    Runup on Snow

    I will have to disagree... The oil in the hub never gets warm. I didn't know this till I flew three hours to @Cody Stallings shop to have the prop resealed. Pulled the prop and freezing oil came out. Prior to that, I was always told I needed to cycle the prop to get the oil flowing. I learned all kinds of prop things on that trip. The only check on a twin is the feather check which is performed at 1000RPM, at least in my 310. I do two mag checks. One on the ground at around 1200 and one inflight. If it's rough at low RPM or I don't like what I see on the monitor, then I run it up. The inflight check is a much better ignition stress test. As far as snow, do what's safe. High-power run-ups on slippery taxiways really are not a good combo. Your head is down and the airplane really wants take off. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk

    @Sabremech may have a C for sale soon. All speed mods. Nice little C. Don't know if he's ready to let her go yet though. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk

    Don't fly with@Marauder, everything else you look at will pale by comparison! Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk

    Transitioning to Mooney

    You will find much information here. I just sold an F and loved every minute of flying that airplane! There's a good chance there is someone on the forum close to you to get a ride from. For your mission, a vintage Mooney is hard to beat! Good luck in your search! Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk

    S35

    I know the 440 takes twice the millivolts to break squelch on the com. I have heard some customers complained that they don't have the range on the receiver that they had with a Garmin and that would be why. I'll be interested to hear your experience as you fly more with it. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk

    Nice. How do you like the 440? I'm thinking of doing the same thing in my 310. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk

    Buying an Airplane

    It senses three-axis vibration in multiples of crankshaft speed and displays it as spikes. Looks a bit like an oscilloscope. Cam vibration presents at .5 and mags at 1.5. alternator is about 3-4 depending on gearing. Pretty cool. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk

    Love my insight G4 in my 310! I liked the EDM900, but this has more monitoring features like vibration, egt variation and exhaust valve health monitoring. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk

    ATC Professionalism

    After being in this business for many many years, it is always amazed me how professional this business really is. You have a bunch of type a pilots flying around and a bunch of type a air traffic controllers working them. Rarely do you hear conflicts in the radio... Except sometimes with American Airlines. Every time I get frustrated with ATC, I just remember that I have not hit an airplane in 30 years. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
