.

I haven’t needed to replace mine, but I think it’s a Sharp LQ038Q5DR01.  Good thing to have a spare.

Jose,

I had to replace the display on my EFIS D-10; but not because it was dim overall. It had a large oval dark spot in the center of the display.  Dynon wanted $650 plus shipping in 2-3 weeks. I replaced the display for $40 and 5 min on the bench. I it has been working well since for a couple of years.

It was impossible to identify the display as it was installed without a metal shield that had all the identifying numbers on it. Fortunately, one of the guys here on the forum knew what it was.  Dynon would not tell me.

One day I did have another problem with the display on my EMS-D-10. It was dim and flashing when I turned it on but would usually fix itself after it warmed up. That turned out to be a bad fuse connection in my 20 yr. old Bussmann fuseholder. Check the voltage on start-up going to the Dynon!

I forgot which venue had the recent conversation about replacing the LCD display in the Dynon 6/10/10A series of EFISs so trying all 3 venues. I have a new to me Dynon D6 and noticed that the screen was barely bright enough to be read even in the hangar. The brightness/dimming function definitely dimmed the screen, but did not make it bright enough. Is this how your Dynon screen manifested a requirement for replacement or did the display do some other weird stuff instead? What was the best source for the replacement screen?

I've got 5 (yeah, I know, it's an odd #) tires for sale. These are NOS (New Old Stock), never used but have been sitting around for a few years, 11-400x5 main tires used for Berkuts, VE's, LE's, and some COZY III's (maybe a couple other types as well, but those are the most common). Here's what I've got:
  • 2 - Cheng Shin 8 ply (ACS P/N 06-01573) list price $42.85
  • 3 - Aero Classic 8 ply (ACS P/N 06-01240) list price $107.00
All five look brand new - no cracking or aging of the rubber (they've been stored inside). No tubes, just tires.

I'll sell them as a group or individually for 1/2 ACS's price plus shipping, whatever that turns out to be. First come, first served.
