  1. My annual is scheduled for next week. This is the time we’ll have a look at it. I think we are onto something with the elevator. There is definitely some asymmetry. Not much, but it’s there. I can’t see anything unusual about the ailerons or how they interact. I’ll keep you posted.
  2. I live in Europe, unfortunately. The Aspen (or any glass panel) comes with a learning curve. 10 degrees pitch up on glass looks very different to 10 degrees on the KI256. I’m still learning to look at the speed and altitude tape iso the analog gauges. No need to worry about flying in IMC, you’ll get the hang of it pretty soon. Another thing you’ll appreciate is the track diamond.
  3. I have the E5. It does what it says it will do. Go with the HSI and TAS unlock, you’ll love it. Only thing I miss is an altitude alert. Too bad you need the max upgrade for that. Not too happy with the graphical vertical speed indication, but you get a numerical readout in addition, so it is definitely workable. Biggest reason why I went with Aspen is the dedicated knobs for HDG & TRK. If you like to fly raw data you’ll need those. No restart issues up to now, but I only have the unit since februari this year.
  4. Jeppesen has all the European navdata you can dream of, for whatever Garmin unit you have in your panel. But I wouldn’t call it “reasonable”when talking about pricing. If you want to get rid of EAD and focus solely on Jepp then you can consider Garmin Pilot on iPad, Foreflight or a whole new GPS à la gtn750xi. Again, all of Europe is covered…
  5. You mean approach charts or navdata for a gps navigator ?
  6. Looks like they snapped at the very last moment before impact. I don’t think the aircraft would pancake like that if the wingspar already broke midair.
  7. It’s amazing that we’ll have unleaded 100 avgas BEFORE an LED recognition light
  8. @zuutroy I used this company for similar problems: https://aircraftinstrumentsltd.co.uk It was a repair, not a complete overhaul. But it took a looooot of time before I got it back. If you are on a tight budget, you might consider them.
  9. It looks like Avidyne’s IFD100 app will keep its Jeppesen functionality. By the time Jepp’s app goes out the window, I’ll have an IFD540 installed
  10. Because the European version of FF is not (yet) up to the task. FYI, Jepp charts (VFR & IFR) for western Europe costs about $ 1100 per year. I guess FF doesn’t come for free ?
  11. If you think their customer service was the worst they ever produced, think again: Kaboom
  12. I get the impression that, although it looks very slick, the xpdr head in the panel has no added value/functionality provided the interface via the MFD works well. I’ll try to figure out whether the IFD540 differentiates between TCAS & ADS-B symbology…
  13. @StevenL757, I noticed you installed your L3 on the right hand side in the panel. I guess it is hooked up to your GTN750 ? Would you say that you rather look at your 750 for traffic info + wx and that you merely use the L3 head to operate the xpdr ?
