  1. Pop out the center circle disk, there are 2 screws that hold it to the yoke. You can put a dab of RTV behind the emblem if you can not tighten the screws. Don't get them too tight the plastic is brittle and breaks easily. The disk probably has RTV holding it in place also.

  3. Our yoke emblems were broke and missing. I made a cast of one to replace ours. They turned out great! Do does anyone need a replacement? You will have to drill the mounting holes and paint them. A friends wife cut the Mooney logo out in vinyl.

I notice it a lot during final approach and landing. I have to trim it nose up quite a bit on final to try to ease the required control pressure but I still find myself having to use both hands on the yoke to get 'er on the ground. The CFI I have been flying with has Mooney time, he also thinks it seems pretty heavy. Most other planes I have flown I could fly with two fingers and my thumb.... Except for a Bonanza B36 its heavy like this Mooney but it
