  1. I have chosen dark grey powder coating and I am very happy with it. The idea was to avoid potential blending of lighter colors and to have a more modern look than before.
  2. Mmh ... I thought the primary purpose is to destroy airflow ...
  3. Joe, you should have a schematic of your bus architecture in your POH. In my 231 the busses are made up by a simple connection bar connecting the CBs. That is the location of the busses. Primary engine instruments should be connected to the main and not the avionics bus for obvious reasons.
  4. That is exactly the problem, so therefore I would not do longer flights until the issue is resolved. I have to add that the replacement unit worked flawlessly from day 1. So I suspect that this was really an infant mortality issue. The unit itself is really nice.
  5. I had a new JPI 900 which showed a similar behavior and after a few hours it failed to come up at all. JPI replaced the unit under warranty.
  6. We will look at this ... The senders have been installed just after the new reseal.
  7. That ist part of the Soundex multilayer insulation/sound proofing
  8. Looks like we found at least one source for the fuel smell. The senders were installed mid 2017
  9. Fine - it is not worth the discussion. I don‘t feel the need to convince anybody and wish you good luck ..
  10. Interesting ... you said differently in the thread about your refurbishing... So what - I can only offer experience and try to help others not to make mistakes I did - judge yourself ..
  11. There are always two sides of a story - but I know of at least one more person having trouble for more than a year.. I have worked on special mission aircraft for a couple of years so I consider myself reasonable competent. I will not discuss this in a public forum, but I have lots of pure technical and not emotional detail and fortunetly that has only one side. Anyhow it is everybodys own decision and the only thing I wanted to point out is that there are different opinions than yours. If I remember correctly they painted your pucks, because they forgot to cover them before spraying ... and fortunetly they had to be replaced anyway ...
  12. I would recommend to ask others about their experiences
  13. I have the same problem as Nico and mine were resealed in a shop in Europe as well. Dealing with that shop was the worst maintenance experience I ever had. We should probably check if it is the same ...
  14. Both the G5 and the G3X Touch contain the autopilot software. The G3X Touch additionally provides autopilot control softkeys, so no separate GMC or G5 is needed in a minimum installation. What the STC calls for is a different story ...
