    M20M LOP Discussion

    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.

    Could you break that down in layman’s terms?

    M20M LOP Discussion

    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.

    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?

    “Stall” warning on rollout, very annoying..

    Mike, It says ‘Stall’ loudly. Not sure what the gear warning says?

    Actually will sound before wheels leave the ground. Interesting thought about the spring however. I do keep thinking about how common this issue is with the TKS equipted Bravo’s also!

    Car, Spoke with Jerry Jordon and CAV and he said up till yesterday he has never heard of any issues with his system and this issue. He did also say that he had heard of this happening with the long body and recommended calling Mooney (waiting on a call back now). He thought the problem could be fixed simply by adjusting the stall vane housing slightly.

    Fox, Have you ever had anyone try to fix it?

    I really don’t think it is technique in this case. Believe me I don’t have an issue with admitting when I am wrong but when my CFI first demonstrated his takeoff technique it did the same thing. That plus the other Bravo with TKS I flew in did the same thing and the owner of that plane had many years experience. Strongly think it may be more of a TKS issue than anything else at this point?

    Except I also hear the warning on climb out at 90ish?

    Had a Mooney M20J before. This is a whole new level! Glass and trying to learn the whole LOP procedures is making things interesting. Not to mention engine management!

    Pitot static tests are current. I do have TKS and have only ever flown in one other Bravo that also had TKS and the same issue! Have had a checkout with a CFI and we stalled around 61 or 62 indicated dirty. So now I am thinking maybe it is an issue only with TKS equipted Bravo’s?

    I have been pulling back the yoke around 45 to 50 to take pressure off the nose, then lifting off around 70’s. Climb out in the 90’s for the first 400 or so then gradually increase speed to around 120. I am still a very new Bravo owner and have less than a dozen takeoffs under my belt.
  15. Is this a common issue? Very disconcerting for passengers! I asked a mechanic to fix it and he charged me an hour to adjust the angle on the stall indicator with zero difference. Guess I should point out that I am not stalling and just rolling down the runway taking off normally (even says “Stall” on takeoff up to a few hundred feet).
