  1. Wow this is incredibly useful info! I wonder if it is different due to the software update? That actually makes the most sense. Never heard of the big pull method but I plane on trying it!
  2. Car, How far do you lean in relation to TIT before you see it peak out typically? Maybe I am not going far enough? Just scared to get it too hot!
  3. I am still fairly new to the G1000. When I first got my plane I had no problem with the lean function. I would hit lean and then turn back mixture until it peaked. I could go LOP and it would show a minus next to the number that would increase if I continued to lean. If I wanted ROP of peak it show a plus sign after turn richer after hitting peak. However, I recently had the GIA 63W (WAAS upgrade) installed and now I am not able to use this feature. When I now hit lean now I can’t seem to ever get to the highest point where it would start counting back. I don’t want to get too much past 1650 but I wonder if someone could explain the best technique for using the lean feature? Thanks in advance!
  4. KPDT but used link to the archived recordings and that isn’t one of the options:( Thanks for the help anyway!
  5. Had an interesting situation yesterday when on a missed approach I had an almost zero oil pressure reading. Wondering if it is possible to find and listen to that call to tower? If anyone has any info I would be interested to listen to that:) Turns out it was a problem with the gauge and not the engine. Amazing how anytime you do an upgrade there can be these issues..
  6. Looking to purchase a single GIA63W. Please DM me if you can help. PN ending in 01. Thanks in advance!
  7. I do have the stormscope as well as active traffic both on the G1000 already so maybe I could save a few bucks with the Stratus and FF combo? Not as clean but I am so familiar with FF and am still getting used to the G1000 so I am torn...
  8. I had the Stratus with FF on my prior Mooney. Now have a G1000 Bravo and was wondering if Sirius XM weather is worth the extra dough? Thanks in advance.
  9. Needed to read that a few times to comprehend but great info Ben!
  10. DVA, interesting read for sure, thank you. The author mentioned running 100df rich of peak on the way up. I have read where others don’t lean untill established on cruise altitude. Wondering what others do? In my J I always leaned as I climbed out but was thinking now I would leave it rich in my Bravo. Any advise greatly appreciated.
  11. Could you break that down in layman’s terms?
  12. Car, This is my first turbo so no I am not very experienced with them. Have read a lot about it and actually ran LOP for the first time ever from Las Vegas to Central Oregon a few days ago. Was down as low as I could be due to strong headwinds. Flew back at 10,500 and 20 degrees LOP. Running at 29 & 23 I saw FF at 12.8 which seems amazingly low. TIT was just over 1600 and CHT hightest was 385.
  13. Once you have set LOP and your altitude, MP or RPM have not changed is it necessary to recalibrate LOP after say an hour or so or can you just leave it alone? Just wondering what changes in OAT would do to settings and if that requires readjustment?
  14. Mike, It says ‘Stall’ loudly. Not sure what the gear warning says?
