    Hi,
    I have a problem with Pitot tube of my RVOSD6. In flight the speed variation is too much and often the speed goes to zero for a while. Ground blowing with the mouth in the tube works properly so I think there is a problem in the tubes that in flight that for less pressure does not work well .
    Someone had a similar problem ?
    Can you tell me what can be the maximum length of the tubes ?

    thanks

    I have exactly the same issue with my airspeed sensor on my RvOSD G6.
    Did you find an solution?

    I found an obstruction in a tube. I did some ground tests and changing one of the tubes it seems to work better. I'll let you know if it works well even in flight.
