Title: Looking for flap position sender
Post by: Doug Schrage on November 07, 2017, 09:45:35 PM
Does anybody have a flap position sender they could part with, or a source for one? This is for N6471V. At annual, we found the sender to be badly corroded. Thanks in advance.

I can't help with your position sender but if your flap tracks aren't already marked with a 10o, 20o, 30o, and 40o large visual reference marks so you can just glance outside and see the flap position they should be.

Its also a good way to double check if you corectly counted the crank turns with manual flaps

I used one of those paint sticks kind of like a magic marker.  A regular marker won't work just fades away.

I believe I may have an indicator. I have an electric flap, brain box and sender which I wont be using in my aircraft. Send me a photo if you have.

Robert,

Are you converting 1295 to manual flaps?

How is your 1295 project progressing, someone told me you were having issues because of using the H-395 in the rebuild, forget who it was, any truth to that?

Is it time for progress photos yet.

Super, thanks very much! I'll get a photo tomorrow and send it along.

Yes,  the manual flap system has been installed in the airframe. Havent heard any positive feedback on the electric flap motor.

The delay on the re-build is a result of my AME leaving the profession. I found another AME that took over the project, however, this was a costly venture.
Its been on hold for a year with plans of working on it again this winter.

Most of the airframe work is complete - dry fitting doors, cowling, etc. to have ready for spraying. If the Canadian dollar smartens up I need to purchase the EDM 930 and Garmin GNS to finish off the panel upgrade.

I can load some pictures shortly.
