  1. It’s only worth what someone will pay (my fathers words not mine). I just left a bank auction and saw a $2k dump trailer sell for $7k plus 10% premium. They are $6k new... Maybe Los Zetas will buy it and use it for “business”. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Value in the panel? I recently looked at an almost completed Comanche 400 project with twin Garmin TXi’s, twin 750’s, etc etc etc. Probably $150+ into the panel. Nice bird. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Aircraft Spruce Free Shipping with promo code AOPAFREE ending 05-Dec-2019. Not sure if they verify if you are a AOPA member.
  4. Maybe they’ll be the next Amazon of the skies if you can wait long enough. $5k invested with AMZN in ‘97 would be worth around $5.9M today. The good news is that your $5k USD could be converted into Official AMU Bucks. 5 AMU bucks. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Head slaps. If I did that in front of my mom she would slap my head so bad. I would run too; it’s a Pavlovian response to a culturally driven head slap. My best guess is that it is instinctive to run. I saw a planned gear-up landing (mechanical failure) of a flight school twin that came down quite gracefully and the crew ran out of it like it was loaded with dynamite. I had an unplanned landing and did the opposite though - I did NOT have enough time to fumble with switches and valves and had to fly it into the ground. Post-upset response was then to shut her down and then momentarily reflect that I was alive, then exit, then immediately have to take a crap. So maybe that is what he was doing behind the dumpster.

  6. I’m curious if the flight school will instill a fresh “Go Around” mantra. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. It’s okay; I was issued a politico-ethnosocial license to point that out when I was born. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Interesting instinct though - let’s not shutoff fuel and power first; instead GRAB THE CAMERA! For all I know he shit everything else off afterwards but I seriously doubt it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Here the reddit link for anyone that can’t download the 18Mb file: Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Well he is clearly Korean. I’d bet a lot of money he is a M visa non-immigrant student. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. ChoperPilot welcome to the Mooneyspace Forum and thanks for your input. Two years have past and Garmin still has not indicated that they will ever allow the G5 to give attitude data to the legacy autopilots. I believe there will be an all-in-one solution in the future as there is a serious demand. In addition to Aerovonics, there is some Italian company moving forward out of the blue with an AI solution. Maybe they'll take the lead.
  12. That guy was hauling a$$ and was trying to force the plane to land. Such an easy aircraft to fly too. I can't wait until he is right-seat in an Asiana 777 in two years... Oh I'll give him credit for not destroying the video footage too!
  13. If we cannot solve all global issues simultaneously then which ones do we solve first? That question makes activists heads explode. Is stopping a giant earth-bound meteor from causing global chaos more important than preventing the ocean level from rising six inches about one-hundred years from now? Saving 100M human lives from dying by preventable disease and malnutrition more or less important than trash in the ocean? What does the most good for the most people and has the most effect? Living in a generally cold climate with $0.20+ per kW/hr electricity, I embrace energy-saving innovations like Tom's solar absorbers and solar panels. Making people travel inefficiently doesn't seem to contribute anything to the underlying problems. If anything, it will make me drive my SUV great distances. Meanwhile China burns tires and plastic to power their factories. I quit recycling years ago after an "environmentalist" co-worker of mine recommended it as the cost of recycling is ridiculous and it has created more harm to the environment than good. The energy and resources that recycling consumes is shocking and then much of it ends up in a landfill anyways. I'm confident that one day recycling will be perfected and monetized appropriately so that it will be mutually effective for the consumer, capitalists, and of course the environment. I digress...
  14. Qatari gov plane or DJT's rebranded 75? I can't even fathom the operating cost of that. I've met billionaires that don't even own such a large aircraft for their own pleasure (does a Falcon 7X count?).
