Re: Canopy Replacement

Hi Paul, I agree with Ryan on this. With the newer "Sonplex" material that the factory now uses to create their canopies (with some "plastic" in the mix), the chances of you cracking a new canopy is less now than with the older material. It's up to you if you want to go through w...

Re: Gatlinburg trip

Great trip and pictures Tom! I'm really happy to hear you're enjoying the Waiex and putting some miles under you! Have you had a chance to get a good feel for cruise speeds and fuel burns on your airplane? I fly into Knoxville, TN all the time; it's a beautiful area, just like your pictures show! Do...

Re: How high have you taken your Sonex?

Very impressive Tom! That’s some great performance for an AeroVee! Personally the highest I’ve had mine is 9500’ MSL with the turbo but I don’t have a transponder so I’m limited to below 10,000’. Without the turbo, I’ve only been to around 7500’ or so. I get too bored with climbing at only 100-200 f...

Re: Engine that does not turn round full throttle

Andre, In addition, it may be a good idea to check that you have the correct spark plugs installed in the top of the cylinder heads. If you have incorrect plugs, or if they're not gapped properly, that could possibly lead to your issues. The power the different ignition systems produce results in th...

Re: NOT Securing Gear Leg Fairings

I flew my Waiex for several years with hinge pins sticking out from the middle of the gear leg fairing; one went into a hole in the fiberglass wheel pant and the other through a hole in the bottom of the forward fuselage skin. This helped with keeping the fairing from twisting around the gear leg, b...

Re: Ignition module alternatives

Does anyone by chance have a spare secondary ignition pickup Tom can have and then you'll get his when he gets it? Maybe someone has a spare or has already got their engine kit but is a ways from assembly? Just a thought...

I'm sure Tom would appreciate the help getting his Waiex back in the air!

Re: Rod End Bearings Part #'s

Thanks Bryan! I'll try to look into it some more. The ones I'm looking for are the female rod ends that thread onto the end of the steel torque tubes. I think my Waiex has around 12 of them all said.

I'll keep looking into it. Thanks again!
