  1. I was watching the "Weapon Hunter" on the Smithsonian channel yesterday. The story was about the Oerlikon 20 mm anti-aircraft cannon used by the Navy during WW2. At the end of the story they test fired the weapon and the target was a derelict Mooney N5913Q. Since they didn't have any real explosive rounds, they just shot it up with lead rounds and then detonated a small charge inside the airplane. Pretty spectacular ending for a Mooney.
  2. I emailed the FAA registry and they said they were only up to Sept 4th in processing applications. So, don't worry, it will come eventually.
  3. First of all no waas, no Ads-b and close to 1700 hours. The price does not include VAT which is a heafty 23%. I don't know if you have to pay this if its being exported to the US. That being said, wouldn't it be great to fly it back to the U.S. with a knowable ferry pilot?
  4. My non FIKI TKS pump has failed! A quick email to CAV resulted in a quote of $2600 to overhaul and certify the pump. I guess I'll have to bite the bullet on this unless someone has a different option.
  5. Garmin just came out with a replacement for the KI 256. It even has a built in autopilot adapter. https://buy.garmin.com/en-US/US/p/71902 ... 0-GI275-02
  6. Today I turned on the Aero Safe standby vacuum pump to test the system which I do on a regular basis. The pump would not come on and then I could smell an electrical smoke. I opened the side panel and the electric motor on the pump was very hot and the wires had turned black. The motor appears to have seized. For some reason the circuit breaker did not open. I checked the aero safe web site and I could not find out whether they sell just the motor. Does any one know if anyone repairs these motors or where to find a replacement motor. Everything is electric except the artificial hori
  7. I have the DX2 Ovation. It is approx. 2.5 inches lower.
  8. I switched mine several times with the power on. The last one caused the relay to fail. The relay was close to $300 plus installation!
  9. Just replaced my non-WAAS Garmin 530/430 with a 750/650 with Flight Stream and a GTX 345 transponder. I also have a King KFC 225 digital autopilot. I was assured by the installer that he was aware of the extra wiring requirements (GPS Select) between the 750 and 225. On the test flight, I checked out everything. GPS tracking and turn anticipation worked perfect. ILS also worked perfect. However, the glide slope capture on the 225 would not engage on the GPS LPV approach. The GS appears on the HSI (750) and CI 106 (650) and functions normally. The 225 tracked the lateral nav perfectly in
  10. I checked my landing gear shock discs and all appear to need replacement. I know the discs are a little over a hundred bucks each but how much labor is involved? I am currently in Florida, can anyone suggest some place to have them replaced? Thanks
  11. I had the same problem a couple of years ago. If you have the Moritz package, then there is a small circuit board that measures the vacuum and sends a signal to the gauge. A small hose is connected from the vacuum system regulator (located behind the pilot's side instrument panel), to a small circuit board located behind the lower center panel right by the pilot's right pedal. Except for having to crawl under the panel, it was an easy repair.
  12. How hard was it to remove and reinstall the sender?
