    Ah, but will they ever invite you a second time Dave? :-)

    I don't know the specific type, but you either have to swap the brush connections (earth the other one). Or, if it has field windings (unlikely - probably permanent magnets), swap those connections.

    Devil's Advocate Bob!
    Oh, and Tony, yes, still folding the wings to store in my lorry back. 5 minutes to rig, and 5 to de-rig. Have even duplicated it for another Chaser owner at Hougham. Unlike...

    OP doesn't say whether it's actually going intio transmit mode in the first place, If the TX icon isn't coming on, suspect the PTT circuit.

    I did get my 447 Chaser to 99.5kg (really - I have the photos to prove it) back when the original SSDR regs were implemented. No pod or spats, but an Ivo-prop. I thought at the time that, as the...

    You may need to do a bit of both. You should be able to move those rear flying wires forwards a bit.

    Wasn't aware there was a 'standard' for such things Steve. I've seen quite a variation in control frame depths - admittedly with 80's vintage wings.

    Not a UK trike. It was normal back in the day to move the rear flying wires forward on the keel (shortening to suit) when converting a free flying HG wing to trike operation. But I think you'd...

    There you go - that's where the missing 2mV goes! Westach rely on around 2ohm of loop+thermocouple resistance.
    Changing connectors is no issue (always being careful not to add resistance). So long...

    Interestingly, that equates to ~7.5mV. I note that the Westach table linked by Aerial indicates 9.81mV at 400F (=200C). Perhaps they calibrate for a defined resistance drop in the interconnection.
  14. Whilst the EGT and CHT meters are nominally...

    Whilst the EGT and CHT meters are nominally ammeters, I believe they actually operate as (milli) voltmeters to measure what is actually a low impedence source thermo-couple voltage. Just measured a...

    Ah. If it involved changes to the airframe (new instrument required, for example) or a change of weight and balance, the BMAA should be involved. But not otherwise. Different story if it's not a...

    I'm not sure the BMAA needs to sign this off as a mod. It's an engine, and it is a microlight. (As I've just noticed, Joan says as much too.) You need to be firm if the tech office starts to...

    Might be the ultimate limit microswitches on the motor mechanism. Not the trim switch itself.
