Waiter Posted July 14, 2009 Author Share Posted July 14, 2009 Looks like I have a pretty good leak in the Pitot system. When I pump it up to about 160 kts, it drops dow to 150 in about 2 seconds. (Standard should be no more than 10 kts in one minute) The leak seems to be in the nose cone. I have a 5/16 stainless Pitot tube that fits over the original aluminum one. I bet money this is where the leak is. I'll look at it some more tonight. ALSO ; Not 100% sure, but my static lines may also have been plugged. Anyway, I redrilled all six of them (standard location under the canard, 3 on each side of the plane).
