Re: New Nose Wheel Fin

Arnaud, Check the trim tab on your rudder. If the trim tab has a bend in it then the fin will help you because your plane may show the ball centered but that is because the rudder is taking the yaw out because of the trim tab. I suggest removing the trim tab and make a flight in cruise flight. If yo...

Re: Low Fuel Pressure Warning (G1000)

This is vapor lock usually on a DA40. Mine did this many times 5000 ft and higher. When this happens turn on the electric pump for a few seconds.
I now have a Lancair ESP with TSIO-550E. This engine tends to vapor lock at 10K and higher. I run the back up pump on low and never have a problem.

Also we made another production run of our nose wheel tow bar protectors if anyone needs a set.

Re: New Nose Wheel Fin

It has been brought to my attention that on fin that fits the 2004 and newer wheel pants that the rear mounting hole is forward roughly by .180 of a inch. If anyone wants to re-drill the hole for testing we will send you a new fin at no charge if you like.
Thanks

Re: New Nose Wheel Fin

Steve, read carefully! I said initial flight. If your plane flys true without the trim tab then you can bend the tab flat. If it needs adjustment then you can install the tab the left or right as needed and bend to adjust.

Re: New Nose Wheel Fin

I forgot to mention, the fin is a composite and is white thru out. Because DA changed the white three or four times from mercedes white to bmw etc. you can paint to get an exact paint match.

Re: New Nose Wheel Fin

I have had a large interest in the new fin and orders keep coming in so I thought I would post my recommendations on setting your aircraft and testing. 1.) remove the two top rear screws from the front pant. 2.) Install the fin using the new screws supplied. 3.)I would remove the rudder trim tab for...
