  2. I do the same - Jeppesen Data subscription which was from I bought the plane. Download the file at home to the JDM app and now use the bad-elf Wombat to update while I clean windows and check the plane over. Used to use an old Laptop but it got so slow and problematic I gave up and got the Wombat.
  3. Can be done by the night elves insitu. I’ve “heard” the Elves used a 1” Diamond hole cutter. Put a piece of sheet steel behind the aluminum baffle. Between the baffle and the cylinder to protect the cylinder. The rest of the area was covered with tape sticky side up to protect the adjacent parts and collect shavings. Very slow careful drilling/cutting. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  4. Good luck, can't help you with Turbo LOP as we have an Ovation based out of AVP.
  5. Same here - has been good with each order.
  6. I brought my Ovation to Don Maxwell the last two years after a bad experence for the first one. He does a fantastic job. Highly recomended.
  7. We thought it was great. We enjoyed seeing all the Mooneys and meeting the folks we have heard from on MAPA and Mooney Space. The factory tour was very enlightening. Carmelina Loved the pitch hitters talk. We would definitely do it again as long as we can fit it into the schedule.
  8. Having had the experience of hail totaling a Newly painted and be won't and panel 205 I'm a little biased - painful to watch you baby totaled from a thunderstorm on the ground - but large Hail is bad. I vote strongly for hangered. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. May 10 sounds like fun. We'll plan and try to make it Noon - 5ish
  10. I may be biased but excellent choice. If all your previous hours were in earlier Mooneys with the 4cyl engine up front I would recommend ding a few hour with a good Mooney instructor. The Ovation, and the Bravo, and Acclaim all have significant weight up front and you sit nearly 5 deg nose up on the ground. Just a weird sight picture when landing. Otherwise they are stable and awesome VFR and IFR machines. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  11. Thanks, all should be careful. Agree - that is sad and should not be aloud. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. I went through this a similar decision about 2 y ago - except was com pairing Bravos vs Ovations. Turbocharged plane more expensive to maintain. So question really came down to how often was it truly needed. We live in the east and flight levels above 15k are rarely needed. In addition altitudes around DC and NY are limited and dictated by ATC. We went with an Ovation and have not regretted it. The efficiency increases a little higher so we usually cruise 10-13k but can do well at 6-8k when we don't want to buck a strong headwind. When looking also looked for planes which already had the GPS updated to WAAS. The early G1000 are not and are expensive to update. Due to our common mission we found one with FIKI, which I consider a safety enhancement not a license to cruise through a major winter storm. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Wondering which shop is now in receivership? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
