  1. I'm a two screener. I used the MFD on a regular basis. Weather, traffic, TFRs, StormScope are all displayed on the MFD and it is extremely useful. As for the third screen, it is only a EFD 500 version. It does not have an AHRS or can be used in reversion mode. If you are using the Aspen charts, I think it makes sense to have one. Otherwise, having it on the iPad make more sense. But, for those single screen people, GET THE SECOND ASPEN! I think you will find how useful it is.
  2. You will get one complete fill with the large tank and each subsequent fill will be less than the max cylinder pressure. I.E. 2200 the first time, 2000 on fill 2, 1700 on 3, etc. How many partial fills you will get depends on how large the O2 cylinder you are filling. The trans fill adapter you are showing looks like it will attach to CGA 540 on both sides. Again, depends on what kind of cylinder you are filling. Mine are 540s but the other guys who are in the tank farm with me have a much smaller filling port and one guy has a medical tank. Show us what you are filling. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  3. The whip type look like a Comant 109. Not sure on the Narco one. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  4. As a current F model owner, $1M dollars. [emoji15] Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro

  6. I was on my way out to work today and noticed a Mooney flying overhead. They had their landing gear down. I looked up the plane on FlightAware. Curious why they were flying this way. Please solve the mystery. Ferry flight? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  7. The installation should have some cost if you add the audio wire for the altitude call outs. As well, I suspect there is some time spent updating the logs. Not sure about the shipping costs. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  8. Most of the MSCs have some level of stock for the Mooney specific parts. As well, many of these parts are cross overs from other manufacturers. Like the Cleveland wheels, Heim joints, engine components, etc. There are also a number of aftermarket manufacturers for plastics and windows. What you are left with are the parts that you either need to produce yourself, find it from a Reaper or have it rebuilt. There really isn’t a lot left other than those components that you truly need a factory produced part. And those needs are usually tied to something significant. Like taxiing your wing into a pole. Even then, the Reapers can find stuff for you. Here is an example of an owner produced part. A visor. Also had a new mixture control knob machined. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  9. Don’t take this the wrong way. But as a long time owner (28 years and counting), I don’t get the fear about the Mooney situation. In those 28 years, I’ve been through numerous Mooney ownerships/bankruptcies and during that time frame have yet to experience the inability to get a part. Yeah, sometimes it may require an owner produced part and other times, the services of one of the Reapers. But in the end, a solution was available. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  10. Yeah, actually saw it a few days after he geared it up. It was in Ben’s hangar. He might want to consider switching another brand ... Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  11. I am not sure it is worth the trouble. I just replaced mine. BTW - I don’t recall that part number. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  12. Ben said the turnaround times have been all over the place. Seen some turned in 5 days and others took 8 weeks. The guys who paid for the exchange are waiting as well. A guy on my field who opted for the exchange has been waiting since the start of the program. I suspect there are staffing issues and probably some poor planning based on the number of people who are doing the upgrades. I did see something over at Ben’s. A rare Peter Garmin plane spotting. Heard he is getting an Aspen 2500 installed. [emoji1787] Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  13. Why am I not surprised you have one of these? [emoji1787] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  14. Unfortunately a lot of prospective owners don’t take these fixed costs into consideration when buying. It is a large portion of the ownership cost that hits you whether you’re flying or not. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  15. Or was that nightmares? I am not sure anymore, it all was a big blur with my wallet being replaced from opening it so many times...
