  1. Aveo engineering wing tips

    Looks great, but how much....
  2. I forgot to mention the inflatable door seal! If you ask me that is what REALLY made a difference Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. I also agree with Andy. No worth the effort. Mooneys are loud. Get a good pair of headsets. I use a Bose and it is ok. Oscar

    Really cool video thank you Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Electrical issues

    Thanks guys, yes I saw that we got three different threads on the same subject with different titles. I would suggest we close this one.
  6. Insurance

    I just renewed with AOPA for my M20C for 770. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Electrical issues

    Thank you! I checked it visually... So that was the part that failed. Thank you for the clarification. I was beginning to freak out thinking what would I do if I lose all power...
  8. Electrical issues

    Just wanted to share with you something that happened to me last Saturday. It was a great day for flying, so we went to the airport with my sons and got into the plane. I switch on the master waiting for the JPI to come alive... Instead nothing happened. I heard the typical click of the solenoid, but beyond that nothing. I checked the battery, 12.9 volts, checked the solenoid, looked ok. So I closed up the hangar and went home. I received a call yesterday that mu "contactor" was bad. My concern is what happens if the contactor goes belly up in flight? Do I lose all power?

  11. Fuel flow calibration

    I also installed a 900 and replaced all my gauges. Calibration is not an easy task as you know. It took me a while to get it right. One thing that I noticed is that it also depends on who tops off your tanks. My experience was that depending on who does it you may get 2 or even more gallons below what you should have gotten. This error compounds and it may mislead you in terms of what your instrument tells you. My suggestion would be to make sure that you top off the tanks fully and log three of four two hour flights to double check on your calibration. Just keep an eye on the refueling process to make sure that you top off your tanks. Oscar
  12. I have bladders with 64 gal. I drained them to calibrate my JPI and I got 63 gallons into the tanks. When I open the tank and I see that there is not fuel left in the tank it means I have about 6 gallons in it. As of running the fuel tank dry, I have to admit I don't feel confortable doing it. But may be I should just try it... Fear of the unknown. Oscar
  13. GTN 650 reception range.

    I had a similar problem and it was the antenna and the connectors. The unit should be able to receive and transmit form more than 40 miles. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Camera Mounts / Location?????

    In the beginning I used suction cups to hold the cameras. However after losing two... I decided to try the sticky mounts and they work actually pretty well. What is the brand of your camera?
  15. CiES Fuel Senders Resource Thread

    Thanks for the update. I am also looking at these fuel senders. I was told that if I replaced my fuel senders with the Cies ones I had to send my JPI to the factory. So I decided not to do it. But if that is not the case let me know. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
