    New member on this community, for 2 weeks only, I was very exited to find a group of "float pilots" somewhere on the web. Unfortunately I realise now that this group may have been active a few years ago, but seems now to be very quiet, if ...

    Marc you can us 3M outdoor adhesive double sided tape to secure a fixed trim tab out of aluminum or lexan to the wheel spat. We add trim tabs to fixed Wing Aircraft the same way all the time. We also have a kit for $600 which is an in flight ...

    It is so annoying to know that you gave the solution to cure these issues laid out completely nicely and simply to chief designer at Aeros and they continue to not implement simple changes and accept the status quo for the last 6 years and continue ...

    Leo, yes it is tight but it works. Larry, I think the problem is in the wing since it turns right also at speed with engine at idle. Though I can not find anything asymmetric in the wing. Will test more in the spring when our snow has melted...

    Mikael, thanks for your explanation and pics. Seems like a lot of work you did… My original scope was just to offset the engine sideways, simply by different washers. To be honest I still do not understand why tilting the engine forward as the ...

    Mikael, Test power settings and Throttle settings separate. To verify it’s not the engine, simply pull he power back and trim to high speed and see if the turn is there or not. A trim tab on the wheel spat WORKS WONDERS!!! For high speed turns.

    @ Mikael, It's tight isn't it? By the time you try to adjust the offset AND keep the engine as far forward as you can, there's not a lot of room left for the main engine mount to reach for the engine's hard mounting points. I studied the issue ...

    Mikael Markow commented on Gregg Ludwig's picture.
    I sorted my problems with Aeros2/ProfiTL by angling the engine 7 degrees forward and 1.8 degree clockwise (seen from above). Before it was totally scaring to give full throttle at take-off. With these changes I notice no problem at all. 1) On ...

    ...as a winter project, I finally will work on setting the prop centerline sideways on my Aeros/BMW combo. As lateral movement (by using washers) is a much more easier way to manage, I will try it that way... Any experiences e.g. how much offset is ...

    Andy Hughes
    Andy Hughes I have a Pegasus Quantum 912 and my oil temp won't go above 165 deg F even on climb out. I fly in 45 deg weather and below fall and winter. I have taped off the oil cooler but I think I need an external thermostat. Anyone use one or have a make and and part number?

      wexford air drop p&m an email Andy, they got them for the newer models and would be an easy enough retrofit. They changed something recently as far as I know to increase the operating temperature of the thermostat as well. best to give them a shout before you look around

      Neil Scoble P&M use Thermostasis. Try there website. http://oilthermostats.com/aircraft/ P&M put out a SB to replace the element but when I spoke to the guys at Thermostsis they advised against changing it.

      Andy Hughes I am going to try blocking off some of the coolant rad. No point in a thermostat because the oil cooler fins are already covered so it doesn't do anything to remove heat.
