If you are going to completely replace the Narco tray with something else, may as well go with all-in-one Mode C/ADS-B Out like Stratus ESG. If you can find a low-cost used GTX-327, it's a good transponder, AND if installation cost is not an issue, g

Got the oil changed in the Bonanza today and (hopefully) fixed an issue with the air/oil separator and addressed a few other minor issues. Hot today, and supposed to be in the 90's over the weekend. This is unseasonably warm for this time of year.

I go light on the brakes to avoid flat spotting. Heat/wear doesn't even enter my mind in this airplane. Changing linings is a cakewalk, and the airplane just doesn't have enough kinetic energy during landing rollout/aborted takeoff to generate suffic

Anybody out there got a 337 handy that lists the weight savings between the old generator (mine is 20 amp) and an alternator. Also looking for the same for the original starter vs light weight starter for O-300. I don't need anything exact or a cop

Not looking for ADS-B out with this. I may or may not equip for ADS-B, I rarely fly in controlled airspace. If I do I am leaning towards another Garmin unit or the uAvionix Sky beacon. The 327 is a more modern digital unit just to replace the old NAR

I just happened to see on a Canadian buy and sell someone selling a led landing light par 46. As per buy and sell asking price is usually higher than purchase cost https://www.kijiji.ca/v-cars-other/barri...urce=ios_social Located in Ontario.
