  1. I wasn't surprised that Mooney's were not available but I was surprised that Piper isn't represented. It looks like this is more for pilot wannabe's rather than real pilots being able to use it as a tool for our own planes/benefits/training.
  2. I'm wanting to put a desulfator/trickle charger, in the plane on it's next annual. I can't find or I don't know which log book to look in but I cant find what battery is in place or when it was last replaced. I looked at the air-frame log book pretty in depth and can't find when it was replaced. I popped the top off the batter box and peered inside, this is what I saw... thank you and forgive the newb question...
  3. ukrsindicate, you have mentioned fuel mixture a couple of times, and that may be part of the issue. Mooney's don't do well, in my reading and experience, at full rich. Play with it and see where the leanest to taxi is, enrichen a tad and taxi out with that setting then enrichen a bit when you do the runup and definitely have it richer for takeoff but still probably not full rich. My J likes to be out almost an inch. I, too, think you have more going on though. 2,000 foot takeoff roll and I'd be aborting the takeoff. I too am just a private pilot with only a year Mooney experience so I don't know what I don't know.
  4. I, for one, have learned from this post. I don't think I'd ever heard of a "flangable light"... so I googled and found this:
  5. I keep expecting to see that someone that we all hold in the highest regards has created a corporation and purchased the name and buildings...
  6. I thought the oil filter would always be almost half full, with the port in the center the oil below the port would remain in the filter? (port may be the wrong word, i used drain originally but didn't think that was correct either)
  7. It's the reverse Tardis affect. I'm surprised the Johnson bar can handle the landing gear... Very impressive.
  8. These look like a great idea, i wonder how they would fare with 100LL spilled on them?
  9. OK, admittedly I'm not the brightest light on the tree when it comes to IT stuff, but ... how would you add this to your iPhone to work out in the air? Thank you and enjoy the fish.
  10. I used pillow foam from Walmart and cut to size... This plane is in a hangar most of the time, except when traveling, but it keeps the bugs and birds out.
  11. Granted, most of you Mooney drivers are IR but I'm not. One thing I've found is I can buy the insurance and then have a partner as an additional pilot as long as they have their IR and some additional time in type, I think its 100 hours in type.
  12. I watched a YouTube video over the weekend where an RV8 driver did the trifecta of NYC with a low pass ate each. Then last night watched Christopher do the 3 ship Mooney low approach. Lot's of low passes and t-n-g's at the big places right now. The only thing I've seen similar in the recent past was after the 911 shutdowns, where places like KMEM were asking schools for help in landing so they could improve their traffic counts.
  13. I like the sheet rock screw go-around button...
  14. My plane was probably in the factory at the same time yours was... N5807T 1985 J Congratulations on the purchase!
