  1. Yeah luckily the ones I found are the exact same brand and part number they are just old new stock. Wish I had bought more than just one extra. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Yeah I got lucky mine quite at the time he was selling some. Much better price than everywhere else at $100 a piece. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Tracked down on eBay. Paid $35 for three. Should have bought all 9 they had. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. My flaps quit working a few weeks ago. Luckily they were in the up position. Tracked it down to the micro switches “I hope”. It turned into them not working at all to intermittent when we would tap on the up micro switch. Got a good price on them so we decided to change out both. Glad I did because when I took the down micro switch out it fell apart. Everything seems to be working consistently now. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Sorry I’m not smart enough to know what the issue is with the two speeds. But it’s a good complaint to have non the less... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. My 2020 flying exploits started out sloooooow. I never flew for the first 19 days. I’m sure I took it out on everyone around me..... But since then I have put 23.3 hours on the plane. Still less than a lot and I wish it was more but all but one of the flights were cross country’s. Exactly what the Mooney was made for. This morning I woke up to my alarm at 4:30 to prep the plane for my first Angel Flight West transport. I was flying the first leg and I had to be in Spokane Washington around 7:30am. I wanted to be wheels up by 6. The benefit I was bringing them back to my home airport for the start of the second leg. That meant I would be obligation free after 10:30, I had the full day off work. So a buddy and I flew up to Hood River for a late lunch at Twin Peaks. It’s a restaurant right next to the field. If you ever have the excuse to stop I recommend it. The Angel flight patient didn’t want any pictures taken. I couldn’t be more understanding of their privacy. But I did get some pictures of the sun rising. One of the best ways to start the day!

  7. I do my best every flight to prepare myself to lower my gear. If I have a passenger with me I tell them they have one job and that’s to make sure I lower the gear before we land. Not to sound like a jerk but my insurance or anyone else’s insurance rates is pretty much the last thing on my mind when I am flying. There are people out there with tons more experience than I will ever have that have landed gear up, so I know it can happen to me. Two months ago I passed 500hrs total time. I know that makes me ripe for a big mistake that could cost someone their life. If I ever do land gear up someone else’s insurance rates ticking up will never cross my mind till someone brings it up in a Mooney Space thread. I think if you ask anyone that has had an accident in their plane bringing that up probably erks them. There are so many more things out there in aviation more important than your insurance rates. That being said I would love for no one to ever land gear up. But not because it will help my insurance rates. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. That’s a LOT of awesomeness right there!!!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Few Monday’s ago flying home from Las Vegas headwinds we’re terrible!!! Made the usual 5 hour flight home 6.5 plus a fuel stop in Derby. Never saw anything faster than double digit ground speed. The up and down drafts were 1,500ft per/minute consistently. My auto pilot was having fits. I stayed VFR and pretty much let the winds have their way with us. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. I bet if you ask him now he would be okay with that.... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. That is a great looking Mooney pic there.... I think I should get royalties, or discounts on products sold from it..... I installed them two years ago and love them. Highly recommend them to anyone thinking about purchasing them.
  12. Weather pending I’ll be there. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. If your hub is only leaking I would put the order in for an MT. You’ll have plenty of time on your current prop by the time it arrives. Sorry to hear about your new issues. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. The plane could use a wash.... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Monday Shareena, Emmalyn, and I flew back from Roseburg. Sadly we were there seeing family in the hospital. There was an over cast layer of about 1000’. It was the first actual I’ve had in months. Maybe spring is coming. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
