    Garmin GTN650 or Avidyne IFD440

    If I had a 430 I would go with the IFD440. From scratch the GTN650 would be my choice. I have the 650 now and it has a slightly larger screen than the 440.
  9. I switched to the BY plugs and haven't had a fouled plus since. The same price as the standard plugs. Much better choice than the expensive fine wire plugs if you have a cylinder that's using a lot of oil.

    M20C High Altitude Takeoffs

    I go into Big Bear (L35) all the time. I have taken off at gross wt. with DA above 10,000 in the summer. Taking off to the east over the trees you turn left about 15 degrees and fly over Baldwin lake. West bound you can circle over the lake to gain altitude if you need to. If you lean for take off and don't expect climb rates above 300 feet per min close to gross wt you won't have any problems getting into or out of Big Bear. Engine out on take off is the same as any other airport. Heading into the trees you just fly the airplane between the trees. Sure, the wings will get sheared off be will be survivable. Over the lake you ditch close to shore. Both conditions are not great but survivable. Better than a lot of airports in the Los Angeles area where you have houses, buildings, streets with lot's of power lines to try to land around or on.

    How to change the oil?

    The air blows the oil through the filter medium. All filters have a anti drain back feature so none of the contaminants go back through the engine.

    How to change the oil?

    I just remove the oil in the filter before taking it off. Makes changing the oil a lot easier. I have posted how I do this a number of times.
