  1. M20C. We had to put transponder on top of the 650 because of the frame. The radio stack is aligned with rest of panel .
  2. Thank you!! She is a fun airplane to fly . Flies fast , straight and sips fuel. My friend did a great job rigging the controls. Just a pleasure to fly.
  3. Our G5s are flush mounted I centered them on the control column . The cies fuel quantity system will be a great upgrade for your airplane. I would like to replace my cdi with a garmin GI 275 cdi mfd .
  4. I just ordered a Bruce's cover and some cowl inlet plugs from aircraft covers.com . The price for the canopy cover(201-style long slope windshield mod) was $520 with N number included. . They said it would ship within 3 weeks. The cover is made of sunbrella fabric and the weight is 9LBS . I told my wife i was taking some time off from flying so i could go flying she muttered something and walked away. WE (the dog and I) will be doing some trips and the airplane will need the cover for over nights.
  5. I will get you the arm length from the axles when i get out to the hangar . The reason we weighed the airplane was due to extent of work performed. When we refurbished the airplane the front got lighter . We had planed to move the battery aft but it just would not work with all the other changes . Pucks and most parts are new. The gear was removed cleaned, inspected , and painted . It is a great flying airplane but just a little aft CG.
  6. On the mooney M20c 1967 weight and balance under Oil 8 QT @ 1.875 LBS/QT it says ( Sump assumed full for all flights ) . On loading graph oil is not listed . The oil weight (15lbs)is always the same for weight and balance purposes ? The issue with our m20c (CG46.7) back seat and baggage weight is limited due to cg . Weight stayed close to same over the years but the front got lighter (alternator starter no vacuum system) and equipment was added aft.
  7. I think your empty weight is off. My CG is close to yours at 46.7 (m20c).
  8. M20C Weighed this year 1598 LBS empty weight oil included . Alternator Light weight starter no vacuum system added stec30 auto pilot and most of the mods . Aircraft 15 LBS heavier then it was in 1967. CG came in at 46.7 .
  9. Quotes from 1649 - 3249 . Last year 1098. M20c 1967 hull 90,000 with two listed pilots with a open pilot option. Both pilots have atp .
  10. insurance increase from 1000 to 1,694 .ouch did not see it coming . Aircraft m20c 90k hull. Aircraft has been refurbished with new or overhauled parts. I am low time mooney pilot but high time pilot . Other pilot has lots of mooney and total time. I added jpi930 cies fuel senders , voice alert for gear and stall. gns 650 . all led lights (landing strobes beacon and nav. both pilot mid 50s and fly around 800 hours a year. We both have atp .
  11. If you need the extra performance the E is a great choice.
  12. Growing up in the 60s and 70s was a very different time then today.. As a child I remember riding in the back seat of my dad's vw bug and listening to him praise the efficiency of the VW. He was a efficiency nut but so were most folks .People did not have a lot of extra money . Tax rates for people earning $50,000 were over 50%. The mooney's built in the 60s and 70s were all about being efficient . My dad earned his wings during WW2 and flew in the Korean and Vietnam war . Later in life he purchased a M20c . Years later my son and I purchased our M20c . If your mission is less then 400 nm 3
  13. I added a voice alert that says check GEAR if gear is not down and locked if power is below preset value. IT was a low cost ($600) safety add on that can trap a error .She will let you know if the gear is not down. adding another safety barrier is always a good idea.
  14. A friend did it for us. we are very pleased with panel layout.
