  1. And for you guys who had me email you the blueprints for all of the specifications needed to install them, this beats the 6AMU factory kit price (if they even sell them anymore). Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  2. I’ve tried the OPTX on my Sergenti’s. I got them to stick okay but found they weren’t optically clear. And even with the 1.25X power, I found the top edge of the bifocal very noticeable and irritating. Not that I’m a cheap bast$&d but I found the cheap bifocal available at www.boomersintheknow.com work fine and are CHEAP. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  3. My F has this restriction and I will always end up in that range on leg after the FAF on an approach. I fly approaches at 100 KIAS, even if I slow down to 90 KIAS, I’m still at the bottom end of that arc. I think the word “continuous” means not to set cruise power.

  4. Looks like it rusted and then started arcing when it broke. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  5. You’re welcome. Just look closely at the adapters. You’ll want a CGA 540 if you’re filling a standard portable aviation bottle. Other adapters may be required if you’re using it to fill an onboard tank or if you picked up a portable medical bottle (that will require the CGA 870 adapter). Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  6. They how else will they find my body at the bottom of the ravine I drove off? My shiny bald head? [emoji3064] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  7. I got burned when a mechanic suggested my issue was an alternator problem. Replaced it with a Plane Power only to find out that the voltage regulator was the issue. The Plane Power website has a troubleshooting tree. I’d start there. https://planepower.aero/wp-content/uploads/2018/02/Troubleshooting-Single-Engine-Externally-Regulated-Alternators.pdf Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  8. I purchased the Aerox transfill adapter for one tank. https://www.aerox.com/product-p/fa540-72-g.htm After I purchased it, another MooneySpacer turned me onto eBay’s selection of transfill adapters. I used them to add on the remaining two tanks. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  9. A lot of the photos on the web have copyrights on them but in many cases they are in small print and hardly visible. The ones who take it seriously are the ones who will watermark their photos on the web. If you look through the photos you posted, you might find the one they are referring to. I have a friend who’s wife is responsible for tracking and paying royalties to musical artists. It is amazing how much money flows this way. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  10. Dan - with these visual approaches, do they consider the 3 nm waypoint the FAF for GS intercept? Or does it even matter where the GS is intercepted as long as you are at or below the correct altitude? Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  11. Nah, they were too busy making sure their masks weren’t leaking around the edges. We don’t know how lucky we are to be able to fly the country without the stress of knowing not what our fellow passengers are carrying with them. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  12. Bob & I spent way more on our vintage Mooneys than we should have. The only person who I think has gone further is John Breda who essentially turned his F into a J. Bob was dedicated to not only maintaining his E but to bring it to modern standards. I would be surprised anything shows up on the pre buy. I spoke to Lynn yesterday and learned you were moving forward. If you get buyer’s remorse, please let us know. [emoji6] The reason for my call to Lynn was that I have a buyer, cash in hand, ready to swoop in. As for the plane, there is always something that you can add or change. I would fly her a bit and see what changes you want to make in order to make it yours. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  13. Finally found a picture! Hey Danb when you coming over to fill up? Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  14. Bob epitomized what we all should be striving to be. A caring human being, strong in his faith and a genuinely good person. Not long after I joined MooneySpace, I got to know Bob through some PMs. I invited him to stop for lunch on one of his trips up to the Minuteman Airport from North Carolina. He was the first MooneySpacer I met. Even before Stinky Pants, the Grim Reaper and the rest of you crazy Mooniacs. He gets out of his plane, greets me warmly and hands me a bottle of his home made wine as a “hello” gift. Who the heck does that? Heck, when Stinky Pants first visited, he wanted to know when the burgers were going to be done! I’ll miss his demeanor and his calming ways. We didn’t just lose a fellow Mooniac, we lost part of ourselves... Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  15. It’s not. I’m trying. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
