  1. Awesome! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. There’s the answer we are looking for! Thanks Mike! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Yah, have done a few 600 NM flights in the mid teens with cannulas and I feel like that’s Probably ultimately where what I’m doing will land but I’d be lying if I didn’t say I wouldn’t want to try a high altitude flight like that at some point...but agree would have to check 02 obsessively.

  4. Yah....absolutely getting utility out of this airplane haha makes me feel like I’m majorly underutilizing my plane. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Anyone know the owner of 82CG? Saw him “fly over” on flight radar 24...wondering what he uses for a mask 25k feet for 4 hours sounds like a feat to me But I haven’t tried it so maybe I’m overthinking the comfort level. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Awesome, thanks for sharing! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Ok thanks, annual is in 3 weeks. Get the plugs checked first and maybe have them take a closer look. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Awesome thank you very much. This site is unbelievably valuable even for small issues. Thank you all, I’ll lean hard and run a mag check and then have mechanic check plugs Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. That was what my initial thought was as I tend to run a little rich. I just wanted to put this out there and make sure I wasn’t missing anything. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. I’d love to, unfortunately I pulled the card on last flight and didn’t reinsert...of course, the only time it’s ever had any importance. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Hello all was flying down to Memphis and cylinder 6 was all over the place for a few minutes on EGT but engine remained smoothed I leaned it aggressively and it stopped fluctuating. Cylinder head temp also remained smooth. Do you think I wasn't leaned aggressively enough? I was at 13,500 or is the probe likely going bad ? Or is this something I need to be worried about. Power settings 30.0 mp/ 2400 RPM 1560 TIT 13,500 altitude. After a few minutes EGT settled in at 1460 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Literally thought of this as I drove away, will let you guys know tomorrow thanks! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. I pulled the breaker on the various different warnings to no avail. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Hello all, out of nowhere my cabin speaker has a extremely loud and high pitched beep when the master is turned on. Have no clue how to get it to shut off or what is going on aside from pulling it and unplugging it for now. GTN750 with internal audio panel. Beeps regardless of the the Nav/comm is on . Any help appreciated Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. I think I’m in a weird camp on this cooking and descent topic. I reduce power slowly and throw the speed brakes but but that’s just because that’s how I enjoy flying the airplane, the inch a minute is more of a relaxing tick to get ready for the business end of the flight more so than a religious belief in shock cooling. I am unlike @gsxpilot as I do sit there and let the prop spin on the ramp for a few minutes....not because of anything anyone taught me flying but Our heavy diesel Cat Pay loaders on the farm will leave the engine run even after removing key if the turbo is hot. I figure if some engineer at Cat thinks it might help I can stare awkwardly at the ramp guy for a minute and a half. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
