  1. Are you SURE that's how it works? If I recall correctly in the movie Fantastic Voyage oxygen levels were visually observed in the bloodstream from the port-holes of their submarine by miniaturized scientists (including Raquel Welch) and the tallies were radioed back to the full-size doctors waiting outside the body. I'd take Raquel's word over some IR transmission ratio mumbo-jumbo any day! Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  2. Please don't be dismayed. In spite of any dissenting opinions I'm sure that 99% of us understand that using a pulse-ox and supplemental oxygen is nearly always a good thing when flying our winged chariots. Those who don't heed the call are either too lazy or too uninspired (pun intended) to follow the advice. I'll admit that sometimes I fall into the lazy category myself, particularly on shorter or lower flights. Then again I always have O2 and an oximeter at-the-ready for flights approaching 10k, lower flights at night, and of course any time the pulse-ox dictates. Thanks for your input on this! And expect [mention=7104]Carusoam[/mention] to come along shortly with a thorough and informative summary of this (IMO) uncomplicated thread.[emoji846]
  3. You can try both: https://www.aircraftspruce.com/catalog/appages/sb-mooney-cwl-kit.php?clickkey=2235085 and https://www.aircraftspruce.com/catalog/hapages/cowlingkits2.php?clickkey=2235085 but I can't comment on what you'll get with each. I bought the individual components (phillips SS) all from SkyBolt myself. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

  6. P.S. I was perusing the latest AOPA magazine and realized their new sweepstakes 172 is covered in decals, even on the rudder. You might ping Paul Howe at Moody Aero-graphics for more insight on the legalities. https://blog.aopa.org/aopa/2017/03/02/painted-or-polished/?_ga=2.150355444.353891409.1495427508-1831704713.1486357878 Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  7. I've been discussing this with a few cohorts for a couple months now. My thoughts were to paint my plane with a white basecoat then add graphics as desired. Done well I can't imagine my IA having any issues with it. Keeping ailerons, elevators, and rudder free of decals might be a good idea for legal reasons but I think this could be done easily enough. So when do you want to get started on my plane [mention=15932]ragedracer1977[/mention]?[emoji846] Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  8. Yes, that tool lets you install the studs into the grommets. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  9. That's gotta be fun, basically stealing planes (legally) for a living! Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  10. I do look forward to crossing your and Sandy's path again soon but it doesn't look like we'll be able to make it next weekend. Eli may have to resort to BasicMed if his weight goes up any more.[emoji846] Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  11. I'm sorry to say that in spite of his fondness for Mooneys Eli was actually looking for something even bigger than a long-body. Trying to keep it affordable he tried on the Piper M350 but even that didn't suit him. Eventually he settled on the Pilatus PC12 which he found quite accommodating and roomy. Sadly his dad cannot afford the fuel, not to mention the airframe. P.S. I found it interesting that in spite of Mooney earning certification of the new plane, this one (serial no. 0001) is still registered as an "experimental". Understandable though.

  12. Sorry I missed you guys today; but because of the marginal weather it seemed like the right thing to do. Instead Eli and I stayed closer to home making the 48nm flight to Houston Executive to check out the shiny new aeroplanes. Eli really liked the new Acclaim Ultra but even though today is his 5th birthday they wouldn't let him climb inside to get a feel for it.[emoji53] Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  13. I hope you're up to date on paying your plane note.[emoji15] Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
