I looked on Ebay and did not see his add. I will look at my receipts and see if I can find you a name. Last time I saw his add he raised his price to $39.00.

I don’t think you need a gps to earn your instrument rating? Yes it seems a g375 would be a good choice? Since you are in Ky I suggest you you call Scott or Chuck at 513 735-9595. They helped me a couple years ago decide what to install. Pretty

I will measure mine for you when I get to the airport. I bought mine off ebay from a guy who makes them for 35 bucks. It is nice and worth the money. I could not make one as nice or one that fits so well.

VERY technical question. Can anyone tell me the thickness of the steel rod that makes up the above control lock. Mine has “disappeared “ and since they are asking $280.00 for a used one on eBay I thought I would just make up my own. Really annoyin

Don't know of any specific routings and have never seen any info for it other than it needs to clear the controls in all positions with out any sharp bends. Time to get under there and study the situation. Alan

The 375 looks like a great solution... ...except you’ll need to sort a few other things out. It doesn’t have an integrated NAV/COM, so you’ll need to keep your other two radios. To avoid having three CDIs (one for the GPS, one for NAV1, one for NAV

I agree with Sailor that an AP isn't needed for IFR training. That said, if you expect to continue 3 hour cross countries every week, the AP is a good investment in safety. Three hours of hand-flying IFR in a six pack is fatiguing and you'll arrive

Do you think the gnx 375 would be the best route? Or a 175 and a separate transponder?

Don’t even think about the autopilot right now. It isn’t needed. APs are at the end of the ‘nice to have’ avionics list. Put an IFR GPS and indicator in. If your transponder is old, replace it with an ADS transponder and have the GPS feed it.

I am looking for input on my dilemma. I have a 64 172e I bought from my dad. I have put 70 hours on a fresh o-300. The avionics are vintage IFR. The budget for an upgrade this year has increased from my first estimation. I have about $20,000 to

In the end, I was stating that running an engine over TBO is NOT always the best idea. I wasn't telling anybody what or how to run their engine. I've seen many engines well over TBO and just as many never reach TBO because of time and rust/corrosion.
