  1. Last top end I used Phillips 20/50 XC with excellent results. Started adding cam guard after the rings were fully seated. Very low consumption during break in and very low now.
  2. Congrats! The most useful rating some would say.
  3. This one is smaller with acceptable resolution. LOP.mp4
  4. Wow! Uploaded the file in it's original format. I'll reformat and shrink it down.
  5. Nice LOP day in my lowly F. A little up and down draft but for over an hour she ran 152-154. Hottest CHT (#3) settled out at 156 with #3 just barely LOP. (7-8 degrees)
  6. I'm 8-10 on the ground - sometimes up to 15 depending on the prevailing wind during the run-up and 0 in cruise.
  7. I quit them after having the same issue. I'm now a tempest user and won't ever go back. A bonus...Tempest has a magnet! Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  8. John, I'd be interested. Let's talk in the spring.
  9. 90% of the time I depart IFR so it's not really an issue. Also, the local ATC is great about letting us know of any activity. As a clarification for anyone coming my way, 6602 includes A (0-3999), B (4000-10999) and C up to 17999. Typically Alpha and Bravo are hot up to 10999 but a half a dozen times a year they light them all up. What I've never seen is a higher level hot without the lowers hot as well. Usually, mortars or artillery are the drivers so it makes sense. Thanks for your comments!
  10. I'm based at a joint use airport (KBKT). Restricted to the East and MOA's all the way around. If I didn't fly in MOAs I couldn't leave the pattern.
  11. Another reason to use flaps is to keep the prop rpm above 2350. A lot of us are prohibited from running from 2100-2350. (some are placarded 2000-2350) The added required power you mentioned accomplishes this nicely.
  12. +1, this is my technique as well. Learn what works, set it and wait. I wasn't aware there were any F models with flap speeds under 109 kts/125 MPH. Thanks for the info!
  13. Mine as well-I stand corrected. The OP used 105 and my brain locked on. Mine are actually in the POH at 120 and 125 MPH translating to a little over 104 and a little under 109. Thanks for the correction.
  14. My white arc is 110 kts with Gear extension speed of 105 kts. Your max flap extension speed is 105 MPH or 91 kts?
