    HSI DG/ Compass alignment

    I am fortunate to have Bob Bramble at my home field, he overhauled my AI last year. My DG currently is a bit over 10 degrees off now, going to have it checked out.
  2. On my 93 M20J, my King HSI DG is off about 10 degrees from my compass that matches the compass rose at my airport. The remote compass sending unit above inspection plate in left wing has a circular sliding adjustment available, yet only provides about 3/4” total travel, perhaps about 20 degrees. When I attempt to turn the unit to align my DG, I’m limited to about 10 degrees east of 360 degree north. I don’t see a simple way to re-install unit in different orientation so that my available travel is more centered. I must be missing something to do.

    ISO Sidewinder towbar

    I’ve dealt with other vendors in similar circumstances and have learned to just walk away, regardless of my desire for the product.

    Forgetting the potential special pricing, how much do these units typically cost?

    Rudder pedal extensions revisited

    I have a newly purchased set of 3” extensions and have reconsidered whether I should have purchased the 1.5” instead. So I may be interested in swapping the 3” for 1.5” or possibly selling outright the 3”, but not sure. My concern is I may add a partner to my plane and fear he might be too tall and hesitant to install the 3” extensions until I know better. If it were just me flying I wouldn’t hesitate to install the 3” ones.

    Garmin GMX 200 MFD

    Selling a used 650 and buying a used 750 is very expensive. I just bought a Garmin Aera 660 and it is “aviation grade” mounted on my yoke using much less space than my iPad Mini.
  11. I have a GTN 650 and GTX 345 but the screen size is too small on the 650 to read anything on the map. I wish I had a 750 but the 650 was installed before I bought the plane. A Mooney friend has the older Apollo MX20 (Garmin bought Apollo and replaced it with GMX200) in his plane connected to his GNS 430 and it works great. The MX20/GMX200 is a large screen. Im considering purchasing a used GMX 200 and installing I’m my 201 for map and traffic, or I could subscribe and get charts for the GMX 200. The unit is not supported by Garmin anymore but since it’s only acting as a display I’m not so concerned given the lower cost. Used GMX 200’s sell for $2k -$4k plus install. I use an iPad Mini with ForeFlight connected to my 345, but would prefer to have a panel mounted sunlight readable large screen that doesn’t freeze or get too hot. Anyone have any wisdom to share on this thought?
  12. Friend sent me this today from Okeechobee.

    Alan, does the GMX-200 connect to a GTN-650 for map or GTX 345 for traffic? scott

    Garmin G5 Review

    I have a KAP 150 autopilot, GTN 650 and GTX 345. My AI is KI 256 and King HSI. It’s my understanding my autopilot can connect to a G5 replacement of my HSI, but that the G5 as AI won’t drive autopilot. Can someone confirm this? My AI is acting up, and I’d prefer to replace it with G5 rather than overhaul 23 year old unit. Thanks
