    Dynon Certified thread

    I have a lot of experience with SV, so I can actually answer definitely. The AP Control Panel is not at all required for AP on SkyView. It's only role is to make AP easier to operate. (It's not hard from the panel, but dedicated knobs and buttons are obviously handy in IFR.) The AP Control Panel is not required, though, and is NOT currently part of the STC. I asked at SnF, and autopilot is definitely part of the current STC and planned for future models (e.g. Mooney). They hope to add the AP Control Panel, too, but can't promise anything there. As for timeline for Mooney, their rep had 2 comments beyond what @Maurader already said: 1. They recognize that people are more likely to invest in a panel upgrade with a larger hull value, so Mooney and Bonanza could none ahead of, for example, Pipers, and 2. They recognize that if the upgrade isn't possible before 2020, it's appeal and value drops. Hope that helps! Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk

    Sun N Fun Learnings

    I counted at least 4-5 new HUD options, with several working with tablet apps... Something worth watching. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk

    Dynon Certified thread

    I asked at Sun N Fun: they're targeting $6K install costs in a 172. Hope that helps! Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  5. Don't hold back- what do you really think? Do you get a commission?? Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  6. Yeah, that seems like a pretty decent reason! I can't tell if it's discontinued or not (it's not listed on discontinued products), but if you can't buy it, that's more-or-less enough. At $1075 list with no installation costs, I'd have thought that would be a sufficient price difference for it to exist, but I guess that's not the case.
  7. Please pardon the naiveté of this question (just a PP, not yet an owner, and not instrument rating), but why not consider something like the Dynon D2 (http://www.dynonavionics.com/pocket-panel.php) for backup AI? It is, of course, not TSO, but nothing removable will be, and it's built on the same MEMS platform as Dynon's EFIS platforms. It should mount where you'd otherwise mount the phone, and it's got battery backup if your electrical system goes down. I'd personally be more comfortable, I think, with a single box with everything standing alone than with a panel-mounted backup AHRS connected by Bluetooth (not the most reliable protocol) to a phone if things went bad.... Assuming that there's a good reason no one suggested this approach, could someone let me know the error in my thinking? I'm not being facetious; I'm really looking to learn more from people with more experience.

    Fun read, thanks! Sometime you're up this way (or I can come down to CGE; Kay's is good), I'd love to see the progress on your bird!

    The J roll

    My club Cessna tops out at 105 KTAS on a good day (You've seen the paint; I'm guessing that's losing me a few.). I don't need too much of a headwind before I'm being passed by cars.... I get excited when GS is triple digits, as I seem to have a knack for finding headwinds. When I go to N57, I keep ending up in the right seat of an RV-7A.... Andre and I are flying it down to SnF if the weather cooperates. That said, I fear that flying his RV is bad preparation for a Mooney; it slows down VERY easily when you pull power because it has all the aerodynamics of a brick.

    Speaking of- still hoping for an opportunity to fly with you and/or Jack..... Cessna's in an annual which is at 1 month and counting.... Argh.

    Like I said- bathroom first, then fund recovery, then Mooney (hopefully). It's very unlikely I'll buy something without first asking you lots of questions (and possibly irritating you/trying your patience.)

    You probably said this previously, but I'm new around here- where in Delaware? I live in Newark (currently fly a club Cessna out of ILG but I'm hoping to buy a plane in the next year or so, which I'd likely base at N57.)
