REFLECTOR: Pitot / static accuracy
Has anyone placed a "bump" in front of their static source to prevent
icing? I have a bump in front of mine about a popsicle stick's thickness
and 3/8 of an inch before the static source. My altimeter is about 150'
too high and my ASI is about 7 knots fast. Has anyone experienced this?
I've seen the factory put a piece of adhesive tape in front of the static
source on the elite and I've seen another elite do the same with a fixed
bump. I assumed it was for icing.
