  1. Same here my engine is '65 but majored in '98, also.
  2. Nice. Even after installing my second Aspen panel, I still used the old ASI. Just changing the scan took time.
  3. Funny you say that. IMO the mid bodies have the best esthetic balance. I feel like my plane looks a little stubby, especially when parked on a ramp with other planes. The long bodies look a bit too stretched. Just my opinion.
  4. Nice. I thought dynon displayed the engine monitor on the 10". Did you just want a cleaner field on the PFD? BTW, do you know how the Dynon AP plays with other units, or is it a Dynon only setup like Garmin?
  5. As long as there is another person alive on this planet, I have someone to blame.
  6. Thanks for all the info. I knew you guys wouldn't disappoint. My schedule is pretty tight until mid-late October. Any red flags or advice for that time of year, especially closer to the west coast?
  7. I've read a lot of people got frustrated with recent issues, but everyone seems to agree that Aspen sticks with you until the problem is solved. Andy has been responsive to my questions on several occasions. Hopefully you'll be satisfied when this is over.
  8. Have you had the firmware updated on the Aspen? I heard that helped with the bulk of the failure issues. Knock on wood, my have been pretty rock solid.
  9. Sent you my info via email. Let me know if you don't see it.
  10. No kidding. I assumed yours was a 28v system. I'll look into it again. I based my statement on some stuff I had googled. You know if it's on the internet, it has to be true.
  11. A buddy wants me to fly with him to move his cirrus sr22 (NA) from middle Georgia to San Diego. He'd fly me back to Atlanta commercial. How hard a trip is it? I'm self employed so taking random days off isn't something I do often. Is flying Friday and Saturday, returning Sunday reasonable, or does that sound a little rushed? Thanks.
  12. Thanks. I checked those out, and I believe someone said a 14v system just doesn't have enough juice. Otherwise, I probably would have done the same.
  13. I was wondering who bought Bob's plane. I sat inside it to check out the 930. It's a beautiful bird for sure. 155 slow is an oxymoron for an E. That gets you into speeds of many J's. As far as missions, yours is similar to mine. My wife and I are officially empty nesters as of last year. The C is perfect except for a lack of air conditioning. Lol. I'm slowly heading down the road of throwing money at a plane that doesn't make sense financially, but I don't see myself getting another plane. The guys on this forum have been invaluable with info and are more than glad to spend your money. Anyway, congrats and hope you remain a fixture on this forum.
