  1. I can't answer the plastic versus metal question...either way, its some of the most expensive metal or plastic I've ever purchased before
  2. It worked fine last week and did not work during pre flight yesterday, with no symptoms leading up to the failure. KFC200
  3. I guess that would help and excuse the video symbol, it's a screen shot of a video I took when the most recent one was installed. Thanks Art
  4. I have a 1981 M20J and I've replaced one or more of the micro switches twice and I've replace the entire switch with new, twice...over the past 8 years. I find it hard to believe this is normal and I'm convinced there is something else going on that causing this ongoing problem. Thoughts? Thanks in advance for your feeback Rick
  5. I faced the same decision even with both PFD MFD. I went with the G5
  6. After 3 months of deciding what, where and how much...I picked up my J from Ron Collins Aviation in Henderson, KY and brought her home to KSUS. The transformation was truly amazing and I can't say enough about the avionics shop, their workmanship and dealing with my ongoing questions and changes. The flight home with my friend flying right wing was VFR and I am glad it was...I have a lot to learn about this EFIS stuff Flight home.mov
  7. Actually the "all clear" is related to the recycle issue reported by others flying the Aspen PFD and a recent SB. Appears to be something to do with ADSB interface and software version...and flux capacitor (I think). Anyway, I "assume" Aspen has figured out the issue and waiting on the FAA to sign off on it or whatever makes that world go around. All I can say is, UGH !!
  8. 2019 Goal Pay for my panel upgrade
  9. Junkman, I guess you could be in my situation...money spent, brand new Aspen PFD MFD and waiting on Aspen to provide the shop with a green light...who is waiting on the FAA to provide Aspen a green light. If it's not one thing, it's something else.
  10. Just some related information regarding the recycle issue... My J is in the shop with both PFD and MFD installation complete. The avionics shop hopes to deliver my plane this coming week (Jan 21st) but that is dependent upon receiving a response back from Aspen...who is waiting on a response from the FAA. Because I have little experience with how all this works, I am speculating Aspen has provided a "fix" to the FAA and waiting on their review/approval. You can bet I will be asking a ton of questions around this issue and the fix upon accepting my aircraft from the shop. I will provide a PIREP around what they share.
  11. It's been a little bit since I have provided a panel update, so here we go. I honestly thought I had this all figured out when I delivered my J to Ron Collins Avionics in Henderson, KY in mid November but how little did I know. First of all I want to thank all the folks on MS for providing input on how best to spend my money :-) and thank goodness there were no shortage of passion and opinion...loved it!! So at this phase of the process all decisions have been made and here are some photos of how things are shaping up. Beyond the obvious in these pictures, I am installing GTX345, GMA345, Stratus USB ports and Flightstream 210 I considered the EDM900 but just ran out of money...so that upgrade will be next on the list and probably at the time the Aspens are upgraded to Max.
  12. We have had so much family and stuff going on I just read your message. I will call you tomorrow and we can determine if Mother Nature will cooperate. Thanks a bunch for the offer and I look forward to connecting with you. Rick
  13. We land PHX around 9:45 local tomorrow and then a two hour jaunt to Sedona. May be cutting it a little close to make lunch and I always like to talk Mooney’s. Especially when you consider my bird is in the shop updating the panel very close to what you did, we would definitely have stuff to yak about I should have done a better job getting something posted sooner. Thanks for the offer and if we happen to pick up an interstate tailwind getting to Sedona I will post and see if you are still at Mesa. Best, Rick
