  1. Looking to purchase a Mooney M20J

    My J has the crank...
  2. KISM pireps?

    Cool. VW will be on the ramp with you. However, we leave Disney on the 14th and move to Universal Studios. I hope you enjoy your trip. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. KISM pireps?

    I fly into KISM around 4-5 times per year. I am actually planning on being there March 10-18. We always use Kissimmee Jet Center. The staff there are great with exception to the afore-mentioned Jeannie at the desk. She is there sometimes, and not others. We generally hop Uber to the parks. Uber is not allowed on the ramp, but the Jet Center folks will give you a ride to the gate to meet your car. I always file OCF > CERMO > KISM. Half the time Approach will give me direct KISM after OCF, the other not. I have never had a problem transitioning the Class Bravo. However, when winds are from the North, approach will often keep you to the West until turning over to the tower. It will be nice seeing another Mooney on the ramp. Safe travels. Brandon **Edit. I just called for my reservation and spoke with Jeannie. She was super pleasant and helpful. I hope this is the new rule and not the exception. I understand new ownership took over in January and this could be good things for the FBO.
  4. Raptor

    No TSIO-550 for me. I was just posting that as a reference point for performance numbers as that is what is used on the Velocity. I am eagerly watching the diesel market as I expect it to revolutionize GA from the standpoint of reliability and efficiency.

    I hope you are wrong too. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Raptor

    After watching the project for nearly two years, I have put a deposit down on a Raptor. Skeptical optimism is still in play. However, the Raptor team has exceeded their projected benchmarks on the engine testing and proven they are serious. Given the Velocity’s 250kt 75% cruise with the TSIO-550, there is no reason the Raptor shouldn’t be able to cruise at, or near, 300kts at FL250. I am #1231 in line. Any other MSers on board yet?

  7. Head rests for 231

    Early 2000’s Camry head rests work great. I got a set of 4 from the junk yard for $10/each. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Leaky fuel tank woes ... looking for perspectives

    What did Maxwell charge for the reseal? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Leaky fuel tank woes ... looking for perspectives

    Got a question. When replacing the access panels, how do you hold it in place while starting the screws? Suction cup? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Favorable experience with Bose repair

    I had the same thing happen with my old Bose X last year. I called customer service and they suggested I mail it in for the $240 repair. Spoke with a service manager and he mailed me the replacement stirrup for both sides Free of charge and I installed them. That is service. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Cabin Width

    Nice interior. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Trim Jackscrew Binding

    My jack screw was very tight and the electric trim would regularly bind up. I disassembled everything around a year ago as outlined above, soaked the parts in jet a and cleaned everything well. Then all was reassembled with fresh grease. It is smooth as butter now. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. S-TEC Looking for 15 Mooney owners

    If the price were on par with the competition, I would be all over it. However, the upgrade price is double that of the competition and I read that you want my current unit as a trade in (not that it has any value based upon an insane STC system). I will stick with what I have for now and will look to Trutrak and Garmin when it is upgrade time as I would hate to see your prices when the special is over. Stec is going to price itself out of the market. #notmymooney Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Does this look like a good deal? (Used M20C)

    I guess GPU port would be the more appropriate terminology.
  15. Clouds

    Jose, this is the one I was thinking of. Used it a few times before getting my instrument rating to make sure I would maintain cloud clearances. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
