  1. Great idea, thanks for it. I will remember next time.
  2. Noted .... I have a 50 point something megapixel camera and plenty of very fine glass to go with it ... this is the best I could come up :S.
  3. Ahhh, thank you, I believe that solved the mystery. I also left the wing covers on.
  4. of course I am just making an assumption that it has something to do with the pitot cover as it was the first time on when I started up.
  5. It does have a "remove before use" red tail. I've always had my headsets on whenever the stall horn sounds and it isn't for that long. I didn't wear my headsets while taxiing, is the stall horn that loud?
  6. Yes, before Christmas it tripped the breaker on gear up about 4 times in a row. Next time out, a few degrees warmer mind you, the override button lit up a couple times, pressed it and up she went without a complaint and she's behaved ever since.
  7. It was pretty steady, maybe shut off for a few seconds a couple times.
  8. I didn't know if it was somehow connected to a landing gear warning, I only know of two warnings, landing gear and stall (but think it was too loud for a stall warning).
  9. Quick question. The other day I needed to taxi to another parking spot and decided it was too much trouble to get back out and remove the pitot cover to taxi 100 yards. Very shortly after startup a loud siren sounded and stayed on until shutdown. Was it related to the pitot cover and the gears and/or why would it be triggered?
  10. Thanks Brad. The gear is coming up, it just pops the breaker before it knows that it is. My mechanic does know the special tools required, just doesn't have them. Regardless, I had a long chat with extremely helpful and knowledgeable Clarence. Once we get 'er all figured out I will be sure to post what the problem was.
  11. I am quite sure he doesn't have the special tools as he said we may have to figure out if I can find some to borrow around here in south central Ontario. Thanks again!
  12. I'm listening but I don't understand her language just yet! Don't know any of answers to your queries; I have only had her two months and most of that time it's been either grounded due to weather or in annual waiting for parts. All I know is my mechanic, and the mechanic who did the pre-purchase a month beforehand were both very satisfied with the gear swings. We are going to put her back on the jacks and check her out. We will be sure to check into some of the items listed here, thanks all of you for help.
  13. Thanks, although not news I was hoping to hear. It is pretty much straight out of annual and a ton of gear swings in much warmer environments without a fuss. I suppose Ill just take it back to the mechanic and have him try cold and warm.
  14. It was very cold this weekend and while doing circuits whenever I retracted my gear it started to pop the gear circuit breaker. I discussed it with the previous owner who told me he had the gear bypass kit installed as shown here. I understand that it has something to do with the pucks expanding and being hardened in cold temps. Does anyone have the specs, operators manual or at least some instructions about how/when to use this? Thanks in advance! Dave
  15. Thanks Hank ... lol I said go easy - besides, mine just might! I don't have a push to talk on the co-pilot yolk, I purchased a plug-n-play type. I don't think it's an SPA-400 intercom system as it doesn't look like the switch in the middle of the SPA-400 is a three-way (Radio, Intercom, Off). It doesn't look like it is marked with the company name or type but I will double check tommorow. Dave
