  1. I'm sure my math is off but after three tries I am not getting any closer. it is very frustrating.
  2. Morning, I have a minute for an update and to maybe get this figured out. I remounted the panel so I have a more vertical stance in level flight. I actually like it better for visibility. I did the math and recalibrated the G5s and taxing and ground maneuvers everything seemed good. So after a very long prayer and triple checking everything I taxied to the active and went for it. The plane actually took to the sky and everything worked, sort of! I have a crossed wire on my gear indicator lights and the locked light stay on even when unlocked. I know where that issue is. BUT the G5s are showing a nose down attitude in level flight. I keep getting a pitch up indicator. My question is if I level the plane and skip the not level calibration the manual goes by and physically level the plane perfectly will the G5s after calibration show level flight? I am going bat crazy over this and it is driving me nuts. THE GREAT NEWS IS THE GYPSY IS AIRBORNE ONCE AGAIN!!
  3. I guess I could. The yokes are the same distance from the floor. I could still do that Sent from my E6810 using Tapatalk
  4. I'm using the seam and for side to side I'm using the yokes. Sent from my E6810 using Tapatalk
  5. I got swamped with vehicles. I'm going to try again Saturday. I'm still working Sent from my E6810 using Tapatalk
  6. Lol. I did. I had to test it. But it's clean now!! Sent from my E6810 using Tapatalk
  7. This hit a cord with me but here is the finished working repair. To those who thought it was silly, a waste of time, or dam near impossible here is the finished job. 7 minutes of total time. It took a month to find the parts and get the parts but the repair was easy. I understand that most people on this forum or any other forum for that matter really don't know the capabilities of the others on the site. But I am really tired of hearing negativity towards everything. If you feel so compelled to shoot down an idea just to add content do me a favor record yourself and play it back repeatedly. See if it gives you pleasure. Aviation is a rewarding field. So are many others, but non of the fields including rocket science is out of the grasp of anyone with the willingness to learn, read and TRY. I believe if it has been built by man it can be fixed my man. It might not be cost effective and that is a good argument to have, especially if other better options are available but in some cases that is not the case and that is when people like myself find it a challenge to resurrect the broken. AS FOR THOSE THAT HELPED ME THANK YOU A MILLION TIMES!!! This website is absolutely the best!
  8. Yup I get it. But Garmin is confused. lol. I must have mis-stepped. I'm going back out Wednesday and trying it again. Sent from my E6810 using Tapatalk
  9. Ok I thought so too. but when I plug in the numbers and let the G5 do its thing I get error. I put spacers behind the panel I can get it to work. That lead me to believe that it was out of range.
  10. Ok so I was going to add 3/4in aluminum spacers to the back. Sweet it is not rocket science.
  11. in the install manual it tells you not to level the plane but to use the factory level line to calculate a digital angle and plug the numbers into a formula. My install was not easy but I was correcting a multitude of former sins. The typical install I would guess would be 20-30 hours with adding a GMU 11 and a GAD 29
  12. Morning folks, I have been trying to calibrate my G5 for installation in the plane and have been getting an error. I think it is because the panel on my M20F is 12 degrees tilted forward and the plane sits 3.2 degrees nose high on its gear. When I level the plane I exceed the 15 degree max. My question is what have you guys done to make the panel sit more vertical and get the radio stack to match. Any ideas would be appreciated.
  13. I promise not to post any more pretty lady pictures for the next, er, ah, 3 months. [emoji3] You might have to include panel pictures too. That causes pilots to spend gazillions of dollars. Sent from my E6810 using Tapatalk
  14. That is funny. Sent from my E6810 using Tapatalk
  15. I'll have to learn to fly again before that Sent from my E6810 using Tapatalk
