    Stormscope

    I've got XM and have been casually shopping for a used WX-500 myself. I think it would be a safety enhancer, at least in the storm-prone plains where most of my flying is. Definitely check with Valentine. Sent from my LG-US996 using Tapatalk
  3. You might try barnstorners too...a lot of international owners still use ADF's and snap them up. Sent from my LG-US996 using Tapatalk

    I'm afraid if you got it for free you'd be upside down even if you get it flying. Look at what the wood wing models sell for and guess what 1000? hours of your labor might be worth. Then add the cost of replacement radios, GPS, etc. If it is just a labor of love then perhaps the costs/value don't matter to you. Lookup up Wiebe in Halstead, KS if you want to chat with a wood wing Mooney expert. Sent from my LG-US996 using Tapatalk

    Boeing KC-46 FAA Certification

    That is correct. The 767 originally was certified thru the FAA so it makes sense to continue playing in their playground versus taking their toys to a new playground and starting over. The tactical stuff typically gets "certified" by the appropriate supervising agency or military branch without any FAA involvement. (That's not to say the requirements could be similar or overlap) Sent from my LG-US996 using Tapatalk

    Finally finished!

    My twin! Looks great, but I’m biased. Would love to get some formation pics sometime! Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Transporting Rescue animals over rockies

    We just flew KS to WA and back a few weeks ago with our dog, including some extended time at 13.5 and it didn't seem to bother her at all FWIW. Sent from my LG-US996 using Tapatalk
  8. My AOA system perfectly addresses that issue... The first audio annunciation is "Getting Slow", and since it is AOA based that is sensed independent of weight and airspeed, as it should be. Next comes "Too Slow" which usually sounds during the flare for me. It works very well. Sent from my LG-US996 using Tapatalk

    Dynon Certified thread

    That is a huge improvement! Surely they started to realize they could get all the STC's approved but not sell any if they restricted installations to 3 shops in their network. Good move, great news. Sent from my LG-US996 using Tapatalk

    Fuel Caps - dilemma

    I had them polished by a polishing shop local to me...wasn't expensive either. Maybe $75 but I don't remember. They couldn't polish in the well for the tab, so I masked and painted that area. Sent from my LG-US996 using Tapatalk

    Tempest oil filters

    Try a 12 pt... My combo wrench and oil filter torque wrench both fit fine. Tempest is making great products while Champion was resting on their back end and letting quality slip, so only tempest for me. Sent from my LG-US996 using Tapatalk

    IO-360-A3B6 Cylinders

    Do you know how many hours are on them? If they're first-run/less than 2000 hrs they might be worth 400-500 each assuming no damage, not out-of-round, etc. That's my guess, but now that CMI is making these cylinders the new price might have gone down, which would push the used price down as well. Advertising here and barnstormers is where I'd start. Sent from my LG-US996 using Tapatalk
