  3. Do you have a good guess on the size of drill bit to drill out the old camloc nut plate? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. I’m guessing it would be the two lug floating anchor but? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. I just replaced all my cowl camlocs with the Skybolt kit today. It turned out great. One of the four camlocs around the prop and engine has previously been replaced with a screw. I would like to replace the other three camlocs with the same screw type hardware circled in red, but I have no idea what this part is called or where to look on Aircraft Spruce. Thanks for any help.

  6. Good idea,,,,, but really hard to do with 27 championships!!!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. It’s funny to look at pictures of me just a few years ago without it and how young I look. We have a bet how old my daughter will be when she sees me without it for the first time. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Hello, It doesn’t look like I’ll make it to the next west coast Mooney formation training in May. But I’m scheduled to be at the C2A formation training in Spokane. It’s put on by Mike Radomsky, and covers the requirements for their Oshkosh formation flight. If I choose to fly to Oshkosh with the Mooney caravan will this training allow me to fly with you guys, or will I still need training with one of the Mooney groups?

  9. I installed a Lemo plug for my A20’s, the controller change made it sound different as well. I’ll do a few flights with just the Tango, and report back if I notice a tone difference in the stall or gear horn. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. I like that, I’m on my theard then...[emoji23][emoji23][emoji23] I started growing it a few months before I found my Mooney. Told the better half I wasn’t going to shave till I bought a plane, luckily she likes it as long as I manscape it so it’s stuck around. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. I bet on a used Tango Lightspeed headset and really couldn’t be happier with it. I’ve always been a Bose pilot, so I wasn’t buying the Tango for me but for my better half. We have a one year old baby girl and she is getting old enough where we can start going on longer trips with her. So I thought a wireless headset could help Shareena out in the back when she has to feed Emmalyn, or change a diaper. Today I got up with the Tangos. I plugged its controller into the copilot jacks and the A20 in the pilots side. I really liked the Tango! It did have a different sound than the Bose. In no means was it bad or annoying, it was just different. The engine was the most noticeable, I switched back and forth over three hours of flight time. I never noticed a crackling or the bad side tones I’ve read about. Honestly they might have been more comfortable than the Bose. They have bigger ear cups and fit over my ears better. I recommend them to anyone interested in them. I charged up the batteries last week, let them sit all week and they never showed anything but a green light by the end of the day. I would of left them on till they died but they shut off after a few minutes of inactivity. For the price I might buy two more batteries knowing they hold a charge. Making it an easy switch for a full days worth of flying. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Wet, wet, wet, yep finally got my IR wet today climbing out of Troutdale enroute to Sunriver. I could of flown the gorge to The Dalles all VFR. But what’s the joy in seeing where you’re going??? It wasn’t a lot of IMC. Bases at 4,100 tops 6,300 on climb out. So almost got 5 minutes, that’s good for five tents right???

  13. Since I started this thread and they donate 3100, do I automatically win it???? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. I run two iPads mounted on the yokes. The copilot side runs ForeFlight and gets data from a stratus 2s. Pilot yoke runs IFD100 getting data from the IFD440. If I had the 540 I could get charts on the IFD100 and would probably eliminate the second iPad and the ForeFlight subscription. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
