  1. The GX-60 is no longer supported by Garmin. You will not be able to get updates which limits it's usefulness.
  2. I'm just gonna ask. Did the original poster retract the gear? It's a huge speed mod.
  3. Just donated. Thanks for all that y'all do to support this trough of information that I feed from. Maybe one day I'll be back in a 201.
  4. @aviatoreb I completely agree about the Xootr. Impossible to beat for a quick in and out. We've used those before as well when we don't need to go far.
  5. Beautiful panel and seriously AWESOME yolks.
  6. Depends on your mission once you land. Keep in mind that decent e-scooter will run about -$300-400. I have two from Go-trax. If you just need to go a mile or two, maybe, but if you're getting around all day, you'll need one that has better range. Range costs in two ways, money and weight. My scooters weigh as much as my folders, but they will only go about 12-14 miles before they need a charge.
  7. Unfortunately, I'm no longer flying that J model so I have no way of knowing.
  8. I'm a little late to the post, but maybe this will help. This is a Dahon Speed in the back of a '78J. Just a few suggestions: 1) This model is 26lbs. It's all that I would want to lift into the baggage area. 2) Dahon makes a pretty darn good bike for the money 3) There is a huge difference in ride quality/stabilitybetween 20" wheels and 16" wheels. I have a folder with 16" and it just sits now. 4) If I remember correctly, this didn't fit with the luggage rack on the back. You can still get it in, just not laying flat like this. 5) Remove the seat post when loading and unloading. Just makes it easier. 6) The Helix looks awesome, but it's only 1.5lbs lighter and over $3k 7) I strongly recommend getting one with gears over single speed My wife and I have been using folding bikes in planes for 12+ years. 172, m20j, pa-28. They are so much fun to use. We just got back from a trip to Venice, FL. We were on our Dahons for three days. Places on East coast that are fun to visit with folders: 1) Ocracoke, NC (W95) 2) First Flight, NC (FFA) 3) Williamsburg, VA (JGG) 4) Tangier Island (TGI) 5) Beaufort, NC (SUT) 6) Beaufort, SC (ARW) 7) Fernandina Beach, FL (FHB) 9) Cedar Key, FL (CDK) 10) Venice, FL (VNC) 11) Key West, FL (EYW) I'm sure there are several more, but these all have towns that you can ride to easily from the airport.

  10. Congrats Papa K! I just bought the Sentry and used it on a round trip to Key West. I've used both, and the Sentry is the better value. Longer battery life, smaller, stays on window easily and has CO2 detector. Also, a great place to mount it is directly behind passenger. That way you can see status lights and easily turn on and off if needed. Hope you have many hours of fun flying in the near future.
  11. Cessna discontinued the 350/400 ttx in 2018. It did almost everything better than the Cirrus. It was missing something.
  12. Ha! I've never chanced it. Always left upright in the seatback.
  13. Really hard to beat an empty tennis ball canister.
  14. It's definitely worth $110K because that's what I'd drive up to Roanoke and give you today. (pending an inspection) Hope that helps.
