My shipment has been delayed… Turns out the pictures that I received and posted were not of my plane. Despite having paper taped to them with my name.. ??..??.. Apparently that plane is going to some other lucky person. I asked the status of my shipment and was told that mine will be ready this week and put into containers next week and sent to the shipper… And with the given global shipping problems currently happening…. If I am very lucky my container full of plane parts will be on the water this year. (that only being 4 more weeks) So that means it will take me about 3 weeks longer to get it than I previously expected. I understand these things happen, so no biggie. I just hope there are no more delays and when the shipment arrives all the parts are actually all here.
Okay, the interesting stuff,,, in the latest release of the TSI POH they subtlety slipped in a new approved propeller manufacture. They are still using airmaster for the controller and the hub but now they approve of a new propeller from Sensenich. Don’t bother looking for it on their website. I am told it is a proprietary version specifically for the TSI.
Second interesting thing,,, as I found on FB, an individual in New Zealand is working with BRS to fit a BRS chute to the TSI. Apparently, it is significantly smaller and about 7 lbs less. The exact price is still up in the air (pun intended) but all the other aspects sound good to me.
Thirdly, here is another idea that I stole from FB. To create a POH. Simply download the pdf and send it to www.print-my-pdf.com and they sent me a printed and binded POH. for cheap… like $15. Literally the whole process took less than 10 minutes. I know that I am jumping the gun a little bit but I was bored.
