    MY PLANE KEEPS GETTING FASTER!

    What year is your F (I assume the RayJay TN? I am routinely at 140ish KIAS in my F. I just had my G5's installed they also do a pitot static test (fixed a couple minor issues that really did not seem to impact my IAS) and last week's test flights at 70% hp at 3k was around 145 KIAS. I will be flying more this week to get more numbers and hopefully in a weeks to get to better altitudes to really see the results. Also, what setting are you running at those altitudes (%hp, LOP/ ROP, MP etc)

    Fewer Mooneys For Sale

    Over the last couple years I have been watching the total number on controller seems to usually run between 100 and a 110 or all models. Today it is 109
  3. I just thought I would add my install that was completed over the weekend. 2 G5's and JPI EDM 900 a couple weeks ago. The left side only needs a new panel to get rid of all the covered holes ( I will do that when I do the GPS ETC )

    Flying from the right

    Just a quick thought. Can you do your flight in another bird (rent one with electric gear for example) and keep yours as a personal flyer?

    ARI Cowl Mod or Not

    Just was going to clarify for you LoPresti is 16ish not 10ish PLUS LABOR and PAINT! Check out these post here David and Bob, I love the look and the two landing lights seem to make it pop (something about the symmetry of it). Looks like you are killing it!

    LoPresti Cowl Info

    I have to say I do not Like! I LOVE IT! What kind of speed increase did you see and was there a difference in temps. I am seeing they are under 350 but were they lower or higher before? Also, mine is 76F with turbo. Was I told correctly about the no turbo thing?

    LoPresti Cowl Info

    That is what I assumed. 1975 loaded is way different than 2018 loaded for sure.

    LoPresti Cowl Info

    When I called LoPresti it is what one of the guys told me no turbo's not even RayJay TN. I even think it was one of the LoPresti's (but not for sure). From our conversation I concluded that it as not in their STC, as well as room and a heat issue. He was fairly quick with me and somewhat dismissive since I was asking about the turbo. I would love to hear from anyone that has it. Certainly would love to hear more about the speed, cooling and if it can be used with a RayJay turbo (and the guy was just being dismissive)

    LoPresti Cowl Info

    I have heard from one MS'r that they do not help with cooling. Also, they are not available for ANY turbo. They are pretty and they at least look fast! I have a 76 F with TN thought it would be nice until they told me about the no turbo thing. BTW- what is "SE"

  12. I got the update from Trio as well. He said he thinks it will most likely be the fall of this year and then followed up with this email: __________________________ If you are on any chat boards with the Mooney folks let them know that we are working with ex-Mooney people and some folks that still work at Mooney in Kerrville. We will be doing the prototyping at FletchAir in Comfort, Texas. The FletchAir folks are assisiting with the Grumman project. As soon as we complete the Grumman project we will be launching into either the T Tail Lance or the Mooney. The development cycle is pretty long since we are really anal about safety. So I don’t want to make promises I cannot keep. We are looking at project schedules right now and trying to determine what a project takes to complete going forward. P ________________________________ I gave him the production numbers of Mooney's so he can compare that with the T tails and then I told him simply reference controller.com and notice there are a total of 16 Lances on the market with only 9 T tails. Their are currently about 80 Mooney's on the market that an STC could easily cover. Competition is heating up!

    Advice on a Mooney purchase

    Pretty cool tool but it is missing some items for my bird. 2 G5's, Gami, JPI EDM 900, and RayJay TN. It also looks like full retail value or MSRP verse what most of the CB community are looking to pay. That being said anyone have a clue what the above items add to the retail price (I of course know it is not the full cost of each that was installed [if so I have a plane for sale])?

    Trutrack Update

    And it brings the competition to the market place so you are not so dependent on brand S, brand C or brand G.
