    Yeah but I wasn’t there nor any of my women. That would be the real test. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    If that is Becca, then that is probably Byron standing next to the Reaper. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro

  5. ADSB Tracking

    And this is where the data privacy laws are coming into play. Parts of the world have some pretty rigid privacy laws already in place and it will be interesting to see how this plays out in this arena. We already have data privacy issues with tracking cookies on the internet and who knows what other information is being gathered and by whom. I’m sure there are some people of importance out there who have no desire to be tracked. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. ADSB Tracking

    There is a list the FAA publishes with the 2 classes of ADS-B data consumers available. Many are commercial operations, flight schools, etc. who have a legitimate reason for tracking. Others like FlightAware and FlightRadar are selling services tied to it. The NBAA was very active a few years ago to push through legislation that converted the old BARR program to the current FAA’s Aircraft Situation Display to Industry (ASDI) Block program. If you do the full block on the FAA site, all of these will not receive the data feed. And despite claims by some like FlightAware, if you go for the partial block, they don’t give you access to your plane’s data for free (in other words, although others can’t see your flight data, neither can you unless you pay for it).

  8. ADSB Tracking

    What FlightAware doesn't tell you in the fine print is that this costs you $250 to setup and $75 a month to keep it active. I elected turn my tracking back on.
  9. Got me an F Model!

    More pictures please. Always like to see what people have done to their F models.
  10. Is your oil cooler in the factory location or has it been relocated?
  11. I thought I would start this thread to capture resources needed for the ADS-B mandate: Interactive site that shows the ADS-B coverage by type: https://www.faa.gov/nextgen/programs/adsb/ICM/ Link to an interactive Google Earth site that allows you to search for airports to show whether ADS-B out is required (also helped validate why active traffic is not such a bad thing - check out the video): https://www.faa.gov/nextgen/equipadsb/airspace/ The flight test requirements (section 4.3): https://www.faa.gov/documentLibrary/media/Advisory_Circular/AC_20-165B.pdf The FAA's rebate program website: https://www.faa.gov/nextgen/equipadsb/rebate/ Hope this helps.

  15. We should try to compare some actual numbers. I know OAT and whether running lean or rich of peak will have an influence. You have any temps recorded while running ROP? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  16. Nav/Com Advice

    The second Com isn’t thought about much until you need it. I have a GTN 650 as the primary and had a Narco MK20 D+ as the backup. I lost the 650 on an IFR due to interference caused by a newly installed JPI 900. My Narco decided it was time to take a rest. Made for an interesting flight. I elected to pull the Narco and installed a Garmin GNC 255B. Great radio with nice features. If you intend on going IFR, you will want a decent #2 that you can rely on.

  18. The original designed ram air on my F (which is only a few serial numbers from Matt’s) will produce and extra 1.25” of MP. If the new air box located in the high pressure area drops that delta significantly, it may well be worth closing it off and getting rid of that expensive boot. If it still provides a significant MP boost, it sounds like it would be best to relocate the oil cooler to make more room upfront. Really anxious to see Matt’s performance numbers.

  19. ADSB Tracking

    I actually turned off my tracking with the FAA site. I thought based on what I read on the FlightAware site that I could continue to track my own flights but no one else can see them. You can. It only costs $250 to set up the service and $75 per month to show your flights. When you request to turn off the tracking, it is done on the first Thursday of the next month. Same if you want to turn it back on. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  20. WTB tow bar

    I have a brand new 7000# version with the ball hitch. Was planning on using it with my converted tractor but got my Lug Bug working again. http://m.aircraftspruce.com/catalog/pspages/brackettuniversaltowbars3.php?clickkey=148505 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  21. EDM 900 owners

    JPI is pretty good at denying problems until you squeeze them. This issue was caused by RF interference created by the remote fault indicator (not the sensor I call it in the video). Final resolution was to put a ferrite filter (like what find on a computer power cable) on the indicator’s lead. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    What fitting do you want on the tow side? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  23. ADSB Tracking

    I’m not a big fan of the always tracking mode. The only advantage is when I shoot a lot of approaches near the Bravo with other clowns doing the same, there would be no doubt it was them and not me that busted the Bravo.
  24. When do you retract flaps after take-off?

    Finally a topic other than ROP versus LOP, flaps up versus flaps down or skinny women versus fat women. Refreshing to say the least. And, oh, I am a brake stomper - guilty as charged.
  25. What is this switch

    What's attached on the other side?
