  1. Speaking about the location of the probes has me wondering for those with multiple probes/instruments, what kind of temperature differences are you seeing. On my plane, I have a probe under the left wing for the JPI 900, I have another probe stuck in the left window and finally one in the Aspen RMS. When I look at the 3 values in flight, I see the JPI is usually 3° or 4° warmer than the window gauge and the Aspen could be 5° or 6° cooler than the window gauge. I haven’t checked the temperatures on the ground to see if it is an accuracy thing or if the placement is affecting them (the window gauge was always my go to gauge). Anyone else experience similar discrepancies between gauges? I think I read in the JPI manual that the OAT can be adjusted. Not sure about the Aspen yet. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  2. 24 or 12V? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  3. Sure it does. When he gets his first $10k annual. [emoji13] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  4. You need a faster processor. Hard to say why Route 116 was selected in the town. From the terrain maps, it looks relatively flat just south of town. Depending on what was planted in those fields, it could have factored in the decision to land on the road. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  5. Gil’s is the restaurant it crash next to. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  6. In his case, the field was solid, he just didn’t realize that it had a slight upslope until he was committed. I think the wheels being down would have helped in his situation either to absorb some of the impact or allowed him to roll a bit on the slope. I agree our seats aren’t designed for any type of crash absorption. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  7. I think the terrain will dictate some of that decision whether the attempt should be wheels up or down. A friend of mine did an emergency landing after his prop broke. Attempted to belly land in a field and ended up with broken backs for him and his passenger. Got to think that the wheels would have dissipated some of that downward force in his situation.

  8. Paint job looks the same as the news article. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  9. The lower EGT1 reading could be just the placement in the exhaust stack. I would go back and look at the earliest data you have and see if it is following the same trend as now. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  10. I agree with using a good cleaner that is friendly to electronics. A few years ago, 2017 to be exact, I was having problems with mine disengaging. I used Deep Creep from SeaFoam. The stuff is amazing. Starter has been working fine without the Bendix sticking. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  11. How about if it is changed to “Notices to Airpeeps” or “Notices to Airpats”? [emoji6] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  12. That’s not good. Does that look like an Ovation 3? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  13. Hey Don. I think the selling point of the Rosen’s the type of and color of the visor material. Have you explored using other types of plexiglass (acrylic or whatever you are using)? I like the blue color of the Rosen’s, just don’t like the sticker shock. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  14. These photos were taken before I did my interior. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  15. No, other than the one time on the starter bendix (which is still working great without any further lubrication). I was always concerned the Deep Creep would mess up the phenolic block. Still using silicone. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

  17. When I was eligible to remove the round gauges, I kept them because it took me some time to get used to looking at a number instead of a position on a round dial. After so many years of flying round gauges, it was hard to switch. I ended up flying partial panel, covering up the ASI until it became natural. Now I wonder if I could fly a round gauge again.

  18. The infamous shock cooling. Wonder how you would go about determining 50° per minute with a non graduated marked gauge? Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  19. Don’t you love it when a lawyer talks dirty. [emoji6][emoji1787] Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  20. You should rest your case. I never understood why a manufacturer would stoop to taking shots at another manufacturer’s instead of just promoting their own products. If your products are superior, owners will make that determination. You don’t think we talk amongst each other? Owners share their experiences with each about products and service on a regular basis. This far outweighs the negative smear campaigns any manufacturer makes against another. Maybe it is time you stay behind the curtains in the R&D and manufacturing parts of your business and let real marketing & sales people promote your products. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  21. I figured someone knew what I was talking about. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  22. A shop that is designated as a repair station is certified by the FAA under 14 CFR Part 145. This involves the shop being periodically inspected to verify the shop is operating using acceptable repair practices among other things. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  23. Don’t feel bad. I had one of these attached to my pitot tube. It worked great until one day it decided not to flip up. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  24. Cyan. Here is a good question. What color of diesel is in a farmer’s truck? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
