  1. Dynon Certified thread

    That works out to roughly $18k for a 2 screen system (depending on screen size, etc). No clue on install costs Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  2. Dynon Certified thread

    Yes, exactly. My point was that the 7" is enough for the PFD and MFD, but I don't have enough information to know if would need the 10" with the EMS as well. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  3. Dynon Certified thread

    I know that specific panel pretty well.... Worth noting that the 7" screen is quite sufficient for both PFD and map. That RV (classic SV, not Touch or HDX) doesn't have the engine monitoring. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  4. PFD install conundrum, which one...

    I read somewhere here that Dynon Skyview HDX is getting certified in the not-too-distant future. It's a nice system, and the complete package is something like $18K, which includes engine monitoring and autopilot. I haven't used the G500, but I have flown SkyView (in an experimental), and it's a pretty nice system....

    That's great, thanks! I'm also very aware of the importance of a large reserve fund for unknown problems. I feel like the presence of an engine monitor serves two purposes: first, it's a good idea to have, and second it suggests the previous owner probably paid attention to the engine health.@Marauder had lots of advice. Sometime later in the process, I'll probably ask MS for lots of advice! Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk

    I thought I'd add my name to MS.... I'm a relatively new (~80 hours total, ~35 since finishing my ticket in August) private pilot, currently flying a perfectly okay, but ugly and slow (even for the breed) C172M as part of a flying club at one of my local airports (KILG). I've been reading MS for a few weeks now and see at least one familiar face from my other local airport, N57. (Hi, Chris!) I'm getting to the point where buying a plane looks feasible in the near future (roughly 1 year timeframe), and it seems like a Mooney is the ideal way to meet my needs. I've now sat in an especially nice F (again, Hi Chris!) and a pretty nice F, and I'm hoping to fly with the owner of the pretty nice F when we get some decent weather and he's available. My reason for preferring a Mooney is that being able to get from N. Delaware (likely N57) to Bar Harbor, ME (~450NM) in a reasonable time (3-3.5 hours, which corresponds to >130KTAS) without refueling drastically improves the happiness of my better half with an airplane purchase. She's fine with flying, but unexcited about flying for its own sake; she's much more enthusiastic about getting somewhere. Most of the time, it will just be the two of us, and I'd imagine any trips with 3+ people would be relatively short, so I'm mostly eyeing the C/E, though I'm open to an F if the right one comes along at a price within my range. My plan is to get my instrument rating in the plane after getting comfortable in it as a VFR pilot. As of now, my priorities (in approximate order) are: 1. Good, clean, solid airframe 2. Good engine/prop with a decent amount of time (likely) left on them 3. Decent or better avionics. I'd like a 430W or better, a functional second nav/com, a decent panel layout, an autopilot, and an engine monitor. I'd LOVE better, but I can live with that for now. 4. A good interior is important, but I'm fine with redoing that as needed. 5. Not-horrible or better paint is great. I'm ambivalent on electric/manual gear. Anyhow, I thought I'd introduce myself and say that I've been enjoying reading this forum. I should also mention that I'm a big fan of more information rather than less, so feel free to let me know why I'm wrong. Josh
