  1. Nav/Com Advice

    I would look at trading your current plane for one configured the way you want it. From reading about your plan you could be into a 20k investment. Add 20k to your planes market value and see what that could buy.
  2. Any ovations around socal

    These observations are from information I've read on this site - so since I read it on the internet, take it for just that info from the internet.... The g1000 is certified with the plane. Electronics you add to a non-g1000 planes can be replaced/upgraded at your discretion. I don't believe there is a way to upgrade the g1000 planes until mooney and garmin certify an upgrade. Does anyone know if the g1000 could be removed and replaced with the latest garmin gear or something else? Problem is these g1000's are computers and they are a 15 year or so old design now - when is the last time you used a 15 year old computer. Honesty, that's the problem with all of the electronics - rapid depreciation. As you can see from the comments above, people who have them seem love them. However, there is a recent post from a guy with a nearly new acclaim with the g1000 who misses his g500 garmin gear - but looks like he flys for a living and that may be noise most folks. Also, the g1000 planes are newer and have a lower panel - there seems to be a dx version that has the lower panel as well. Read this for some ideas about what people have done to upgrade their panels.
  3. M10 is on the move

    Not sure why all you guys are grousing - this is the best marketing mooney has ever done. I'm not even sure they are doing it. Maybe I missed it - but has there been any video evidence of the new certified mooney's flying around doing interesting things?

    Engine mounts?
  5. Prepping for Harvey

  6. Prepping for Harvey

    Yeah Dude - its a cat 3 now - been through a cat 1 - if I had an ovation - I'd have waited it out in Montana.
  7. Prepping for Harvey

    If it was mine I'd move it rather than leave there.
  8. This is for the OP.
  9. Well, not good reading.

    Here is the scorecard - https://gama.aero/wp-content/uploads/2017ShipmentReport-Q1-05122017.pdf
  10. Well, not good reading.

    Yup - build the same product at 1/2 the price - wait till the source country market is destroyed and raise your prices.
  11. Well, not good reading.

    There was a thread a while back that mentioned sales in double digits - Anyone know if these orders disappeared or the factory had some delivery issue?
  12. Let's talk about tires...

    Wow, quite the dust up about tires.
  13. Another annual survived

    As an fyi - the nipple on the zerk fitting can snap off if the grease gun doesn't release properly.
  14. Should I grab this abandoned Mooney?

    Look at your W2 and Bank statement. Take 20k each year out of your W2 for expenses, and 80k out of your Bank statement(for the purchase and make ready cap ex) - are you good - can you eat, entertain that yet to find beautiful girlfriend who will soon want a house and kids that need to eat and go to college. Don't forget Jimmy, your friend who has a great idea and wants a friend to partner with him in business - just needs 200k - can you still do that. Dude, there's lots of life in front of you. Plan well. Rent now, build for the future. Buy the plane when you have the important things in life secured. Or - just say screw it and buy the thing remembering that the above yet to happen things will be affected.
  15. I hope the mooney marketing department picks this up - its a great story on the capability of their product.
