  1. This is a nice event. Two people - Elizabeth and Warren
  2. I was only practicing a bit until I in fact did blow past him. He has not had any formation training so the most I could hope for was him to fly straight and level until I tired of flying slowly!
  3. A little formation practice. Flew formation with a buddies 182. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. These are very expensive. I purchased one from Lasar in December (seems like it was the only one in inventory at the time) and it was $492 shipped. Worst part is, it turned out to be a bad connection so I didn't really need it. I guess I have a spare.
  5. Recognize the airport? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Don't wait too long to replace the cable if lubricating it doesn't help. Broke a throttle cable on a cherokee - fortunately on the ground. Would have been a little too interesting if it happened in the air.
  7. I don't have the stock ammeter so I really don't know actually what it is indicating. The current draw is being displayed on the VM1000 engine monitor.
  8. The humming noise was gone as well as the low voltage indication as soon as I started shedding electrical loads. Pitot heat, TKS pump, etc. Is this consistent with a bad filter? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Have had a couple of instances where I had electrical anomalies. First instance was over voltage warning during climb. I had already entered IMC so I kept climbing- the issue “corrected “ it self after 10-15 seconds. Second instance was also during climb in IMC where the voltage was dropping out to 11-12 volts. Both time the TKS pumps were on. When I was getting low voltage, the amp meter was indicating about 40 amps as almost all electrical devices were on. The issue was corrected after we popped out on top and started shedding electrical loads. Also had a humming in the headset during this time as well. I am wondering if I have a voltage regulator issue or an alternator issue? Potentially I could have a slipping belt but I don’t think that explains why I had a over voltage condition. Thoughts?

  10. My mechanic told me it is either "leaking" Lycoming's or "cracking" Continentals. Not sure if it is true......
  11. Last year was my first year. After the first day of formation training, I was thinking of going home. I'm glad I stayed. Now, I cannot wait for it - it's so much fun flying into OSH this way. A bit intense for us new guys, but loads of fun. I realize it isn't for everyone, but would recommend giving it a try.
  12. One of the best deals in avionics. I have the flight steam 210 with my 530W. It’s awesome. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  13. Looks almost as bad as yesterday when I took off from LJF (Minnesota). Popped out at 3000 for a smooth ride to Michigan on top all the way. Ground speed was north of 170 knots most of the way. Descent through the clouds at 45 degrees F. Hangar was a swamp with so much humidity in the air[emoji15]. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Here in Minnesota on the last day of January.... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
