  1. 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.

    Sedona KSEZ Christmas week

    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

    Sedona KSEZ Christmas week

    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

    Sedona KSEZ Christmas week

    Unfortunately we depart PHX Friday night at 7, so the weekend is not going to work. Maybe next time and thanks so much for the offer. And if you are ever in the St. Louis area give me a shout. We can fly the Mississippi and maybe a pass or two past the Arch...it’s a pretty nice view. Hopefully my J will be out of the avionics shop by the end of January.

    Sedona KSEZ Christmas week

    Absolutely I will buy your lunch and you have no idea how much I appreciate the offer and Laurie may want to come with us if that's ok? Let me know if I need to pack headsets and what day/time is convenient for you. Thanks again, this is going to be incredible. Rick
  6. Probably a long shot, but I will be in Sedona Christmas week visiting family and wondering if anyone is based at KSEZ. I would love to experience flying off the mesa, especially in a Mooney. I would be more than willing to pay for fuel. Thanks all Rick
  7. You crack me up Mr. GSX, I respect a person that just tells it like it is.
  8. Nope, a little manual effort is not going to hurt you
  9. Again, can I borrow a couple bucks for lunch?
  10. I decided to pull the trigger, the MFD is going in the panel...can you spare a couple bucks for lunch?
  11. Just curious, is altitude preselect coming from your KFC150 or do you have the Aspen solution?
  12. Based on a new MFD purchase price plus the install I agree, this was a great deal but another $5500 on my already $20k bill. But I do like the idea of prewiring so the future install is as close to a "drop in" as possible.
  13. We have discussed removing the second VOR head. Because I’ve never flown behind glass before I wasn’t sure how busy the display will become. But everything is on the table at the moment so I still have time and why I’ve turned to this group for input.
  14. They offered a refurbished unit from Aspen installed for $5500 with a 1 year warranty. And I totally understand all the reasons to do it while the panel is apart but I had to put the brakes on at some point. Your panel turned out great, by the way.
  15. Your question is legitimate whether you have a dog in he fight or not and while I would be shocked that any avionics shop would lead someone down that road if otherwise. But I have sent a text to the Aspen rep and the avionics shop to clarify. I will post their responses. Thanks Don
