  1. I had my bladders installed in 2005, paid $10,700 then. Probably could save a lot of money installing your self with a IA friend. I have not had any problems since, sure don’t miss the constant sealing / patching and fuel odors. Over the years I’ve changed over to the light weight starter, alternator, got rid of the heavy gyros, radios and vac system so use full load is a non issue for me.
  2. I left mine in, sure makes a nice ice detector........
  3. I used the fast stack hub for my RV-7 panel, awesome product makes avionics wiring super simple.
  4. Try Gene at Northwest Flyers 06C Schaumburg IL a quick 25-30 minute flight for you. Once a certified Mooney center, still does a ton of mooneys.
  5. I have the IFD 540 with 2 G5’5 they play together nicely and great for legal IFR.
  6. Very nice, love the upgraded wing tips.
  7. Always a negative one somewhere........ As stated, this would make a great ( wait for it ).....................REPLACEMENT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Dont really need to sell it, don’t care if I do, just thought I’d list if someone is in the need for the same.
  8. When I installed electric trim we made another bracket for the yoke (pictured) so the electric trim can be operated with left thumb like the auto pilot switches. Im also able to use a iPad mini on the yoke with no interference. Since these pictures I ran the wires up the yoke. I would think a bracket for your trim switches can be easily made.
  9. Not sure if your yokes are like mine but this is how I’d did my 70C yoke switches for my Stec-30.
  10. Trying here before Barn Stormers. Back in the day I purchased this GX65 new, thinking it may have only 300 hrs on it before I removed it. Radio worked perfect, screen and display worked perfect. Includes GX65, tray and antenna not shown. No connectors. Would be perfect for a replacement. Been in my heated hangers it’s whole life so no extreme temperature variations ( if it matters or not ). Was going to install it in my RV7 but decided to do another IFD540 instead. $SOLD
  11. I hit the donate button on top but nothing happen. Is there another link somewhere to donate again this year ?
