  1. Well not only have I turned 50 and then some. Well so has my 1970 m20c and many of its components. This is the top of the instrument panel. Do I have it recovered? buy new? Send it out? Find a local vinyl guy? I’m in Columbus Ohio. Any and all advice accepted. Lawrence
  2. I used the search and couldn’t find the answer ( I didn’t look that hard) so I thought I’d ask the question. I really want to add the jpi 900 to my 1970 C, but I have a few questions. Everybody that posts about there’s says it’s the best thing they’ve added to the plane. 900vs 930? what happens if you lose the display or the whole instrument during flight, assuming you’ve removed the old instruments? And has this happened? I also thought there was someone on MS who offered a discount. what question am I not asking that I should? t
  3. I would really like to upgrade the panel after this summer. And based on what I’ve read an seen I think the G3x is the way to go. But I’d like to not spend 50 amu’s on this project. So if I go with the G3x with the G5 backup, find a used gtn 750 ( they seem to be out there now) can I still use the s tec 50 autopilot. It seems I would save a fortune not upgrading to the GFC 500? help me spend my money, just not all of it. Lawrence
  4. What pattern speeds is everybody using? I have a 1970 C. I use 100 mph on downwind 90 on base 80 on final and 70 across the numbers. I add about 10 degrees of flaps on downwind and dump the rest on final.
  5. I love the discussion on pattern and landing speeds, I just don’t love it in this thread. This thread makes me sad for the loss we all experience with every accident. That being said I’m going to start a new thread in Safety and Accident section. Please comment with you 2 cents, let’s debate and learn. Lawrence
  6. Made me think of this. Good luck with the chicken. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=lf3mgmEdfwg
  7. No words. I read all the updates and looked forward to his progress. Was hoping for a better outcome. May he be pain free and at peace. Lawrence
  8. First I think someone has been listening to us http://www.bbc.com/future/story/20191003-the-three-things-that-could-kill-the-pilotless-airliner secondly can someone please fix my pictures? I promise we were not inverted when that was taken, and I even put it upside down in my album and it’s still upside down. lastly enough about single pilot/ no pilot. I want to hear about the young guys or the kids of the old guys their paths to aviation and their successes or hurdles. Lawrence
  9. Well... perhaps I should have titled the thread “parenting advice”. The update. The now 19 year old who should be a sophomore in college lasted 1 semester and said he had enough. He is working in a high end restaurant, but in my opinion it’s not a career path. He has not continued to fly. I have offered to continue to pay for flight training but haven’t pushed it at all. My personal opinion is that this is something he must want to do. To be “all in” and want to continue to learn, practice, and improve is in my opinion the best way to increase ones safety and proficiency. He does
  10. Anyone going to Oshkosh on Saturday July 20? Short story long. We removed our engine for overhaul in March. We were supposed to be back in the air mid May. Then June 1st. Then July 1st now in time for Oshkosh. We we’re going to go to Oshkosh midweek because I am going to be in Boston for a hockey tournament (with my daughter) on the 19th then fly to Charlevoix Mi on the 20th ( my sons birthday ) and my mother was going to get my daughter home. There’s a chance our plane will be ready this weekend but I’m not optimistic. I’ve made southwest reservations to get to Boston on the 18th.
  11. BNorthwest Michigan is awesome!!! One of the best kept secrets. And that’s from a guy who lives in Ohio. Sleeping bear dunes, Traverse City fishtown Charlevoix petoskey Harbor springs. gorgeous water and beaches. Fun little towns with restaurants and as my wife says “shit shopping” if you go to Harbor springs buy sandwiches from a little place called Guerneys, then go to Tom’s Mom’s cookies grab a table and some chocolate chip cookies. In the upper peninsula you can see the locks, as well as white fish point has a great ship wreck museum that houses the bel
  12. Wow!!! impressive. I can’t tell you how many times I have trouble closing the door on the ground before engine start.. Lawrence
  13. I can’t believe you were in Columbus and didn’t reach out. What’s the point of the map. I would have picked you up at kosu. I might have even bought dinner. Next time don’t hesitate because when I get to Austin or Burning man you better believe I’m calling.
  14. Fixed gear B but... I’ve really been considering a JPI and being a member of the cb club $200 is $200. Lawrence
  15. We are getting ready to pull the engine for an overhaul and want to add a jpi 900. Without redoing too much where should we put it?
