  1. Fuel cap O-ring Replacement

    I got the neoprene gaskets and had an A&P install them while I watched. He told me he felt it would fall under owner preventative maintenance. I guess each their own. After seeing it done it's pretty straight forward.
  2. Silicone fuel cap seals

    If someone comes across this thread I have a Very small detail. I just bought these gaskets from this guy and the cotter pins were to big for the hole in my stud. Take that as you want.... but luckily my a&p had ones that would fit.
  3. 10.2 Avidyne upgrade help.

    So I did my 10.2 update when we did the adsb install this last Wednesday. The install and program would have been done Friday if we could have called Avidyne's tech support but they were closed before we ran into the finishing problem. It was a non issue after we talked to them. The 10.2 update was also a non issue. A week before we started I did a dry run with nothing running in the plane but the IFD440 for 90 minutes. I had my battery minder hooked up with the battery charger on standby to be plugged into the three pin connector. The battery minder didn't have any issues holding a full charge on the battery during the test. So I felt confident we wouldn't have an during it. I know it is sound advise to have shore power hooked to the plane and not take a chance to brick the unit. I am not suggesting you ignore Avidyne's instructions or others choices to be as safe as possible but it is possible to run only the ifd440 unit for more than 90 minutes keeping the battery fully charged with just a battery minder. Thanks again for everyone's help. It was a huge weight lifted when I was able to pull out the USB drive... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Finally what I was looking for!!!!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Avidyne IFD Series Training

    The picture I posted of the computer screen is the UAT or Skytrax100 computer program. It's the console software that programmed it. You can tell the axp322 and Skytrax100 what to do and for what airplane or N# and data they are to transmit. There is a setting in the program that you tell the Skytrax100 where to get its gps data from and I had to tell it to get it from the IFD440. I can list more pictures of the program if you're curious? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Avidyne IFD Series Training

    I have but there isn't the option there to turn it on. I called Avidyne this morning and they said when I did the 10.2 update it "cancels" the wifi, Bluetooth, and the forward looking data. They emailed me the program now I just need to download it back to it IFD440. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Avionics Panel Shock Mounts

    My grounding strap broke when the mount broke. I found the mounts but not the strap. Should I just cut them myself? Or is there a part number?

    Found the problem on the Skytrax100 it had to have the gps setting changed in the uat program. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I do have Bluetooth because I've synced my keyboard to it forgot about that. But I don't have the menu that comes up at every start up. Maybe they still activated the Bluetooth but not the wifi. I'll go through that thread. Thank you Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    How do you activate the wifi and Bluetooth on the IFD440? I'm also not getting gps signal to my Skytrax100. Avidyne tech is closed for the weekend thought someone might know my issues.
  12. But then you wouldn't have the opportunity to have an extra $1,300 sitting behind your panel like this.... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. So it is a pressure issue not a procedure issue? No air gun in sight yet but I'll make sure one doesn't get close to the plane tomorrow... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Mooney Caravan 2017 - Who's going?

    Email sent thank you. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Just a few weeks ago I installed a brand new $1,300 landing gear airspeed safety switch. Now I'm having a certification done on my new transponder. I was wondering what it is that a tach does to damage the safety switch during a certification? Are they hitting it with to much air all at once, and just needs to make sure they add the air slowly? Or is it the direction their sending it? We have to check the pitot and static side. Thanks for the help. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
