  1. The answer to Mcstealth’s question is yes. All the applicable G1000 avionics softwear Is up to date and does not require further upgrade. That was done when the WAAS and 345x packages were installed at the same time in 2017 if memory serves. Thx.
  2. Serial: #29-0405, useful load 943.94 lbs. Thx.

  4. As one of the 130(?) or so G1000 /Stec 55x long body owners I have joined Barrys list of committed orders. Frankly, I "love" my Ovation (perhaps too much?) and having already invested in the WAAS upgrade, active traffic and the ADSB in/out thing, upgrading the AP seems like a veritable slam dunk of a decision at least for the type of flying I do. Yes, I am hoping that the same G1000 annunciations and connectivity that I enjoy now ends up being part of the final 3100 package but I am willing to consider variations on that theme in order to get to a digital AP. As a side note, I contacted bot
  5. Hi, I experienced a similar issue and if memory serves correctly, it was traced fairly quickly to a simple broken wire in the RPM sensor mounted on one of the mags(?). Didn't even need to replace the sensor...
  6. I too live / fly in the Great White North and simply install the plate in the late fall / remove it in the early spring. The only time I go to the effort of taking it out during the winter is if I do a trip to the southern US (yes please!). I often see OAT's of -20C at altitude during the winter but this is from a trip to Kapuskasing (north western Ontario) a couple of weeks ago.... -23C on the ground at midday....so far at least, thats the coldest I have personally experienced. But as BorealOne points out, it can and does get much colder....Merry Christmas everybody I'm off to throw anoth
  7. Thanks for sharing this Buddy, I have been having trouble with the same issue on my install too.
  8. So, back in the air now and it seems I have the same issue as Buddy. I have an older iPad and a 1 year old iPhone 6 and neither will connect to the 345. The iPhone finds it quicker than the iPad but I cant get either to pair at all. Working on it with my avionics guys but if anyone has feed back from their own installs I would appreciate it. Thx. Grant.
  9. Hi Buddy, I do not have A/C. I will be back into air sometime this week (annual basically finished now) and will let you know how I get on. Cheers.
  10. M20R, G1000, S-TEC 55X. My install was finished in late December, I did the G1000 WAAS update and the G345R (without WAAS). I have only flown a hand full of times since as my annual started the first week of January but IMHO, this is how the plane should have been equipped from the get go...love it! I have one Canadian market issue left to iron out, it seems the G1000 WAAS kit ships with the US only Safetaxi data base which isn't exactly perfect for those of us living north of the border (where has my home field taxiway map gone?). Apparently its as simple installing a new Garmin base map
  11. I like to think I know the "Doc" reasonably well and so I was surprised to see the title of this post..... what did Clarence do and how come I missed it?! Anyway, having now read the original thread I wanted to come back to this one and simply say thank you to Clarence. Having suffered from the occasional case of hit-send-too-quick-itus in the past myself, I think reaching out to the Mooneyspace community in the way he has here is commendable. As others have noted, humility is an admirable but seemingly rare quality these days. Wishing everybody happy and safe flying in 2017,
  12. Russ, I fly an Ovation 2GX with the same AP G1000 configuration and have experienced exactly the same run away trim issues you have. The first occasion was when the plane was new to me and was, to say the least, a handful. The problem seems to be resolved now but it has left me hyper vigilant during every clime out. For a while there I thought that I was doing something wrong but I'm pretty sure that there is some kind of systems issue involved. Grant.
  13. Thanks for the feed back folks, I'm packing more sick bags now... I have not taken the MAPA PPP course but it sounds like a great fit for me and I am going to see if I can arrange to be in Fort Myers in February for the next one so thanks for that suggestion. Also (excuse the ignorance) what is a "FAST" card? Obviously formation flying related but I confess I have not come across that before and unless I miss-typed it Google hasn't either.... Talking of IMC, I've been sitting in Ontario watching the WX at various spots between me and KGKY (and specifically in and around Dallas) for th
  14. So, long time Mooneyspacer but first time posting, here goes… I only came to flying about 6 years ago but confess I have become bitten with the bug.… I consider my self fortunate to fly regularly (about 250 hours a year) and just passed my latest IPC. However, I recognize that I sometimes suffer from a lack of confidence mostly in bumpy or harder IMC where, despite keeping on top of hand flying skills, I know that I worry about the “what if I had an emergency right now” scenarios too much. Honestly, some of the stories I read here and on other GA sites of folks flying to IFR approach minim
  15. Z. Totally agree about Clarence's shop at CYKF, Tri City Aero. He an MSC with huge experience, a great staff, fair prices and is always willing to go the extra mile. If you are flying a Mooney in Southern Ontario, it's a must. I'm based out of CNC3 with an Ovation and had a J prior to that. Feel free to PM me, happy to get together some time. There are several other Mooneys flying out of the smaller airports in the area too. Grant.
