  1. I remember, I think your panel is superb. I would feel right at home flying it! You have all I did plus even more!
  2. @Kris_Adams mine is an Air Gizmos mount so the iPad is removable, the button on the right center ejects it. Regular iPad won’t fit. I had an iPad mini 4 originally, now it’s an iPad mini 5. Regarding mounting an iPad there: it depends how you use your iPad. I am essentially using it for database updates and flight plan transfers via a Garmin flightstream 510. It is also a back up in case of and electrical loss. It is also nice for a copilot to mess around with. If you are using it as some kind of a primary or chart reader, it is not an ideal spot over on the right. But with all the glass I have in my cockpit I do not need it as a primary so it serves its intended function over there perfectly well for me.
  3. I did all this... but on a ‘87 airframe...
  4. You can give my Sales Manager, Steve Schofield a call at 484-718-3136. We do N number changes quite often, and we can also re-strap your transponder if needed as well. Our facility is at KMQS.
  5. @BrianC I use an 8 for cloudy day conditions, a 16 for mixed conditions or morning, late afternoon sunlight, and a 32 for bright mid day sun. An 8 can be used in all those conditions, just not as ideal for bright sun. But if only buying one, get an 8. Cheaper solutions also exist... https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07F193DFQ/ref=oh_aui_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  6. @Steve Skinner Did your avioincs shop ever fix this? A pilot can only adjust fuel flow via calibration +/- 15%. Your shop did not set the K factor when they setup your fuel flow gauge. Have them look at page 5-67 of the G500 TXi Installation Manual. There is a table of K Factors for the various fuel flow sensors. Once they enter the K factor appropriate for your sensor in the fuel flow gauge setup page, it should be pretty close and you then you can fine tune it with the Pilot calibration with actual consumptions. I also noticed you don’t have fuel pressure on your EIS strip. Is that purposeful?
  7. @BrianC I used https://www.polarprofilters.com/collections/gopro_hero6_accessories/products/gopro-karma-filter any Neutral desensity filter will do the trick.
  8. @MrRodgers I said, “Good Trip.” He replied, “More than good, it will never be repeated.” I think he meant it was a once in a lifetime adventure that could never be repeated. Even if we did it again, this trip was the first time he was flown across the country by me. In all my life, Dad was the one doing all the flying. Definately was one of our life highlights for the both of us. I think part of us were a bit sad that it was over. I was happy that we got to share this time. In our busy lives, A 7 day Trip with Dad doing something we both love is precious time invested. Doesn’t happen often.
  9. @midlifeflyer it’s actually a GPS friction dash mount. The raised part is filled with something heavy like sand and the bottom has a rubberized texture so it won’t slide around on takeoff, etc. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001B663TE/ref=oh_aui_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  10. I just added Part 2: Eastbound to the original post
  11. @MB65E ultra leather with factory rails.
  12. Dad is 75 and has been flying 60 of them. He’s flown through the mountains low level like this a couple times in a Carbon Cub. It was my first time through. One of the keys to doing this is to have a few routes planned so you can change dictated by weather. In fact during the video, we abandoned our initial planned route and went further north due to cloud levels. Flying the valleys where roads, etc. exist in case you have a engine failure you can land. I would not have done this trip solo. This was something we have wanted to for a while. We decided to do it before we regretted never doing it...
  13. @ZuluZulu I like them. I’ve flown these and Zulu’s. I am a fan of both.
  14. ForeFlight on the iPad. I have it connected to the Garmin GMA 35c audio panel via Bluetooth.
