    ipad mini

    The reason the Ipad mini 3 feels slow is because of the limited RAM (1GB) compared to the latest generation which has 2 - opening up something which hogs a lot of RAM (safari) makes the system feel slow because it is swapping so much into memory or refreshing webpages that it dropped, the CPU is plenty fast enough for EFBs', just need to make sure that you close out as many other apps as you can.

    Klixon Switch/Breaker Covers

    Just like to say I used cobrapilots covers on my 77J and they are nice and tight - pretty robust as well, not as smooth as the originals but of course the originals had 2800 hours of sweaty hands turning them on and off ff

    JPI 830 from M20K 252

    Where are you based out of? - I could be interested in this
  4. In reply to the earlier post I used a Samsung gear 360 camera (2017 edition) it cost about 160 bucks and added a 64gb card on top - quite easy to edit but to be honest you need a beefy kind of computer to produce the videos unless you have the patience of a saint - the software that comes with the camera is pretty good (for included software) - the phone app (ios and android) is pretty slick for managing the camera.
  5. The fun stuff starts at 7:30, and at the end there is the sweetest landing. Just to be clear - I was in a TMA and there was no other traffic within 30 miles of me I wonder if 2 of these videos would suffice instead of a swing test during an annual!

    360 Degree Video Flying East River in NYC

    I just bought this camera (samsung gear 360 -2017) , I can see the shadow on the front cowling - can't wait to get some video, part of my slow process to get my wife excited about going flying, I am sure flying over countryside in central europe will not be as feature rich as this video but if the weather is nice this summer I might take some VFR flights through the alps!!.

    Dynon Certified thread

    Weeks away - I will commence holding my breath!!, I wonder how many people are holding off on this - the differential between this and the current market is huge, its got to be hurting the likes of Trio, Aspen etc who have standalone offerings and cannot hope to offer this sort of all in one package, which I suspect is one of the reasons the price differential is so high. If you have to test your autopilot with every DG and HSI combination out there is has got to add a lot of cost. https://www.avweb.com/news/features/Dynon-Skyview-HDX-Glass-An-Update-230169-1.html

    WTB Wing Tips

    I got this answer below from Aveo a couple of days ago - seemingly the testing is happening in Kerrville - timeline unknown for the moment Re: Crystal Conforma for Mooney (No subject) CN Christian Nielsen <christian@aveoengin****.com> Reply| Thu 11/16, 1:04 PM You ...That is European release, we do not need to inspire much confidence other than the product specs for Europeans sir. When it will be released in USA it will be shown on Aveo Florida website (and the main European Aveo page with that announcement) with the MOD Approval as accepted by the FAA, in the meantime it is in testing at the Mooney factory in Texas.

  10. As I am based in Europe I had to swap my trusty bendix for a Trig radio for 8.33 compatibility - my radio and tray are now for sale - no issues or problems with this radio before it was pulled - PM me for details - I will put it up here first before selling it to a shop back in the States
  11. You know engineering is hard, and good engineering is even harder, thanks for the update and best of luck
  12. Its been a month !!! - where are the numbers - I would expect pitchforks and tar and feathering at this point:) Just joking, but with this much focus on this project and its potential benefits I am sure everybody wants to know

    Dual mag failure

    It was'nt me - thank goodness, as a fresh ppl I would probably not have been as smooth as this guy. I am currently negotiating on a M20J -- so as soon as I have details I will update my avatar
  14. For those of you who swear by your dual mags here is an excellent reminder of what can happen when you are flying behind a 40 year old single point of failure - great flying and recovery by the pilot BTW https://forums.flyer.co.uk/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=104258
