  1. Wonderful!!!! Congratulations! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  2. True, but they are getting things under control. Murder rates in San Salvador are now similar to Detroit or Chicago. Tue challenge is to get people jobs, or they will leave. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  3. The World Bank is supporting the development of a new tourism area in El Salvador, called surf city. I am not a surfer... but they seem to have excellent waves for that. So I flew over the area, filmed it and prepared a video. I put it on my you tube channel and now... this... the press is happy saying That i am promoting the area through innovative means... Enjoy the video btw...the area is beautiful and the music, well, fun... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  4. I get 2700 at take off. If you don't get that figure, you can adjust the governor. If not possible, then you may want to consider overhauling it.
  5. Yes, that is part of my job... Is El Salvador dangerous, yes it is if you take the country as a whole. But in terms of my own life and that of my family, I don't feel too scared. You just have to know what you are doing and where to go. Now, can I be at the wrong place and at the wrong time... yes... but then...
  6. Indeed, you have to treat the data with respect, but don't overreact. CHTs, I know they are high on my plane, I was able to bring them down, but then I installed an Electroair ignition and the plane runs hotter. So you deal with it and manage it. Savvyanalisis is a great service but you have to treat the information and their recommendation with some caution. Their recommendations are provided by a software and human interaction is only upon request.
  7. Yes, not easy and I got at some point confused on where I was and what directions I had to turn to. Thanks God for the GPS map...
  8. Actually I did see a huge improvement with the increased fuel flow. CHT's went down by 20 to 30 degrees. That allowed me to install a Electroair ignition without seeing an increase in CHTs.
  9. Mike, I had a similar problem with my M20C. As a side effect my CHT were very high. I tried many things. In my case the solution was to change the carb. But obviously ya can not do it. Another issue that helped was to go over the diameter of the fuel hoses in the engine. We discovered that some were of the wrong diameter. Thus, my fuel pressure was too high and I was not getting enough fuel. After looking into all these issues (including changing the carb) I was able to get from 16 to 17.5 gal/h on take off.
  10. I flew a rather interesting SID and VOR DME approach the other day. Lots of arcs and a circle to land from 15 to 33.. Hope you enjoy.
  11. Thank you for sharing your numbers and for your time putting together the video. I know how much time and effort it takes to put something like this together. I have seen your other videos and they are great. So please keep it up. Thank You!!!!
  12. Yes, I fly quite often over water and I am not scared (actually I am scared, but I take it as a calculated risk). But, when I fly over water and I know that I won't be able to get back to shore, I take at least life-vests with me... I don't wear them but they are on board. After watching the video I will make sure that I have them ALWAYS on Board. Also, I was surprised how fast the plane sunk! Thanks God nobody was hurt.
  13. Indeed they like both, they still believe that there is a way to go to even get close to cars. They like the simplicity of the Surefly, but on the other hand they praised the sophistication of the electroair. From the tone of the article they seemed to be more inclined towards the latter.
