  1. Recognize the airport? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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
  5. 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?

  6. My mechanic told me it is either "leaking" Lycoming's or "cracking" Continentals. Not sure if it is true......
  7. 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.
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. Here in Minnesota on the last day of January.... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Crazy temps and winds on today’s flight. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. I guess I need an explanation. What do you mean with IPA ? Clearly you are not talking about India Pale Ale. How does IPA relate to this thread? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. That’s what I was thinking but I’m not sure how to be sure. It will be much warmer on the trip home. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Well, I flew to Minnesota today. Didn’t really have any issues except my oil temp was high! Question out to you guys - what would cause high oil temp when the ambient temp is -20 to - 30 degrees? Temp was running about 230 degrees so I had to trail the cowl flaps for a while. Around halfway into the trip, the temps were close to normal at around 160 - 170. An interesting thing I noticed is I had much less heat in the cabin when oil temp was at 160 than when it was at 230 regardless of the cowl flap position. Do I have an issue to resolve or is this a result of the cold temps? Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
