  1. Kinda' hard not to take advantage of upgrade discounts on some new hardware, so I started "round 2" of upgrades last week. Time to complete is about 3 1/2 weeks...with most of that waiting for JPI to process the exchange, programming, and shipping of an EDM930. They took my EDM900 in exchange for what I paid for it 4 years ago under a "Sun 'n Fun" special. Things on the docket for this round... Trade up G500 for G500Txi Install GCU485 PFD controller Trade up GTN750 for GTN750xi Remove KX165, install GTN650xi Trade JPI EDM900 for EDM930 Install Eaton l
  2. Hi Mooney K and Rocket owners, I'm seriously considering purchasing an M20K Rocket to upgrade from my current, well-equipped 1976 Arrow II. I'm new to the Mooney community, but have loved the look, speed, and efficiency of Mooney's since the 80s. I'm a PPL pilot with an instrument rating, about 530hrs TT and 330 hrs in an Arrow. If you're in the SoCal area and would like to share your experiences as an owner (I'm all ears) and a familiarization flight, please reply in the comments. Thanks! -Brian
  3. I've embarked on a panel-redo, and I've hit a snag and need some advice. My 67C had a shotgun panel that featured an EGT gauge and 4-cyl selector right in the middle of the panel. I plan to finish my IR this year, and want a six-pack instrument arrangement. The a/c has a Radair 4-cyl EGT with a single gauge and a selector switch. The panel mount rotary switch is 2-inches in diameter, about 2-1/4" dia. with wires attached. It is in the middle of the photo resting atop the TC. The single-channel EGT gauge itself is just below the AH. Re-designing the panel to have a six-pack ar

  5. HELP- I am doing a mini upgrade to my Cessna 340: having professionals add engine monitors, an aspen, a G5 on the FO side, and fixing the autopilot. While they are doing that, the wife and I have been keeping ourselves busy with the upgrades we can do: new carpet (kit from SCS) new fuel cap paint, O-rings new placards and circuit breaker panel lettering new leather like interior (we actually did this ourselves) all new seats (we skinned the 30 year leather off the old ones and had an upholstery shop do these) new paint (and some new pieces) o
  6. As you will see, my plane has been somewhat neglected over the years and is in need of some repairs and upgrades. Below is a list of the things I think need to be done and why, along with a cost estimate. I'd like the group to help me prioritize these items so as I have the money, I can begin knocking them off the list. Also, if you see something else that needs taken care of, let me know what, why, how much and where you would rank it. Obviously, this is a money constrained exercise or I would just do them all right now, so please, no suggestions that I need to replace my entire pan
  7. Good morning. I'm going to price some upgrades to my avionics and wanted to get your opinions on what I'm thinking of doing. I'm currently leaning towards a GTN650(sell the 430w) ps8000b audio, GTX345 adsb, upgrading the JPI700 to a 730(don't want to spend the $ on primary yet), gonna price GPSS for the Century 2b too. I will mostly use the iPad connected to the 650 for flight planning input and traffic. What do you guys think for replacing the separate NAV and Comm radios? Should I just ride them out as they function just fine? I'm holding out on autopilot upgrades and things like the G5
  8. I purchased a console headliner at Osh Kosh from plane plastics, the link can be seen here: http://www.planeplastics.com/airplanes/mooney/m20c-j/page17/k130079-037 It is the wrong part number and it is just now that I realized it. It is for some of the pre-J Mooney's just not my 1970 M20C I paid 256 dollars for it but will take 100 or any reasonable offer. It may be a little expensive to ship so if anyone picks it up at KLOU I will buy you lunch (Or I will ship it and add shipping costs to our negotiated price). It is brand new and has not been used. Regards, Jef

  10. I have a M20F 67 with a jbar and an stec 60 A/p. I was thinking of upgrading my yoke as the Ptt is closer than electric trim on the left YOKE. Any recommendations? Prefer the newer yokes. With a change in electric trim placement, a/p disconnect, and ptt I assume it's a 337? Any advice would be helpful. Thanks MICKEY IMG951130.3gp
  11. Not sure if anyone has seen this, but I recently worked with these folks (based at KBFI - Boeing Fiend, Seattle - one of my old stomping grounds) on my PMA450 - to-450A trade-up. Worked with Chase there, and had a wonderful transaction...exactly as specified, and will be getting the 450A plugged in this weekend. My shop in NY actually recommended them, as they knew I was looking to do this, and the 450A wasn't available when we did the cockpit upgrade last year. Sharing for visibility. https://avionicssource.com/special-offers/ Steve
  12. So, finally kicked off the big upgrade this past Monday. A few pics from end of week 1...after my nerves calmed a bit. Seriously, these guys are the best. Very happy with the first week's progress. Antennas from left...GA37 (GTN750 and GDL69), GA36 (future GTN650), and NGT-9000 Lynx WAAS antenna. Also added the Skywatch antenna to use the "+" feature of the Lynx's TAS/TCAS feature. More after end of week 2 next Friday.
  13. Hi all, Looking for some Midwest avionics shop recommendations. Looking to upgrade my GNS430, transponder and audio panel in my J. The big shops around southern Mi have big overhead and in the past I haven't had a flawless delivery yet from them. Bill
  14. Dear Mooney enthusiasts, I am currently a pilot with about 175 hours and close to finishing his instrument rating (already have high perf and complex). I currently own a 1974 180HP piper warrior, that I love and has served me wonderfully, but I am ready to start thinking about something that can do better cross country time and fuel efficiency. After much thought, I think a Mooney M20J/K is probably the plane that would suit me best. If the group wouldn't mind, I have a few questions that I would like some advice on; 1) Times: I am getting bored with the warrior and feel ready to upgr
