  1. Here's a YouTube video that shows how to pair your iPad with your GNS430/FS210. Cheers, Junkman
  2. Reposting attachment for Tamara -
  3. A home-made X-Naut! Nice. I have an X-Naut on my yoke in landscape for my mini and haven't had a single issue since I started using it. Even in direct sunlight, although I do try to maneuver the visors to block as much sun as possible. https://x-naut.com However, the easiest solution to block the sun I've seen posted is to lay your light colored microfiber screen cleaning cloth over the iPad when you don't need to be looking at it. I believe that was Paul Steen @gsxrpilot who posted that. Haven't seen him around since last October. Cheers, Rick
  4. I waited 7 weeks on a back order from Spruce, but they got them to me. You've probably already seen they're promising a 16 Aug ship date. I know this doesn't help if you have an urgent need but at least you can get ahead of the next one. Cheers, Rick
  5. Changed my Mooneyspace handle from Junkman to Rick Junkin. I don't imagine it will be of consequence.

  6. Folks, here's the link to make hotel reservations for the Mooney Summit at the block rate of $159+tax per night at the Courtyard Tampa Downtown. This is the same link that was included at the bottom of your Mooney Summit Registration confirmation email you received when you registered. This rate will be available until midnight EDT on 8/17/22. Book your group rate for Mooney Summit You can also call 1-888-236-2427 and reference the Mooney Summit to get the block rate. Please let me know if you have any problems with making your reservation and we'll get you squared away. Cheers, Rick
  7. I'm one of the Savvy clients Paul @kortopates is referring to. I posted this in another thread but repeating here for convenience. Here's some JPI 830 data from my flight from Gatlinburg to Alton IL yesterday that shows some real numbers for a Bravo running 30/2200, 13.7gph and 40 degrees LOP TIT at 8,000 feet. This power setting consistently yields an indicated airspeed of 143kts which gives me 180KTAS+/- in the mid to upper teens but the westerly winds at altitude yesterday were horrendous so I settled for 160KTAS at 8K. My #5 CHT is from a ring probe and reads 50 degrees lower than the OEM gauge, so add 50 to the #5 CHT value. For reference I have GAMIs with a spread of 0.3gph at peak, Tempest fine wires (URHB32S) and a dynamically balanced prop/engine. This power setting is very smooth, much quieter and I believe less fatiguing. I'm meticulous with my maintenance and so far it is really paying off for me. I'll add that I do the big mixture pull straight to my LOP fuel flow (13.7gph on my TIO-540-AF1B at 30/2200) and cross check the TIT and CHTs once they settle out and adjust as desired from there. It's one of the recommended techniques to get to LOP quickly and to use it you'll need to determine what that FF number is for your preferred power settings. Also I let the engine "rest" at 30/2200 with full rich mixture and cowl flaps open for about 5 minutes after a long climb before I go LOP. If I don't do this and immediately go LOP I get fuel pressure fluctuations at the lower fuel flow rate, presumably due to percolation in the fuel lines from the heat generated at climb power. On a hot day I will also run the fuel pump for that five minutes to keep the pressure up and assist the cooling process If I want to find out exactly where I'm running with regards to peak TIT and also crosscheck the individual EGTs I enrich the mixture from the LOP side back to peak, and then dial the mixture back to LOP. That keeps me away from the high ICP zone. I do the peak check occasionally just to have another crosscheck that nothing has changed with the way my engine is running and to confirm I'm still where I think I am on the LOP curve both with TIT and individual EGTs. Cheers, Rick
  8. @eman1200 I just saw this - count me and Glennie IN! Long range forecast looks good, hope it holds. Cheers, Rick
  9. Welcome to Bravo ownership! 1. Yes, that is the breather tube. For what it's worth I changed from inserting my Engine Saver at the breather tube to inserting it into the oil fill tube by drilling a hole for the Engine Saver tube in a silicone stopper that fits snugly into the oil fill tube. Much easier to use and you don't have to worry about the foam on the Engine Saver tube coming apart in the breather tube. 2. Probably just the seals but you won't know for sure until you open it up and look. Definitely something you want to get remedied sooner rather than later as it will only get worse. Cheers, Rick

  13. Closing the loop on my original post - The box of six AA48110-2 filters I ordered from Spruce on 5/8/22 shipped on 6/24/22, and at the original price of $159.14 for the 6-pack. I see Spruce now has the individual filters listed at $31.43 but the 6 pack still at $159.14, however no stock for the singles until 7/21/22 and no stock for the 6-packs until 6/30/22. Cheers, Rick
  14. My apologies if this is an obvious question, but have you confirmed the sensor is actually bad? There is a known issue with the connectors between the sensor and the cockpit gauge. You can try cleaning the contacts but the recommended solution is to replace the connection. Cheers, Rick BENZ AIRBORNE-KULITE TRANSDUCER.pdf
