  1. Rather than spending the ridiculous $79 for the GoPro aviation filter made by NFlightCam, I decided to make my own. I ordered a .6 neutral density filter sheet from Amazon for $7 and simply cut a round piece that fits inside the waterproof case in front of the lens. If you want to completely eliminate the prop (blur the prop) and see what the naked eye sees, simply cut two pieces and place in front of lens, or order a 1.5 ND filter. I also added a the filter inside my iPhone case in front of the lens. Works great there too! http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000B73OL4/ref=oh_details_o00_

  5. I honestly think we're all over thinking this. Imagine you're a small business owner trying to build a business without running out of money ( which Mooney has now done twice). If you could build a rudder that needed the same tooling and manufacturing processes as the elevator with only modest diminution in performance and could produce a distinctive profile to boot, what would you do? That is what, I believe, Mr. Mooney did. Modest diminution in performance is probably something I'll be challenged on, but the trade off in what he did, it seems to me, is accepting an elevator that has a sy

  8. I consider a positive rate of climb (PRoC) to be the absolute determining factor and a MUST before flap retraction. PRoC should be in your poll Mike. You don't you even mention it?! I retract flaps once I have a PRoC and clear of any obstacles. PRoc, gear up, flaps up.
