  1. Yeah but does the second one say “Garmin” on the box? I rest my case. :))
  2. Maybe there will be a side by side comparison at Airventure that someone can check out. Thanks for the explanation.
  3. The SunSpot says 150k candela vs the 157,557 candela listed on the link above for the Parmetheus PRO. The SunSpot also claims 7,700 lumens but I don't know how all that translates or relates to each other beyond the higher the number the brighter the light.
  4. That's ashame. The D10A looks so dated. It hasn't changed since it came out circa 2004. If I'm spending $40k on a sophisticated and advanced EFIS system like the Skyview I would want an equally sophisticated looking back up AI.
  5. I just saw this on the Spruce website just now. Does anything know the specs on this new Parmetheus light? I can't find any mention of it on the Whelen website. For $599 if better be f***ing bright. But is it brighter than the AeroLEDS Sunspot? https://www.aircraftspruce.com/catalog/elpages/lopresti-11-16621.php
  6. $40 to $50k??? What happened to the advertised $25k all-in installed price we all heard 2 years ago?
  7. I brought this up on Beechtalk recently but back circa March or April, Jeppesen updated their website only to make it worse than before! You would think a data information company would have a better website than they offer. Now I can’t even see what Garmin GNS or GTN subscriptions run. Come on Jepp! Get it together!
  8. This is a lot of good info. I think I have a pretty good understanding of it. At least enough to talk my way through the oral. Thanks everyone.
  9. I’m planning on doing my commercial add-on this Monday but my DPE wanted to meet with me and my instructor on Wednesday to go over my logbooks, aircraft logs, etc. He even went over some of the questions he was going to ask me about on the oral. One question kind of stumped me. He asked how is the landing gear held in the UP position on the Mooney. The manual doesn’t give much info and the Mooney Pilot Proficiency Program manual has good info but doesn’t answer the question. A google search also did not yield the answer. Does anyone here know where I might find the answer to this? Thanks.
  10. So far the starter is working out well. I’m really liking the 149 NL. I highly recommend it. It’s got great cranking power.
  11. I just got mine today Lance, thanks. Man, that is a bright light! I’d say it’s about twice as bright as the Parmetheus I have on my plane now.
  12. Thanks but I only need the tach cable.
  13. I appreciate that. I’ll give it a try. Thanks!
  14. I really appreciate the offer. I have a bit of a bouncy needle at low RPM which my mechanic says is probably due to my old tach cable. I’m hoping to find a new one in the hopes I don’t have to worry about it for a few years. If I can’t find one I will take you up on your offer. Thanks!
