  1. I would also not do it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Good point, the angle you are sharing. I will change my procedure. Oscar Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Since I bought my M20C I have been draining the gascolator first and then the fuel tanks. The explanation I was given was that the gascolator was the lowest point in the fuel system and if there was water in it would accumulate at that point. By draining gas water would be eliminated...

  4. I agree with you. I did whatever could be done to reduce my CHTs . They got better, but are still in the mid 400 during climb and high 300s in cruise. i just monitor them closely, don't allow the CHTs to get over 465 (my problem cylinder is #3).
  5. Yes, I know. However, with my engine I had a harder time starting with the boost pump on... go figure
  6. In my C model, I turn on the boost pump until I get fuel pressure, then I turn it off. Mix rich and pump the throttle three times. Wait one minute and crank. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Nice trip you are planning! With regard to your questions, put the sticker close to the door, as the CBP official will be able to see as soon as he gets close to the plane. Island hopping there are some nice videos on YouTube that may give you some nice ideas. Customs overall are not an issue as long as you follow the proper procedure. Most of it Is already online.

  12. All over the news is a close call yesterday of a drone coming close to an Air France flight on final (700feet) landing at KIAD close to Washington DC... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. How long did it take you to get up there? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. I agree, these units are overpriced if you compare them with the rest of the IT industry. However the cost of bringing them to the market is also outrageous. Now about the Aspen offer... I got the same offer, 10K for two additional screens. I like the idea, however, given that I already have the 750, 650, 795 and my mini ipad connected via a 210 to a GDL 88... I really wonder what additional functionality a second ASPEN screen would give me. Most likely the answer would be I can get rid of the Airspeed and Altimeter, but not the AI... (or can I)... Now, getting back to the math, is it worth 10k plus installation cost? I don't know, I don't see the advantage. However, Aspen is coming out some some additional function in their new 2.9 software upgrade that are really interesting. Interface with STEC autopilot and FD is one of them. The price is attractive and it really shows that they are moving forward. Let's see what they come up with for SUn and Fun or for Oshkosh.
  15. I join you in your prayer! If you find a solution let me know, so I start praying to the same gods. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
