  1. M20J Speed Improvement?

    This is awesome, what a feat in a C. When you say all the speed mods, what exactly are you talking about? No doubt best bang for the buck in general aviation.
  2. M20J Speed Improvement?

    This is a well thought out, robust list. Please let us know what the results are when you get yours back in the air. I flew a great working C for several months recently and with the four headings referencing the gps and cross checking with FlightAware, I determined my TAS at 9000’, 2400 rpms and 21” was about 138 KTAS. A good 10-15 knots slower than the 145-150 crowd. When you mention rerigging, what exactly does that mean and entail? Had I known I could’ve turned that C into a 150-155 KTAS airplane I would’ve bought it for myself and done the same thing as you’re doing.
  3. Thoughts on this M20C?

  4. Bring new life in old hardware

    Nice so what “basic” tools did you use? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. I’ve heard that with the Bonanza folks also. What’s so good about Millennium cylinders? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. What does a round of new cylinders cost these days? Assuming this is all that needs replacing? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  8. Realistic TAS for Mooney Ovation

    180 KTAS, 2000 Ovation DX 2 blade, 11k, WOT, 2450 RPM, 63% hp, 13.5 gph, Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Not sure what you’re looking for exactly but I am vouch for this C. I kept it flying for the last 6months specifically for these purposes mentioned. I couldn’t purchase for personal reasons but its autopilot is great for IFR. The Gps is non waas but shoots lnav approaches. It’s been in dry west Texas for the last 7-8 years. It’s a good plane. Look it up on FlightAware. https://www.trade-a-plane.com/mobile/search?category_level1=Single+Engine+Piston&make=MOONEY&model=M20C&listing_id=2307005&s-type=aircraft Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Come to Texas and fly high. 9000-12000’, you’ll find the tail winds. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Interestingly all of us will talk about the direction of flight where we had the great tailwind and leave out the part where we flew the opposite direction and encountered record groundspeeds of 100-110 knots!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. That’s great! I clocked 165 knots sustained in a ‘67 C about a month ago at 9000’ across western Texas for about an hour, 27 knot tail wind. The great thing about our Mooney’s is that if there’s any tail wind out there, these planes will grab every bit of it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. I’ve flown with a the UflyMike adapter to my bose QC15 headset the last two years and they’ve been great. Recently they’ve started to work very poorly - the ANR feature goes on and off during throttle changes. It’s weird. UFM reps tell me it’s bose’ issue, it works just fine without the mike adapter so I’m not sure what to do. Is there a lesser expensive, quality option to the Bose a20 that anyone actually likes? I can’t justify forming over $1100 for a headset. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. M20F w/201 mods

    Wow ultimate post hijack. Back to Mooney F and J discussion please? Geez. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Those fuel flows are just fine for 9000-11500’ range. The higher you go the better (lesser) fuel flow you’ll achieve in a normally aspirated engine. When I took the C on cross countries at 11000’ I often saw 7.0-8.5 gph fuel flow. You’re numbers look good to me. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
