    Sorry, I land at KVGT. I think it’s pretty expensive at LAS. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Its been a good run

    If they were able to slow the decent of the plane down with bigger or more efficient parachutes wouldn’t that help the crumple zone of a Mooney’s short stubby landing gear? Have it designed where a third or fourth chute doesn’t fold out till it starts the decent. I could never jump out of a plane so I know JACK about parachutes. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Fuel Cap Rain Cover

    Or if the fuel cap is removed occasionally. By Roberts practice his tanks are never full and I’m guessing he sticks his tanks to verify how much fuel he has on a regular basis. Him taking his caps off and not fueling the plane to the top allows moisture into the tank, and that is by your definition the most critical. correct? My main point to Scott was if someone wants to go the extra mile to keep water out of their tank go for it. There was no point in his comments any further. I think his comment and many many comments over the years don’t add a bit of content to Mooney Space and he likes to hear himself talk and feel superior. If people want to go the extra mile to making their flights safer to them I’m all for it. Whether it’s pulling their tie down rings or pointing their nose into the wind while getting their take off clearance not wanting to get any dose of carbon monoxide, or wanting to keep as much water out of their tanks as possible. I’m not going to promote adding water to someone’s fuel tanks, and more importantly I’m not going bash someone for the things they do to keep them as safe as they can or feel they want to be. Like I said I my first comment I replace my o rings and use the new Blue style and don’t worry about water getting into my tanks because of it. . If I use a can of compressed air to blow out my fuel caps before I check the fuel level why does Scott care or feel the need to laugh at it. The OP asked a question about a certain situation and I commented on it to help them out. This is nothing new to him making comments, I’m just the newest one to say something.

    This thread was about ways to keep any and all water out of our fuel tanks. Not to promote how a little bit of water is okay. If you keep your fuel tanks full of fuel there would be no condensation able to form inside the tanks. If your tanks are not full there is the possibility of condensation. In that case you have a higher ratio of water to fuel. Meaning you don’t have the buffer of water suspension, and the lower the fuel the more condensation is able to form. Then say you dump the water trapped in your fuel cap while it rained, you raise even more water to fuel ratio. Then say you’re fueling the plane up while it’s raining. It can all contribute to added water in your tanks. But if you guys are okay with putting water in your fuel tanks how ever little it is go right ahead. That’s the joys of being PIC and mitigating the risks. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Recommendation for LED landing light

    I went with the Aero Sunspot. They want way to much money for the thing but I wanted the brightest LED I could get. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Maybe you should think about all the comments you have made over the years. I would guess he hasn’t had anyone block him. Robert lists his full name. Yet you, well don’t. I think it’s pathetic that you feel the need to compare my comments and can sit there like my personality is the reason for them. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Well the compressed air can help solve multiple problems in multiple situation. Blowing the water out of the fuel cap is just one of them. Scott I am sure you have plenty of gadgets in your life that are not needed yet help you out. These comments that you make going out of your way to tell people how smart you are and how mind numbing dumb we are is probably why you had to change your accounts. And how you thought no one would ever know. I guess my question for you, is if you can’t contribute to the thread why even waste your time? I know I sure don’t look at you as being someone very intelligent just someone that likes to say hey look at me. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
