cdarza Posted January 27, 2014 Report Share Posted January 27, 2014 Recently had some airspeed issues on the Dynon. I was climbing out at 80 kts whilst the GPS ground speed was indicating 60kts. (this wasnt a windy day) Just by the angle of attack and my RPM takeoff setting I knew i was not doing 80kts climbing at 800ft/min. Same issue on my landing approach. Dynon was indicating around 80 - 85 kts on my typical 60kts approach. Long story short - after checking the tubes/hoses/ connections - i finally remembered the static port. On the belly on CTSW's. Somehow, over the four years and 500hours of flying my CTSW, i had never inspected the opening to the static port. Duh moment. Found partial blockage. So, to those that may have not checked recently - please do. I can only imagine the trouble i would have got myself into had I followed the airspeed indicator 100% . I could have stalled at indicated 60kts !! GPS ground speed and knowledge of winds would be a indication of your actual estimated airspeed.
