    It looks like they changed things. I don't see the individual dimmer listed. Any PWM dimmer will work though. Sent from my XT1585 using Tapatalk
  3. Upgrade from C to K? Should we??

  4. Slowing Her Down...

    Enter downwind at redline. Idle power, high-G (stall warning chattering) downwind/base turn. Gear and flaps on base. Pull hard on the base/final turn. She'll slow down.... Or you may accelerate the stall... There is that. [emoji848] Sent from my XT1585 using Tapatalk
  5. Anybody know a good way to get the cowl flap torque tube out? There appears to be two bushings that need to be pushed out and they're extremely difficult to get to. Just looking to see if anybody has any tricks to get those out. Sent from my XT1585 using Tapatalk
  6. Upgrade from C to K? Should we??

    That's what we just did with our house. Wanted to move to the airport community. Lost $47k on the sold house. Previous owner of current house lost about 150k so I figure it washed out somehow. If the itch for the K is that bad, there will be no satisfying it and you will just have to bite the bullet. [emoji3] Sent from my XT1585 using Tapatalk

    WHERE is the 900 grounded? Mine is on one of the vacuum pump bolts. It must be grounded to the engine. I have almost zero fluctuation on any of my gauges once everything stabilizes. Sent from my XT1585 using Tapatalk
  9. Alarm sound on master on

    You might try pulling the stall warning circuit breaker and see if that makes it quit. I know that mine will sometimes come on in rain. Sent from my XT1585 using Tapatalk

    Is your stall sensor working like it's supposed to? Sent from my XT1585 using Tapatalk
  11. When do you retract flaps after take-off?

    I always step on the brakes prior to retraction. It's just force of habit, but I believe it's in my 1975 POH as well. I will have to double check. In my head, it just makes sense; I really don't want spinning wheels going into the wells. The nosewheel is taken care of with a scrubber but the mains are not. In the big planes, the brakes are applied automatically when the retraction sequence is initiated so I kind of mimic that. I always thought it was so the wheels don't tear things up in the well, but I wonder now if some of the reasoning is gyroscopic effect and longevity of the gear system. I have a GoPro mount on the step. When the cowl is done, I will hook it up and see if we can get an answer to the question of how long they keep spinning. To some extent, it comes down to when you retract. Mine go in the well at positive rate so I know they are still spinning. If you're wait-longer guy, then it may make no difference.
  12. When do you retract flaps after take-off?

    As part of my pre take off check at the end of the runway I simply put the gear handle up. That way, as soon as I break ground, the gear comes up and I look really cool! [emoji3] Sent from my XT1585 using Tapatalk

    Doesn't the Beech have inner gear doors that open in sequence creating drag? The 310 has the same thing, leave the gear down for obstacle clearance for this reason. Our Mooney's don't suffer from this problem. Sent from my XT1585 using Tapatalk

    Positive rate, Gear up Clear of obstacles, flaps up. Sent from my XT1585 using Tapatalk
  15. When do you retract flaps after take-off?

    Clear of obstacles and solid positive rate. Why: The airplane settles with flap retraction. Don't want to be doing that with trees coming up at you. Sent from my XT1585 using Tapatalk
