  1. 18 knots is about 20 mph, school zone speed in a car. If the shimmy is hardly noticeable below 20, I’d taxi below 20. How is it at 10 (running speed) or a 5 (very brisk walking speed)? I can’t imagine taxiing a small airplane at 35 mph (30 knots). If you hit a pothole or bump at that speed a prop strike is almost a given.
  2. Which proves that Appareo could have fixed these if they wanted to rather that first deny that there's a problem until the affected units are out of warranty.
  3. GSR (Garmin Satellite Radio) GTX (Garmin Transponder) GNS (Garmin Navigation System) etc.
  4. Exactly what I used, from the Aviation aisle at Amazon. I RTV’ed it to the inside of the cowl to make sure it stayed in place.
  5. New mini announced today. Complete re-design. Narrow borders, larger 8.3 inch display, but same overall size as older ones. Retina display. 40% jump in CPU performance, 80% jump in GPU performance. They showed Foreflight on it at the introduction. USB-C connection rather than lightning. 5G on cellular models. Supports 2nd Gen Apple Pencil. Looks like most of the features of the iPad pro in a mini size. Starts at $499. Orders start today, available next week.
  6. I thought that the shop that held that STC for the M20L conversion closed years ago due to a hurricane around 2004 or so? I don't think the rear seats weigh anywhere near 40-50 pounds. The Porsche Mooney (M20L) had a single power lever, the conversion had to work around that. This conversion may have looked like an Ovation on paper, but don't get fooled. It had the single puck brakes. The landing gear on this long body is from the mid-body 252 (meaning not robust enough for a long body Mooney - no way it's ever going to get a gross weight increase with that landing gear and those brakes). If it was equipped with speed brakes they were the vacuum brakes, which can be troublesome. It had the small fuel tanks, etc, etc, etc. They are nearly impossible to sell once you're done with them. The only chance you would ever have of selling it is to someone who believes they are smarter than everyone else out there looking for an airplane.
  7. You should definitely report any problems when you send it in and not expect them to look for things to fix.
  8. I did this a couple summers ago and am happy with the product: https://justplanetint.com/collections/aircraft-kits/products/mooney-plane-tint-kits
  9. I own an Inogen 3 and it works fine for one person up to 15000. I bought it for $700 on Craigslist with 5 hours on it. There should be used ones available all over Florida.
  10. 810088-508 is a Mooney part number, so most likely it's a dimming circuit made by Mooney that was put in at the factory when it was built. Any of the in-house-built relay boxes for the instrument panel seemed to start with 810088.
  11. I think this might be what you're looking for if you're adding it to another system. The cost doesn't make much sense anymore. https://sarasotaavionics.com/avionics/pss
  12. Search Ebay for small leather binder 3 ring https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=p2334524.m570.l1313&_nkw=small+leather+binder+3+ring&_sacat=0&LH_TitleDesc=0&_odkw=small+leather++binder&_osacat=0 or dayrunner binder leather 3 ring https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=p2334524.m570.l1313&_nkw=dayrunner+binder+leather+3+ring&_sacat=0&LH_TitleDesc=0&_odkw=Dayrunner+binder+leather&_osacat=0
  13. @affricate Engine looks beautiful!
