  1. I like flying to get somewhere too, but sometimes even that is more fun lower and slower. Makes shorter trips more of an adventure. Then again flying for an airline has shifted my flying priorities as well. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. That’s my point, stick to the airlines and go simple and just fly for fun. I keep thinking about building a bushcat... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. With all due respect turbo’d airplanes are not great toys... maybe an inexpensive tail dragging LSA to bring the fun back? My NA Mooney has been a great reliable traveling machine, but it’s def closer to personal airliner than toy and sometimes I just wish I could take the doors off and fly low and slow...

    Landed SAV to see the fall eclipse and visit friends. Always happy with sheltair and sav was no exception. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. How much do you trust your Garmin 530?

    I have a 530 in the Mooney and 430s at work. This literally never happens. One other thought, check the RAIM forecast for your location? Maybe you’re just in a bad spot? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Ps having skywatch integrated with ADSB is a huge improvement. See more traffic, get groundspeed and tail numbers and heading on targets. Believe me traffic that you used to worry about will no longer be a worry as you’ll see the bulk of the targets are headed in a safe direction. The Lynx is a really good way to reuse that skywatch antenna... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. I have an older ovation as well. I wouldn’t cheap out and put in a transponder that limits your ceiling to 18000, as I think this would limit your resale value. That means a 1090es solution. These are generally more expensive. Do you have active traffic? If so I’d bite the bullet and put in the Lynx 9000+. Ditch the old sky watch box (its now built into the Lynx and see if you can get trade in value on the old box as a service spare). I did this and it gained me useful load, a new warrantee, higher power active traffic transmitter and an integrated solution at no extra cost for the “+”. The Lynx isnt cheap, but it does have its own gps which simplifies installation. It’s commensurate with the value of an Ovation. And having all the ADSB-in on a screen in the stack is really nice. Don’t go uat only.... imho Greg Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Ovation and Ranger had a baby

    How’d they balance that engine w&b wise! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. You don’t put out ads heralding the unit on social media without knowing the answers already Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. What didn’t inspire confidence was this: I follow Kings Facebook page, and they posted a few weeks ago an ad for the KI300. So i immediately commented, first comment, “so does this mean it’s finally certified and shipping? After a day they responded, will have to get back to you on that. lmao Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
