  1. If the upgrades were still available at $4k, I would jump on it. $7,500 is a bit much. You do get a 2 year warranty with the Max, so at $4k, you are really only paying $3k for the upgrade. There are a few things I like about the Max over the originals. At night, the display is not washed out like it was on the original units. I think this is because the light sensor works better on the Max. Outside of the better resolution, there are some features that have been added to the Max. One being the METARS showing up on the MFD’s nav map. Makes it so much easier to get local weather conditions.
  2. Guys who fly Bravos shouldn't be caught using iPhone 6s... Even us Executive drivers are on iPhone 7s.

  4. I never got a definitive date range of the problem plugs. I sent them my serial numbers and they agreed to replace them. If you bought them in February, they still could be old new stock. I would call them up and report the issue. I do not think this is a systemic issue with fine wires. I believe it is a manufacturing defect. I posted on the site who I contacted. Let me see if I can find it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  5. I’m one of the people who had a lost electrode on my Tempest fine wires. Tempest told me they had outsourced the welding of the center electrode and brought it back in house when they saw issues popping up. They replaced all 10 plugs I had (8 in the plane and 2 new spares). Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

  9. In 1998, I purchased the Mooney yoke upgrade kit for my F. The kit included all the mounting hardware needed for my F and a large set of blueprints. Back then the kit was a little under $2k. Someone got a quote from Mooney not too long ago. The kit was over $6k. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

  11. We all know the answer to that question. If you need to ask you can’t afford it. [emoji1787][emoji6] What I was amazed to see flying in Jerry’s JetProp how much fuel becomes part of your flight planning considerations. When we left his home base, there was enough fuel to make it to Lakeland. Watching the 60 GPH consumption during the climb was almost as entertaining as watching it drop to 30 GPH at altitude. The winds at altitude initially indicated we would need to land short to refuel but crossing a wind shift boundary, we ended up landing with 1.5 hours of fuel left. And here I was am wor
  12. Don posted on FaceBook pictures of him transporting it. Not sure if he bought it or they are doing the work for someone else.
