  3. You've definitely succeeded with me. I've understood and been aware of DA since being a student (before my PPL, I'm still a student of the art). But some of the points you brought up earlier about finding out what MY plane will do under different sets of circumstances has made me decide to do a series of tests to know for sure. Thanks for your contributions to this forum.
  4. I agree. Most of my flying has been from and to airports at less than 1000' MSL. My wife and I flew to Pueblo, CO (around 4,600 MSL) last fall on a high DA day. We had to wait for TO clearance for about 5 minutes and since I was at my normal to me full rich, I experienced what I suspect was the onset of some plug fouling. Went as lean as I could and by the time I got clearance, it had straightened out. Richened mixture to 1250° EGT for take off and everything went fine.
  5. I've worked in the metal trade around welders my entire adult life and not even the best of them would recommend repairing that thin metal without TIG or MIG. Yes, there are shops/welders out there that would be able to repair, even in its current state.
  6. Best $80 I’ve spent since starting to fly xcountry! I needed to bring my plane to Longview, Tx for an annual. A front passed through on Friday night, and there was a secondary system following it. The Route Profile with the ETD in 1/2 hour increment feature allowed me to leave in a very narrow window (VFR) and fly 350 nm with no problems whatsoever. The wealth of information all in 1 window was accurate and amazing. No looking at 6 hour blocks and switching back and forth between windows was great. IMHO WeatherSpork is the best weather tool I’ve ever tried.
  7. What is the reason for the small hinged door on the battery panel? BatteryMinder? Is that original to the plane? If not who can put that on mine? Right now I have to fish the pigtail for my battery minder out of the step opening after every flight. It seems a little door like that would be perfect.
  8. +1 for Aeromotors http://www.aeromotorsllc.com/aeromotorsllc/products.aspx They did mine last year for ~$400. Fast service, excellent work, very responsive (especially for a relatively small operation).
  9. You may be able to get it off from the outside, but I assisted the A&P who did my annual with the reinstall and he had to get inside the tail to hold backup. Maybe mine was a one off....
  10. Just means you've got too much car!
  11. I I understand Anthony's post, it has to be less than a gallon (Level 1). Unusable would be Level 2.
  12. Easy Installation Installation is as simple as replacing the aft aircraft position light. No airframe modifications or additional antennas are required. Works with any Mode C or Mode S transponder. Transponder data is provided via the existing aircraft wiring system using the Power Transcoder. tailBeacon uses the existing mounting location, breaker, and wiring. The installation requires 2 screws and reuses the existing power and ground to your current position light
