  1. Any chance you are going to OshKosh this year? GLAP isn't so far away in Michigan. I've picked up parts directly at the factory previously.
  2. I would mask around the installed stall strip with masking tape to mark where it is currently, remove the strip, abrade the surface per the instructions and re-glue it…. Do you have the instructions from Cav ice? I can send them to you if you don’t already have them Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. A reminder to all you Mooney drivers who have TKS. Check the stall strips and ensure it is still bonded well to the wing. It's a $1200 replacement part. Re-gluing it isn't difficult but does take a little patience and time. Don't ask me how I know....
  4. She looks like a nice bird! Let us know how it goes! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. I missed the part that you are working towards your IR rating. In that case I would absolutely recommend TKS. As mentioned, it provides a extra margin of safety but you ultimately need to evaluate your mission and how you fly and in which conditions. Personally, I wish I had waited for a FIKi bird now, but I’m not planning to upgrade either at this point. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. I probably wouldn’t if you are VFR only and plan to stay that way. With TKS, you typically lose a significant amount of useful load and is just another system to maintain. That being said, I have it on my J and really like having it. TKS in a J model is not FIKi certified but it does give a little peace of mind and a bit more time to get out of an icing situation.

  7. Who did you order it from? I ordered wingtip lenses from Great Lakes Aero which were out of stock and they produced it pretty quickly - probably within a week. I live close enough I just picked it up. They also produce windshelds.
  8. Interesting article but it seems to have a few “interesting” points! “and the Mooney M20J’s elevator pitch was accomplished by moving the entire tail assembly, a low-drag solution that added to the Mooney’s speed advantage over other four-seat single-engine airplanes.” I don’t know about your Mooney, but mine has normal elevators with movable tail for trim[emoji23] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. I bought one on ebay awhile ago. Keep looking, you might get lucky.
  10. I’ve had this issues a few times on my J. Twice it was a broken wire in the area of where the wire exits the yoke at the bottom and once a bad micro switch (1 of 3) in the trim switch itself. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Sounds like a broken wire somewhere. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. A 201 wing just popped up on Barnstormers. https://www.barnstormers.com/classified-1630985-Mooney-201-wing-assembly.html?catid=20590
  13. Not sure about windows but I purchased a wingtip lens from them and picked it up in a few days (less than a week) as they didn’t have the RH side in stock so they had to make it. Good people. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. My kneeboard always resides in my airplane and never in the flight bag (I did bring it inside for the clinic but that’s about it). I had a plane aluminum one previously but it is nowhere near as comfortable. BTW - I do really like the Lift shoes too. Great for formation flying when using lots of rudder….
