  1. LOL...I too was trying to log in all day from San Diego without any luck...major withdrawal...need my Mooneyspace!!
  2. Jim. Thank you. That is very helpful. I will share with my avionics tech. I was not aware that it constantly monitors the trim system but now it makes sense why the TRIM error was generated when the autopilot was off. After the avionics folks removed and tested the KC192, and reinstalled it, I have not had any issue in any further flights...not sure if it is due to reseating the connectors or just part of the random failure mode. I will keep flying to see if/ when it happens again. Thanks again. Eli
  3. What a great write up - Thank You!! I’m so sorry to have missed it. Looking forward to next year!! I think I’ll go to Sunriver sometime when the fires are done. That canoe ride looked epic.
  4. Before the shutdown, I was commuting in my J between KMYF and KSJC/KPAO. Like you, I planned to take SWA if there was icing, convection, 0/0 conditions etc. and ended up on SWA maybe 30-40% of the time. Each one way trip in the J on average took 2.5-2.7 and burned about 25 gal. I like the reliability of the IO360 on the J and never had to scrub a flight for a maintenance issue. I am sure with a Bravo, FIKI, etc. I would have relied on SWA less but I am ok getting on a 737 when conditions are beyond the capability of the J.
  5. Congratulations!! She's a beauty.
  6. Hello all. My M20J has a KFC150 which has been very solid and reliable notwithstanding being 21 years old now. I wanted to share an infrequent KFC150 trim failure mode that I have now experienced twice and wanted to see if our awesome collective can shed some light at possible root causes. Both failures occurred while I was adjusting the trim by actuating the yoke trim controls - once when leveling off from a climb and the second time while making adjustments on a descent to final. In both cases the TRIM annunciator light on the KC192 illuminates (steady - no flash) and the KC192 aural
  7. Please post photos when you do it. I’ve been considering the Rosens but am concerned they will be too big for the space.
  8. Looks great! I love it!
  9. after a lot of research, I purchased a Dahon EEZZ D3 and when folded it fits nicely in the cargo area through the opening w/o having to remove tire or seat...but it takes up more than 1/2 of the space so if looking to pack 2, the second one would likely have to go in the back seat. You can use a folding bike bag to keep the grime off the seats if storing there. For me, light weight and ease of folding was critical as well as good build and components - and the D3 hit all those requirements. https://www.insider.com/best-folding-bike#the-best-folding-bike-for-flat-ground-2 It is curren
  10. Only if you don't have an independent backup for altitude, attitude and airspeed and are running sw versions 2.10 or 2.10.1.
  11. I guess not everyone updated. Seems like a way to force the update.
  12. FAA is adopting a new AD for Aspen systems running software version 2.10 and 2.10.1 without independent backup instruments for attitude, airspeed and altitude. https://www.federalregister.gov/documents/2020/07/31/2020-16592/airworthiness-directives-aspen-avionics-inc I’m glad I got the GI275 as a backup...everyone affected should get the software update before August 17, 2020.
  13. Congratulations!! Can’t wait to see the pictures!! I’m sure you’ve probably discussed this with others but just in case - please make sure to have a thorough pre-purchase inspection done by a mechanic with good Mooney experience. It will establish a good ownership foundation and start your Mooney experience on the right foot!! Very exciting - you will love the plane! Go Mooney!!
