  1. here's my go at it: Is a Mooney to much airplane for me? no. How tricky are they to land? not at all. How hard will it be to transition to? if ALL your prior time was in high wings, get ready to love low wings. otherwise, not hard at all. How reliable are they? depends how well it was maintained, I guess. How safe are they? as safe as you are. How expensive to insure and maintain? I guess you have to shop around and get quotes, but if you have retract time and your IR, shouldn't be TOO painful to insure. mx is whatever it takes. What do I need to know I have not even asked yet? be prepared for a good time. Who would you get involved for a prebuy inspection ? I've only purchased one plane and I got a PPInspection done, however in the future I would have a hard time accepting anything other than a full annual as part of the deal. good luck!
  2. where are u located? then if someone is close to you and owns an F I'm sure they'd be willing to let you check it out. I flew in @DrBill's E one time. he's over 6' and the right seat guy was over 6' and I sat in the back (specifically to see what the room was like). it certainly was acceptable for a short trip, I'd guess I'd probably start getting uncomfortable at about the 2 hour mark but it was fine. the F is a little stretched in the back seat, I had a 6'4" 250# dude in the back seat of my F and he was surprised at how much room he had.

    ILS vs LPV

    Maybe it took him 24 hours and one minute. Seems like a pretty thorough guy.....

    Training standardization

    why would the PTS/ACS maneuvers be any different for a mooney than other models?

    Hhhhmmm, and u get notified of every new thread? Is it possibly in the feeds setting? That feeds thing is annoying.

    hhhmmm, like what? I'm sure you know of the push settings you can adjust within TT...go to the little 'me' icon, then settings, then push notifications and you can fine tune in there.

    I still find TT extremely useful. also, this just started happening with the latest update. I find they are pretty responsive, and as long as they fix this it works just fine for me.

    after the latest tapatalk update my notifications are coming in hours late. testing to see if it's just one forum or all. If someone could please reply to this post or quote my post that would help. thanks!

    GoPro Hero 5 Audio Cable

    What they don’t tell you when purchasing the hero5 is that you HAVE to buy the GoPro mic adapter for $50 if you want to use an external mic. Bastages. My old hero2 didn’t need the adapter but the 5 does (?!?!?).

    $100 Burger

    Since you’re talkin my area, I’ll add Simply Suzanne’s at MTV to the list. The restaurant, which used to get pretty bad reviews, I believe is under new ownership. I’ve been there a coupl’a times recently and the food was pretty good. And they’re open Sundays which is nice. Also add The Flying Pig at EHO to the list. Gotta walk about 1500 feet or so. Tiny little hole in the wall but damn good brisket samiches. Slightly further east of most places on your list is eman1200’s second home, the pik-n-pig at BQ1. Prob not a burger destination but good bbq and just an awesome fly-to-eat destination. Outdoor seating, cash only, “shortish” strip (2500 x 36). My favorite. Don’t get me started on coastal destinations, too many to list.
