    LSA weight change to 3600lbs (soon )

    My guess would be these will still be non complex birds... no constant speed prop, no retract... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Better metaphor would you drive a car without a toilet? Or would you drive a Mooney with any more drag than necessary? I bet I use one of those bags maybe once a year. Not a big deal... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    #1 is way less toxic than #2. You throw it in your in flight trash which for me is a plastic bag. Probably less air contamination than splash on the surface of the relief tube [emoji12] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    That’s the point, it has gel in it that solidifies, so you can lay it down. And toss it with your trash. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Peed on board, many times. Had someone else toss it out, never. And nowadays use this, so it’s no big deal. TravelJohn Disposable Urinal for Men, Women & Children 3 ea (Pack of 3) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B000QCN298/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_q1RQBb5J397YW Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. No, it was a design that made 242kts possible. High altitude turbo means... More power (heat) together with thinner air. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Neither have cowl flaps. But a high altitude turbo charged engine has much more of a cooling challenge. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    GFC500 Update

    That’s very exciting! I like the king autopilot, but I’m scared at the lack of support.... KFC150 in an Ovation here... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Everyone thinks about it wrong, you almost never need that much fuel! 100 gallon tanks! Think how far you can go on 50! 30! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. The inlet size and shape provides the amount of air pressure going back. That’s back behind the inlets That just moves it up over the cylinders to then blow down through them all. It’s not restriction per se I don’t think. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. I suspect that has to do with the airflow at FL250 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Because what makes it go fast is a turbo to sustain power at altitude. The 310 hp is full throttle which for the most part is only for the takeoff roll and climb. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. I had a similar fault in my 96 Ovation. My most excellent avionics shop, Islip Avionics (ISP), requested the circuit board diagrams from Mooney support and managed to fix it for a small fraction of replacing the circuitry. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Not Fair

    Slick or dated, the king material is kept continually up to date. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
