  1. Good work Dan. Mine came in the mail from Amazon earlier this week. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Purchased mine from Amazon today. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. What is the door pin mod and wing smoothing? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. It is, but not allowed for certified applications. I have thought about this issue myself and like the added security of the spark plug lead on aviation plugs screwing down onto the plug itself as opposed to the little metal clip on auto plugs. There is a lot more vibration on aviation engines than auto engines and wouldn't want anything to come loose.
  5. OMG! You just discovered a new debate point for LOP v. ROP that has not been beat to death! Break out the gloves fellas.
  6. Assume you are talking about certification for dual mag replacement as it is already approved for single mag engines. Let me know how the field approval goes. That may be a viable option. I'm not fussing about that. I have been a thorn in their side for over a year now. My J has the dual mag and IMHO the electronic ignition would be a huge safety improvement over what is currently there. I cannot guarantee that I will be the first to buy an EI when it is certified for dual mag replacement, but the order will be placed the moment I hear of the approval.
  7. Disappointment in 3, 2, 1... Certified installations cannot use auto spark plugs. Must be certified aircraft spark plugs.
  8. Subscribed Dan. Your story has convinced me of the value of this device. I'm in for one from Sensorcon if they work with you on a group buy. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Has anyone looked at putting a group together to order a batch of these? Looks like a good savings. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. The paint, interior and avionics look nice. I would be concerned about the engine though. It's advertised at ~1300 hours SMOH. Given what you said, I have real reservations that the work done would qualify as a major. At best, it is around a 1600 hour engine since the case was split. At worst, it's a run-out. Just a PP, maybe one of our AP/IA's will weigh in.
  11. Silly question, but you did confirm that your F doesn't have pedal extensions installed right? I only ask because my J had extensions installed when I bought it and I was thinking about another set of holes in the rail. Upon closer inspection, I discovered the extensions on the pilot's side and removed them. I now sit with the seat locked in the 1st, 2nd or 3rd hole from the back (depends primarily on whether I'm slouching on a longer trip). For reference, I am 6'2" with 34" inseam. I have had 6'6" passengers onboard with no problems at all.
  12. Hmmm... Chocks and ropes always seem to manage just fine. Haven't ever had the need to use the parking brake personally. As to the checklist/run up, I have always just held the brakes. Maybe I'm simple minded (you know us southerners). If holding the brakes doesn't work, I would proceed back to the hangar until the brakes and/or pilot is checked out.

  14. So... that's how it works. I'll have to give it a try next time I'm at the airport. Another bozo I guess. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. I did mine last year using shock mounts from McMaster. It was a simple project. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
