Good evening everyone, beautiful day today with a high of 91F and light winds. Got to spend a lazy day with the family and now sitting outside with a beverage watching the kids play. Hope you all are having a great weekend!

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

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

Last night I finally was able to get the LED bulbs installed. It was not easy as I tried several nights in row with no luck. It is very tight inside that light and the light sockets on the LED bulbs are very soft. They dented very easy which made it

As far as instructing? I believe he is. He is on another forum/Facebook group I am part of and he's a regular on there. Is there something in particular that you are looking for?

I rent planes...the one school wants at least 50K hull coverage because they said a prop strike cost about 50K. I fly/rent a friends plane since he lost his medical. So far so good for both of us.

This article by Luca Benicini-Tibo on back up nav stuff is pretty good. I recall flying near some complex airspace (TFRs, lots of fire retardant tankers in/out bound, etc.) when the guy next to me who was directing the show had his iPad shut down.

Thanks ytodd. The shotgun worked. Maybe some hunting with it this year. I got the construction trailer wired in today, but I didn't get much else done. Beautiful day. I'm just going to enjoy the rest of it from the deck.
