I have a question that plays right into this discussion between buying the really nice F or the middle of the road J... is it harder to get parts for the F because it's likely 10-15 years older or do the parts/maintenance costs work out about the same?
maintenance costs should be similar. I have J type switches in my plane and had to buy them from another mooneyspace member. So yeah, it can be equally frustrating for either model. With the factory opening back up, this may change.
